Tips and Notes

  • What kind of sausage to use: I like to use an herb seasoned pork breakfast sausage, but you can use a maple, spicy, or regular pork sausage just as long as it’s ground.
  • Use sharp cheddar cheese. I prefer to use sharp cheddar for that nice pop of flavor! I also recommend shredding your own cheese from a large block instead of using pre-shredded cheese.
  • Bisquick Substitutions: The Biscuit baking mix helps hold the sausage balls together and adds a bit of substance, so you can’t leave it out. But, you can substitute it! I’ve had readers and family/friends recommend using Stove Top Stuffing Mix or Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix in place of the Bisquick! Yum!

FAQs

Can you make sausage balls ahead of time?

Yes you can definitely make these Bisquick Sausage Balls ahead of time. You have two options:
1) Prep the balls but don’t bake yet (recommended.) Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and cover tightly, or place in an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to three days. Bake as directed in the recipe.
2) Bake, cool, and refrigerate. You can then reheat your sausage balls in the microwave, or in the Air Fryer at 350 degrees for a few minutes.

Do sausage balls need to be refrigerated?

Yes, any leftover Bisquick Sausage Balls need to be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will remain fresh for up to 4 days.

Can you freeze sausage balls?

Sausage Balls are freezer-friendly! Make as directed and cool completely before storing in a freezer safe container or freezer ziploc bag. Freezer for up to 6 months. Allow the balls to thaw completely before reheating.

What can you dip sausage balls in?

We love eating sausage balls as is, but they would also taste delicious dipped in a little ranch dressing!
