I found this recipe on the label from a package of mozzarella cheese. It looks like a very simple recipe and if you use part-skim cheese it saves some calories and fat. Not only is the recipe easy but prep time is only about 15 minutes and cooking time is 10-18 minutes so these will be ready in about 30 minutes! These can be a great snack for a brunch too. I’m all about saving time these days as I am going back to work in the real world and I’ll be looking for ways to save time when making snacks and meals. I’ll also be trying to get back to a healthier diet so I can lose some extra pounds. The recipe calls for hot breakfast sausage. If you can find chicken breakfast sausages you can also save some calories and fat too!
1 pound hot/spicy breakfast sausage (your choice)
16 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, diced into small pieces
1 egg, beaten
1 cup biscuit mix (your choice)
