Quick Sausage Drop Biscuits

I made these Sausage Cheese Puffs a couple of weeks ago and took down for breakfast after the football game. They were a huge hit. I would describe these puffs as gourmet sausage balls, but they are much easier to make than sausage balls. No heavy mixing and rolling.  Just cook the sausage and mix with the other ingredients and scoop out.  

How to Make Sausage Cheese Puffs

As I said, these sausage drop biscuits are super easy to make. Combine cooked sausage, Bisquick, cheddar cheese, and buttermilk. Use a medium cookie scoop, scoop the dough, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Pop the cookie sheet in the oven and bake.

  • I used Jimmy Dean sausage. Feel free to substitute ground turkey sausage.
  • You can use regular, gluten-free, or Heart Healthy Bisquick.
  • I used a medium cookie scoop to scoop the dough and it was perfect.  
  • Feel free to use a smaller or larger cookie scoop. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly. Smaller biscuits won’t take as long to cook, and larger biscuits will take a few minutes longer.
  • You can use any cheese that you prefer in this recipe.
  • You can make the puffs ahead of time and freeze after baking for later.
    • Reheat the puffs at 400ºF for 7-9 minutes or until heated through. They do not need to thaw first.

Sausage Puffs for Parties or Breakfast

These sausage biscuits are a new favorite at our house. They are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or party snacks. I am going to double the recipe next time and freeze the leftovers – stock the freezer for the holidays. These will be perfect for Christmas morning at our house. Serve the biscuits with some eggs and smother them with gravy – YUM!

  1. thanks for the info
    so it's not ground pork
    it's "sauage"
    too bad I live in Mexico and can't get pork sauage down here.
    oh well maybe I could make my own sauage

  2. just found your site and it is awesome
    what kind of sauage do you use fro the sauage cheese puffs?
    is it just plain ground pork or some type of breakfast sauage?

  3. Amanda Mae – I think you could freeze the dough. Just make sure to increase your cooking time if you don't thaw them out. Good idea!

  4. Instead of baking them and then freezing, could you flash freeze the drops, bags them, then just pull out what you want to bake when you need them? May be a dumb question…sorry! 🙂

    1. I do that all the time and they are perfect. Just be sure you have room in the freezer to do that! lol One Christmas I didn't and had to ask a neighbor if I could use her garage freezer, of course she obliged and I gave her this yummy treat.

  5. No doubt, TGIFF!!!!

    On XMAS eve, hubby and I have a tradition of snack food. He always requests sausage balls.

    These look like some that he would luv.
