Perfectly cooked and nicely browned, these sausage balls really hit the spot! They make a fantastic breakfast, snack, or even appetizer. We love to serve these with maple syrup or gravy for dipping.

And the recipe couldn’t be easier. Just mix together ground sausage, cream cheese, and Bisquick baking mix. You don’t even need to brown the sausage first. Combine the mixture and roll into balls. Then bake and enjoy! You’ll love this meal idea for hosting guests or batch prepping a week’s worth of breakfasts.

How To Make Sausage Balls With Cream Cheese

First prep your cream cheese. It needs to be soft in order to mix with the other ingredients. Leave it out on the kitchen counter for an hour or microwave it (unwrapped) for 30 seconds to soften it up.

Add ground sausage to a mixing bowl. Pour in Bisquick. Finally, add the softened cream cheese.

Mix with a fork or other kitchen utensil until blended. Then use your hands to roll mixture into meatballs–about the size of golfballs.

Place meatballs on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until sausage balls are golden brown and cooked through.

Remove sausage balls from oven and allow to cool before serving.

Why Are My Sausage Balls So Dry?

If the sausage balls bake up too dry, the culprit may be the ratio of sausage and cream cheese to baking mix. You can use a little less Bisquick or add milk (a tablespoon at a time) to balance it out.

Do You Cook Sausage Balls Before Freezing?

You can freeze cooked or uncooked sausage balls to have at a later date. Then thaw them out and bake or reheat as necessary.
