Grain Free Low Carb Easy Sausage Balls from Spinach TIger

I just can’t believe I haven’t made sausage balls here. These are not only the tastiest sausage balls, they are grain free, made with almond flour, country sausage, happy eggs, and a good cheddar cheese.

I made this super easy for you by sticking sausage patties in the oven (they are so easy to crumble later) and while they are baking, I shred my cheese and get out the rest of my ingredients.

Once the sausage has cooled a few minutes, just crumble it up into the mixture. Roll into balls. A full recipe makes 30 balls. A half recipe makes 15. But why not double it and make 60; you’ll probably need them or you can freeze the left-overs for a quick, low carb snack.

Pick Your Cheese for Your Easy Sausage Balls

I used a Vermont White Cheddar. It melted beautifully, and had a great taste. I added in a small amount of Pecorino Romano to add salty, complex flavor.

Pick Your Sausage

I used a spicy version of country sausage. You can use whatever you like, even chorizo or Italian.

Sausage Balls are not just for Parties

We like them for breakfast!

Serve on Sliced Apples

This is a genius idea. No toothpicks necessary. People can scoop their sausage balls with a thinly sliced apple and they taste great together.

Go Grain Free: Use Almond Flour

You can make your own like I did here. Or you can buy almond flour. This is a good brand.

    I seldom review Keto Recipes made with Almond Flour because they are just OK. This recipe is fantastic!! I also added a little worcestershire sauce to the recipe, which is how I make my regular sausage balls.

    These were awesome, and easy to make! I just wish the nutrition information was available for my food diary entry.
