- 8 ounces softened cream cheese
- 4 cups frozen shredded hash browns
- 1 pound ground breakfast sausage
- 1 ½ cups Bisquick (or a similar biscuit mix)
- 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
Step 1: Preheat Oven and Prepare Baking Sheet
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Step 2: Mix Ingredients
In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, ground breakfast sausage, shredded cheddar cheese, frozen shredded hash browns, and Bisquick (or a similar biscuit mix). Mix everything together until well combined. The mixture should have a uniform texture with all the ingredients well distributed.
Step 3: Shape the Bites
Using a scoop or your hands, form the mixture into balls, each about 1 ½ inches in size. Place these balls on the prepared baking sheet. Make sure to leave a little space between each one so they have room to expand while baking.
Step 4: Bake
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the sausage bites for approximately 20 to 25 minutes or until they are thoroughly cooked. You'll know they're done when they turn golden brown and have a crispy texture on the outside.
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy
Once the Crispy Hashbrown and Sausage Bites are done, remove them from the oven. Let them cool slightly before serving. These delicious bites can be served on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce.
