Sausage Balls Ingredients
Sausage balls are traditionally made with ground pork. I like to use a mixture of spicy pork sausage and regular pork sausage.
It keeps them seasoned and flavorful, but not too spicy for the average person.
However, YES, you can use all spicy ground pork sausage to make them spicy sausage balls or all plain pork sausage to avoid any slight heat.
You will also want to use good sharp cheddar cheese and milk to keep them moist!
Lastly, I always add a splash of Worcestershire sauce and Italian seasoning to add a depth of flavor.
How to make Bisquick Sausage Balls
These Bisquick Sausage Balls couldn’t be any easier to whip together and my kids love to help roll them!
All you need to do is combine all ingredients in a large bowl (a hand mixer or stand mixer make this much easier).
Then roll the mixture with your hands into golf ball sized balls and place on a baking sheet.
Bake them for 20 to 25 minutes and they are ready to serve!
Can you prepare sausage balls ahead of time?
YES! Not only are these sausage balls delicious, but they are also a great make ahead party appetizer.
You can roll them and place them on cookie sheets and then wrap them with cling wrap.
Store in the fridge for up to 24 hours before the party and pop them into the oven when your guests arrive.
Can you freeze sausage balls?
Also, YES! You can freeze uncooked sausage balls in an airtight container for up to 4 months.
Place the sausage balls on a baking sheet in the freezer and once they’re frozen, you can transfer them to a ziplock freezer bag.
When you are ready to bake them, take them out of the freezer and let them thaw for 20 to 30 minutes and then bake.
