2 (10 count) cans flaky biscuits (Grands Jr)
1 pound bulk hot or sweet Italian sausage or pork sausage
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400°.
Mix raw sausage and cheese gently until well combined.
Shape into 40 equal-sized balls.
Remove biscuits from cans and separate each biscuit into 2 layers, making 40 total biscuit layers.
Flatten a biscuit layer slightly in the palm of your hand.
Press into cup of mini-cupcake pan (slightly greased if not non-stick bakeware.)
Repeat with remaining biscuit layers.
Place sausage-cheese ball in each biscuit cup.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly browned and sausage balls are bubbly.
