I have to agree with the person below me. This is a great change from the traditional 3 ingredient recipe. I have used both Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage and mild Venison sausage both are wonderful. The added milk keeps the balls moist and not doughy. The herbs add the perfect amount of flavor missing from the 3 ingredient version and u can never have too much cheese in my house. If u enjoy this recipe another family favorite is the Bisquick Breakfast Casserole. Both recipes are tasty and simple. I hope your family enjoys these as much as my family does. Read More

I wasn't really a fan of these. I followed recipe exactly. I used bob Evans sausage. They were bland. Too bready. This recipe calls for twice the amount of bisquick and half the amount of sausage similar recipes call for! if I had to give a tip to anyone wanting to make these I'd say use 1/4 the bisquick in this recipe. I will not be making this one again. Read More

I omitted the rosemary and doubled the milk. It was very dry. They're great to prepare a day ahead of time and freeze beautifully. Read More

I've made these twice so far. Both times turned out great. I only used the sausage Bisquick and cheddar cheese and a little shorter cooking time so they wouldn't dry out. Wonderful! Read More

I LOVE these things! They have been a family tradition on Christmas morning since I was a little kid. This recipe is a little dry though:( Next time I will either add more milk or an egg. Read More

Great base recipe! I added more spices and extra sausage and everyone loved them. Super moist inside and crispy outside. Yummy! Oh and by adding the extra sausage I was able to half the dough and make an extra spicy batch. Read More
