This is so easy to make. And delicious. It brought back memories from when my mom made them for Christmas every year. Family loves them. They will be a favorite throughout the year.

These are delicious! But careful of the cheese. It can make a mess on the pan.

used italian sausage,added garlic and onion powder plus cayanne...lil dry but overall tasty and satisfying,not to mention very quick and easy.
These were pretty good! I’m a super picky eater who’s trying a new way of cooking, both for health and just to try new things, and I had reservations about the almond flour (because in my 32 years of life I’ve never had it to my knowledge) and figured it would make the balls taste...nutty. Hush. I made it with the coconut oil, which came in the solid form, and changed up my cheese to the Mexican for my turkey balls, but kept cheddar for the sausage. And I cooked mine instead of 20 minutes to actually 30 minutes. I wanted them a little crispier. Didn’t quite get as crispy as I wanted, but I didn’t want to overlook them either. I’ll make them a little smaller and make more instead of the suggested number Came out pretty on point! Will save for another time!

Mine turned out more like sausage blobs, but they are still delicious!
These are awesome and easy to make. I will definitely make them again.

What is the serving size? My kids love them said they were the best sausage balls ever and we used turkey sausage instead of pork.

Cook them in my air fryer. O M G !
These are awesome! I’m taking them to a potluck today and I doubt there will be any leftover!

Really good, and hold together better than I expected, but are a lot more sausage-y than I anticipated. I think I'm going to try the coconut flour version to see if they're even closer to the tasty treats we always make at Christmas.

A very good and handy recipe. To try it again I would try adding more cheese and less almond meal. It's a little overpowering and a bit salty. All in all, on the go it's not bad.
