Cheddar Sausage Biscuits
Biscuits, otherwise known as the house bread of the South, have many faces. Classic fluffy Southern buttermilk biscuits are the gold standard. That said, there's absolutely no reason you can't add goodies to a classic biscuit to change the flavor and add interest. Whether you make them sweet like cinnamon swirl raisin biscuits or cheddar ranch drop biscuits or biscuits stuffed with ham and eggs the versatility of homemade biscuits is endless.
Cheddar Sausage Biscuit Making Tips
- As you can see, I opted to cut these biscuits into squares. You can make them into any shape you like using a variety of biscuit cutters in various sizes. The choice is yours.
- For this recipe, I like to freeze the butter and toss it through the dry ingredients rather than cutting in with a pastry blender. It works perfectly.
- When sifting dry ingredients, it's perfectly fine to use a whisk making this task so much easier.
- When making biscuits, it's important not to over mix the dough. This dough will need to be kneaded a couple of times just to bring it together. Once it comes together and is smooth, it's time to stop. If not, the over worked dough can make the biscuits tough.
- These biscuits can be baked on a cookie sheet or, side by side in a 9 x 9 inch baking pan.
