Thread: Sausage biscuits?

    Default Sausage biscuits?

    Just finished reading a novel where the main character had a "sausage
    biscuit" and coffee for breakfast (bought from a local Mom and Pop
    eatery). I've seen many discussions about biscuits and sausage gravy
    here but not that exactly, so I did some googling and it looks like
    they could be biscuits cut in half with a slice of 'sausage patty' in
    between. The pictures thereof reminded me of burgers...

    <http://www.hardees.com/menu/breakfast/sausage-biscuit/>

    However, I also saw a video of Paula Deen making them on the Smithfield
    website

    <http://www.smithfield.com/recipes/recipe/sausage-biscuits>

    and they sorta looked like doughnuts with a piece of sausage where the
    hole should be when they were done (to me) <laugh>

    So what gives? Are there other 'variations'? Should there be variations?
    Who likes sausage biscuits and/or makes them at home?

    CC,

    That's one way of doing it, if it's only called a sausage biscuit. It can
    include an egg and maybe cheese.

    Biscuits and sausage gravy are an entirely different bit of magic that
    makes you not want to leave the kitchen table.

    I cannot believe you cannot picture a "sausage biscuit." Ever been to
    a fast-food place like Hardee's? It's a round sausage patty in
    between a split baking powder biscuit. (Paula Deen seems to have made
    up her own version which sounds really nasty.).

    I often make them when I make b. powder biscuits - sausage, egg and
    cheese, just plain sausage, or egg and cheese or whatever. (They're
    better than fast-food.) I really like bacon, egg and cheese the best.

    typical here in Carolina is biscuit with a white gravy made of chopped upped
    regular 'breakfast' sausage, you know, sage, black pepper, salt, red pepper.
    Cook up the sausage and using the grease to whip up white pan gravy.

    Pretty much everything made with sausage tastes good, if you ask me.
    Note that "sausage biscuit" is just a piece of sausage on a biscuit,
    plus maybe eggs and/or cheese - you can order it at McDonald's. Sausage
    gravy isn't something this northerner knows anything about except that
    it's something different than a sausage biscuit. I've had sausage as
    part of my dinner the last two days so it's been on my mind.

    By the name Piedmont, I'm assuming you are in the Piedmont Sandhills of NC
    (where I'm originally from).....so you've never been to
    Biscuitville.......they can find more things to stuff in a biscuit for
    breakfast than anyone I've ever seen.

    I'm a lazy cook, seldom make biscuits or gravy either. We will have Mary
    B's frozen biscuits about once a week and I just open up a can of
    Campbell's Sausage gravy to heat and pour over. Both are as good as I
    can make them and breakfast is ready in twenty minutes versus an hour or so.

    When I did make them the biscuits were whole wheat and were just
    biscuits. I would take a pound of good sausage, fresh stuff, not the
    links, break it up, fry it done, drain off the fat, then make a white
    gravy to go in the pan with it. Start to eat it took an hour or more,
    not anymore. <G>

    I didn't watch the video, just saw the picture. I've never seen
    anything quite like that before, but it might be good -- or it might
    be too greasy, just depending on how greasy the sausage is plus the
    shortening in the biscuits.

    The closest thing I've seen is yeasted bread dough wrapped around a
    piece of sausage link and baked. Those are really good. (I should
    make some while the weather is still cold and dreary) Cooked
    extra-hot Little Sizzlers breakfast links work well.

    It sounds like McDonald's to me. I (personally) don't like sausage
    biscuits, but I do like sausage muffins and did made them at home
    occasionally when the kids were still kids.

    1. Take commercial sausage, such as Jimmy Dean's hot, and make into
    extra wide (they shrink when cooked), very-very thin patties... 1/4
    inch or so thick.
    2. Fry until cooked through
    3. Top with yellow cheese (I use mild cheddar but a slice of American
    will do) and allow to melt.
    4. Place between 2 slices of lightly toasted American style "English"
    muffins such as Thomas' (but pre-sliced generic is fine too)
    5. Eat with gusto

    The variation is to add a hard cooked egg to it.

    When I make it, I fry out the loose sausage, and add flour while
    browning it, and keeping on making the pieces smaller til crumbled.
    When the flour & sausage is browned well, add milk to well above the
    sausage level. I season with some cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne
    pepper(just a little to give a Little heat). Taste and salt as
    necessary. Let it boil enough to thicken, don't leave it, you know how
    milk boils over easily. Keep wisking and/or scraping the whole time
    and getting the good stuff off the bottom of pan. I use an iron
    skillet I can scrape vigorously. Then serve over halved biscuits.
    Even better the next day!! I didn't read anyone elses recipe, so hope
    this isn't duplicated. This is my own version after tasting it once.

    Oh, I just read the Paula Deen recipe, that sounds nasty. I copied
    this from a
    southern restaurants version in SC. Had to have it cuz my SIL sweetie
    wanted it, and
    I'd never had or seen it. Now it's for special occasions. And
    sometimes for lazy
    dinners!! Nan

    That's "biscuits 'n gravy," not "sausage biscuits." Very tasty.
