Garlic Parmesan Cheesy Sausage Bombs

Garlic Parmesan Cheesy Sausage Bombs are soft and tender portable poppers, loaded with ooey gooey mozzarella cheese and scrumptious bites of sausage. Topped with garlic butter and Parmesan cheese breakfast with a simple recipe doesn't get much better than this!

We are so excited to be partnering with our friends at Jones Dairy Farm to bring you a scrumptious breakfast or brunch recipe perfect for the holidays with family and friends, starring one of my favorite ingredients: Sausage Links!!!

Most mornings around here start with their Jones Dairy Farm fully cooked breakfast links. I especially love their chicken sausage links for my quick and easy make ahead breakfast. I make up a weeks worth of scrambled eggs with sausage and cheese in little bowls that I can quickly heat up and eat. I know I have mentioned that I am not much of a morning person. I mean I want to be, but I am pretty much a zombie in the morning.

That is where easy breakfasts come in. I know you all loved Cheesy Bacon and Egg Breakfast Bombs so much. So I decided to share another scrumptious breakfast bombs creation with you. Being it's National Frozen Food Month and all, my shortcut using frozen dinner rolls work out perfect here. If you prefer homemade though you can check out the Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Pretzel Bombs and use the dough recipe from that one.

Being I always have Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Fully Cooked Sausage in my freezer, I figured what could be an easier breakfast that to make a scrumptious Garlic Parmesan Cheesy Sausage Bomb?

They start with frozen dinner rolls (yes that simple). The bread roll is rolled out and stuffed with huge chunks of mozzarella cheese and scrumptious bite-size pieces of sausage! Then you wrap it up like a little package, top it with garlic butter and Parmesan cheese and bake it in the oven (or pop it in the fridge until morning). And you can customize these to make them whatever you like. They are your favorite breakfast items rolled into one scrumptious, portable taste sensation!

What kind of taste sensations are you creating at home? Jones Dairy Farm is once again hosting their annual Rise, Sizzle & Shine Recipe Contest and the prizes are bigger and better than ever with a $5,000 Grand Prize! You can get all of the details here. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Starting the day with an amazing breakfast inspired by our traditional cheesy bombs is the perfect way to get the day going! Ready in 30 minutes, you can't hardly beat that. Tender poppers stuffed with ooey gooey mozzarella cheese and scrumptious bites of sausage. I love them dipped in marinara but they are so good, they don't need anything at all.

I will let you all know that you can pick up Jones Dairy Farm products at your local retailer. The company’s products are distributed nationwide, so be sure to check out their product locator so see where you can pick some up. If you’re looking for the breakfast sausage, it’s in the freezer section!


With love from our Simple Kitchen to yours.

Garlic Parmesan Cheesy Sausage Bombs
SERVES 12  |  ACTIVE TIME 20 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 35 Minutes

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
12 frozen white dinner roll dough balls
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
12 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into 12 (1-ounce) pieces
1 (7 ounce) package Jones Dairy Farm Mild Pork Breakfast Sausage Links, chopped into bite size pieces
2 tablespoons fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried parsley

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Move the oven rack to the center. Lightly flour the counter top.

Place 12 dinner rolls on a microwave safe plate and microwave on defrost for about 2 minutes (or until dough is no longer frozen, but not cooked).

Meanwhile cut the cheese into 12 (1-ounce) pieces and chop the sausage into bite size pieces. Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

In a small bowl melt the butter and add the salt and the garlic powder. Stir the mixture until the it is combined. Set aside.

Toss 1 dough ball in the flour and flatten and stretch it like you are making a mini pizza. Stretch the dough to about 3” across. Add 1 cube of cheese and a 2 tablespoons of chopped sausage to the center of the dough. Pull the edges of the dough together to create a ball. If the ball won’t seal, tap your finger tips into the flour and crimp the seal together.

Place the bombs on the baking sheet, crimped side down. Repeat until they are all on the baking sheet. Brush the bombs with about 1/2 of the butter and then sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.

Bake the bombs for 12-15 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the bombs are no longer doughy.

Meanwhile, add the parsley to the remaining butter.

Remove the tray from oven and brush them with the remaining butter.Place them on a serving tray.  Serve with marinara or alone. Enjoy!

DONNA'S NOTE:  The ooey gooey cheese may escape some of your sausage bombs.  That is a beautiful thing!  Scoop all that cheesy goodness up onto the plate and serve.  Your guests will go crazy over them.
