Original Sausage Balls

3 scant cups Bisquick baking mix

1 pound pork sausage at room temperature (I use ‘hot’)

16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (4 cups)

1/4 cup chopped fresh chives or parsley (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a stand mixer and mix at low speed using the paddle attachment (or mix by hand) until all ingredients are evenly combined.

Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on a baking sheet one inch apart. I used my handy-dandy cookie scoop to make quick work out of portioning these. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom.


  • I ALWAYS use Jimmy Dean sausage in these.
  • I used hot sausage with these and I thought they were perfect (and definitely not too hot for the little people). Cheddar cheese just goes so well with a touch of heat. If you use regular or mild sausage, consider adding a little cayenne pepper!
