SAUSAGE HASHBROWN BALLS (Adapted from plain chicken)

These sausage balls have been around FOREVER, but what makes these different is the addition of hash browns.  So they add another texture and also make a nice side dish for a breakfast/brunch.  And, they’re still extremely easy to make and also freeze if needed.

1 lb hot sausage, uncooked
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 cups Bisquick (I use the Bisquick with zero trans fats)
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 (30oz) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes (about 4 cups)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all ingredients until well combined.
Roll into 1 1/2-inch balls.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until brown.

***Sausage balls may be frozen uncooked. If baking after freezing, take them out of the freezer, then add a few minutes to the baking time.
