Sausage Ball Puffs-perfect for parties, make ahead and freeze them for a quick, easy appetizer

Sausage Ball Puffs from

We got to spend spring break with my Aunt and Uncle this year.

You know the saying “you can’t pick your family….” well I got really lucky.

This is my mom’s younger sister and she’s always been the cool mom/aunt. She’s influenced me in ways she’ll never know (although I have told her about a few things.)

We had a wonderful visit and of course I have to share with you some of the food we had.

These sausage Balls are wonderful. And my Aunt had them in the freezer just waiting to be baked and served. They disappeared fast. I had to make some. I’ve now made these 4 times since our visit and every time, they disappear in 5 minutes. And I love that I can pull out just a few, for lunch and pop them in the toaster oven. So much better than a sandwich.

Sausage Ball Puffs ingredients

from Kitty Roberson

Sausage Ball Puffs


  • 4 1/2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 pound hot sausage
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4-1 cup water


  1. Work all ingredients together in a large bowl, adding just enough of the water to make dough moist but not soggy.
  2. Form into balls about the size of a small golf ball. I know there's only one size golf ball but work with me.
  3. Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.


If freezing-Place on a wax paper lined tray and place in freezer for about an hour. Transfer balls to freezer bag and place back in freezer until ready to bake. Increase baking time to 30 minutes if cooking frozen.

Sausage Ball Puffs-ready to bake

I made one bag with added chopped green onions and the onion just made the flavor burst. Next time I plan to add some pecans to the mixture because this is Georgia and we like to add pecans to everything.

  3. The sausage balls don’t last long around our house either or at a pot luck.
    In mine I also add; 1/2 cup finely diced onion, 1/2 cup finely diced celery and 1/2 t. garlic powder

    I cook these then freeze. I don’t add water either. Might have to try with the water. We use them for breakfast.

  21. Ican't Cook says:

    Okay, must give these a try. 3 questions..must they be frozen before cooking? If frozen, must they be thawed before cooking? Can you tell I’m new to cooking?

    • hehe, everyone has to start somewhere! No, you do not have to freeze these before cooking, they just freeze well if you want to. If you’ve frozen them, you do not have to thaw them before cooking, just increase the cooking time as noted.

  22. So you don’t cook the sausage before you make the mix right?

  23. These look so good!! This might be a dumb question but by hot sausage I am presuming you mean spicy not temperature…right? Thanks, the bacon cheddar beer bread was awesome..
