Cheese and Sausage Biscuit Recipe – light and fluffy homemade biscuits full of cheddar cheese and sausage. Great for make ahead breakfasts!

I love a good biscuit recipe.  It is one of my ultimate weaknesses. Seriously? Light, fluffy, buttery biscuits are something I want to eat pretty much every single day. I posted this basic Easy Biscuit Recipe and I think you guys like them as much as I do.

Today I am sharing a special recipe for homemade biscuits.  It is full of chives, cheddar cheese, and breakfast sausage.  They are tender and so good.  Great to make with eggs for breakfast, as a side dish for dinner or turn into a breakfast sandwich!

One of my close blogging friends Mary Younkin came out with a new book!  If you don’t have her first book, The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook, full of quick and easy dinner recipes you need to get a copy.  Sweet Chipotle Chicken Bites are a recipe from that book – ready in 15 minutes!

Her new book is The Weekday Lunches & Breakfast Cookbook. It is full of all sorts of breakfast and easy lunch recipes, that work for dinners too. Plus a couple great desserts thrown in. To say that I love this book is a little bit of an understatement. I have already made 4-5 of the recipes from this book and they were all amazing.  And this easy biscuit recipe is definitely one of my favorites.

I let my son go through the cookbook to mark recipes that he wants to try and I think he marked almost every other page.  Cheesy Green Chile Chicken, Spicy Cajun Cheesesteak Sandwiches, Cheesy Enchilada Pasta and Crispy Green Chile Pork Skillet are just a few of the ones he wants me to make.

I made the Spinach Couscous Salad when we had friends over a couple weeks ago, and everyone asked for the recipe. And the Perfect Every-Time Brownies might be my new favorite. I told you that I loved this book.

These sausage biscuits a drop biscuit recipe. They have cornmeal in them with gives added texture and flavor. So easy to make, you can have them in the oven in just minutes. I like to use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough, so all the biscuits are the same size.

So if you are looking for a make ahead breakfast, something to serve for brunch, or just love biscuits like I do, you have to give this biscuit recipe a try.  And pick up a copy of The Weekday Lunches & Breakfast Cookbook today, you will not be disappointed.
