Sausage Balls with Cream Cheese


I love sausage. And I love…er, sausage balls. This year, the trend on Pinterest seemed to be adding cream cheese to the typical sausage ball recipe. By typical recipe, I mean with three simple ingredients: sausage, Bisquick, and shredded cheese. I thought I would try to add cream cheese to my usual recipe this year for my Sunday School Christmas party.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 lb sausage (mild)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups Bisquick
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

( I doubled the recipe to make extra sausage balls)

Recipe Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350.  Plop the sausage into a mixing bowl, then gradually incorporate each ingredient.  I use my hands to mix, but if you have a mixer you could always use that.

Once ingredients are evenly mixed, roll into golf-sized balls and place on greased cookie sheets or parchment paper.

Place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.


The point of adding the cream cheese was to give the sausage balls more moisture and creaminess. However, Mrs. Herb and I both agree that my “usual” sausage balls (same recipe without cream cheese) is just as good, if not better. I give this recipe 4/5 herbs.

  1. I absolutely LOVE sausage balls? Any idea what I could use to replace the Bisquick. My husband won’t let me use it anymore because of trans fat.

    • Rachael, I spent quite a bit of time researching substitutes for Bisquick, but none of them look trans-fat free. I’ve never experimented with sausage balls that don’t use Bisquick, either! If I ever find a solution, I’ll let you know 🙂
