  • 1 lb. ground pork breakfast sausage uncooked
  • 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
  • 1 lb. shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional: Dipping sauce (ranch, marinara, honey mustard, etc.)


  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, add the sausage and Bisquick. Mix with your hands until well combined and no dry flour remains. Add the cheese. Mix until well combined.
  • Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into your hands and roll into a ball.* Make 24 balls.
  • Place the balls on a baking sheet at least 1 inch apart. Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Transfer the balls to a paper towel lined dish. Blot away any excess grease with paper towels.
  • Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.



*To prevent sticking while rolling into balls, wet the palms of your hands with a little water or spray with cooking spray.
