Everyone has had sausage balls at least once but have you ever had four cheese deer sausage balls? They are my absolute favorite deer sausage recipe.

Have you noticed that I say every recipe is my favorite? They’re all good and it’s very difficult to pick a favorite, so they are ALL my favorite. Hi, my name is Amanda and I’m a deer meataholic, and here’s my Four Cheese Deer Sausage Balls recipe. Enjoy!

Four Cheese Deer Sausage Balls

Prep Time: 8 MinutesYield: 24 Sausage Balls
Cook Time: 17 MinutesServing Size: 4 Sausage Balls
Total Time: 25 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 793

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of raw ground country/breakfast deer sausage
  • 8 oz of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. of parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of Bisquick or make your own baking mix (see recipe below)
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of onion powder
  • 1 tsp of Colgin liquid smoke

Instructions:

  1. First, let the cream cheese sit out at room temperature until it softens. Then place the ground deer sausage in a large bowl and break it up into smaller pieces.
  2. Then break tiny pieces of cream cheese into the bowl. I usually do this with a butter knife.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Then add all of the other ingredients into the bowl and mix it very well.
  4. Make the deer sausage balls about 1 inch and place them in a large casserole dish. You should have about 24.
  5. Put the Four Cheese Deer Sausage Balls in the oven and bake them for 10 minutes. Then get them out of the oven and turn each sausage ball with a tong and place the dish back in the oven for about 7 minutes.

Deer meat gets done much quicker than beef, so please don’t overcook them. Not to toot my own horn, but these turned out perfect!

Can you see why I am a deer meataholic? They go great with just about anything, but I like fresh veggies of any kind with mine.

To make this recipe more diet-friendly…

  • This recipe should really be a cheat day recipe. It is very difficult to make this more diet friendly. We have high calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium, but let’s try this anyway.
  • If at all possible, use very little fat and pork sausage in your venison sausage. This will help lower basically everything that’s bad.
  • Use low-fat cheeses, and even though it would break my heart, you could omit a cheese or two. This would cut out a lot of fat.
  • Whatever changes you make to your Four Cheese Deer Sausage Balls, you can recalculate the nutrition facts at myfitnesspal.com

If you would like to make your own Bisquick baking mix here’s the recipe. This is for a whole batch, but you’ll only need to use 1 cup for the Four Cheese Deer Sausage Balls.
