Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Sausage Balls

I first shared a version of this recipe back in 2014. I’ve since updated and improved the recipe, so I had to share it with you! This recipe combines two of my favorite foods – Cheddar Bay Biscuits and Cream Cheese Sausage Balls! These sausage balls are highly addictive! I could not stop eating them. I loved the garlic flavor. These are great for breakfast, snacks, and parties. Heck, I could make a meal out of these things. They are dangerously delicious!

How to Make Sausage Balls with Red Lobster Biscuit Mix

These sausage balls are super easy to make with only 4 ingredients. Simply combine uncooked sausage, cream cheese, biscuit mix, and cheese. Roll into balls and bake.

I’m going to give you my secret for making sausage balls, are you ready? Use your stand mixer with the dough hook. It mixes everything quickly and easily. It also keeps your hands clean!

  • If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can mix together the ingredients by hand.
  • I used a box of the Red Lobster Biscuit mix for the Cheddar Bay part of the sausage balls. You can find the biscuit mix in the baking aisle at the grocery store. 
  • I used a roll of Jimmy Dean hot sausage. You can use any brand of breakfast sausage or Italian sausage.
  • Do NOT cook the sausage. You are using the sausage raw.
  • If you want spicy sausage balls, add some red pepper flakes. I call this version Firecracker Cheddar Bay Sausage Balls.
  • I used sharp cheddar cheese in the sausage balls. Feel free to use any shredded cheese you prefer.
  • I use a small cookie scoop to portion out the dough.
  • You make the sausage mixture and shape it into balls ahead of time and refrigerate overnight.
  • You can make the sausage balls ahead of time and freeze unbaked for later. I always have a bag in the freezer for a quick snack. You can bake them frozen. Just add a couple of minutes to the cooking time so they can thaw in the oven. 
  • For gluten-free sausage balls, use a box of the gluten-free Red Lobster biscuit mix.

What to Dip Sausage Balls In

These sausage balls are dangerously delicious. They are my go-to party appetizer. These and Crack Dip, of course! I also love them on Christmas morning! We eat the balls plain. If you like to serve them with a dipping sauce, I suggest some Homemade Ranch Dressing, BBQ sauce, honey mustard, or warm pizza sauce.

Here are a few more of our favorite party foods that go great with these sausage balls:

  1. Do you just put the dry ingredients of the biscuit with the others or do you mix up the ingredients first of the biscuit?

  2. Love your original sausage balls recipe with cream cheese added!! I was planning to make them for a get together this weekend, but then I saw this recipe and switched my game plan! However, I wasn't sure if I should add cream cheese to this recipe (because it's an awesome addition to the other recipe)? Thanks for sharing this recipe! 🙂

    1. you can, but you would need to make sure you have the same amount of Bisquick in total. You would need to add an additional 3/4 of a cup of garlic bisquick mix in addition to the package.

  3. You absolutely just SHOT to the top of my favorite people list with that dough hook tip. Why have I never thought of that?! I l-o-v-e sausage balls but I despise mixing them. I will be trying this immediately, like tomorrow.
