I was so happy these sausage balls turned out so good! My husband really prefers to eat low-carb so around the holidays, I was thinking of the classic Sausage Balls and wondering if there was any substitute for the typical Bisquick.
After some googling, I heard about some attempts with Almond Meal and I decided to give it a try!
These are great and I we don't miss the Bisquick at all! I guess, depending on the sausage, these could be considered Gluten-Free, too?
Low-Carb Sausage Balls
1 lb Jimmy Dean sausage (I used regular but I think hot would be great!)
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 375. Spray a sheet pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well with hands.
Form sausage balls to preferred size and place on cookie sheet.
These were about a tablespoon full each.
Bake until fully cooked~ about 8-10 minutes.
When my mom used to make sausage balls, I remember dipping them in a mustard/mayonnaise dipping sauce:)
