3 Ingredient Bisquick Sausage Balls
Ok so we are kinda’ obsessed with making all the things with this, way beyond fluffy Bisquick biscuits. Yes it is known for making pancakes too but other than those two you not have used this yellow box. We will open your eyes to all sorts of new things to make after this one.
This is a savory option of course but we have made desserts too like our Bisquick blackberry cobbler with this same dry mix! I will show you how to make it too if you find that you have run out or would rather make it homemade. 😉
Sausage Balls Without Bisquick Recipe
You can make homemade Bisquick if you’d rather. There aren’t many ingredients to it but one is perishable so you couldn’t make the whole thing in large batches. You could prepare the others, bag them and just add the butter later if you like to prep a lot beforehand.
To make baking mix yourself at home you just mix together;
- One cup of flour
- 1.5 tsp of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon of chilled softened butter
Then you can make all the things with it. From easy biscuits to sweets in the morning. If you want a savory choice though, this sausage breakfast casserole Bisquick style is great.
Once you had that ready you would continue on with the other ground sausage balls items. Beyond that you just need shredded cheese and ground sausage of your choice. I highly suggest 1/2 regular and 1/2 a roll of spicy. I do list a 4th which is milk, I highly suggest you add that too so they’re fluffy.
There are a few questions you might have in mind or may have encountered if you used another sausage balls recipe online. Ours is certainly the best of course and I have answers for you that will get it right for you this go around. 😉
If you do not add 1/2 cup of milk into our mix they will be more dense than if you did. It is easy to make them fluffy this way. 2% or whole milk (or milk product) is best to add a bit of fat into the mix.
Uncooked! Follow our directions below. When you sit them on the baking sheet, instead of baking them in the oven instead put the sheet into the freezer. Once they are hard, throw them into a freezer bag and they will stay for up to 4 months this way. Thaw and bake as directed below.
Sausage Balls Jimmy Dean
You can use any brand you like. Store brand ground pork sausage and cheese works fine too. I do prefer Jimmy Dean if I can find it though. Their spicy version is amazing for this. Breakfast sausage and/or turkey sausage can be used too for lower fat but won’t stick together quite as well.
As far as cheese goes, sharp cheddar is best. Shredding your own is better than bagged too, it doesn’t have that slightly waxy coating on each piece.
Gluten Free Sausage Balls
You can used gluten free Bisquick with this box you can buy for that. Of course you will have to read the package of sausage you buy as far as that is concerned, each brand is different. For a dairy free option I have found Daya brand for my husband that he likes quite well and melts decently.
- Start with preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.
- Use hands, mix well and form the meat into balls (about 2-3 Tbsp each).
- Place pcs. on a large baking sheet. (for an easier cleanup, line sheet with parchment paper)
- Bake for approximately 23-25 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
Air Fryer Sausage Balls
If you would rather air fry these I do recommend it!! They will get super crispy this way and it is the best way to reheat your leftovers too. Once they are done you’ll want to preheat machine to 380 F, lay a small piece of parchment in the basket and place the balls in with a bit of space in between.
Cook for 10-12 minutes or until middle reaches 160 degrees and outsides are crispy golden brown.
How do you know when sausage balls are done
Since you’re using raw pork you will need to ensure that the thickest part reaches a safe 160 F internal meat temperature. Quick and easy sausage and cheese balls right??
Enjoy as is or with your favorite dip for sausage balls. Super simple ingredients that everyone enjoys as a brunch item or at breakfast. Just takes about 30 minutes to make and they save for a few days too. If you do have leftovers wait until they are at room temperature before bagging them up.
Store in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheat in the air fryer for best results, or microwave for about 45 seconds. Looking for other easy recipes with pork you can make (especially if you found it on sale and bought it in bulk) are;
- You can use some of it to make our Instant Pot sausage soup.
- Or make some pressure cooker sausage gravy to pour over biscuits you can make with this mix too.
