Delicious and easy recipe to take to brunches! I browned the sausage first and drained it it makes them much less greasy if you want to cut down on fat. They are just as good or better that way! Read More

Don't use the pork and bacon sausage for this. It is all I had on hand and maybe that is why we didn't care for these. I'm not sure that I would like any other sausage either since we didn't care for the greasey feeling either. Read More

I followed another reviewers advice and pre-cooked the sausage and drained it on a paper towels to cut down on the fat. I used Krusteaz pancake mix since that's what I had on hand and Dubliner Cheese. It's a great sharp white cheddar. Since I precooked the sausage I added one egg to help the balls hold together better...and I couldn't resist adding a Tbsp of real maple syrup. They also required less cooking time...about 10 min. These were a big hit with the family! I served them on the side of some home-made roasted tomato soup. It was the perfect snowy night meal! Read More

This was really good. I used about 1 1/3 pounds regular sausage with 2 Tbsp. real maple syrup. I will be making these again! My kids couldn't eat them fast enough. Note: These are so much better with a butter-based biscuit mix! Read More

These are really yummy. I put foil on my baking sheet and sprayed it with cooking spray. When I mixed this up (as it is VERY crumbly) I used my hands (just like mixing meatloaf) and it worked really well. BIG HIT! Read More

These are the best sausage balls I have ever tasted! The maple in the sausage is definitely the key ingredient. It does take a little work in getting it all mixed up but it is well worth the elbow grease. I have made these 4 times since the new year. Thanks so much Katherine for sharing such an enjoyable and simple recipe! Read More

Excellent! Everyone loved them even the ones I over cooked. I made a few changes from the reviews I read prior to making them. I used only 1 cup of Pioneer fat-free pancake mix a roll of Jimmy Dean 50% less fat sausage 3/4 cup of Kraft fat-free shredded cheese and a 1/3 cup chopped onions. I mixed them in my kitchen aide and they mixed well and easy. I've made them 3 times since Christmas Eve. Boy are they good and healthy this way Read More

These were good but I thought the baking mix made them a little dry and overwhelmed the sausage a little in taste. I think next time I will cut the mix back to 1-1/2 cups. Be prepared to use a little "elbow" getting this all mixed up. I made about 72 balls and baked them on a cooling rack sprayed with a little oil over top of a cookie sheet with foil. All the grease dripped down and it made the clean up a snap. Read More

I have used this recipe close to 10 times since I found it at Thanksgiving. The slight sweetness from the maple sausage is wonderful with a sharp cheddar cheese. My four year old whom eats like bird absolutely loves them!! Easy to make...I highly recommend them! Read More

Don't have kids so am not sure about them but this is a favorite when we want to settle in and watch a movie. It replaces supper and is wonderful as a snack and is filling. For those who don't care about the shape substituting Velveeta (or similar cheese) melted in the microwave makes it easier to mix and gives a more "cheesy" flavor but the balls sink andn come out more like small cookies. Overall a major thumbs up! Read More
