Sausage and Cheese Ball

I had a small gathering at home and was thinking of some snack recipes, which are not difficult to prepare, can be made beforehand and at the same time innovative too to get a wow from the guests. While browsing through my recipe collections, I came across this sausage ball one and got the idea instantly. Of course, I had to make some changes here and there according to ingredients availability, added some toasted ‘panch foron’ or Bengali five spice to get that extra punch along with the cheese, have mixed all the ingredients and kept it ready in advance, and just before the guests arrived, popped them into the oven. Yeyyy…’Garma garam’ snack is ready and I am free to talk to my guests too.


  • Chicken Sausage – 10 pieces
  • Flour – 1/2 cup
  • Kashmiri chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Panch Foron ( Bengali fivespice) – 2 tbsp
  • Black Pepper – 1 tbsp
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese – 100 gms
  • Baking Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Onion – 1, thinly sliced
  • Melted butter – 1 tbsp
  • Green Chilli – 2, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste

In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, pepper, chilli powder and baking powder. Roast the panch foron in a dry tawa and then add it to the bowl. Add the grated cheese and mix well. 
Finely chop the sausages and add to the bowl. Mix the chopped onion, green chilli and butter too. Mix well with a spatula.

Roll the mixture into small balls and keep refrigerated.

Pre-heat oven to 200 degree C. Place ball in a non-stick baking tray 1/2 inch apart and bake until the balls are golden and cooked through. I baked it for 20 minutes of so. 

Serve hot with sweet chilli sauce.
