Years ago, my children were watching Trisha Yearwood’s cooking show (they are still fans to this day) and she was making these “sausage hors d’oeuvres” as she called them. My kids thought they looked like the best thing ever and demanded (ok they asked nicely) that we make them right away. We did and they were just as amazing as they looked! Also known as Bisquick Sausage Balls or Sausage Cheese Balls, these little bite sized snacks were beyond delicious.

HOW TO MAKE CREAM CHEESE SAUSAGE BALLS

Not only are these Sausage Balls super tasty, but they are also incredibly easy to make. This time around I decided to kick up the flavor by adding cream cheese and a few seasonings to the mix. Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make Bisquick Sausage Balls:

MY LATEST VIDEOS

  • 1 (16-ounce) package ground pork country sausage
  • Cream cheese
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Bisquick
  • Seasonings (Garlic powder, onion powder, sage, parsley)
  • Milk

Combine the ingredients in a large bowl. I recommend using a stand mixer or a hand mixer to combine the ingredients as the mixture is quite thick. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and form the sausage balls either with your hands or using a cookie scoop for uniform sized balls. Arrange them on the baking sheet close together but not touching. Because they don’t flatten out as they bake you can fit a lot more on the baking sheet than if you were making cookies.

They take about half an hour to bake and you can eat them pretty much right away. Be sure to have some barbecue sauce on hand for dipping!

CAN YOU FREEZE BISQUICK SAUSAGE BALLS?

Absolutely! Allow the Sausage Cheese Balls to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container or ziploc freezer bag. They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or the freezer for up to 6 months. To reheat, bake at the same temperature until heated all the way through (10 minutes or so). Microwave defrosted sausage balls by wrapping with a damp towel and heating for 30 seconds to a minute on high. The damp towel will keep the balls from drying out.

HOW TO SERVE CREAM CHEESE SAUSAGE BALLS

We love to dip! I serve these Sausage Cheese Balls with barbecue sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s Spicy BBQ Sauce is our favorite). These would also be delicious with ranch dressing or a honey mustard dip. We usually serve them with fancy toothpicks, but these little bamboo picks are adorable too.
