Bacon Wrapped Sausage Balls

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).

  • 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

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.

Hi there i live in Australia and I have no idea what this ingredient is? "1 8ct. can of biscuits" is? Biscuits here are a sweet cookie type thing that you have with a cup of tea??!!

Can you explain that as I'd like to try the recipe. Also, does "can" mean tin - as in a metal tin?

Many thanks

Deborah

Deborah - Biscuits are a type of breakfast roll, specifically the kind that the dough is premade and sold in the refrigerated section of the grocery store on a tube (can). You pop them open and bake. These are the most common type: https://www.pillsbury.com/products/biscuits/grands-refrigerated-biscuits/homestyle-orginal

Hope this helps.

It's too bad that these cannot be baked so that there wouldn't be added fat or Cholesterol.

There may or may not be a way to do that. I would imagine you could probably secure the bacon with the toothpick and place on a pan and bake them, but I also am not sure how they would hold up that way as they warmed at a slower pace. If you decide to try it that way, please share your results.

I would like to try these in the oven to cut down the grease, what do you think?

I say go for it. I am all about trying something new. If you do it, let us know if it works. I'm wondering if you put a drip pan under a wire rack if you'd get rid of most of the grease? Anyway, do let me know how it works.
