I've made these for years and it's way better if you use real shredded cheddar cheese use a full cup. This makes it all stick together better you do have to work at it a bit.. Also best when served with a dipping sauce made up of part sour cream and part dijon mustard. Great appetizer. Read More

Guess maybe I just don't like sausage very much. Way too much sausage flavor for us. There is another recipe called Hanky Panks which I think is much better. It uses half ground beef and half sausage along with cheese and spread it on party rye slices. Read More

This is a great recipe for Christmas morning. They can be prepared and frozen ahead of time so they are ready to pop in the oven on Christmas morning. I use 3 cups of Bisquick 1lb. sausage and 8 oz. of Cheese Whiz but everything else is the same. Quick and easy recipe that everyone will love. Read More

I got this recipe from a woman my mom works with. It looked super easy so I decided to make it for a Super Bowl Party I had. Everyone loved them and they were gone in a flash. Oh! I also made them in my dorm's kitchen! Read More

This realy didn't work as a main dish. Maybe a snack. It was more dough than meat. I'd definitely suggest using hot or mild sausage. Regular ground pork was too bland. Read More

I made this super fast and easy recipe for a New Year's Eve party. The only thing that I did not like about the balls was that they were a strange orange color from the process cheese. I served them with a marinara dipping sauce. I tasted one when they were right out of the oven. And that was the only one I ever got because they were eaten up a the party (which had quite a spread already) very quickly. Read More

This is pretty good but I find it a bit dry. I might have not did it right. I added more sausage and i think it was better because it was a little more moist. I will make these again. Thank you Read More

As written this did not work. The measurements of something must be wrong. I checked on the once balls at 10 minutes and they had completely disintegrated and melted into each other. There is too much grease with sausage. I ended up letting them cool drained off the grease re-shaped them into balls and baked them again. The same thing started happening all over again. By the time I finally got them to hold their ball shape they were completely overcooked. The hubs ate two I ate one and the rest went in the trash. Sorry but this did not work as written. Read More

I grew up on sausage balls made with cheese whiz. They are really good when made correctly. This recipe didn't work. It didn't bind well at all. I made another batch and used an 8 oz jar of cheese whiz/cheese spread and a splash of milk. Everything held together perfectly. They are not dry or crumbly. So much better than shredded cheese. I recommend 8 oz of cheese whiz for 1 lb sausage or a 16 oz jar for 2 lbs. Read More
