These turned out great! Made them for an office party so I doubled the recipe which made about 40, but I cut the amount of almond flour in half (just seemed like way too much) and they were great. 20 minutes or a little longer was better to give the cheese time to get crispy, but might have taken longer since I had two sheet pans in oven at once. Used parchment paper on pans for easy clean up. Will definitely make these again!

these sausage balls were wonderful. I will make these again soon! As previously mentioned if you make them a bit smaller the recipe will make more than 25.

good. smaller ball size is better and stick with finely shredded sharp cheddar. we had larger/farmhouse shredded cheese and it didnt bind as well. used hot sausage for more flavor. i look forward to making it again!

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.

Hello, Beverly! 4 May 2018
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!

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.

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.
