These are the BEST Sausage Balls!

Sausage balls are a classic tailgating treat. It doesn’t matter what time the game is, sausage balls are always welcomed at the tailgate!  We’ve tried lots of different recipes over the years and finally found our “go-to” recipe.

These are by far the best sausage balls we’ve ever made.  What makes these sausage balls so good?  Well, the secret ingredient is cream cheese.  The cream cheese keeps the sausage balls very moist and tender.   We used hot sausage to give the sausage balls a little kick, but regular sausage would work well too.   Bring these to your next tailgate party – you won’t be sorry!

  1. Should these be stored in the refrigerator after cooling since they have cream cheese in them – or would an air-tight container on the counter work?

    Thanks!

  2. Never thought of using the dough hook to mix these. Up until now I have been doing them in two batches in my food processor. Just done a batch with the dough hook and it was SO much easier. Thank You!

  3. I shop at Target or Walmart and usually get johnsonville sausage of some sort…never heard of Tennessee Pride sausage. I live in DFW area of Texas if that helps any since I have never heard of or seen that brand you mentioned.

  4. cometcat1 – I cook the sausage balls on my stoneware bar pan. Try cooking them in a 9×13 glass pan – that might help.

  5. I tried a few of these and they burned on the bottom…tried more with a lower temp. and with less cooking time…still burned. Any tips, anyone? (also tried turning them over halfway through…didn't help)

  6. I made these last week and they are AWESOME!! The cream cheese definitely adds to it, best sausage balls I have ever had! 🙂

  7. Patty – they aren't really hot. They don't burn your mouth or make you sweat. I think it would depend on what brand of sausage you buy as to how hot it is.
