Firecracker Cheddar Bay Sausage Balls

The holidays just screams sausage ball time lol, I love to make these Firecracker sausage balls for my family and friends 

Sausage balls are a standard, savory appetizer perfect for so many different occasions. Giving them a little lift using cheddar bay biscuit mix takes them over the top.

And will make them the quick & easy star of any party or gathering they’re served at

These cheesy, delicious sausage balls are perfect for either of those situations.

To make these sausage balls, start by adding your Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix and sausage to a large bowl. Use your hands to mix them together until it’s evenly mixed.


1 box red lobster cheddar bay biscuit mix

1 lb hot sausage (mild, any flavor will work)

1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese

3/4 c buttermilk (cold)

1/4 tsp red chili flakes

4 Tbsp butter melted


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix dry biscuit mix with a packet of seasoning that comes with the mix.

red chili flakes, and shredded cheese with a wire whisk.

Using your hands, break up the pound of sausage into the mix, then add buttermilk. Incorporate all ingredients together, and again, I do this with my hands so as not to over mix.

Drop 1 inch balls onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly brown, remove from oven and brush on melted butter.

Return to oven for 3-5 minutes more, or until golden brown. Enjoy the best sausage balls you will ever bake!
