Homemade sausage and egg biscuits with cheddar cheese biscuits and a sweet and spicy sausage. A delicious breakfast sandwich!

Ingredients

Cheddar Biscuits:

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Spicy Maple Sausage:

1 pound ground pork
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh sage
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 large eggs, scrambled

Directions

For the biscuits:
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Stir together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Cube the cold unsalted butter and use your fingers to rub it into the flour mixture until it is in pea-sized pieces.

2) Stir in grated cheddar cheese so it is mixed well. Finally add in buttermilk and stir until just combined.

3) Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and fold it over itself a few times. Try not to overwork the dough. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out large round biscuits. You should get at least 8 and probably closer to 12 biscuits.

4) Move biscuits to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake them at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes until they are golden brown.

For the Sausage:
1) Stir together all ingredients in a bowl. Portion out sausage into 8 even patties (about 2 ounces each).

2) Add patties to a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side until the sausages are well browned.

For the egg:
1) Scramble egg and pour into a nonstick pan or a pan with some oil or butter over medium heat. After about 90 seconds fold the egg over itself a few times so the egg is nice and light and cooked through.

For each sandwich:
Split a biscuit in half and add half of the cooked egg. Then top with sausage and serve while warm!

Storage:
If you want to freeze these, let them cool to room temperature and then wrap them well in foil. Freeze them and then store them in a freezer bag for up to 2-3 months. I prefer to reheat them in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes so the biscuits don’t get soggy.
