Great recipe! I can't keep my husband away from them. Couple of tips I found useful...mix the ingredients in a food processor! I have never had a problem with dryness and I think it is because the processor does a much better job mixing the ingredients and getting moisture into the bisquick that I could. Also, they normally take 20 - 25 minutes to cook. Thanks for the great recipe!

This is the recipe I have used for years to make sausage balls. I have always thought they were too dry though. My mother also made them this year only using a recipe that called for only 3/4 cup of baking mix. Hers were much better. You could actually taste something besides the mix. I would say make them with only half the mix and they turn out moister and with more flavor.

I've been using this recpie for years except I add about 1/4-1/2 cup of milk (I'm never very exact when baking hehe) After I take them out of the oven I put them in a covered container with a towel in the bottom. It absorbs the extra grease from the meat and cheese and they stay warm if you're taking them to a gathering. They also stay moist like that. Mine are always a big hit and my Mother makes them the same way and hers always go fast too!

VERY IMPORTANT: COOK/BROWN THE SAUSAGE FIRST IN THE SKILLET!! Then, while the sausage is still warm (and drained if desired), mix with Bisquick and cheese in bowl. Balls form easily and cook in oven for 15 minutes.

I like this recipe the best of all I have tried. These are just right,not too dry. I sometimes use hot sausage and sharp cheese for a stronger flavor. One hint...I "warm" my sausage just a bit, 30 seconds, in the microwave. This makes it a bit easier to start mixing.

These were delicious. I took them to a Christmas party and everyone loved them. I doubled he cheese and added 1 tsp garlic powder. They turned out very moist and tasted good even the next day.

This was simple to make, however the ingredients are all fairly dry so be prepared to mush them together with your hands. Also, to give it a bit more flavor, I use Sharp cheddar cheese.

These are great. I've been cooking these for several years. I use an 8oz. jar of Cheese Whiz instead of shredded cheese.
