Cheesy Sausage Biscuits

Cheesy Sausage Biscuits

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 - 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cubed white cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup cooked, crumbled sausage

Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in the egg with a fork, until the dough is slightly moistened.  Gradually add the milk, stirring just until the dough comes together into a sticky dough.  Fold in the cheese and sausage.  Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let the dough rest on the counter for about 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450.  Spray a muffin tin (makes 8 large biscuits) with nonstick spray and spoon the dough into the muffin tin, loosely mounding it in each cup.  Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown on top.  Remove from the pan and eat warm.
