Hash Brown Sausage Balls

by Melissa

Sunday is our breakfast day. If we are going to go all out and fix a big breakfast it will usually happen on Sunday mornings.

So this past Sunday morning I fixed up some yummy hash brown sausage balls to go with our scrambled eggs.

I figured while I was already making a mess in the kitchen, I might as well take some pictures so I can share on the blog.

These Hash Brown Sausage Balls are the perfect bite for breakfast. They are also great for the holidays as well.

It is surprising how much we love this recipe because we aren’t even a sausage family. You won’t catch my husband eating a sausage and biscuit and we don’t care for sausage on our pizza.

However, there is just something about sausage balls that we love. They are tasty when you make them the original way, but every now and then I like to throw in some hash browns.

My favorite being the Simply Potatoes. Having them already thawed and shredded makes it super easy to just toss the hash browns into this dish. Especially since this recipe calls for them to be thawed.

This recipe makes quite a bit, especially for a household of just 3 like ours.

We like to cook half and freeze half since they are so easy to pop into the oven in the mornings and just have a couple before work or school.

If you are planning on freezing them just make sure you do so before cooking.

The instructions state to cook the sausage before mixing in the other ingredients, but the photo shows raw sausage being mixed in. Any comment?

Carol,

The first picture is of the raw sausage cooking in a pan, which is step 1. The 4th picture of the collage is of the made sausage balls pre-cooked and you can see that the sausage is browned. You definitely want to cook the sausage first.

Thanks,
Melissa
