Sausage Cheese Balls! Super Bowl Foodie fridays from Kuhlreads

Foodie Fridays


 Sausage Cheese Balls

These freeze perfectly so you can make them ahead of time.
This item will probably be the first thing to go at your get-together. The picture shows exactly what they will look like straight from the oven.
  • 3 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick)
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage (uncooked)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (pre-shredded in a bag is fine)
  • 4 tablespoons water (or use 2 tbsp hot sauce and 2 tbsp water)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Break ground sausage into hunks first (this will make it easier to work with). Then, mix all ingredients well (by hand or stand mixer) in large bowl. If using stand mixer, mix in 2 half batches if necessary.
  3. Continue “kneading” the mixture until the mix holds together and there are no unincorporated ingredients in the bottom of the bowl. This might take a few minutes, but it will all come together.
  4. Shape mixture into balls, rolling in your hand until they’re smooth.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (for easy clean-up) and spray lightly with cooking spray. Place sausage balls on aluminum foil covered pan so they are not touching.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. Use a spatula transfer sausage balls to serving tray.
Serve with a variety of squeeze bottle mustards.
If you want to make these ahead of time, go ahead and prepare it as stated above, and let them cool completely after baking. Freeze in freezer bags until needed. Reheat by microwaving in 10 second increments until hot.
