  • 2 rimmed baking trays
  • Parchment paper
  • Rubber spatula
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Cookie scoop
  • Measuring cup


  • 1 pound ground spicy sausage
  • 1/2 pound cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives


  • Line two rimmed baking sheet trays with parchment paper. Set the trays aside.
  • Add the ground sausage and cream cheese to a large mixing bowl. Use your hands or a rubber spatula to mix the two ingredients together. Work the cream cheese into the meat so you see no chunks of cream cheese. The smoother, the better!

  • Add the Bisquick, cheese, and chives to the bowl and blend the ingredients together well.

  • Use your hands to scoop the mix into two tablespoon-sized balls (about 1 inch). Roll the meatballs with your hands then place them on the lined baking sheet tray.
  • Place the baking sheet trays in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill the meatballs. This helps prevent them from spreading as they bake.
  • Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
  • Bake the meatballs for 25 minutes. They will be browned around the edges and on the bottoms and feel firm when you squeeze them.
  • Enjoy the meatballs right away!


Use a spring-loaded cookie scoop to scoop the meatballs into perfectly sized-balls.
