Sausage Balls

Pin this Post on Pinterest Share on Facebook

Some of my most favorite recipes are simple ones.  I like things that are clean and uncomplicated.  One of my most favorite things is hot cake right out of the oven, without frosting or anything.  I always hope that my cakes rise a bit too high so I can shave off the top and get a taste while it’s warm.  I guess that’s why I’m a big sausage ball fan.  They have always been high on the list of party foods at our house, especially during the holidays.  The simple ingredients and prep make them easy to put together and easy to clean up after.   Even Jack loves sausage balls; chances are your kid will love them too.  This recipe is pretty versatile also.  You can use spicy sausage to give them a kick or stir in some garlic powder and your favorite spices to mix it up a little.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups baking mix (i.e., Bisquick)
  • 3 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large bowl, combine sausage, cheese, and baking mix.  It’s best to use your hands here.  Then add the water gradually until it gets to the right consistency to roll into balls.
  2. Next, roll into balls about an inch to inch and a quarter in size and place on an ungreased baking sheet.  Although, I prefer to cook mine on a Silpat mat or parchment paper.  (Have I told y’all how much I love my Silpat mats?)
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

    I just love these things! They are always on my “list” of goodies for the Holidays and of course other celebrations! I’d like to share with you my recipe for a dip for them I came up with years ago. May not sound like it would be good, but it is. Hope you don’t mind. Enjoy!

    Dip For Sausage Balls

    3/4 cup chili sauce — Heinz® brand is best
    1 Tablespoon horseradish — * see note
    2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    2 Tablespoons red wine — * see note
    1 dash Tabasco sauce

    Mix all ingredients well.
    Serve with sausage balls.

    *NOTE: You may increase the amounts of horseradish and red wine to suit your individual taste.
    This could be 1 to 3 Tablespoons more of each ingredient.

  3. My family loves these too! We love them with spicy mustard. I usally make extra and stick the cookie sheet in freezer and then put the frozen balls in ziploc bags and cook a few whenever we want them. Thanks!

  4. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I absolutely love this recipe. I made some this past weekend and my friends loved them! I usually use honey mustard as a dipping sauce to bring a little sweetness.

  5. Stacey, we made these today but made half of the balls with some cut up cilantro and scallions. They were really good too and it made a good selection. Also, we made a really yummy dip too:

    1 cup dukes mayo
    3ish tablespoons of grey poupon country style
    And a big squirt (to taste) of creamy horseradish sauce by bookbinders sassy brand

    I always love these things when we stop by your moms for Christmas and was glad to see them on your site!

  6. Rolled mine in fresh parmesan cheese after baking and cooled. Fancy! I’m going to try this with turkey sausage and lowfat cheese. Great recipe and a lot of fun to serve with dips! Everybody, including kids, like this recipe!
