📌 Keto Sausage Balls Recipe 👩‍🍳⁣


I made the most DELICIOUS sausage balls this week and they’re VERY low carb. You probably have all the ingredients to whip these up and enjoy them today! Or you could easily grab them – it’s a very simple recipe.

You know me… I’m all about EASY keto recipes. 😉

The dip I used is OMG Caramelized Onion Dip (1 carb per 2 tbsp serving) but they’re great without dip. Or you can use your favorite: french onion, spinach dip, ranch, artichoke dip, etc.

📌 Keto Friendly Low Carb Sausage Balls Recipe 👩‍🍳⁣

🔹️ INGREDIENTS⁣ (makes: 28)

* 1 pound raw pork sausage⁣
* 8oz bag shredded cheddar cheese⁣
* 1/2 cup almond flour⁣
* 1 tsp baking powder (not sure it was necessary)⁣
* 4oz cream cheese ⁣
* 2 large eggs⁣

Keto Sausage Balls Recipe Ingredients


I used Philadelphia 5 Simple Ingredients cream cheese (1 carb for 2oz, lowest carb). I did count the 1 carb per ounce of shredded cheese, the carbs in the sausage (per my label), and 0.6 carbs per egg (1.2 for two eggs), so this is an accurate carb count based on MY brands/labels.

I used a 2 TBSP measuring spoon to dip out evenly portioned amounts and roll them into balls, and made 28 sausage balls with this recipe.

You’ll want to go by your own labels/brands of course, as well as the size/number of sausage balls you make.

I whisked the two eggs and set that aside and left the cream cheese and sausage out on the counter for a bit so it was easier to work with.⁣

Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper⁣. Preferably parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Combine all the ingredients in one big bowl and knead it together with your hands until it’s all evenly mixed.⁣

Making Keto Friendly Sausage Balls

Use a 2 tbsp (1/8 cup) measuring spoon to dip out the mixture and roll them into 28 evenly sized sausage balls.

Place on lined baking sheet.⁣

Bake 30-35 minutes or until crisp on the bottom and golden brown on the top.

Easy Keto Sausage Balls

Let cool completely to peel off the foil (they will seem stuck at first), so you have the yummy crunchy cheese bottoms intact. Or better yet:

Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat instead of foil.⁣ 😉

They came out absolutely delicious, with a “cheese crisp” bottom! 😍

Keto Savory Snacks

They weren’t dry or “bready” like traditional sausage balls.

They were PERFECT!

You could leave out the almond meal altogether, add more if you DO like them more bready, use pork rinds instead if you have a nut allergy – lots of options!

After they cooled completely, I ate what I wanted and sealed the rest in a covered dish and stored them in the refrigerator.

You could also freeze them of course, but I knew I would eat all of these for easy meals. 😉

Keto Meal Prep Recipes

These are great for a quick bite to hold you over, or as a meal. I ate them with the caramelized onion dip twice, and the rest I just ate plain.

Of course they’re great for parties or get togethers too, and even non-keto people will love them!

You can do lots of variations: add diced onion, jalapeno, use pimento cheese instead of shredded cheddar, etc. Or even use another ground meat instead such as ground chicken, ground beef, ground turkey, etc.

Enjoy! 💕⁣

    These look so good! I’ll have to make them and try the air fryer instead of baking. I have got into using it instead of my oven, quicker and easier.

    Hi Lynn,

    These look delicious, but I was wondering if you had any suggestions to substitute for the almond flour? I am sensitive to nuts and don’t really want to up the carb count by adding white flour.
