Sausage Balls Lightened Up!

I can’t believe Monday is already here…where did the weekend go?! Since it is Monday, that means it is time for a new recipe! YAY!

So today I decided to lighten up on of my favorite snacks/appetizer….sausage balls! I love these things. My mom used to make them growing up when we would have youth group parties, birthdays, and holiday get togethers so of course I still cook them. I am sure I could and would eat an entire bowl of these so that’ s why I decided to “lighten” them up. These are fantastic and I hope you enjoy!

p.s. I personally do not like a lot of Bisquick in mine, so I only use 1 1/2 cups.

Sausage Balls

1 lb of Jennie-O Breakfast Ground Turkey

1 cup of shredded 2% milk mild cheddar cheese (I used Kraft)

1 cup of shredded fat free cheddar cheese (I used Kraft)

1 1/2 cups of heart healthy Bisquick

Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Microwave the mixture until the cheese is melted. Mix well. After mixing, roll out the sausage balls and placed them on a greased pan. Cook for 15 minutes at 350.


I rolled out 35 sausage balls which made each one only 57 calories. The original recipe made with regular sausage, regular cheddar cheese, and regular bisquick comes out to be 75 calories per sausage ball. 🙂
