Ingredients Needed for Sausage Balls

See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

Gather up the short list of simple ingredients to get started. You can easily see why this is my favorite recipe for sausage balls.

  • Original Bisquick– buy at the store of make your own!
  • cheddar cheese – You can use other types of cheese but I really like cheddar
  • spicy sausage – If you’re not a fan of spice, use regular pork sausage instead!
  • milk – I tend to use 2% milk but really any will do.


Even though this Bisquick Sausage Ball recipe is pretty straight-forward, there is always wiggle room to change things up a bit!

  • You can easily make this sausage ball recipe less spicy by using a mild, sage sausage, or even a sweet sausage in place of the spicy sausage. Turkey Sausage works, too!
  • Try out different dips to see if these cheesy sausage balls can stand alone or are better with more flavors.
  • Add on some fun toppings like parmesan cheese or a fresh slice of jalapeno to give it even more depth.
  • You can even make your own Homemade Bisquick Mix biscuit mix if you are out at home.
  • My kids really love to eat these meatballs with cheese.Pepper jackcheese is great to have shredded over the top as is sharp cheddar cheeseas well. You can add the cheese right to the mixture, too.
  • I like adding in ateaspoonof garlic powdersometimes as well.

How To Make Sausage Balls

  1. Mix Ingredients: Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl. TIP: Using a stand mixer makes this job much easier!
  2. Form the sausage balls: Form into balls using hands or s small scoop. A cookie scoopworks best to make 1-inch balls. I tend to keep them a bit smaller to cut down oncaloriesand to keep them that classicmeatball size.
  3. Add to baking sheet: Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake: Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. These would be great with honey mustard or marinara. Ranch dressing is also a favorite!
