Keto Sausage Balls – Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free, THM S
I live in a suburban area of New Jersey about an hour outside of New York City. Like the typical suburbs of any large city, I have almost every store I could want within 20 minutes of my house, with many just 5-10 minutes away.
About 6 months ago they opened a brand new Whole Foods just 5 minutes away. Every Tuesday morning I have a babysitter so I can work on the blog (the majority of the time I’m squeezing work time in between nap schedules, school activities, and laundry). But on Tuesdays, I go sit with a cup of coffee and my laptop and get so much accomplished.
One of the other benefits of having a Whole Foods five minutes away is that we are eligible for free Prime Now grocery delivery on any order over $35. And Amazon keeps giving me $5 off codes for using no-rush shipping. So, when I have nothing in the house but really feel like working on recipes I can order what I need and have it delivered in two hours. It’s a miracle for this busy work from home food blogger mom.
I’ve been wanting to do sausage balls for a while and I had a friend coming for lunch this past Monday so I ordered my ingredients and whipped up these sausage balls to share with her. That grocery delivery is definitely a modern-day convenience that I do not take for granted.
The most popular recipes for sausage balls use Bisquick. Not a low carb ingredient at all. But it is easy to make sausage balls without Bisquick. To make my sausage balls low carb I use grated parmesan cheese and an egg to help absorb the liquid the sausage gives off when cooking.

And a little salt to season the meat. That’s all you need to make delicious keto sausage balls.
How to Make Keto Sausage Balls
Sausage balls are very easy to make because you make them with raw sausage. It saves the step of having to brown the sausage first.
One of my tips for making sausage balls or meatballs is to scoop them with a cookie scoop. If you don’t mind the bottom edge being flat you can just scoop and bake.
I serve these sausage balls with a no sugar added marinara sauce since they have a bit of an Italian flair. They would also be great in any recipe that calls for meatballs. I use a combination of sausage and ground turkey with shredded zucchini in my Meatball Casserole.
- 1 lb sausage (casings removed)
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 egg
- 1/2 onion finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 400. Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix together all the ingredients. Form into balls and place on the cookie sheet.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. They should reach 160 on a meat thermometer.
