Sausage Biscuit Bites - Football Friday


It's tailgating time again!  We are making these Sausage Biscuits Bites for the game this weekend.  We've made these several times; they are SO good!  You can roll the sausage and cheese into balls ahead of time and assemble the biscuit bites when you are ready to bake them.  I was worried that these biscuit bites would be greasy, but they weren't.  I used Tennessee Pride sausage and Pillsbury Grands Jr biscuits - that might make a difference.  These are great for breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner.  Chicken Legs highly recommends serving these with some warm maple syrup.



Sausage Biscuit Bites
(Printable Recipe)

2 (10 count) cans flaky biscuits (Grands Jr)
1 lb sausage (Tennessee Pride)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400.

Mix uncooked sausage and cheese gently until well blended. Shape into 40 balls of equal size.

Remove biscuits from cans and separate each biscuit into two layers, making 40 total biscuit layers. Press one layer of biscuit into cup of lightly greased mini-cupcake pan. Repeat with remaining layers.

Place sausage-cheese ball in each biscuit cup. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until biscuits are browned and sausage balls are bubbly.

  9. Looks delicious! Is 8-10 minutes enough time to cook the sausage thoroughly?

  10. Monica - mine were done in 8-10 minutes, but all ovens are different. I would check one at 8 minutes and adjust the cooking time accordingly.

  19. Do you think you can make these ahead and freeze them? I'm looking for breakfast recipes I can make, freeze, and give to a friend for her Christmas breakfast.

    1. You can. Bake them first and then freeze them.

  23. About how big were the sausage balls? About a teaspoon of sausage? Or less?

    1. It was more than a teaspoon. I just divided the sausage into 40 pieces. They were closer to a tablespoon.

  24. Use a small ice scoop to portion them. You get a consistent size which means everything should be done at the same time.
