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 Wright® Brand Bacon actually, because it’s the perfect bacon to wrap around things (like these chicken breasts) and it’s a thicker, heartier, bold flavored bacon. It is my choice in bacon for these reasons and the fact that it comes in 1.5 lb packages so I always have it when I need it.
We headed out to Kroger to pick up Wright® Brand Bacon, as well as all the other necessary items (ground sausage, cheese and biscuits) and brought it all home for breakfast the next morning.
Bacon and Sausage Breakfast Balls are simple to make and fry up in about 10 minutes. I haven’t met a single teenager who doesn’t love them including my own five and all of their friends!
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.
They are delicious and quite filling. Add a side of fruit and you pretty much have a complete breakfast!
