Firecracker Cheddar Bay Sausage Balls Recipe @pinch

Anna's family is right... These sausage balls are amazing. Cheesy and slightly buttery, they have the best flavor. Once baked, they are browned outside and soft and fluffy inside. There's a little kick, but not overly spicy. If you are sensitive to spice, we recommend omitting pepper flakes and using a regular breakfast sausage. Enjoy these cheddar sausage balls for breakfast, brunch, or as a party appetizer. I came up with this recipe on Thanksgiving morning for breakfast. All of them were eaten in less than 30 minutes. My family said these were the absolute best sausage balls I had ever made. They are moist, not dry at all, cheesy, buttery, and a little spicy. Just delicious! I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine.
