  • 2 16 ounce rolls pork sausage such as Jimmy Dean
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose baking mix such as Bisquick
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional garnish: chopped parsley
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray.
  • Place the sausage, baking mix, cheese, onion, garlic powder, milk and black pepper in a bowl; stir until thoroughly combined. A stand mixers works great for this!
  • Roll the meat mixture into 1 inch balls and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned. Sprinkle with parsley if desired and serve.
