Sausage Balls


Here’s a nifty little appetizer that basically requires only three ingredients, but if you have time, inclination and resources, you can jazz up the recipe with all sorts of flavors.  I used my stand mixer with the dough hook to mix everything together, which made it a breeze.  If you need appetizers for a large crowd, you can make a couple of batches ahead of time.  Just form the balls and freeze them, and then bake as needed.  They also go well with a cup of soup for lunch, and make a great after-school snack for the kids.  Provide some dipping sauces (ranch, sweet chili sauce, ketchup(!), etc), your kids will love ya’ !

Sausage Balls (the basic recipe)

1 lb sausage meat (your favorite kind)

3 cups Bisquick mix

4 cups grated cheddar cheese

1/8 – 1/4 cup milk, if needed

Mix all ingredients together.  If mixture seems too dry to stick together,  add some milk, a bit at a time.  Form into 1″ balls.  Place on baking sheets lined with parchment.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes until golden brown.  Serve immediately. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.


– add 1/2 cup grated parmesan or asagio cheese

– stir in a little something for heat:  red chili paste, some red pepper flakes, or cayenne pepper

– choose one or two of these in small amounts:  sage, marjoram, poultry seasoning, thyme, cumin, chili powder

– sprinkle in some onion or garlic powder
