Sausage & Hash Brown Balls {Football Friday}

Sausage & Hash Brown Balls - mix together and freezer for a quick snack. Always a HUGE HIT! Can freeze for later. Great for breakfast or at parties. There are never any left!

Sausage Balls are one of our favorite snacks. I always have a bag in the freezer for a quick snack. I had some frozen hash browns in the the freezer and was thinking of ways to use them up. I wondered how they would taste in my favorite sausage ball recipe. Only one way to find out!

I whipped up a batch of sausage balls and mixed the hash browns. I waited patiently for them to bake up. I took one bite and had my answer. They are awesome! These would be great for parties or Christmas morning! Just scramble up some eggs for a super quick Christmas morning breakfast.

Sausage & Hash Brown Balls
approximately 60
(Printable Recipe)

  • 1 lb hot sausage, uncooked
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 (30oz) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes (about 4 cups)

Preheat oven to 400F.

Mix all ingredients until well combined. (I use my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook attachment) Roll into 1 1/2-inch balls. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until brown.

Sausage balls may be frozen uncooked. If baking frozen, add a few minutes to the baking time.

  1. I wonder if you could use Chorizo? Then put them in a tortilla. Quick breakfast burritos :)

  6. Sounds good. I like trying different ways to make sausage balls. One question....do you thaw out the hash browns?

    1. I did not thaw them first. I just broke up any big clumps of hash browns.

    1. I usually freeze them and then bake them from frozen, but I don't see why it would work the other way around. I think it would be fine to bake and then freeze.
