These Flourless Breakfast Sausage Rolls might be flourless, but you do not have to be gluten free to enjoy them! These are a breakfast for everyone.
This recipe has sat in the folder on my computer for well over a year. Maybe longer. I think I first made these in 2020. The reason for that is that I kept debating how or where to post this recipe.
These flourless breakfast sausage rolls are gluten free so it makes sense to share them with my gluten free readers, but my gluten eating son and husband enjoy these so I knew my regular readers would enjoy these as well.
In the end, I decided to share them with both my gluten free readers and regular non gluten free readers.
If you are not gluten free, but know someone that is gluten free be sure to share this recipe with them.
What are flourless breakfast rolls?
These flourless breakfast sausage rolls are based on my flourless tapioca rolls. It is the same basic recipe turned into a breakfast recipe.
Hint: If you have not tried my flourless pizza rolls they are also based on this basic dough. They are a fun way to change up pizza night.
Freezer Friendly Breakfast Rolls
Can you freeze breakfast rolls? These flourless breakfast rolls freeze great.
I have frozen them after baking and before baking.
If you bake from frozen you do have to partially defrost them first or add 3-5 minutes to the cooking time.
The ingredients for these flourless breakfast rolls are pretty typical in a gluten-free kitchen. If you are not gluten-free, you may have to buy the tapioca flour/starch.
If you can’t find tapioca flour it is usually in the gluten-free food section in stores. In the U.S. it is often also labeled as tapioca starch. If you want to know about tapioca flour I have a whole post on the difference between tapioca starch and tapioca flour.
- tapioca flour ( I like Bob’s Red Mill brand)
- baking powder
- cooked breakfast sausage
- 2 cups tapioca flour/starch (see note below)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 cups shredded colby jack, jack, or other cheese
- 4 eggs
- 1 pound ground breakfast sausage, cooked and fat drained off
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Whisk together the tapioca flour and baking powder.
- Stir in cheese and eggs.
- Mix and knead until a dough forms. ( I do this in my Kitchen Aid mixture.) This is a wet more sticky dough. It will not be the same as regular bread dough.
- Mix in cooked sausage.
- Divide into 8 pieces. I use a cookie scoop to make sure the pieces are uniform.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes or until done, but not browned. You want these to be soft and tender.
I have found the best results using Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Flour/Starch.
