Sausage Balls are one of our favorite snacks. I always have a bag in the freezer for a quick snack. I had some frozen hash browns in the freezer and was thinking of ways to use them up. I wondered how they would taste in my favorite sausage ball recipe. Only one way to find out!

I whipped up a batch of sausage balls and mixed the hash browns. I waited patiently for them to bake up. I took one bite and had my answer. They are awesome! These would be great for parties or Christmas morning! Just scramble up some eggs for a super quick Christmas morning breakfast.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb hot sausage, uncooked
  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • cups Bisquick
  • cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ (30 to 32-oz) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes (about 4 cups)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Mix all ingredients until well combined. (I use my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook attachment)
  • Roll into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place on rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake for 18 – 22 minutes, or until brown.

Notes:

Sausage balls may be frozen uncooked. If baking frozen, add a few minutes to the baking time.

  1. If I cook these with precooked turkey sausage (we don't eat pork), would it change anything? Just thinking there will be less grease and will they still hold together? Think cooking time would change? Excited to make these today! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. They wouldn’t be the same at all with precooked meat. There isn’t anything to bind the balls together. You could try uncooked turkey sausage in place of the pork sausage.

    1. I usually freeze them and then bake them from frozen, but I don't see why it would work the other way around. I think it would be fine to bake and then freeze.

  2. Thanks for the recipe,this looks like a great snack…….Just one question – What is Bisquick? I've never seen it here in Australia, so don't know what to use as an alternative. Thanks.

    2. CMB8489 – I've never fried sausage balls, so I don't know how that would work or what any cooking time would be.
