Sausage Cheddar Balls


This is a simple recipe that makes a wonderful snack for any gathering, but especially around the Holidays.  You can prep the mix ahead if you want, and, as they taste great at room temp, it’s fine to cook early to help free up some oven space!



1 lb Sage Sausage

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, or your favorite cheese

3 cups self-rising flour

1/4 cup milk, as needed

3 tsp  Grillin Shake, or 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp granulated garlic

1 tsp rubbed sage

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a bowl, add all ingredients except milk.  With your hands, combine ingredients.  Pour in 1/2 the milk and mix.  If the mixture holds together, you can use it at this point.  If it seems “flaky” then use the rest of the milk (Gloves are good for this part.).

Wet your hands or gloves, then roll into approximately 1″ balls.  Re-wet hands as needed to avoid sticking and to help smooth the surface of the balls.  Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and cook for 18-20 minutes, or until cooked all the way through.  Allow to cool, then serve.
