Handy Sausage Biscuits Recipe

Handy Sausage Biscuits Recipe

These are similar to old-fashioned biscuits made from scratch, but they're even better thanks to the tasty sausage throughout. It's almost impossible to stop eating them. I like to serve these biscuits with an egg dish or soup. -Nancy Parker, Seguin, Texas

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
