1 pound ground sausage (choose mild or spicy to suit your taste)
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk baking mix
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C) and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or lightly greasing it.
In a large bowl, mix the ground sausage, cheddar cheese, buttermilk baking mix, milk, and garlic powder until well combined. Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls.
Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and are fully cooked. To ensure they’re done, cut one in half to check that the center is no longer pink.
Once baked, arrange the sausage cheese balls on a serving platter and allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving. They’re best enjoyed warm.
Sausage cheese balls are the perfect choice for any event, combining irresistible flavors that are sure to be devoured quickly. Prepare some tasty sides, gather your friends and family, and indulge in the delightful experience of homemade sausage cheese balls!
