Lately, I’ve been trying to make sure that I keep the freezer stocked with homemade dishes that I can quickly reheat in the mornings for breakfast on the go or that Sam (and I) can grab and reheat in the afternoons for a snack. I don’t know what it is about teenage boys, but they seem to always be hungry no matter how often you feed them! Ha!

I’m certainly not complaining though!

Since cooking and feeding people is one of my favorite things, we’ve sort of developed an even deeper bond in the kitchen. Especially since he’s out of that phase where nothing sounds good and he’s now squarely in the phase where everything sounds amazing. Or at least for the moment. I’m crossing my fingers it continues.

Sam has always been a great eater, willing to try new things and sometimes surprising me with his requests for meals, but for a short while there I was getting a slight bit worried. He was always requesting the same things and barely picking at the food on his plate, more moving it around with his fork than really enjoying it. And like all Mamas, I fretted over him and over his plate and over whether or not he was eating enough. I sounded like my grandmother, I feel sure.

But as if something magical occurred overnight one night, boom, we are now squarely out of that phase and into the, “Hey Mama, what are we having for supper?” at 3 o’clock in the afternoon. And now, you can just imagine the smile on my face as I’m stocking the pantry, refrigerator and freezer full of food that not only fills him up but keeps him going.

Since biscuits have always been one of Sam’s absolute favorite things, I decided we needed something quick and easy to tide him over until suppertime that included that tried and true favorite. These delicious little nibbles came to be and have been a favorite in my house ever since. They remind me a combination of a sausage and cheese biscuit and sausage balls. In other words, they are simply scrumptious!

  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 16-ounce package breakfast sausage, browned and drained
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce optional


  • Preheat oven to 475º F. Whisk together flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or using a fork until the flour mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sausage, cheddar cheese, buttermilk and hot sauce until well combined. The dough will be moist and shouldn't have any visibly dry flour remaining in the mixture. Scoop biscuit bites using a tablespoon or a small cookie scoop and place onto rimmed baking sheets. Place into the oven and bake until cooked through and lightly browned, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.

Freezer instructions:

  • Bake as directed and allow to cool completely. Then, place into freezer safe zip top bags and place into the freezer for up to a month. To reheat, simply remove the number of biscuit bites you need and reheat in a 350º F preheated oven for about 8 to 10 minutes or heat in the microwave at 80% power for about 45 seconds.

  1. I love the sound of these sausage cheddar biscuits. I am thinking of making some for a coffee morning which is to raise money for cancer care. What are they like eaten cold or must they be heated… I thought something
    savoury would be a change to cakes etc. thanks Angeline

    1. Hi Angeline,
      I think they would be wonderful for an event like that! Rather than serving them cold, I would serve them at room temperature. You could make them ahead the evening before and store in the refrigerator overnight and then just allow them to reach room temperature for serving. What a wonderful cause! xo

  2. oh girl, we call these sausage balls in the south, and use bisquick to make em up real quick. they’re a staple at most bridal or baby showers, and all church pot lucks!! we even munch on them at our tailgate while the grill’s heating. if you add a package of creamcheese to the mix you will think you’ve died and gone to heaven!

    1. Hi Meg!
      These are just a little bit different from a sausage ball, or at least the ones that I’ve always had. They are lighter and fluffier and are the best combination of a sausage biscuit and a sausage ball! 🙂

    1. You can use equal amounts of butter or even coconut oil in place of the shortening if you’d like. Your end result won’t be as flaky, but will still be delicious.

  3. The recipe says it serves 24. Does that mean 24 people with about 3 Bites each? Your earlier Sausage Balls recipe says it serves 60. In that case does it make about 60 balls?

    Of the two recipes can you tell me which you like best?

    1. Hi Joan,
      The recipe makes about 24 individual biscuit bites. The sausage balls recipe makes about 60 individual sausage balls. Of the two recipes, I like them each for different purposes. For a quick go-to breakfast or brunch item, I’d turn to these biscuits bites. The classic sausage balls recipe is definitely delicious and has a special place in my heart too, but these little bites are just so quick and easy and fluffy! 🙂 I hope that helps!

      1. Thank you, Robyn. I have tried both recipes and like both, but like the sausage balls best. I had already halved the sausage biscuit bites when I first wrote and had gotten 36 bites using my small tablespoon size cookie scoop. Because my small bag of self-rising flour was pretty packed I decided to sift it before measuring. Maybe that through things off but I just don’t see how the full recipe could make only 24 bites. Both recipes are good though.

  4. These sound too Yummy! I thought, instead of adding the Hot Sauce, why not use the spicy Hot sausage? We love spicy! I’m in Texas, sooooo……spicy hot is the norm, of course! And, for a sit down breakfast ( if you have the time), scramble a couple of eggs, & a glass of OJ ….. yum!…a real good start in the morning! Sounds good to me!
