Cheesy sausage biscuits are a grab ‘n go favorite when you need breakfast in a hurry. Tender, fluffy biscuits are topped with breakfast sausage and lots of shredded cheese. Slice ’em and fill with scrambled eggs for a great breakfast sandwich, too.
- 1 can of refrigerated biscuit dough, or you can make your own biscuit dough
- 1/2 pound ground Italian pork sausage
- 1 cup cheddar (or your favorite variety) cheese, shredded
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place a paper liner into the bottom of each well, or lightly spray wells with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium sized frying pan over medium high heat, cook the pork sausage until it has browned and no pink remains; Drain grease and set pork aside to cool.
Using kitchen shears or a knife, cut each piece of biscuit dough in half. Use your fingers to press a piece of dough evenly across the bottom of each well of the pan.
Place pan into oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and use your fingers to press the partially baked dough down into the pan; USE CAUTION! The dough will be hot!
Sprinkle cooked sausage evenly over the top of each biscuit; Repeat with shredded cheese; Place pan back into oven and cook for 7-9 minutes, or until cheese has melted and biscuits are lightly browned.
Remove pan from oven and allow biscuits to cool in pan for 1-2 minutes before carefully removing them. Serve while still warm.
