Lip Smacking Good Sausage Balls

These are not your Mama’s sausage balls……………. they’re better!!

These are fabulous for a holiday party or even just for a Sunday afternoon watching football with the family.

When you are making these, you might want to make a double batch or maybe even a triple batch. These are great to make, roll and then freeze. Then you can pop them out of the freezer and into the oven when guests show up unexpectedly.

We hope y’all enjoy them as much as we do!!

Make it a great day, you deserve it!

Lip Smacking Good Sausage Balls

Lip Smacking Good Sausage Balls

2 1/2 cups baking mix

2 1/2 cups sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese

1 lb hot sausage (we use Jimmy Dean)

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 or 3 green onions finely chopped (green tops only)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Break apart sausage into a mixing bowl

Add remainder of ingrediants

Using your fingers, mix this all together. It is gonna take a bit of work but don’t worry, it really does all mix together to form a dough.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet

Bake for 20 – 24 minutes

Remove from cookie sheet right away


Makes approximately 5 dozen

If you would like to freeze these, put them on a cookie sheet and instead of baking, pop them into the freezer until firm. You can then plop them all into a zip lock and freeze until you are ready to use. You will need to extend the baking a few minutes when baking from a frozen state.

    • The only problem I have with the food processor is that it makes the pieces of cheese so small. I use the regular shredded cheese (not fancy or fine shred) specifically because of that. Although I have to agree, not having the dough under your nails would be nice LOL
