Homemade Sausage Cheddar Biscuits, this portable breakfast has the sausage and cheese baked right into tender and flaky biscuits.

Homemade Sausage Cheddar Biscuits

Breakfast is my favorite meal. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a morning person or because I fondly remember large family breakfasts on the weekends growing up. Maybe, it’s a little of both.

Homemade Sausage Cheddar Biscuits

For this reason, we have a big homecooked family breakfast on the weekends. We have any combination of homemade biscuits, waffles, or pancakes, with bacon or sausage, eggs, and gravy. Sometimes, when I plan well enough, I make cinnamon rolls which are my favorite.

Those family breakfasts favorites got me to thinking about a way that I could make something similar during the week. So, I mixed it sausage and cheese into homemade biscuits! And, they’re FABULOUS!

Homemade Sausage Cheddar Biscuits

The most amazing breakfast biscuits ever! Loaded with fresh crumbled sausage chunks, sharp cheddar cheese and green onions, if desired. You will want this for breakfast every single morning!

Homemade Sausage Cheddar Biscuits

  1. If you prefer more biscuit and less ‘filling’, you can cut the sausage and cheese in half.
  2. You can use sour cream, Greek yogurt, or plain yogurt for the buttermilk.
  3. As well, you can make ‘buttermilk’ by adding 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk. Stir. and give it about 10 minutes to curdle.
  4. Finally, you can substitute ham, bacon, for the sausage. You can also substitute Monterrey, pepper jack, gruyere, and Swiss for the cheddar.

These biscuits are best the day they are made. However, you can store leftovers in an airtight container, or wrap in plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Re-warm in the microwave or oven.

To freeze biscuits

Completely cool baked biscuits on a wire rack before wrapping and freezing. To prevent the biscuits from drying out, wrap tightly in heavy-duty aluminum foil or pack in freezer bags.

To reheat 

  • Microwave on HIGH for 10 to 30 seconds.
  • For the oven, place the foil-wrapped package in a preheated 300°F oven. Heat thawed biscuits about 10 minutes or frozen biscuits about 20 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a baking pan.
  • Cook and drain sausage.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 
  • Add the butter and, using a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture has pea-sized crumbs. Stir in the sausage and cheese (and green onions if you're adding them.)
  • Add the buttermilk and combine. I find it easiest to use a fork to gently stir the mixture until all of the dry ingredients are moistened. Then, use your hands to knead the mixture a few times in the bowl to bring the dough together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a parchment-lined counter and pat into an 8x10-inch rectangle. Cut the dough into 12 squares.
  • Transfer the biscuits to the baking pan, leaving 1-inches between each biscuit. Brush the tops of each biscuit with the melted butter.
  • Bake until the biscuits are golden brown, about 18 to 20 minutes.

  1. I make these as Christmas presents and freeze them prior to baking so people can bake fresh. They are a hit! Great recipe

  2. Could I use bisquick when I am short on time? Just add the cheese, sausage and onion? I’ve made cheese sausage biscuits with that exact recipe (a family tradition) and roll them out and cut them with a biscuit cutter. Then bake.
    Would that work the same if I use the same method of shaping the dough and the casserole dish?

  3. 5 stars
    Second time I have made these. This recipe is absolutely delicious! Cut into 24 this time. The kids absolutely love them, along with the rest of us.

  4. 5 stars
    I made them yummy. I used Unflavored Kiefer instead of buttermilk added an egg then added about 1/4 cup extra Kiefer when mixing, I added 1 tsp cream of tartar instead of the soda. They puffed up and needed all the room on the parchment lined cookie sheet. I’ll definitely try again as hubby was wonderfully impressed with fried eggs on top.
    Thank you
    You did 👍 good

  5. 5 stars
    These were delicious! Bread was soft & fluffy.
    I did add about 1 cup more of buttermilk. I thought they were too dry after mixing.
    I used turkey sausage and everyone loved them!

    1. 5 stars
      I’ve made these twice & they’re now part of my family’s weekly meals. I agree as they were a bit dry. I patted in extra Buttermilk several times on top of each Biscuit prior to baking & that really helped to solve the dry problem. Also, our Westie ❤️ the crumbs.

  6. They look really good !! Do they freeze well and if so recommendations on re-heating! Thanks

  7. Could you use self rising flour with these and leave out the salt, baking powder and baking soda? I don’t have them in my pantry.

  8. 5 stars
    Just made 2 batches: 1using the original recipe and 1 with ham and mozzarella cheese. Have a houseful of family visiting and everyone loved them.

      1. I find they don’t rise as much when refrigerated overnight but they’re still good.
