Super Bacon Sausage Balls are so good! It is so easy to eat so many! Too easy actually! The flavors blend perfectly together! No matter which kind of sausage you use! If I am making these for breakfast or brunch I try and use breakfast sausage. Dipping these Super Bacon Sausage Balls in a sunny side up egg is so tasty! If I am making them as a snack for an evening event I use honey garlic or Italian sausage. You really can dip them in anything and everything your heart desires or nothing at all! You will know if they need anything at all as soon as you give one a try! These disappear at record speed every time we make them! They are perfect for any occasion or celebration! No matter how big or small!
Sometimes when I make these Super Bacon Sausage Balls I make them smaller than others! My total number generally is somewhere between 18 and 24. You will know when these balls are done when they are a beautiful golden brown. I also have to tell you your hands will get sticky making these yummy balls. Try and keep your hands wet to make the rolling process easier! After I roll out a few of the balls I rinse my hands in the sink with only water and keep on going! Works wonderfully, every time!

Super Bacon Sausage Balls
- 6-8 slices bacon, diced
- 6 small breakfast sausages, casings removed
- 1/3 cup onion, diced
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a skillet, over medium to medium high heat, cook bacon until crisp and onions until tender. Remove to drain on paper towel. Set aside.
Remove casings from sausages and dice meat.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Stir with a whisk until blended. Add butter and using a fork or your fingers mix until mixture resembles coarse meal, or a pile of crumbs. Add uncooked sausage, cooked bacon and onions, and cheddar and stir until blended. Add buttermilk and stir until combined.
Work with wet hands, roll dough into bite sides balls. Place on your prepared sheet, as evenly spaced as possible. Bake until a golden brown color, 20 to 26 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet halfway through baking if your oven has a hot spot! Transfer cooked sausage balls to a rack to cool if desired. Serve warm with dips such as ketchup, sweet and sour sauce, ranch dressing, a sunny side up egg or whatever your heart desires!
