We recently had a house full of little boys for breakfast after a sleepover, and no one wanted muffins – dang! My go to breakfast recipes when my daughter has friends over. But boys like meat! Hearty breakfast meals!

Because I wasn’t in the mood to spend an hour in the kitchen preparing multiple dishes, I stumbled upon a recipe in a cookbook I have called Waking Up Down South; a cookbook I bought from a plantation near our North Carolina home.

In less than 30 minutes, I had breakfast made and the boys devoured the Bisquick sausage balls in a matter of minutes!

Let’s Make These Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Balls Together!

Usually I would just a tube of Jimmy Dean Original sausage, however, my store was out so I had to make do with the sausage patties – totally fine! Just mash them up!

Add flour

Add shredded cheese

Mix to combine with fork

Hand roll to shape 1-2″ balls

Place on a tin foil lined baking sheet {the tin foil isn’t necessary…it just makes for easier clean up!}

Bake at 350˚ for 15 minutes and serve!

These 3 ingredient cheesy sausage balls are delicious and great for breakfast…but can also be made for dinnertime appetizers!


Substitute Jimmy Dean sausage for any pork sausage of your liking. For more spice and flavor, add a hot pork sausage!
