Sausage Ball Bread (No Butter!)

Bisquick-free version of your favorite sausage ball! This soft, fluffy, and easy-to-pronounce sausage ball bread is a great alternative to Bisquick’s preservatives.

What is Sausage Ball Bread?

Sausage bread bread is simply an adaptation of the sausage ball recipe.

Because you don’t need to roll out individual sausage ball balls, making sausage bread bread is much easier. Instead, press the mixture in a rectangular baking dish and then cut it into bars.

Because it doesn’t contain Bisquick, sausage ball bread is a lighter version of traditional sausage balls recipes.

What is wrong with Bisquick

Bisquick and similar products are highly processed, preservative-laced baking mixes that have been filling kitchen cupboards for decades.

Bisquick can be used as a convenient and versatile baking mix for home-bakers, but it is not good for our health.

Let’s have a look at the ingredients:

  • Enriched flour – flours that have been heavily processed often contain traces of glyphosphate
  • Vegeteble oil– Seed oils made from GMO ingredients such as corn and soybean, which are high in omega-6 fat acids and directly linked with obesity, heart disease, and many other health issues
  • Thiamin mononitrate – Food additive made from synthetically isolated vitaminB1 byproduct of coal oil (petroleum). Often produced in China
  • Dextrose – A highly processed sweetener that has zero nutritional value and can cause insulin resistance. It is usually made from GMO corn.
  • Sodium Aluminium Phosphate is a food additive that has been linked to multiple diseases including chronic kidney disease.
  • DATEM– Food additive in baked goods, 100% artificial and processed, prohibited by all Whole Foods products
  • Monoglycerides– Hidden source of transfer because it is made with oil byproducts

After all this, do you still want Bisquick? We can do better!

This is a cleaner recipe for sausage balls that you can make from scratch and bake into bars.


  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups all-purpose organic flour
  • 3 tablespoons of aluminum-free baking powder
  • Optional: pinch of cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. Add the flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, and sausage to a food processor bowl. To break up the sausage, pulse a few times and then add the ingredients to the food processor.
  3. If you are using a block cheddar cheese, switch the blade for the shredding plates and shred your cheese into the bowl. Add pre-shredded cheese directly to the bowl.
  4. Continue to pulse the mixture until it is uniform and even.
  5. Transfer the sausage to a 9×13 or 8×12 baking dish. You don’t need to grease the dish as the sausage will render enough fat for it to stay put.
  6. Press the mixture into the dish with your hands.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes. The top should be lightly browned
  8. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before you cut.


Remaining food can be kept in the fridge for up to five days. You can freeze cooked sausage ball bread up to three months in an airtight container
