Homemade Sausage and Cheddar Biscuits

Wednesday, January 27, 2021
Homemade Pork Sausage and Cheddar Biscuits are just the perfect all in one breakfast biscuits.

They're super tasty and so easy to make plus who could resist all that melted cheddar cheese inside.

Of course, they can be an addition to any meal alongside a pot of chili or hearty stew but they're just great for any time of the day or snacking.

The best part is making these ahead of time, they freeze perfectly and taste great reheated so they are surely a time saver if you're in a hurry.

The kids absolutely love these for breakfast and they're totally portable to take with them on the go.

The biscuits are tender and flaky and taste great plain or even with a little butter brushed over the top.

If your family loves breakfast sandwiches you may also like to try our Baked Egg Cupcakes.

These are the perfect all in one biscuit. These sausage and cheese biscuits with herbs and spices make them a great breakfast when you're on the go and even freeze perfectly.


  • 3 cups flour 
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 teaspoon granulated  garlic powder 
  • 1  teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  •  1/2 cup  butter cut into tiny pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk (make your own using milk and 1 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice) 
  • 2 cups cooked crumbled breakfast sausage or use Italian mild loose sausage cooked
  • 1 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese or provolone
  • Optional Garnish:
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • more shredded cheddar 
  • granulated garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Grease a muffin pan and set it aside. Do not use paper liners.
  3.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, and oregano.
  4. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, place the butter into the flour mixture and blend together( like you would for pie crust) evenly.
  5. Add t the buttermilk, sausage, and cheeses,  just until evenly blended, do not overmix this dough.
  6. If the dough seems a little dry use a few more teaspoons of buttermilk.
  7. I use a large ice cream scoop and bake them in cupcake tins.
  8. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, a little more sharp cheddar, and granulated garlic powder.
  9. Note: These can also be a  drop biscuit onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet in rounds.
  10. You can also flour a cutting board and cut them into biscuit shapes or squares.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges turn brown.
  12. This makes around 15 large muffins.
  13. These can be frozen and popped into a toaster oven for another time for around 10 minutes at 400 degrees or in the air fryer for 5 minutes.
