Breakfast Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites

Breakfast Sausage Egg and Cheese bites 






















Instead of making links or patties, why not add a real treat to your breakfast next time. These are so good and you can keep them in the fridge as a breakfast side, or as an appetizer or even a high protein snack.  Love these! 


Breakfast Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites


1 pound Jimmy Dean Sausage 

2 cups freshly shredded cheddar cheese 

4 eggs 

4 ½ tablespoons butter, melted 

2 tablespoons sour cream 

1/3 cup coconut flour (heaping) 

1/4 teaspoon baking powder 

1/4 teaspoon salt 

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 


Melt the butter and set it aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick foil or parchment paper. 



















Brown the sausage, breaking it up as it fries. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate or bowl. Set aside. 


























In a medium to large size bowl, combine the melted butter, eggs, sour cream, salt and garlic. Whisk together.  


Add the coconut flour (slightly more than 1/3 cup) and baking powder to the mixture and whisk until well combined. Stir in the browned sausage and cheese. 


Roll mixture into 1 inch balls and place on your lined baking sheet. This will make 35 small balls and they fit perfectly (5 rows of 7). They only need to be about 1/2 inch apart. 





























Bake for 14-18 minutes or until slightly browned. Enjoy immediately, and store any leftovers in the fridge for up to a week. 


These may be prepared ahead and frozen uncooked. To bake from    frozen: thaw on baking sheet 15 minutes; bake in preheated oven     20-25 minutes or until golden brown.










Want to save time?   Use one 9.6 ounce package fully cooked Jimmy Dean Hearty Sausage Crumbles instead of one 16 oz roll of fresh breakfast sausage.  Comes in pork or turkey sausage.
