Spicy Sausage Balls


I love sausage balls.  I've been making them for years. I think it's been at least 15-20 years.  These are one of many favorite appetizers served  for our Thanksgiving Eve gathering every year.

This recipe is a modification of the Jimmy Dean Sausage Cheese Ball Recipe.
Spicy Sausage Balls


  • Preheat oven 375 degrees. 
  • Combine all ingredients I usually do the sausage and picante sauce first. I use my hands as this makes a lot so you need a big bowl.  Then, add the bisquick - about halfway through mixing it, I had the cheese.   
  • Spray non stick cooking spray on a baking sheet. 
  • Form into 1" balls. They don't really spread but will stick together if they are too close.
  • Bake about 25-30 minutes.  Because of the sauce, they take a little more time to cook.
Note: If you want to control the heat, use 2 lbs of regular pork sausage and a mild picante sauce.
