Crisp on the outside and tender in middle, these sausage balls need only 3 ingredients!


  • 2 cups biscuit mix
  • 6 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 lb ground pork sausage


  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon grainy dijon mustard or regular dijon
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Combine all dip ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate.
  • Preheat oven to 350˚F
  • Combine biscuit mix, cheese and ground sausage in a bowl. Mix thoroughly until mixture is moist and holds together.
  • Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, form into balls. 
  • Place onto baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.


If you don't have biscuit mix, combine 2 cups flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/3 cup shortening. Pulse mixture in a food processor until shortening is incorporated.
