Crispy Breakfast Bites w/Pepper Gravey

I love coming up with something really different for breakfast.  It believe it is the most important meal of the day.  You can only eat so many eggs and than they are just eggs.  Breakfast bites don't have to be just for breakfast.  They work well anytime you want to make a tray of finger foods to enjoy a peaceful afternoon.  The crunchy crusty outside is really tasty, and the inside is soft and full of flavor.  This will make one tray of about a dozen.

4 Slices of Bacon
1/2 16 oz. pkg. Breakfast Sausage
1/4 Cup Minced Onion
1/4 Cup Minced Green Pepper
1 Small Jalapeno Pepper Minced
4 Cloves Minced Garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 Egg
2 Cups Flour
2 Medium Potatoes
Canola Oil

Cook bacon until crisp.  Let cool and crumble to fine pieces.  Brown and crumble sausage in same skillet.  Add bacon, onions and peppers and stir for two minutes adding salt and pepper.  Drain all grease and save for later use.

Shred potatoes using a cheese shredder, or shredder attachment for food processor.  Toss potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add meat mixture.  Add egg and flour (you may not need the entire 2 cups) stirring until you have one sticky mess.   Heat oil in a skillet filling about 2 1/2 inches full.  Roll potatoes into one inch balls and place into hot oil.  Cook on one side until golden brown (about 7 to 10 minutes).  Turn with a slated spoon and cook other side until brown.  Serve with pepper gravy using grease left from bacon and sausage..

1 cup flour
2 cups milk
2 TBS pepper

Stir in cold milk while whisking briskly to avoid lumps.
