Sausage Balls

Freezing the sausage balls
I love sausage balls. They are so easy and so good.  I like the fact that I can make a bunch of them and freeze them.  If I have some unexpected guests, I have a delicious appetizer ready to go.  I have also serve these for breakfast with biscuits.  Yum!
I like them spicy. If you want them to be spicy, use spicy sausage. So easy. You don't have to worry about adding additional spices they are in the sausage.  If you want to go all out you can make your own sausage. (Yes, I have made my own sausage and yes it is amazing).

Sausage Balls

1 lb (.45 kg) of Sausage
8 ounces (227 g) of Cream Cheese
1 1/4 Cups (175 g) of Baking Mix
1 1/4 Cups (155 g) of Cheddar Cheese

All of the ingredients ready to mix

Mix all of the ingredients together with a dough hook.

All of the ingredients mixed together

Make into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake in a 400F/204C/ Gas Mark 6 oven for 20-25 minutes. Or freeze and then place in a plastic bag.  When ready to cook, bake in a 400F/204C/ Gas Mark 6 oven for 30 minutes.

The bottom line: will I make this again? Yes, I love them. I have a couple of bags of them frozen in my deep freezer.


  1. Hi Amy, If serving these as an appetizer, what would you recommend as a second or third item? Thanks.

  2. I like to have a mixture of sausage balls, spinach balls, and olive puffs.
