Recipe: Paleo Sausage Mushroom Balls...

First, Jenn (aka The Wife), is awesome. She's a fellow military spouse, has an adorable kiddo, and whips up some awesome recipes. A while back, she shared a recipe for Sausage Mushroom Bites, and they were delicious!!  Check out the original recipe here and check out the rest of her blog while you're at it!

However... her sausage bites are designed to sit in little phylo dough cups. Not so wheat-free or paleo. So, I took the lead from her recipe and came up with this little gem...  can't lie, when I popped the first one in my mouth, I actually said, "Oh holy shit." I know, pardon my potty mouth.  I served these to a friend during the Super Bowl and she agreed they were awesome.

Remember, we are dairy consuming Paleo-ites.. I always recommend Cabot cheese... which are naturally gluten and lactose free! This can easily be made without the cheese.

 Not the best picture, but they taste better than they look!

Sausage Mushroom Balls

1 pound (package) ground sausage
1/4 Cup almond flour
4 oz. white mushrooms, finely diced
1 Cup shredded sharp cheddar
(You could also use 1/4 Cup finely chopped spinach, or sub it for the cheddar)

Preheat oven to 375.

Place all ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well. (Go ahead, get those hands dirty!). Scoop out portions and roll into balls roughly 1 inch in diameter and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Bake for 18 minutes or until done.

Makes roughly 30 balls.


  1. I'm definitely going to give your version a whirl!

  2. They don’t really look delish, but your recipe is really so tasty. I saw this post a couple of weeks ago and served this to my in-laws when they visited here yesterday. They loved how I made the sausages and it’s their instant favorite. I shared your blog to my mother-in-law and she told me that she’ll be making more sausages in the next days. :)

    1. They really are not very pretty, but I'm so glad you liked them! It's always good when you can impress the in-laws!
