Cream Cheese Sausage Balls ~ Make every body's party-favorite Sausage Balls extra tender and extra delicious by adding in a touch of cream cheese!

Cream Cheese Sausage Balls

I know we've all probably had the ever-classic Sausage Balls ~ sausage, cheese, and baking mix rolled into delicious bite-sized baked-up bites ... what's not to love?

I know I certainly can't resist popping these little bites in my mouth whenever and wherever they're served.

But then, well, truth be told, sometimes our party-favorite Sausage Balls can  be just a wee bit on the dry side.  And sometimes they can  be just a tad bit tough.  But guess what?

I've got two 'secrets' for you to help bake up a moister, more tender Sausage Ball!

That's right ... two simple things can help your delicious Sausage Balls be even better.

1.  Instead of Sausage Balls ... make Cream Cheese  Sausage Balls.  Simply mixing in a block of softened cream cheese does wonders for Sausage Balls' moistness-and-tenderness factor.  And ...

2.  Grate your own cheddar cheese from a block of cheese instead of buying pre-shredded in the package.  Grate-your-own cheese gets more melty than pre-shredded ... again, adding to the moist-and-tender factor.

And that's it! ~ Two very simple ways to make every body's party-favorite Sausage Balls even better.  Serve up a platter, stand back, and watch them disappear in a flash.

Cream Cheese Sausage Balls
(Printable recipe)
  • 1 lb. hot sausage
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3 c. Bisquick baking mix
  • 1 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese {grated from the block by hand, not packaged pre-shredded}
  1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until well combined.
  2. Form into small balls, about 1-inch in size. Place on a foil-lined baking pan lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees until cooked through and browned, about 20 minutes.
Makes about 60-65 sausage balls.

- Cream Cheese Sausage Balls may be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen.  When ready to serve, thaw {if frozen} and reheat in a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes.
- For extra kick, add about 2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeno.
- For mild Cream Cheese Sausage Balls, use mild sausage instead of hot.
