These biscuit mix (Bisquick ) cheesy sausage balls are a holiday staple as an appetizer and also grace many a table for holiday breakfasts as well! Only three ingredients and you have a delicious snack or side.
In a large bowl, combine the ground sausage, biscuit baking mix and shredded cheese.
Form into 24 golf ball sized balls and place on baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown and the sausage is cooked through entirely.
Remove and serve hot!
Tips & Tricks
Don't use bagged shredded cheese in these. You need the moisture that comes with freshly shredded block cheese. The cheese shreds in the bag are dry and you will end up with a dry product.
You can definitely change up the type of cheese to whatever flavor you prefer, but a sharp old cheddar is delicious!
If the batter seems dry, add in a 1/4 cup of milk.
If your sausage isn't that greasy, you also might have to add in milk.
Here in Canada we don't usually get the 1lb packs of spiced ground pork sausage (if we do, please let me know where, I have been looking!) and I simply took breakfast sausages out of their casings and used that instead. That seemed to be a little dryer than it should be, so I added in 2 tbsp of milk to help. I would add in the 1/4 cup next time for sure.
Add in some spices like cayenne if you want - I LOVED mine with the chives! I would use fresh minced green onion in my next batch for sure.These are easy to customize.
