Easy Sausage Balls
Sausage Balls are a great easy appetizer to take to parties but also to have around the house for breakfast. I pretty much only make these around the holidays. However, I decided to make these to take with us on our recent trip to Grand Cayman. They are easy to put in a zip lock bag and carry with you. Also, turns out that they were great for us because food is SO expensive in Grand Cayman. We went to the grocery store and bought fruit and eggs and had sausage balls, fruit, and eggs several mornings for breakfast. We also snacked on them while traveling to Grand Cayman.
You can also make them up into balls, stick them in the freezer (on the pan) to slightly freeze, and then put in a ziplock bag for storage. Then, you can just take them out and cook however many you need/want at the time.
1 pound of hot ground pork sausage
2 cups of Bisquick
1 pound of cheddar cheese, shredded
The sausage is easier to work with if you sit it out on the counter to get room temp. Once it is room temp, combine the sausage and cheese (with your hands is the best way) until completely combined. Do not buy the pre-shredded bag cheese. Buy the cheese blocks and grate yourself…it is so much better.
After the cheese and sausage is combined add the Biscuick mix and combine well. Your hands will get tired, but you want to make sure everything is thoroughly combined so that you do not have dry crumbly sausage balls.
Also, I like to make my balls a little larger than most people. The size of the sausage balls is completely preference.
Once you have them done and on a cookie sheet, bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. You will adjust the time as needed for bigger sausage balls.
Make sure you do not over cook them. No one likes burnt sausage balls.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this recipe for easy sausage balls. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been talking about my Grand Cayman trip and these were kind of a part of it so I thought I would go ahead and include the recipe I use.
