I know it’s been a while but all the craziness from the holidays plus my kids activities I have not been in the kitchen much. These little sausage balls are good anytime of year but this is something I have always made on busy mornings so I had to share them with you. I usually mix them up the night the before and place them in the fridge in a covered dish. When all the chaos is happening I pop these in the oven and I am super Mom. My family typically have these on holidays such as Christmas or Easter so they are for special occasions in their mind. I will never reveal how simple these are, it is my secret.
This recipe has morphed over the years from the basic recipe found on most boxes to what it is today. I have added a little bit of all my favorite flavors and now I have a perfect sausage ball. My youngest son is super picky and hardly eats anything , this is one of his favorite things. These are seriously good straight out of the oven or room temperature. I usually double the recipe and everytime my boys walk by the kitchen they snatch one . I have even brought these to potlucks and eat them as a appetizer.
These are easy to make with really basic ingredients.
In a bowl place all the ingredients except the milk and mix well. Don’t be scared to use your hands
Add milk and mix it all well
Using a cookie scoop or spoon scoop out desired amount and roll into balls
Place on a prepared cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. I used foil for easy clean up
Bake for 15-17 minutes

Definitely trying these today. Seasoned totally different than the way i normally do mine. Is the soy sauce strong tasting ?
They are a bit different .. the soy sauce just adds a bit of savoriness . Not over power at all.
Can i freeze these after i make them into balls uncooked?????
I have never froze them before but I’m sure you could , but if you cook them while frozen you would have to adjust the cooking time . I have made them the night before and put them fridge only.
I have frozen sausage balls. Just don’t bake them first. Put on a lined baking sheet in single layer; making sure they aren’t touching and place on freezer shelf till frozen. Once they are frozen solid, package them up and put instructions in with; oven temperature and baking time.
When ready to prepare take out night before, remove from freezer bag and place your sausage balls on baking sheet and place in fridge and ready to bake, bake as instructions say.
Anything like this I will freeze first Before baking them.
Thanks for the tip Colleen.
What can I use instead of Bisquick as I can’t get it here in Ireland.
Hi Valerie, If you good homemade bisquick you find a recipe make your own. It’s usually a mixture of flour, baking powder , salt and butter or shortening.
Could almond flower be used
Hi Sandy I could not recommend almond flour for this recipe. I have another great meatball recipe without flour in it, check out my https://bakedbroiledandbasted.com/low-carb-meatballs-and-creamy-spinach/
I wish the recipes would state how many it serves
Hi Pat .. I usually get around 15-20 from this recipe when I use a 1 1/2 TBS scoop. It really just depending on the size scoop that is used when making the balls. I hope this helps.
