This time, we added it to our sausage balls! The result is a moist, flavorful sausage ball that is delicious served hot or at room temperature. People RAVE about this recipe!

Pork Sausage – Any brand will work and you should be able to find this easily at pretty much any grocery store. Use a roll of hot sausage if you’d like to spice these up!
Bisquick – We keep it simple with the boxed mix, but you could try your hand at making your own Bisquick. There are lots of recipes out there.
Pimento Cheese – We highly prefer our homemade pimento cheese over store bought, but you can use store bought if necessary. Just know that store bought tends to be less creamy and we always think it has a bit of a ‘fake cheese’ vibe to it.
What We Love About This Recipe:
- Just three simple ingredients!
- These sausage balls are perfect for serving up at a party or gathering. They are irresistible!
- These are delicious straight from the oven or at room temperature. You really can’t go wrong.
How to Make:
Mix: While your oven preheats you can start mixing together the sausage, Bisquick, and pimento cheese. Add all three to a large bowl and stir together until well combined.
We like our sausage balls to be a bit moist, so we use the least amount of Bisquick as possible. If the mixture is too wet to work with, add additional Bisquick, up to 1/2 cup, a little at a time until you’re able to roll into balls without the mixture sticking to your hands too much.
Scoop: I’d recommend using a medium cookie scoop if you have one, it’ll make the job a lot easier and you’ll have perfectly even portions. Scoop out the sausage mixture and roll it into balls.
My Favorite Cookie Scoop!
We use cookie scoops for everything from baking cookies to scooping meatballs to easily filling muffin tins.
Bake: Line a large rimmed baking sheet with some parchment paper and start arranging each of the sausage balls on the sheet about 1.5″ apart. When finished, place in the oven and bake for 14 to 16 minutes.
Once the sausage balls are cooked through you can remove them from the oven and serve them hot or at room temperature!
You can keep any leftovers stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 to 3 days.
You can prepare the sausage balls ahead of time and refrigerate for a few hours until ready to bake, or you can also freeze the uncooked sausage balls for up to a few months. You can bake them from frozen, just add a few minutes to the cook time.

These are cheesy and flavorful all on their own, no dip needed!
But, if you’re the type of person that can’t resist a good dip, you might like these with our homemade honey mustard, Carolina BBQ sauce, or some spicy brown mustard.
