Learn how to make sausage balls without bisquick with my simple recipe using self rising flour and cream cheese. These sausage balls from scratch are so easy and delicious!




  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line 1-2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large glass mixing bowl, combine ground sausage, softened cream cheese, milk, onion powder, garlic powder, and Worchestershire sauce. Use a fork and mix together until evenly combined.
  • Next, add in self-rising flour 1/2 cup at a time until combined. I typically start out using a fork, but find it’s easier to use your hands.
  • Lastly, add in shredded cheddar cheese and mix with your hands until evenly incorporated.
  • Next, begin forming 1 1/2 tablespoon size balls with your hands and place evenly spaced apart on your parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 18-24 minutes or until sausage balls are a light golden brown. Enjoy!

  • How to store: Leftover sausage balls should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • To reheat leftovers: For best results, I recommend baking in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes. Alternatively, you can microwave individual servings for 30 seconds at a time until warm, but make sure you don’t over heat it as it will make them tough/dry.
How to Freeze Baked Sausage Balls (my preferred method)
  • Prep, roll, and bake sausage balls as directed. Cool completely and transfer to a freezer safe bag or container, adding parchment paper or wax paper in between layers to prevent sticking. Freeze for up to 3 months.
  • Once ready to eat, thaw the sausage balls over-night in the fridge and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5-8 minutes, or until fully warm.
How to Freeze Unbaked Sausage Balls
  • Prep and roll sausage balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and flash-freeze for 1 hour, before transferring to a freezer safe bag or freezer safe container. Freeze for up to 3 months.
  • Once ready to bake, remove from the freezer while your oven preheats and bake as directed. *Note that frozen sausage balls may need a few extra minutes to bake.
