  • 1 lb Ground Sausage
  • 10 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese grated
  • cups Bisquick
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil


  1. Allow the sausage and grated cheddar cheese to come to room temperature.

  2. Preheat the oven to 400℉ and cover a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil coated in cooking spray or oil.

  3. Using either a hand mixer or an electric stand mixer, mix the sausage and cheddar cheese together on low speed until just combined. Add the Bisquick and olive oil. This mixture will be slightly dry and crumbly.

  4. Press the dough, using your fingers, into 2-inch sized balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the balls are golden in color.
