Air Fryer Bisquick Sausage Balls

I am always looking for easy options when it comes to breakfast! Our Crockpot Cracker Barrel Hashbrown casserole and our Instant Pot Copycat Bacon Gruyere Egg bites are usually my go to, but my boys love meat! That is why these Air Fryer Bisquick Sausage Balls are such a great option. They are filling, full of flavor, and I can make them ahead of time! Not only that but they can be enjoyed throughout the entire day! These are perfect for breakfast, brunches, lunches, after-school snacks, and appetizers! 

Air Fryer Bisquick Sausage Balls

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage (I like using Mild Tennessee Sausage)
  • 2 cups Bisquick Pancake and Baking Mix
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (because the sausage is already pretty flavorful I did not add any other seasoning, but you can adapt the seasoning to your liking and depending on the sausage you use)
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 ½ cup mild Cheddar cheese, shredded. (You can use any cheese of your liking. Colby Jack was a great alternative as it has a less pronounced flavor than the Cheddar. I like shredding the cheese at home as it is fresher, and melts better, but you can use pre-shredded bags of your favorite cheese blend)

How to Make Air Fryer Bisquick Sausage Balls

  • Mix the breakfast sausage, Bisquick mix, garlic powder, milk, and Cheddar cheese in a large mixing bowl. 
  • Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper, and place balls in the air fryer leaving enough space in between so it can cook evenly. (For the Ninja Foodi 14-1 basket I place 7, and for the Cosori I place 9 balls per cook)
  • Cook in the air fryer on a manual setting. Ninja Foodi 14 in 1 temperature 360 for 8-10 minutes. Cosori Air Fryer temperature 370 for 8-9 minutes. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. 
  • Once they are cooked, carefully take them out of the Air Fryer basket and place them on a cooling rack.
