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!

These sausage cheddar biscuit bites are a quick and easy, yet oh so delicious biscuit recipe your whole family is sure to love!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 24


  • 3 cups (369 g) self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon (4 g) baking powder
  • 1/4 cup (46 g) shortening
  • 1 (16-ounce) package (448 g) breakfast sausage, , browned and drained
  • 1 cup (113 g) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup (184 g) buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) 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.

Recipe Review


  1. Roo says:

    Made these today and they were very easy. I didn’t have enough sausage and was too lazy to go to the shops to get more☺️, so added extra cheese, some chopped spring onion, and a bit of chicken powder to compensate. Very tasty 😋

    Looking forward to trying other variations on this recipe. It seems very versatile.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Roo, I’m so glad you found these biscuit bites so easy to make, too, and that you found a way to make it with the ingredients you had on hand. Thanks!

  2. Joanie says:

    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!

  3. Joan says:

    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. Robyn Stone says:

      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!

    2. Joan says:

      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. Meseidy says:

    I love the reheatability of these little guys. What a tasty treat you made there!

  5. Imogene Nichols says:

    Could you use something else instead of the shortening?

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      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.

  6. The Surprised Gourmet says:

    This does sound delicious and being quick and easy, what more could a person ask for!

  7. Denise says:

    I am wondering if you could bake them in muffin tins with cupcake liners. I think I might try that. Love your recipes!

    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. Robyn Stone says:

      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! 🙂

  9. Angeline says:

    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. Robyn Stone says:

      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

    I can’t wait to make these, Robyn! I know my boys will LOVE them, too!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I hope y’all love them as much as we do, Bridget. They are so easy it almost feels like cheating! 🙂
