Maple Sausage Balls

I wanted to make a sausage ball that tasted a little like a Sausage McGriddle.  You know…savory but with just a little bit of sweet.

Um, YUM!

Since fall means maple inspired recipes, I thought this would be the perfect little bite for your next breakfast or even as an appetizer.  I’ve already made it twice this month (once for my Sunday school class and another time for my kids).  They were gone in a flash!



Maple Sausage Balls

  • Author: Mix and Match Mama
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 24 golf ball-sized sausage balls 1x


Savory little bites with just a hint of sweetness.  They’re perfect for breakfast or appetizers especially in Fall.



  • 1 pound of breakfast sausage (I used Owen’s), uncooked
  • 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1¼ cups Bisquick mix
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (use a really good one)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with foil and then spray it with cooking spray (for easy clean up).  Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of your ingredients with a hand mixer.  Don’t over-beat, just lightly blend.  Roll out the mixture into golf ball sized balls and place them on your prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake about 20 to 25 minutes or until browned.
  5. Remove and serve immediately or at room temperature.


I really try and always buy a great maple syrup because you really can taste the difference.  These sausage balls freeze beautifully too.  If I’m going to freeze them, I bake them first and then allow them to come to room temperature before storing them in a freezer bag.  When I’m ready to enjoy one, I just pop it out and heat it in the microwave.

The next time you make breakfast for your family, add the maple to your sausage balls instead of pancakes!

    I use my hands for sausage balls. The warmth of your hands helps to bind them. I’ll add syrup next time, I know it will be delicious!

    What syrup brand do you use? Also, I’m planning to make your enchiladas. When you put your chicken in the crockpot, what do you add to it? Butter? How long do you leave your chicken in the crockpot?

      Just add the chicken and enough water to cover. Cook all day on low or on high like 3-4 hours. That’s it! You’ll remove it with two forks and it shreds right up.

    Could you use regular pancake mix in place of Bisquick if that is what is on hand?
