I love sausage balls and cheese!  These are great for any time of the year, but I always seem to make them around the holidays.  The secret ingredient for these is cheese whiz!

They are perfect for a potluck, Thanksgiving, and Christmas and to grab and go food for grazers.  You get two or three and then you have to go back for more.

Extra Cheesy Cheese Whiz Sausage Balls

If you say anything is cheesy, then it’s a winner in my house.  I made these a few years ago for a party and my kids ate half for a snack.  I had never thought of giving it to them for a snack or even breakfast, but it’s the perfect food.  It’s full of protein to keep them full longer.

I know your kids will love to help make these.  They are super easy to make.  My mouth is watering while I’m typing this and I just added the ingredients to my grocery list again!

Don’t forget to double the recipe and freeze half for later. So easy and you can be done and the kitchen cleaned in under an hour!

The good thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to have baking mix. I never seem to have any in the house so so special ingredients that you’ll never use again.
