Sausage Cheese Biscuits The Southern Lady Cooks

These sausage cheese biscuits are so good! They are a little bit different in that instead of serving a biscuit with a sausage patty and a slice of cheese, you add it to the batter. I love them! Seriously, my family can’t get enough of them. They are delicious with a hot cup of coffee in the morning. I highly recommend serving them slathered in honey and butter. You could easily double or triple this recipe.

Ingredients Needed for Sausage Cheese Biscuits:

All-purpose flour

Baking powder

Baking soda


Butter or margarine

Pork Sausage

Shredded cheese  (I used sharp cheddar)

Buttermilk (can use regular milk)

Recipe Notes: I usually brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter before cooking. These biscuits are very versatile in that you can add in spices or herbs that your family enjoys. These biscuits freeze nicely and they also reheat great in the microwave. They make a wonderful grab-and-go breakfast.

    Loved the sausage and cheese, but I really loved the biscuits themselves.
    I’m gonna use the biscuit without the sausage and cheese for biscuits and gravy.5 stars
