Breakfast Biscuits with Cheese and Sausage
3 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Vegetable Shortening
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Pound Breakfast sausage meat, cooked and crumbled
8 Ounces Aged White Cheddar Cheese, shredded (or your favorite)
1 Cup Butter Milk
Preheat oven to 425°F
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Blend in the vegetable shortening until the mixture looks sandy and the vegetable shortening is evenly blended into the flour mixture.
Fold in the crumbled sausage and shredded cheese.
Make a well in the center of the bowl and add the milk to the well and mix gently until dough just comes together.
Spray a 9X13X2 baking dish with cooking spray and press the dough into the pan into an even layer.
Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until bottoms are browned and tops are golden. Allow to cool in pan at least 10 minutes before cutting.
I like to serve these slightly warm.
I think a little bit of green onion would be awesome in these. I know I love green onion too much, but it really does add a nice something-I-can't-put-my-finger-on to so many savory foods.
Or cut one of these in half and put a fried egg in the center, man that would be a great breakfast!!
