Sausage Balls


12 Servings (About 50 Balls)

Prep Time: 15 Minutes. Cook Time: 15 Minutes

These are such a great cocktail party snack. They are so easy toeat and taste great. I also like to make these as an hors d'oeuvreat brunch parties. It is important to use freshly shredded cheese as it gives the dough more moisture.


  • 1 Pound Hot Italian Sausage, Casings Removed

  • 2 ½ Cups Baking Mix (I use Bisquick)

  • 3 Cups Freshly Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

  • ¼ Cup Heavy Cream


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the sausage meat, baking mix, and cheese. Use your hands to completely mix until well blended. The dough will be crumbly. Use your hands to roll into 1 ½ inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each sausage ball with heavy cream. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
