This Bisquick Sausage Ball recipe is incredibly simple to make and is always a hit at parties! Best of all, it has just four ingredients and can be served with any number of sauces or condiments for dipping. Read on for instructions on how to make them and for dipping sauce ideas!
Bisquick Sausage Balls are one of those recipes I assumed every person on the planet knew how to make. I guess because they’ve been around for so long and I’ve enjoyed them at so many football parties, it never occurred to me to post the simple recipe.
A friend cleared that up for me a few weeks ago when she commented that she’d love to make Bisquick Sausage Balls for the Super Bowl. I am happily obliging!
I’ve made several versions of sausage balls over the years, but I always come back to the cream cheese sausage balls. They have an overall better texture and the flavor is amazing!
HOW DO YOU MAKE SAUSAGE BALLS WITH BISQUICK?
These Bisquick Sausage Balls call for just four ingredients – sausage, cream cheese, Bisquick and cheese – yet they’re so flavorful and always great to please a crowd. Just mix it thoroughly, form into balls and bake! Be sure to line your sheet pan to make cleanup a breeze.
Once these are baked you can put them on a pretty serving platter and either put a toothpick in each sausage ball or keep a container on the tray or close by.
I always serve mine with plain yellow mustard but your favorite dipping sauce might work, too. Or just serve them on their own! Adding a small amount of parsley or other greens to the plate really helps make them pop.
HOT TIP: I almost always have a box of Bisquick around. On the rare occasion I’ve been out and didn’t have time to go to the store, I’ve made it from scratch. I’ve used this recipe with good success. Best of all, it has just four ingredients!
DIPPING SAUCES FOR BISQUICK SAUSAGE BALLS
I love sausage balls on their own, straight from the oven. But I’m also a sucker for a good dipping sauce. You can serve these with any number of sauces and condiments, but here are a few of my favorites:
- CREAMY MUSTARD SAUCE: Mix together yellow or dijon mustard with a small amount of heavy cream (you can also use mayo or sour cream). Add a few dashes of hot sauce if you like! I also like to use just plain yellow mustard. I’ve also seen recipes with apricot jam mixed in!
- BALSAMIC DIJON SAUCE: Balsamic vinegar and cream cheese sausage balls go surprising well together! Simply mix together 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp Dijon mustard, 2 tbsp mayonnaise and a pinch of sugar.
- READY-MADE CONDIMENTS: Ranch dressing and marinara sauce both taste delicious with cream cheese sausage balls. Pesto is also delicious, as well as just a good ol’ queso. Try putting several choices on the tray so there’s something for everyone!
I have a few of these family recipes around and I’ve decided I’m going to post more since the Super Bowl will be here in just a few days! My mom’s Clam Dip is coming (it originated with my grandmother); we never have a family gathering without it. SO good!
