Sausage balls are an entertaining standby for me, but they were always admittedly a little dry - until I tried adding cream cheese, and better balls were born. I'll never go back!

  • Blend sausage, baking mix, cream cheese, and Cheddar cheese together using the dough hook attachment of an electric stand mixer on very low speed until well combined, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a rimmed baking stone.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and no longer pink in the centers, 22 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I use a baking stone with short walls to prevent the grease from rolling off of the baking pan. Use the recommended baking time if using a baking stone. If using a metal pan, bake for 20 to 23 minutes.

You can use pork sausage that's hot, mild, or whatever your preference.
