  • 1 lb tube hot bulk breakfast sausage uncooked
  • 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups dry Bisquick baking mix


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  • Put the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, knead and work the ingredients until combined. This takes a while to mix (and a little elbow grease), then all of the sudden the dough comes together.
  • Roll dough into 1-½ inch balls and place on rimmed bake sheet.
  • Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Sausage balls should be golden and just cooked through.


Sausage balls are easy to overcook and will get dry if you do so, so don't be tempted to overcook them. If in doubt, use an instant-read thermometer and check for 155°F (68°C) internal temperature.
Mixing time can be sped up by starting with the sausage at room temperature.
When measuring Bisquick, measure it the same as you would flour. Meaning, measure it lightly and don't pack it.
