I’ve been using this basic biscuit recipe since I was young and decided I was going to make biscuits one day when my mother wasn’t home. I didn’t have a recipe back then. I just put ingredients in the bowl until it looked like the amounts she put in there. For such I long time, I had to make them in the very same bowl every time.
With making biscuits second nature by now, I decided to change it up. Mostly because it was so difficult for Big Daddy to juggle his biscuit and juice driving to work every morning (he refuses to get out of bed one second earlier than he has to. I so don’t understand that!)

The sausage stuffed biscuit
Basic Biscuit Recipe
- 1/4 c shortening I have to use Crisco
- 2 c self-rising flour
- 2/3 c buttermilk
- No need to cut the shortening in the flour first, I just put all the ingredients in a bowl and stir it with a big ole spoon. (If you're not from the South and are wondering what a 'big ole' spoon is, well, it's just a big spoon. We have a tendency to say 'big ole' about anything and everything... kind of like darlin' and kind of and over yonder! We'll have Southern English class later!) When all the ingredients are incorporated, pour dough out on a floured board, knead a couple times and cut into biscuits. Bake at 425 degrees about 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
For Stuffed Biscuits:1 recipe Biscuit dough, cut into biscuits6 scrambled eggs, cooked not firm1/2 lb breakfast sausage, crumbled and friedor1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled1/2 lb shredded sharp cheddar cheeseInstructionsSpray muffing pan with vegetable cooking spray.
