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

"I made this with self rising flour and added one cup of freshly grated extra sharp cheddar cheese. It made a dozen regular sized biscuits. My family absolutely loved them!! They are definitely part of the regular rotation now! Next time I'm going to add chives!"
