It’s like breakfast in a ball, these Bacon and Sausage Breakfast Balls are a wonderful weekend treat or special at holiday time. Enjoy them! Pair with a side of fresh fruit for a complete breakfast idea!
The holiday’s are upon us, and I feel like I am moving in fast forward trying to get everything done as quickly as possible.
One of my favorite things this time of year, is to make special recipes for breakfast for my family.
These Bacon and Sausage Breakfast Balls came about several years ago, after seeing another similar recipe for a lunchtime/snack recipe. I knew I could make a breakfast recipe that my teenagers would love.
It all started with the bacon actually, because we had a ton of it that needed to be used up.
We love to use it to wrap around things (like these chicken breasts) and we prefer a thicker, heartier, bold flavored bacon (like Wright Bacon).
Why we love this recipe
- Young and old alike love them. They are a frequently requested item anytime of year.
- They actually freeze really well, and we can just pop one in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes.
- This recipe is actually really easy and includes typical breakfast favorites.
What you need for Bacon Wrapped Sausage Balls
- 1 8 ct. can of biscuits
- ½ lb. ground sausage, cooked
- 1 cup of shredded cheese or 8 cubes of cheese, any type
- 8 slices of Wright® Brand Bacon
- Canola Oil for Frying
How to make Bacon Wrapped Sausage Balls
Simply separate the biscuits and roll them out into about a 3 inch diameter. Top each circle of dough with cooked ground sausage.
Next sprinkle on your cheese of choice. We chose Monterey Jack but you could use any kind you’d like.
We also used shredded cheese but you can cube a block of cheese and place it on top of the sausage instead.
Once all the circles are topped with sausage and cheese, you are going to close up the circle and form a ball/bundle.
Seal the edges so that no goodness falls out.
Simply wrap each Bacon and Sausage Breakfast Ball in a slice of Wright® Brand Bacon securing with toothpicks to keep it all together.
Heat Canola Oil in a large skillet or even your fryer to 350 degrees and add your Bacon and Sausage Breakfast Balls one at a time.
Allow the balls to cook on each side for about 5 minutes or until you see the dough turn golden and the bacon is cooked.
Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Serve warm and with White Country Gravy for dipping.
