It only takes 4 ingredients to make these delicious Cream Cheese Sausage Balls! They make a simple and easy dinner or appetizer. Pair these sausage balls with bbq sauce or another tangy or spicy dipping sauce.
Preheat oven to 375°F, and line a baking sheet with tin foil.
In a large bowl, mix together the sausage, panko, cream cheese, and egg.
Mix ingredients until completely combined; you may need to use your hands for this.
Form 20 equally shaped sausage balls from the mixture (they will be roughly the size of golf balls), and place onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake sausage balls in preheated oven for 18–20 minutes or until fully cooked through.
Serve Cream Cheese Sausage Balls warm.
I served these sausage balls with a garnish of chopped parsley, but this is optional—just for looks, not for taste.
This recipe is meant to be as simple as possible, so there are no extra seasonings in the recipe other than what comes with the sausage. For this reason, it is best to choose a high quality sausage that you enjoy the taste of.
The texture of these sausage balls is very smooth and creamy.
These sausage balls would be great served as an appetizer using sticks, as shown in the photos, but also in a sandwich or as a meal with some veggies on the side!
