Easy Sausage Balls

Easy Sausage Balls

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups biscuit baking mix
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion - optional
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped green pepper - optional
These sausage balls really are easy to make. You basically throw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix, roll and bake. You'll want to get your hands dirty on this one. Mixing is far easier with your hands than with a spatula. Be careful not to roll your balls to big or you'll need to extend the cooking time. These balls taste best if you let them cool to just slightly above room temperature. For a real treat, consider making some Country-Style Pepper Gravy for dipping or to cover your balls. (This recipe was submitted in 2002. It was tested and I photographed my balls in August 2014.)

How To Make Easy Sausage Balls

In large bowl combine all ingredients. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on baking pan. (If needed, add a splash of milk to make balls easier to roll).

Bake at 350 degrees F for 7 to 10 minutes, until sausage is completely done.

Note From Mr Breakfast

For the balls you see here, I used Bisquick baking mix. I opted to use the optional onions and I used an Anaheim chili pepper instead of green pepper.

Easy Sausage Balls

Great for a party snack or as a side with omelets, etc. If you like, try using spicy sausage and a chili pepper to make a Spicy Sausage Balls.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank laurynlynch for this recipe.

I had to add a splash of milk to make it soft enough to roll the balls. Turned out good though. I'd add some finely chopped onion or other vegetable next time.

Sausage balls are great for the holidays and kids love to help make them. If you don't like them then don't eat them.

No matter what that other person says.... sausage balls are a great treat for anyone. Nobody says you have to eat them all of the time, but they sure do make a quick and easy (not to mention great tasting) snack around the holiday season!

But once in awhile especially holiday time, they are delicious ! Just don't make them into a meal... snacks for several are fine.

Tastes wonderful but wreaks havoc in the digestive tract because carbs and protein eaten together will not digest properly. It rots in the tract because normal digestion is delayed/held up sometimes 4-6-12 hrs. (Takes 2 hours for carbs (the biscuit mix) to normally digest, and 3-4 hours for protein (the sausage) to digest. Mix them together and you get gas, bloating, headache, and/or stomach ache. Name your poison. Sorry, but that's a sad fact in my world of healthy eating.
