Gluten Free Sausage Balls Recipe

By: Mary Frances Pickett      Date: December 16, 2011      Prep Time: 30 Min      Cook Time: 15 Min

One of my absolute favorite recipes to make with my grandmother was Sausage Balls. I loved to grate the cheese with her Mouli grater, and then mix, and mix, and mix the dough to get all of the flour worked it. A few sausage ball sculpture appeared along the way too.

I finally got around to de-glutening this recipe a few weeks ago and made them for my family for the first time. The gluten free sausage balls were a hit with everyone. If you’ve never had sausage balls (I’m not sure how widespread this recipe is outside of the Deep South), you must try them. Heaven in your mouth!


1. Let the cheese come to room temperature and then grate it using a Mouli grater, or the small holes on a handheld grater.
2. Mix the grated cheese and the sausage together with your hands until it is very well combined.
3. Mix the flour and baking powder together, and then gradually work all of the flour into the sausage and cheese mixture. Use your hands again.
4. Form the dough into small balls – approximately golf ball size. Place them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees (pre-heated oven) for 25 minutes.
