Our favorite Sausage Cheese Balls recipe is delicious as party appetizers or for brunch entertaining. Make these for cocktail parties, brunch parties, or girls night in. The can be served warm or at room temperature, and can be made ahead. These are practically the perfect party food!
One of my favorite party foods is sausage cheese balls. They were very popular in the 70’s and 80’s, and I grew up eating them at holiday parties and bridal & baby showers.
The recipe I’m sharing today is a little different from the original one I grew up on. It’s one I found about 15 years ago and it’s been my go-to version ever since. There are a few more ingredients added which produces a more flavorful recipe.
Sausage cheese balls are a fantastic make-ahead appetizer for cocktail parties and brunch entertaining.
HOSTESS TIP: Make the sausage balls but slightly under cook them. Let them cool and then wrap them and freeze them until ready to use. Let them thaw slightly and reheat in the oven to serve.
This party recipe can be made ahead for time-saving prep the day of the event. Just mix and roll the sausage cheese balls, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Cook them just before the party and serve them at room temperature or warm from the oven.
The early preparation makes these ideal for brunch entertaining and pot luck parties. These always find their way onto our ladies night food table.
