Apple Sausage Balls

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

You know those classic sausage-cheese-bisquick balls? We love those things around here! Whenever I make a finger-food dinner for us to eat while watching a movie or playing some games together as a family, those are always on the menu. And they are a standard for an appetizer when we have company over too.

As great as they are though, I decided I wanted to play around with the basic recipe a bit and see if I could create something new. My goal was to make them without bisquick (or without having to make a homemade bisquick alternative) and to give them a great autumn flavor. Knowing how well apples and sausage go together, I decided to start from there.

I was so pleased with the final result. These Apple Sausage Balls definitely have that fall-ish flavor I was after. They’d be great for holiday entertaining, either served with a brunch or as an appetizer. I’m thinking I’ll make up a batch to take to my parents’ house when we go for Thanksgiving.

Apple Sausage Balls

  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 lb. bulk pork sausage (original or maple flavored)
  • 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced
  • 1/8 t. allspice

1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the pork sausage, cheese, maple syrup, apple and allspice.

2. Using your hands, combine everything together until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Roll into evenly sized balls, about the size of a golf ball.

3. Place sausage balls on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until fully cooked.

These are great to make ahead, which makes them even more perfect for entertaining in my opinion. The sausage mixture can be mixed together and formed into balls up to a day ahead. They can also be frozen either before being baked or after. Perfect!

    I made these for my MOPS group this morning and I won our food contest! I adapted a little…doubled for a large group, ended up using 3 small Granny Smiths. I couldn’t taste enough maple in my first batch, so I took a pastry brush and dabbed more syrup on top. For the next two pans, I waited until there was about 5 minutes left to bake and brushed the tops with syrup and put it back in the oven. They had a nice sweet crispness on top. Thanks for the recipe!

  6. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be actually something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

    say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
