Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Drizzle melted butter into the flour mixture while the mixer is running to form a crumbled mixture.
Add grated cheese, sausage, hash browns, and cream cheese then beat until fully mixed. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula and beat a bit longer to make sure all the flour from the bottom of the bowl has been incorporated.
Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop balls of the mixture. Place scoops 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets. You can roll the balls in your hands to make them more smooth and compact, but this isn’t necessary.
Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from oven. Garnish with a bit of finely chopped parsley.
Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula and beat a bit longer to make sure that all the flour gets mixed in.
