Sausage Balls Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Use your stand mixer! That’s the trick to fast mixing. I thought if you can shred chicken in the stand mixer certainly this should make sausage balls a breeze. It does!
I disliked having to hand mix them so much that I rarely made sausage balls. It took forever to make the ingredients combine enough to form a ball. The stand mixer whips them up in no time flat. It’s amazing! I will never make another sausage ball without my stand mixer…ever.
Shred your own sharp cheddar. Pre-shredded cheese is coated with cellulose to prevent it from caking. Which can also keep your sausage balls from forming and sticking together properly. That’s it, just a few simple tricks and you will make sausage balls more often.
Add the Bisquick baking mix, pork sausage, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on low speed until combined.
If you like them spicy use hot sausage instead of regular breakfast sausage.
The next tip is to use a cookie scoop. Forming the balls is much faster with this handy tool.
Scoop equal size portions, form into balls and place on the baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden browned. Allow the cooked sausage balls to cool just a few minutes and serve.
I hope these tips help. My husband is now grateful I figured this out, yours will be too.
