Pimento Cheese Sausage Balls


Here’s my recipe for Pimento Cheese Sausage Balls.

It’s super easy and makes plenty for sharing.


  • 1 pound pork breakfast sausage (I like Jimmy Dean or Swaggerty’s)
  • 12 oz. Palmetto Cheese pimento cheese of choice (or blend of cheeses)
  • 2 + 1/4 cup Bisquick
  • Dash of paprika + red pepper

If you don’t eat pork, you can substitute turkey sausage. It works just as well! If you’re using turkey sausage, add 1-2 tbsp oil to make up for the fat. Also, the sausage is easier to work with if it’s not super cold.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Add sausage and pimento cheese to a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine.
  3. Add Bisquick and spices (if using). Knead with hands until it’s all combined into a large ball.
  4. Scoop and roll into 1-inch balls.
  5. Place balls on a baking sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray, or lined with a silicone baking mat. You can keep them closer together since they don’t spread.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until they’re golden brown on top.
  7. Store in air-tight container or zip-lock bag in the refrigerator for up to a week.
