Party Favorite Cream Cheese Sausage Balls

Love this? Share it!

I really think I could eat these Cream Cheese Sausage Balls every day and die happy. It’s probably my favorite appetizer and they are delicious, so what’s not to love?!

These sausage balls have become my go-to recipe for any party with a big group and I take every chance I can to make them and share! Once you make them for yourself, you’ll see why!

Not only are these one of the easiest appetizer recipes around (only four ingredients!), they’re also the perfect thing to serve at your game day watch-party, holiday gathering, or just whenever the mood strikes! But be warned, they’ll go fast!

This is also a great make-ahead recipe that you can assemble the night before you want to bake them. You could just pop them in the oven right before the big game, a baby shower, or Christmas breakfast!

Why Sausage Balls are the Perfect Holiday Party Food

  1. They’re easy to make! You’ve got plenty to do already!
  2. They’re delicious. Yes, they’re simple, but they’re soooo good!
  3. The recipe yields a lot! Depending on the size you make them you can easily get a few dozen sausage balls out of this recipe.
  4. They’re easy to grab and go! You don’t need utensils for this yummy treat. Put a few on a plate or napkin and you’re good to go!

This recipe will make about two dozen sausage balls (enough to fill a small baking sheet), but you could easily make them smaller to yield more per batch! But however many sausage balls you think you need, you should probably make more. They’re just that good!

Party Favorite Cream Cheese Sausage Balls

Easy and delicious Cream Cheese Sausage Balls made with only four ingredients! A perfect party food your crowd will love!A few tips before you get started:

  • You could easily spice these sausage balls up with a dash of red pepper or by adding spicy sausage. It’s your call!
  • You may want to spray your foil with cooking spray or use a non-stick foil before baking if you find your sausage balls are sticking to the pan.
  • Did you run out of Bisquick baking mix? I’ve used flour before as a substitute and had really good results!
  • Serve them right out of the oven or let them sit for a bit, either way they’ll be eaten right up!

Sausage Ball Ingredients:

Party Favorite Cream Cheese Sausage Balls Ingredients

  • 1 lb of sausage (raw)
  • 1 8 oz. block of cream cheese
  • 1 Cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 Cup of Bisquick baking mix

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 F.

2. Take the sausage and cream cheese and add to a large mixing bowl. I like to place them in the microwave for 30 second to heat them up slightly so its not quite so cold when I mix the ingredients with my hands.

3. Add the Bisquick and cheddar cheese to the sausage and cream cheese.

4. Now it’s time to get your hands dirty and mix all the ingredients until combined in a large ball.

I’ve made sausage balls before, but with this recipe adding cream cheese it makes them so much more moist! Such a great idea! Thank you for sharing, I didn make mine a little bit bigger so I did have to cook them a little bit longer. This is definitely my new go to sausage ball recipe!
