This sausage biscuit dressing may be on of my most favorite things about the holiday season.


Sausage Biscuit Dressing The Southern Lady Cooks

Sausage biscuit dressing is so easy to make and absolutely delicious. I love this dish because you can make the biscuits several days before. I like to make biscuits for breakfast during the holiday season and I make sure I have extra to make this fabulous dressing. The biscuits make this dressing very soft and moist. It’s definitely a family favorite.

Ingredients Needed for Sausage Biscuit Dressing

Large biscuits (enough to make 8 cups, biscuits should be at least a day old)

Mild breakfast sausage

Yellow onion, diced

Celery, diced

Minced garlic

Fresh sage

Fresh thyme

Chicken broth

salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Notes: any kind of biscuits will work with this recipe. I recently made this dish with our sourdough biscuits and it was incredible. It’s also great with our cathead biscuits.

If you like this recipe, you may also like our old-fashioned cornbread dressing or our sausage and rice dressing.
