Sausage Biscuit Recipe

Sorry drive-thru, this sausage biscuit's for real

Drive away from the drive-thru, we've got a hot biscuit with your name on it. It's in your fridge. Maybe even your freezer. And guess what, if you want to ignore the whole making-the-sausage-and-biscuits-yourself thing, we won't judge you. We realize both sausage patties and biscuits come pre-formed in the freezer aisle. Go for it. But if you feel like getting your Southern Man on, whip up a mess of these 3-ingredient, 3-step biscuits, smush down a few sausage patties and watch brunch get hotter than a goat's butt in a pepper patch. That's something Southern people say, right? 

Use a half-batch of fresh pork sausage to make 12 patties. Freeze the rest and bring 'em to work for breakfast.

Feel free to pop some eggs in there, too:

We've got a biscuit to pick with some sausage.
 
Servings: 12 biscuits

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups self-rising flour, plus more for dusting surface
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup milk
1/2 batch fresh pork sausage
Directions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, then turn out onto a floured surface.
  3. Knead briefly until no longer sticky, then smash down flat and fold over in half.
  4. Cut out biscuits using a biscuit cutter, and repeat step 2 until all dough is used.
  5. Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Form sausage into patties slightly larger than the same diamater as the biscuits — they'll shrink a little.
  7. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and fry patties on each side for 2-3 minutes or until browned. Drain on a layer of paper towels and allow to rest.
  8. Slice biscuits in half and sandwich sausage patties inside. Add eggs, if using.
  9. Enjoy right away, or wrap well in foil, freeze and enjoy later.
