Sausage balls have been around for a long time as a yummy appetizer for parties, tailgating and such.
They really are great if the mixture of ingredients and cooking time is just right.
However, sometimes they can be a little dry if you aren’t careful and usually are really best when first out of the oven.
This recipe adds an ingredient that makes these sausage balls a little more tender and moist!
Cream Cheese! Cream cheese does good things to most recipes and it isn’t any less impressive in these cream cheesy sausage balls.
Another added touch is the Parmesan cheese along with the traditional cheddar cheese.
Try them and I think you will decide they are much better.
Here is what you will need:
1 lb. roll of breakfast sausage, hot or mild
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cup baking mix (like Bisquik)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Dash of garlic powder
1/4 tsp. Cajun seasoning (optional)
Dash of Tabasco sauce (optional)
Mix the uncooked sausage and cream cheese.
Mix in all of the other ingredients until well blended.
Roll into 1″ balls about the size of a small walnut.
Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
Remember… Don’t overcook!
Remove and serve.
