Jul 12, 2019It's been a while since I've made these and don't remember using eggs. However, I do remember that mine were not dry, my pet peeve of sausage cheese balls. My first batch was dry so I looked at another recipe and made the following tweeks: cooked them at 350° for 15 minutes. They may not be "golden brown" on top, but they're much moister inside.

Made these for a recent snack food potluck and they were very good! This is the first time I have ever added eggs to my sausage balls but I think it did make them a little moister. Be careful to watch them because I think the bottoms browned a little faster than the ones without eggs. I will make these again!

I made these ahead and froze them individually on a cookie sheet then placed in ziploc bags to bake later. These were the best sausage balls I've ever had. Not too dry, not too cakey, just right. I baked them from frozen state (Thanksgiving morning to take on a car trip to Savannah) and they were enjoyed throughout the trip! Glad I found the recipe again because I couldn't remember where I found it.

I have used this recipe since I was a little girl in the 70s. My girls now enjoy the treat, especially when they are made fresh.
