The great thing about sausages is that you can add them to a salad or to a main course dish. You can enjoy them between slices of bread, or serve them as appetizers at a casual get together. In fact, some save the leftover grease to flavor other dishes that have no pork in them!

Ground sausage is even more versatile; it can be included in many more preparations. Sausage balls are one of the favorite snacks of people as they are a perfect blend of sausages and cheese. Sausage ball appetizers can be eaten or served at any time of the day, and you can whip them up within no time.

Sausage Cheese Balls

Ingredients
  • ⅛ tbsp. pepper
  • 1 lb ground sausage
  • 4 cups sharp cheddar (grated)
  • 3 cups baking mix
For the Dip
  • 1 tbsp. mustard
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
Directions

Before you begin, preheat the oven to 375 °F. Grease a baking sheet with butter or a squirt of vegetable oil cooking spray. Mix the sausage, cheese, and baking mix together in a large bowl. It is recommended that you use your fingers to work the mixture. Next, coat your palms with a little oil, and roll portions of the mixture between them to form 1'' balls. The mixture will be crumbly, so try squeezing it. If you need a binding agent, add a little egg white to the mixture. Place the balls on the baking sheet, with space between them, and bake for 18-20 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Halfway through cooking, turn them to prevent sticking. Stir the mayo and mustard together to make the dip. Serve it with the balls.

Sausage Milk Balls

Ingredients
  • 3 cups baking mix
  • 1½ tsp. fresh parsley (chopped) or ½ tsp. parsley flakes
  • 1 lb bulk pork sausage
  • ½ tsp. dried rosemary leaves (crushed)
  • 4 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Coat a jelly roll pan with cooking spray. Combine the sausage, parsley, rosemary leaves, milk, baking mix, and both the cheeses in a bowl. Coat your palms with a little oil, and roll portions of the mixture between them to form 1'' balls. Place them in the pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and serve the balls with barbecue or chili sauce.

Sausage Balls with Flour

Ingredients
  • ½ lb sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 lb hot ground sausage
  • 2¾ c. self-rising flour
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying it with cooking spray. Combine the cheese, ground sausage, and flour together in a bowl and roll the mixture into small balls. Place them on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Serve hot with a sauce of your choice.

You can add a dash of chili sauce if you like it spicy, or some finely chopped onions and tomatoes to make them more filling. Another great quality of sausage balls is that they store well, and thus are perfect to take along for potlucks or picnics.
