Southern Style Biscuits

Black Pepper Cheddar Sausage Biscuits

Breakfast for Dinner tonight!

I spent so much time with my Grandmother in her kitchen. She’s one of my favorite people in the whole world! Lot’s of recipes I will share are from her kitchen. And most of the others I credit to her because she taught me to taste things and to not be afraid to change a recipe. When you are out of one ingredient there is usually a substitute you can use. When I was a newlywed, I wanted to get her recipe for Chicken-n-Dumplins, cooked apples, and biscuits. She was happy to oblige but she didn’t have any recipes written down. So off I went to Grandmother’s house to watch her make each recipe and write it down. After years of practice, I find myself doing the same thing. Every time I go to a restaurant and try something new that I love, I find myself analyzing the recipe so I can recreate it at home.

The following recipe was adapted from one I found on Pinterest last year. It has become a family favorite- almost a staple in our home. I love to make a double recipe and freeze these. The trick is to put them on a baking sheet and stick the whole thing in the freezer. Once they are somewhat frozen you can remove them from the cookie sheet and put them in a freezer bag, then place the whole bag in the freezer for a quick future breakfast. They don’t stick together! You can remove 2 or all of them- just bake as many as you need at a time. I usually take these camping to bake for breakfast. Sometimes I make gravy to dip them in. Talk about delicious!

An alternate option for sausage is crumbled bacon! My family loves both variations!
