These Sausage Balls make a great appetizer or addition to a pasta dish. We love making them up and eating them with pancakes and scrambled eggs for breakfast. How will you enjoy them?

Sausage Balls Recipe

These aren’t just great for an appetizer, they are fantastic for a breakfast side item or just as a pop in your mouth snack.

My teenagers are kinda crazy about these and they love them. I won’t even pretend there is a single healthy feature to these wonderful little sausage balls, but I will tell you they are SO gooood!

What can I do with sausage balls?

Serve them on a pretty platter on top of fresh lettuce for a party. Add a toothpick or cocktail fork for easy eating.

Serve with breakfast, next to scrambled eggs, pancakes, waffles or french toast. 

They make a great after school snack. We serve with vegetable sticks or fresh fruit.

How many sausage balls does this recipe make?

A lot. It’s honestly going to depend on how big or how small you make the sausage balls. 

If you’re making large sausage balls, you’ll only get about 8-10. 

If you aim for medium you can get up to 15-20.

And if you aim for a decent small size (average size) meatballs for pasta or appetizers, you can get up to 20-30. 

They will go fast!

Can I freeze these sausage balls?

If you are just using them for breakfast, you can freeze the leftovers and microwave them for 2 minutes or so when you’re ready to eat them.

We also make up a double batch and flash freeze them on a cookie sheet until frozen.

Then we put them in a plastic zip top bag and store for future meals. You can microwave them or heat them in a sauce on the stove to thaw or simply thaw in the refrigerator.

Yum! I won’t lie, we make tons of them up ahead of time and freeze them.

The kids grab 1 or 2 in the morning with their breakfast and they love them.

Another trick, I use herbs and sometimes minced garlic and minced onion in them. Especially when serving for an appetizer just to make them a little different and more flavorful.

I also tend to roll them into smaller balls for an appetizer and put a toothpick in them for serving. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
