Easy Breakfast Recipe

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! These are great for breakfast, lunch, snack, or dinner.  Chicken Legs highly recommends serving these with some warm maple syrup.

How to Make Cheesy Sausage Biscuit Bites

These biscuits are super easy to make. In a large bowl, combine breakfast sausage and shredded cheddar cheese. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the sausage mixture and form it into 40 balls. Take refrigerated biscuits and split them into two rounds each. Place the biscuit dough in a mini muffin pan. Press the sausage ball into the biscuit and bake. I was worried that these biscuit bites would be greasy, but they weren’t. They are delicious!

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can Sausage Biscuit Bites be made in advance? Yes! You can roll the sausage and cheese into balls ahead of time and assemble the biscuit bites when you are ready to bake them.
  • What brand of sausage do you use? I use Tennessee Pride or Jimmy Dean sausage.
    • Use a roll of hot sausage for a little kick.
    • You can substitute turkey sausage for pork sausage if you prefer.
  • This recipe uses smaller refrigerated biscuits. Look for 6-oz cans of biscuits. They will have 5 biscuits per can. You need 4 cans or 20 biscuits total. 
    • They are sometimes called Grands Jr
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

What to Serve with Sausage Biscuits Bites

As I said, we LOVE these biscuits! They are so easy to make and they taste great!!! You can dip the bites in some Homemade Ranch Dressing or Homemade Salsa. If you are making these for breakfast, whip up some eggs and grits, and you are set!

  1. My Daughter and Granddaughter are not sausage fans. If I made these for everyone else, how do you think they would turn out using ground beef in place of sausage?

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

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

  4. Alabama Girl with a War Eagle Heart, Living in Arizona. This crowd loves sausage balls and these are Fantastic!

  5. 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.

  6. We love sausage balls during the holidays, with bisquick mixed in, but I love this idea of putting the sausage in a biscuit cup! Thanks!

  7. I just made these for my husband and son to have as a grab and go breakfast. I don't know if they will make it till morning!!! So easy and so yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Can these be frozen and reheated as a ready quick breakfast? If so does anyone know the just right microwave times?

  9. I made my own homemade biscuits for this recipe, and my hubby absolutely loved them! Simple, easy, and Fantastic recipe. Will definitely make again and again. :]

  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.

  11. these look so fabulous and EASY! a new twist on the standard sausage ball everybody loves! Can't wait to make these, and try them with the maple syrup dip. Yum

  12. You are making it very difficult for me to decide what I'm making for breakfast next week on my bunko beach trip when it's my turn to cook!
