Cheesy Keto Sausage Balls Recipe

Low Carb Keto Sausage Balls

Sausage balls are a classic appetizer, but they’re usually made with carb-heavy ingredients like bread crumbs or Bisquick. This keto-friendly version swaps those ingredients for almond flour and grated cheese, making them perfect for those following a low-carb or ketogenic diet.


  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground pork sausage, shredded cheddar cheese, almond flour, eggs, baking powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. Using a cookie scoop or your hands, form the mixture into 1-2 inch balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake the sausage balls for 20-25 minutes or until they’re golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Serve the sausage balls hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
