Ready in 30 minutes! Chile cream cheese sausage balls are an update on the traditional southern appetizer made with Bisquick. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, these little bites disappear fast! Freeze well, too!
Line the bottom of an air fryer with aluminum foil for easier cleanup.
Place the cream cheese sausage balls on the rack. Don't crowd.
Air fry for 6 minutes at 375F until the interior temperature is 165F.
Expert Tip: These mix up easier if everything is at room temperature.
If you mix the ingredients in the order given it's a lot easier.
Lining the baking sheet with parchment will keep the sausage balls from sticking.
Sometimes they stick a little so about halfway through the baking time it's good to turn them over or jiggle them a little bit - but hey... if you forget, no worries.
Let them sit on paper towels for a couple of minutes when they come out of the oven. This will get rid of any extra grease.
IF you want to make a ton of them ahead of time? Just form them and put them right next to each other on a baking sheet. Slide the baking sheet in the freezer and flash freeze them. Once they're frozen put them in a freezer bag to use as needed. When you want to serve them just put them on the greased cookie sheet right from the freezer and bake them for 25 minutes or until they're heated all the way though.
