Sausage balls are the ultimate party food. They’re so easy to make, can be made in advance and reheated easily, and they’re a definite crowd pleaser.
I have tried many different sausage ball recipes over the years, but this one is definitely the winner. It has just the right amount of cheese, meat and spice! I made them this past weekend for my boyfriend Cody’s graduation party, and they were gone in no time. Here’s how you make this simple and delicious hors d’oeuvre:
Yield: about 80 balls
What You’ll Need:
- 1 pound ground hot sausage
- 1 pound ground mild/regular sausage
- 6 cups of sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- 4 cups of Bisquick mix
- 2 tsp of hot sauce
- 2 tsp of red pepper flakes
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
What You’ll Do:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Place sausage in a large mixing bowl and break up the meat.
- Add the rest of your ingredients to the bowl and combine, mixing until you have formed a solid ball of dough. *Note*: using your hands to combine the ingredients is way easier than trying to do it with a spoon!
- Roll your dough into 1-inch balls and put them on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Cook at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until the sausage balls are firm and golden brown.
It’s as easy as that! These are great for parties, appetizers, or even just for snacking throughout the day. You can’t beat classic sausage balls–try this recipe and enjoy!
