Sausage Cups

To create the biscuit dough for the bottom of the cup:

Combine in your mixer/food processor--

  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter, cut into small pieces

Stir in the following until you have a dough, knead and set aside.

  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
Then, for the filling you will need--

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 lb. sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Beat the eggs and then mix in the cream cheese, milk, sausage and shredded cheese. Divide your biscuit dough into 24 pieces. Press each piece into the bottom and up the sides of your muffin tin. Bake this in the oven at 400 degrees for 3 minutes. Then pour 1/4 cup of the egg mixture into each cup and bake an additional 12-15 minutes or until the eggs have set and the biscuit cups appear to have browned a bit.
