Ingredients

  • 16 oz bulk sausage meat
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 8 oz refrigerated crescent roll dough 1 tube
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 3 Parchment rounds

Instructions

  • Place sausage and cheese in a large bowl.
  • Unroll crescent dough. Dust one side with 1 tablespoon on the flour; flip and dish the other side with the remaining flour. Cut into small squares--about 1/4-inch. Add these to the sausage mixture and incorporate into the mixture. It will be sticky but try to mix as thoroughly as possible.
  • Line air fryer basket with a parchment round. Form mixture into balls about 1-inch/2.5-cm in diameter. Place 1/3 of the balls into the fryer.
  • Fry at 390 F/198 C for 6 minutes. Turn balls with tongs and fry an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Repeat 3 times, using a fresh parchment round each time.

Notes

Make sure to check the sausage balls during the cooking. The times are approximate based on my fryer which is 1800W. Your time could vary.
I got 30 meatballs from this and figured 3 balls per person serving.
