"These sausage balls are made with Neese's® Sausage. Perfect for breakfast and great for the holidays. I have provided the doubled recipe. You can cut it in half if you wish. I usually bag half the recipe and put into fridge and freeze the other half. Great in toaster oven."

I make this recipe at least once a holiday season. Not only is it good as an appetizer, my family likes to have them for breakfast. When I make this, I like to use my own homemade baking mix and a mixture of sharp cheddar and pepperjack cheeses. They always get inhaled in this house!
To be fair, I will preface my review and say that I did not use the specific brand of sausage which apparently affected the outcome dramatically. I used Owen's. The proportions of this recipe created little hard dry balls with almost no meat. I cooked about a dozen as a test run, knowing something looked wrong, and they were OK hot, but as soon as they cooled, they were stones. So, to the remainder of my mix, I added a 3rd pound of sausage and they turned out great. If you look at other sausage ball recipes, you'll see the usual ratio of bisquick to sausage is 2:1, not 3:1.
Always enjoy these when family is in town. Used this recipe more as a guide, using 2c mix, 12 oz sausage and 8oz cheese and added half cup milk.
As the recipe was written, I wasn't sure if I was supposed to cook the sausage first like most other recipes. I cooked the sausage first and then mixed the ingredients but the "dough" wasn't sticking together. So, I added 4 eggs to the mix and that made it stick. They expanded and in the end, not in a ball shape, more like a biscuit. My husband thought they turned out similar to the biscuit at Red Lobster.
So easy, and delicious. My family ate the whole batch when I turned my back.
I too made this recipe and found it difficult getting ingredients to stick together. Seemed like it was too much biscuit mix so I added 2 eggs and a little milk (1/2 cup) to moisten it.
Seemed like it needed a little more sausage in the recipe as it was a bit bready.
These are really easy and tasty. I halved the recipe, used a little less cheese and added a little more sausage to get the right moisture level. These would be good with cantaloupe, strawberries, and honey dew melons for a fantastic brunch.
I like to add 1/2 cup milk, and some extra cheese.. but I use 1/2 sharp cheddar and 1/2 pepper jack cheese. I also like to add 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese as well.... And I cook these at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
