Rotel Sausage Balls Recipe

RO*TEL Sausage Balls - great football food! Freeze and cook later. We always have a batch in the freezer for a quick snack.

The countdown is on!  4 weeks until SEC football kicks off!  It is like Christmas here in the South.  I like a good college football game, as any good Southern girl does, but I love a good tailgate.  I think the tailgate is (almost) as important as the game.  I am always on the look out for a good recipe for our tailgate.

Every Friday from now until the end of the season I plan on sharing one of my favorite tailgate recipes.  I will post some tried and true recipes and a few new recipes that I discovered in the off-season.  This is a twist on sausage balls.  I substituted Ro*tel for the milk in our Whiz Sausage Balls.  We really liked it.  It adds a little kick without being too spicy, so everyone should be able to enjoy them.

RO*TEL Sausage Balls
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 3 cups Bisquick
  • 8 oz Cheese Whiz
  • 1 can RO*TEL diced tomatoes with green chilies

Pulse RO*TEL in food processor until the tomatoes are broken up into smaller chunks; 10-15 pules.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine sausage, Bisquick, Cheese Whiz and RO*TEL.  Mix until thoroughly combined.  Shape into 1-inch balls.  (May be frozen at this point).

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.

Pin It!

  1. Nice twist on an old favorite - you wouldn't be one of those Bama fans would you? Nothing like a good old West Virginia boy to whip a team into shape. Saban is from Monongah and I'm from Fairmont - about 5 miles apart.

  2. Nice change to the recipe Steph. Enjoy your football season. If you get a chance, hop over to my blog as I am having another great giveaway. Have a great weekend.

  3. Yea for the start of SEC football...and yea for your favorite tailgate recipes! I'm definitely trying these!

  4. Steph, we don't football, but our XMAS Eve tradition is snacks.

    Sausage balls are one of my husband favorites and he always requests them. I don't like them cause they are too bland.

    I think this recipe is the ticket and I'm sure he will like them too!

  5. You're a big Tide fan right? (ha ha ha ha)

    Looks great, Steph.

  6. Not a football fan here, but I can always use recipe for a quick and easy snack food! Sounds great!

  8. Perfect for an appetizer at any family gathering. Thank you!
