This easy sausage cheese balls recipe is made without Bisquick or a baking mix. It’s the perfect party appetizer, a must-have for a brunch buffet, or even makes for an easy make-ahead breakfast on the go.
We all have ideas of classic party appetizers we love and have to have at every gathering. For me, one of those is homemade sausage balls.
We’d make them at least once a year during the holidays when I was growing up. I always look forward to them being a bit crunchy on the outside but soft and tender on the inside.
My mom would make them with a baking mix back then. This time I wanted to make my sausage balls recipe without Bisquick though.
I love baking and generally do so from scratch which means I usually don’t have something like Bisquick on hand. Instead of making a special trip to the store or letting the rest of the box sit in the pantry for months going bad I make sausage cheese balls without Bisquick.
This doesn’t require a lot of additional ingredients. In fact, you probably already have them all on hand and you know for sure the quality of ingredients you’re using. Here’s what I use.
1 pound sausage
4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
3 cups baking mix
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, combine the sausage, cheese, and dry baking mix. Mix together, and shape mixture into walnut-sized balls. Place on a foil-lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.
