Sausage Cheddar Biscuits

Posted by Karla Powell on 16th Mar 2021

I am so fortunate to have friends share recipe ideas with me.  A dear friend thought this recipe could be adapted to use our summer sausage.  It was a hit - let me know what you think too!

Servings: 12 biscuits


3 cups all purpose flour

5 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup butter frozen and grated

2 cups shredded cheddar

2 Tbsp fresh chives

1 cup full fat buttermilk

2 Tbsp melted butter to brush tops

2 cups (about 6 oz) Silver Creek Summer Sausage, finely diced


Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Dice sausage into tiny pieces, set aside

In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

Add grated butter, mix until evenly distributed. I used a pastry blender

To the bowl add sausage, cheese and chives, mix well.

Make a well in the center adding buttermilk. Mix thoroughly. Turn out onto a lightly floured non-stick surface. Turn a couple of times to bring together and lightly coat with flour.

Press into roughly a 9 x 9 inch square around 1-inch thick. Use a sharp knife dipped in flour to cut into 12 even squares.

Place squares side by side on a baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden and puffed.

Serve immediately brushed with additional butter, if desired.
