Easy recipe for bisquick cream cheese sausage balls – you probably have most of the ingredients on hand! They're cheesy, savory, & delicious.

Doesn't every family have one of those tried-and-true holiday recipes? Today, I thought I'd share my favorite.

On holidays, I love to have a super easy, make-ahead recipe for breakfast. Nobody wants to be working in the kitchen on a holiday like Easter or Christmas, when you're supposed to be enjoying time with your family. So, the night before a big holiday, I prep a make-ahead recipe that I can pop in the oven for everyone in the family.

My absolute go-to recipe for this is Bisquick Cream Cheese Sausage Balls. These are incredibly easy to prep ahead of time for a delicious, crowd-pleasing holiday breakfast. I make these so often that my kids have started expecting them on Easter and Christmas. One Christmas, the sausage I purchased was out of date and I didn't notice it until Christmas Eve night. My daughter was devastated when we didn't have sausage balls the next morning. 😂
