Sausage Cheese Biscuits Recipe with Jalapenos

When you are feeding hungry teenage boys you need to learn to serve bread of some sort at every meal. Sure, he gets plenty of meat, veggies, fruits and dairy but the bottomless pit of hunger requires a whole bunch of carbs on a daily basis. Sausage Cheese Biscuits are a huge hit in my house and I am ashamed to say that I usually start with a premade baking mix. I know…totally NOT the healthiest choice to make but my biscuits usually come out as dense as bricks when I start from scratch! However, I think I have figured out my problem and this sausage cheese biscuits recipe from scratch came out light, flaky and delicious!

Sausage Cheese Biscuits from Scratch

So, what have I been doing wrong all these years? I think I have been far to vigorous in my mixing. As I browsed through many biscuit recipes online this weekend, I noticed that they ALL said “Mix only until combined”. I decided to try less mixing for this cheese biscuits recipe and was very pleased with the results.

I will say that the cheese you choose for this biscuit recipe is very important. I always go with the sharpest cheddar I can find and Cabot is one of my favorite brands. As a Cabot Cheese Board member, I get the chance to try out LOTS of Cabot cheese and they have an amazing variety to choose from. I recommend shredding your own cheese whenever you can since I think it really does have much better flavor than the pre bagged stuff. This recipe is based loosely on a Food Network recipe. The original author recommended shaking the buttermilk although I am not sure why! I included that step in my own recipe and it seems to have come out quite tasty.

  1. My grandmother used to make chilaly (it’s in the Fannie Farmer Cookbook – essentially cheese, tomatoes and egg melted together with some other seasonings), served over Ritz crackers. Love it!

  2. These biscuits look amazing! I never think of adding things in like this. I love cheesy anything but homemade Mac and cheese or a really good grilled cheese are hard to beat!

  3. Cheese is an integral part of so many of my favorite recipes that it’s hard to choose a favorite, but I think for letting that lovely cheese shine through, I’d have to say my top pick would be a nice grilled cheese sandwich. Simple but delicious!

  4. I still love macaroni and cheese just as much as I ever did. It takes a lot of self control to not just indulge in that for dinner nightly.

  5. My favorite “cheese” related recipe is loaded potato and chicken casserole. It has baked potato, chicken breast, layers of cheese, and bacon.
