Step 1: Ingredients

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
To make Cheesy Sausage Biscuits, you will need:

-2 cups flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/2 cup shortening
-3/4 cup milk
-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-1 package (6-8) Breakfast Sausages
-1 tablespoon cooking oil

Tools and Equipment:
-Large Bowl
-Measuring Cup
-Wooden Spoon
-Cookie Sheet

Step 2: Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the 2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar and salt.

Step 3: Shortening

Once you have stirred together the dry ingredients, measure out 1/2 cup shortening and add that to the bowl. Using the wooden spoon cut the shorting into pea size pieces and stir into the flour mixture.

Step 4: Add the Milk

Once you have stirred in all of the shortening, measure out 3/4 cup milk in the measuring cup and pour it into the bowl. Stir the milk into the flour mixture.

Step 5: Cheese Time!!!

Measure out the 1/2 cup of cheese and pour it into the mixture. Make sure the cheese is spread out, so it is mixed in with all of the dough, not just one part.

Step 6: Shaping the Biscuits

Divide the dough into 8 balls. Grease the cookie sheet and place the biscuits about 2 inches apart from each other. Put the cookie sheet in the oven for 10 minutes

Step 7: Cooking the Sausages

While the biscuits are in the oven, it's time to cook the sausages! Pour 1 tablespoon of cooking oil in a small pan, then place the 8 sausages on top. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, flipping the sausages occasionally so they cook on both sides.

Step 8: Assembling the Sausage Biscuits

Poke a medium sized hole in the middle on each biscuit, then put the sausage through the hole leaving about half of the sausage on each side of the biscuit.

    have you ever tried precooking the sausage and wrapping the dough around the sausage before baking?

    That would work, I know other people have done that before and it has worked.

    I was just wondering if you had tried it. I plan to make these for my boys for breakfast sometime. I thought it might be easier to manipulate the dough rather than make an appropriate sized hole after baking.
