Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the sausage, Cheddar, baking mix, garlic powder and salt and knead with your hands until a homogenous dough forms (this will take about 5 minutes). Pinch off golf ball-size pieces of dough, roll them into balls and arrange them 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.

Bake until the sausage balls are golden brown and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature. Store any leftover sausage balls in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
