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!

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 probably should 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!
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.

  1. These are AWESOME! They are one of those snacks that as you are making them you feel you have a lot. But once you put them out for people to eat, they go really fast. .Everybody LOVES them!!! Thanks for sharing all of the tips😁

  2. Is there any way to get some eggs in here too? You know, a one stop shop for breakfast. Growing up in the South, I’ve always loved Sausage Balls, but now with being such a busy mom, it would be great to incorporate eggs as well…making them a perfect on the go snack

    • Amanda Bodine on

      I think it would just depend on how long. I’ve honestly eat them at room temperature a lot and they still taste great.

  3. I got about 40 out of one batch. I would definitely recommend greasing the tin foil before baking. Every bottom of each one stuck to the tin foil and I had to pretty much rip them off. Very frustrating!!!

  4. Delicious. I love these better than the ones I used to make without the cream cheese. They are more moist. They freeze well raw. Just thaw them before baking for best result. Can cook from frozen but will need to increase cook time.

  5. I love these! I keep a tiny bowl of olive oil next to me as I roll them into balls. I just dip my fingers in every so often and spread the oil on my palms, it keeps the mixture from sticking as much! Now for the mixing, it’s gonna get stuck either way, so I skip the oil for that part. :D

  6. I made these and felt they were pretty weak. I really couldn’t taste the sausage. Next time hot sausage or add some green chili’s. My dad loved them.

    • I’m sure that would be great too! we aren’t spicy people so that’s why I make it this way but your idea sounds great!

  7. Fresh grated cheese is much better since previously shredded at stores has flour added to keep it from sticking together.

    • I keep these made up , And in my Freezer all the time ,not just during the
      A coupleother tips that make leasier to prepare a better tasting Sausage Balls
      1) Set Cream Cheese out to Soften
      2) Use the Dough Hook on Mixer when Mixing Sausage Balls . I have Kitchen Aid but any Mixer with Dough Hook will work
      3) Shred Block of Cheese Do not buy already Shredded they add wax to pre shredder Cheese that can effect way Sausage Balls turn out
      3) meat Baller is the perfect Size to prepare Sausage Balls
      My Family Loves Sausage Balls for Snacks and they like them as Breakfast with Egg and Biscuits or Toast
      TO FREEZE SAUSAGE BALLS FLASH FREEZE THEM LAYING SINGLE ROLL IN SHEET PAN. THEN CAN ADD TO FREEZER BAG AFTER THEY FREEZE. YOU CAN TAKE OUT HOW MANY NEEDED. INCREASE COOKING TIME BY 3 TO 5 MINUTES NO NEED TO THAW. I USALLY MAKE UP ABOUT 50 TO 100 AT A TIME

    • For a single batch my rough guess is around 24 but I think probably more if you make them a little smaller. A lot of time I’ll make a double batch and it makes a lot!

    • It depends on how big or small you make the balls. I haven’t counted but for a single batch 24ish? I can fill a small cookie sheet.

  8. Oh wow, I’ve never heard of sausage balls made with cream cheese, but I’m betting they are absolutely delicious!! Yum, must try soon! :)

  9. Yum! I looooove sausage balls. I make mine almost exactly the same but I’ve never used cream cheese. It sounds heavenly! I also like to use the spicy sausage bc it adds a very small kick.
