These little gems are meaty, cheesy and packed with flavor…
Roll the sausage and cheese into balls, nest them in a mini biscuit and bake, easy peasy. Maybe serve with a little mustard, or your favorite dipping sauce.
I have made the appetizer using hot Italian sausage and regular pork sausage. I prefer the hot and spicy, but use whatever type of sausage floats your boat. Add pepper, or not.
After trying one, you may never stop at a fast food drive-in to get a sausage biscuit again!
It’s a sad sad thing that the Chicago Bears won’t be playing this Super Bowl, so woefully, I’m saying, “Go New England, go Tom Brady!”
Better make extra of these Cheesy Sausage Biscuit Bites because they will disappear as quickly as a Tom Brady pass to Edelman!
Cheesy Sausage Biscuit Bites
2 (10 count) cans flaky biscuits (Grands Jr)
1 pound bulk hot or sweet Italian sausage or pork sausage
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper, optional
Preheat oven to 400°.
Mix raw sausage, cheese and pepper 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.
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.
