Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 pound mild breakfast sausage
  • cup Colby-Jack cheese, grated
  • 16 ounce bag frozen hash browns, thawed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, sliced and softened
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • Serve hot.

Notes

  • 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.
