Last Updated on February 23, 2022
These are the BEST keto sausage balls – full of flavor, crispy on the outside, and moist on the inside! They are the perfect low carb, gluten-free appetizer or snack. Only one net carb each!
These are seriously the best keto sausage balls on the internet! I love a good sausage ball – tasty, not bland, crispy on the outside, and moist and fluffy on the inside. These low carb sausage balls check all those boxes. No gritty, dense balls of disappointment here!
Cream cheese helps keep the almond flour moist, and eggs hold everything together Plenty of spices and some tabasco sauce keep things interesting and flavorful. I serve this with plain old ranch dressing, some coconut avocado drizzle, or creamy chipotle sauce. Because I like my sausage balls spicy, I keep the dip pretty chill.
This recipe makes about 56 one-inch sausage balls, which come out to about one net carb each. Score! Use a cookie scoop to get uniform-sized balls so they all get done at the same time. This mix is also a bit stickier than traditional Bisquick sausage ball dough, so the cookie scoop works better than using your hands.
I use pre-cut non-bleached parchment paper squares to keep them from sticking. if you use foil or a baking sheet with no parchment paper, be SURE to grease it really well. I tried them with greased aluminum foil, and they still stuck.
