I don’t know about you, but with all the sweets and decadence surrounding the holidays, I sometimes find myself craving the savory goodies. One of my all-time favorites (from waaaaay back in the day) is sausage-cheese balls. (Drool)
I honestly thought these little bites of heaven couldn’t get any better, until I found this recipe from Plain Chicken – that adds cream cheese! Completely swoon-worthy, I assure you.
And if you’re a non-pork eater, you can definitely use turkey sausage… just kick up the seasonings a little to make the bites *pop*.
Cream Cheese Sausage Cheese Balls
- 1 lb hot sausage, uncooked
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/4 cups Bisquick
- 4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 400F.
Mix all ingredients until well combined. (I use my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook attachment.) Roll into 1-inch balls. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until brown.
Sausage balls may be frozen uncooked. If baking frozen, add a few minutes to the baking time.
