These cheesy sausage balls are great for anytime that you have a get-together. Everybody loves them and they get gobbled up quick! You can make them ahead of time, bake, cool and freeze, then reheat in the oven as needed.

  • 2 oz
    cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/8 tsp
    seasoned salt
  • 1 lb
    ground pork breakfast sausage, uncooked
  • 8 oz
    sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 c
    biscuit mix



  1. Lightly spray a 9"x13" pan with cooking spray or butter lightly.
  2. In a large bowl, use a fork to combine cream cheese with seasoned salt and beat until fluffy.
  3. Add sausage and cheese and, using your hands, mix very well until the cream cheese is incorporated. (TIP: Use food safe plastic gloves to save your hands from a messy clean-up.)
  4. Add biscuit mix and continue to mix well. (This is a stiff dough and it takes some time and patience. Don't be tempted to add any liquid or it will not turn out right.)
  5. Place oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Take a medium pinch of the dough and roll into a ball about the size of a small walnut and place in prepared pan. Continue making balls until dough is gone.
  7. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Remove foil, rotate pan and bake for another 20 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and quickly remove sausage balls from fat in pan and place on paper towels.
  10. Arrange on serving plate and serve hot or at room temperature.
  11. Place any leftovers in an airtight refrigerator container, or zipper bag, and keep refrigerated. May be frozen and reheated.
