Cheddar Sausage Balls

  • Author: Handy Chef
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings as an appetizer 1x


These are a no-fuss appetizer that can be put together in a matter of minutes. The result is a sausage ball that's crispy on the outside and tender inside, with lots of cheese laced throughout. If you don't enjoy pork, I would use an Italian ground turkey, just triple the amount of spices and add salt.




1 package sage Jimmy Dean sausage

1/3 cup flour

4 oz cheddar cheese, grated

¼ tsp pepper

½ tsp smoked paprika

½ tsp dried sage


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2.  Massage ingredients together.
  3.  Form into balls by rolling one piece at a time in between your hands.
  4.  Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
