Low Carb Sausage Cheese Balls

A perfect appetizer, but we eat them for breakfast.  We make a lot and put some in the refrigerator and some in the freezer.  They freeze well.  Just pop them in the microwave or toaster oven to reheat!

  • 1 pound Sausage mild
  • 1 pound Sausage hot
  • 3 cups Sharp Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 2 tbsp Dried Onion minced
  • 4 tsp Baking Powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  I like using my hands with food-safe gloves on.  

  3. Form 2 inch meatballs and place on baking sheets with sides (the grease from the sausage and cheese will accumulate on the sheet.  The sides need to contain it.)  It should make about 36 large or  you can make 48 smaller meatballs.

  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until browned.

  5. Remove meatballs while warm to a paper towel lined baking sheet to soak up some of the grease from the meatballs.

  6. Serve and enjoy.  Or... refrigerate or freeze for future use.

Recipe Notes

  • Onion is optional, but adds to flavor.
  • I like to use the low sodium, nitrite free sausage or turkey sausage when I can find it.  That will affect the nutritional values.
  • These are the most like those made with Bisquick that I have found.
  • The meatballs will not expand and so you can have tight spacing on your baking sheets.
  • You can put these on a wire rack on the baking sheet to let the grease run through.  I am mixed on this as the meatballs tend to cook around the wires and then are embedded.  I've ruined meatballs pulling them off the racks before.  I had to run spatulas on the back side of the rack to get the meatballs to release.
