Recipes - Sausage Balls

It only calls for three ingredients: ground pork sausage (hot or mild depending on your preference), shredded Cheddar cheese, and store-bought baking mix, such as Bisquick. Believe it or not, you’ll start with the sausage uncooked because the grease in the pork helps bind the balls together. You can also substitute your favorite kind of shredded cheese (like pepper Jack or Gouda) for a more unique flavor.

  • 1 pound bulk sausage (hot or mild)
  • 1 pound shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups Bisquick
  • 1 tablespoon Spice Krewe Bayou Seasoned Salt (or substitute with Spice Krewe Bayou Blend or Bayou Burn)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)
  2. Begin by mixing the uncooked sausage and baking mix thoroughly with your hands until well combined.
  3. Once the mixture is consistent, add the shredded cheese and blend until it’s fully incorporated.
  4. Shape mixture into ¾ to 1-inch balls by rolling in the palms of your hands, and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F until golden brown and crispy, about 20-25 minutes.
