Looking for an easy appetizer that comes together quickly and will keep you coming back for more? If so, look no futher!
These 5 ingredient sausage balls are perfect appetizer to pair with, breakfast, lunch, dinner, a tailgate, or as a standalone snack. All you need is ground pork breakfast sausage, all purpose baking mix, shredded cheese, herbs of your choice (I use chives), and garlic.
These can be mixed by hand but using a hand or stand mixer makes it a little easier.
Once combined I use a 1 tablespoon scoop to equally portion out all of the balls. Bake on a parchment lined sheet pan for easy clean up!
5 Ingredient Sausage Balls
1 pound of ground pork breakfast sausage
2 cups of all purpose baking mix
1 pound of sharp cheddar cheese (or cheese of your choice)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon of thinly sliced scallions
DirectionsPreheat oven to 350F and line 2 large sheet pans with parchment paper or lightly spray with nonstick spray. Add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix until well combined (this can also be mixed in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment). Once combined, scoop out the dough one tablespoon at a time and roll to form individual balls. Place the sausage balls one inch apart on the sheet pans and bake for 20 – 25 minutes (or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F). Let cool briefly and serve alone or with ranch dipping sauce.
Sausage balls can be frozen before cooking. To cook from frozen, place on sheet pan and cook for 25-30 minutes at 350F.
