Best low carb sausage balls recipe?

I don't care for the carb quick ones and was wondering if they can be made with almond flour or pork rinds.

Anyone have a good recipe for one of my holiday favorites?

This is my tweaked version of the recipe you mentioned. I have made some modifications because I didn't prefer the whole recipe made with CarbQuik. Changing up the cheeses seemed to help with the dryiness too.

SAUSAGE CHEESE BALLS

2 rolls Owens or Jimmy Dean Sausage
1 cup Low Carb Baking Mix (prefer CarbQuik)
1 cup Almond Flour
2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese (grated)
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese (grated)
Small Amount of Water

In a bowl, combine all ingredients, except water, and knead to solid ball of dough, making sure everything is well incorporated. If the dough is too dry, incorporate a little water. The dough shouild feel slightly moist to the touch and should hold its shape well.

Form into small balls (approximately 1" in diameter) and place on cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until they are turning slightly brown. Let cool completely before removing from cookie sheet or they will tear.

Approximately .5 - 1 g of net carb per ball depending on the type of baking mix used.

Thanks. I'll try it. I have some Bob's Red Mill baking mix. It has a few more carbs than CarbQuik, but doesn't have that after taste.

I don't use any flour in my sausage meatballs. My recipe is.


Sausage meatballs

1 lb. jimmy Dean sausage
1 lb. hamburger
1 egg
2c. shredded cheese ( your choice)
2 T. onion
seasoning ( your choice)


Mix this all together. Shape into balls and bake at 350 for 20 mins.


I use these for a lot of things. Breakfast, swedish meatballs, dips and others.




And I make it out of all sausage and I make pizza balls too.

Van's Sausage Snax

This is a recipe my husband developed years ago, and until he became too ill to do it he always made sure there was a supply of them in the fridge for our "Snax Attax."

He passed away in October, and I haven't made them since. But I'm glad you mentioned sausage balls because that reminds me to put what I need for them on my shopping list. I've been off low-carb for well over a year because while he was ill he needed a high-carb, high-calorie diet to try to keep his weight on, and I was eating the same things I fixed for him. Now I've about cleaned out what was left of the high-carb things in the freezer and pantry, and I'm about ready to go back on a strict low-carb diet. My weight is up to over 160, and I sure need to do something about it!

Van's Sausage Snax
Makes about 36

1 pkg. (3 oz.) pork rinds, finely crushed
1 pkg. (14.4 oz. to 1 lb.) bulk sausage, flavor of your choice
2 tsp. dried minced onion
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-size bowl, combine pork rinds, sausage, onion, eggs and cheese, and mix with fingers until ingredients are well mixed. Form into about 36 small balls. Spray cookie sheet lightly with non-stick spray; arrange sausage balls on cookie sheet, and bake about 30 minutes until done. Serve hot or cold.

Recipe developed by Van Keilholz

These all sound good, thinking of them as an appetizer for upcoming wedding party at our house.

My sympathies to you Nadine.

Do you think I could freeze them before or after baking?

Thanks, Christyjo. It's very difficult losing someone who has been your best friend as well as your husband for 46 years.

The Sausage Snax can be frozen (preferably in a zero degree freezer) either before or after baking. In fact we usually kept a small bag or two of them frozen, already baked, for those times when we didn't have time to make them.
