Sausage & Cheese Bites

1 lb. breakfast sausage, cooked, drained and cooled slightly

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

3 eggs, beaten

1 cup shredded cheddar

1/3 cup coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cook your breakfast sausage, drain and set it aside to cool slightly.

When the sausage has cooled add it to a mixing bowl and combine with the cream cheese until there are no cream cheese clumps left.

**It is important to make sure the sausage is not too hot before continuing as it will cook the egg when you add it in the next step**

Stir in cheese, eggs, coconut flour and baking powder.

When the mixture is well incorporated allow it to chill for 5-10 minutes. Coconut flour continues to absorb moisture so if it seems to runny it won't be.

**Skipping this step and not chilling the dough will result in flat bites.

Roll the balls into a small muffin size ball.

Grease a baking sheet and using a small cooking scoop place the Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites on the tray.  Bake 18-20 minutes.
