Bisquick Sausage Balls are one of those recipes that invoke nostalgic memories. They make a great party appetizer, holiday breakfast or kids snack.
Of course they can be made from scratch, too. But using store-bought or homemade Bisquick mix certainly makes preparing them easy and quick.
The addition of sharp cheese, like Cheddar or Parmesan, and a pinch of hot cayenne pepper makes them even more flavorful.
I still haven’t tried it yet, but when researching the net I found that they can freeze well. When cooking from frozen, allow them several more minutes of cooking time.
Serve Bisquick Sausage Balls with your favorite dipping sauce.
Don’t have Bisquick in your pantry? It is so easy to make it yourself:
- 3 cups Bisquick mix*
- 1 lb sausage ground
- 4 cups cheese grated
- 1/2 cup milk
- cayenne pepper optional
- chives optional
Mix all ingredients in a food processor or by hand. Form into walnut size balls and place them on a lightly oiled broiling pan or on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.
Bake in preheated 350 F (175 C) oven for 15-20 minutes or until done. Halfway through cooking move the balls with a spatula to prevent them from sticking.
Serve with mayonnaise and mustard dip or chili sauce.
