Those Damn Sausage Balls

January 2014

I realize this is a perverse pleasure, and perhaps it shouldn’t be. But…. not long ago she posted a recipe for sausage balls on her page with a plea to her husband to please, please, please make these. Oh yes, these were the sausage balls my father-in-law was willing to come to her house for. I made them yesterday and my husband loves them. He ate them all day yesterday, and he’s been snacking on them tonight. As I said, maybe I shouldn’t take pleasure in that, but for some reason I do.

Editor’s Note:  I thought I might have a little fun with this.  Here are my newly christened Cousinfucking Sausage Balls, or 3-Cheese Sausage Balls… So good they make you wanna fuck your cousin.  Enjoy (they really are tasty)!


1 lb. roll of breakfast sausage, hot or mild

1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 cup baking mix (like Bisquick)

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

dash of garlic powder

1/4 tsp. Cajun seasoning (like Tony Cachere’s) optional

dash of Tabsasco sauce optional


1.  Mix uncooked sausage and cream cheese; then mix in all of the other ingredients until well blended.

2.  Roll into 1” balls about the size of a small walnut.

3.  Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray or use nonstick Reynolds Wrap.

4.  Place in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Don’t overcook!

5.  Remove and serve.  They taste best fresh out of the oven; however, as told above CF liked them even cold.  You choose.

P.S.  You can just call them 3-Cheese Sausage Balls if someone asks you for the recipe.
