These are a perfect side dish to your favorite meal. This sausage and cheese biscuit recipe is super simple and doesn’t require yeast, kneading or rising time.

What Ingredients do I need to make these Sausage and Cheese Biscuits?

  • Self-rising flour -I use Gold Medal brand
  • Plain nonfat Greek yogurt -I use Fage or Trader Joe’s
  • Two eggs-divided
  • Jimmy Dean fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles– I like to use Jimmy Dean fully cooked turkey crumbles. They are fully cooked and don’t require cooking or crumbling-another reason is a 3/4 cup is only 3 Smartpoints! You can find this next to the bacon in the refrigerated area at Walmart. If you can’t find it you can always use any brand of cooked turkey sausage and then crumble it yourself. You’ll use 3/4 cup or about 4 oz. 
  • Light cheese -I use Trader Joe’s lite 3 cheese blend or Velveeta Shreds

 

How do I make these Sausage and Cheese Biscuits?

In a mixing bowl, combine flour and Greek yogurt.

Stir until combined.

 

Using a spatula stir in 1 egg and mix until all ingredients have been incorporated.

Fold in sausage crumbles and cheese. 

Using a spoon, scoop dough and drop dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Repeat steps until 12 biscuits are formed.

Cook for 15-18 minutes or until biscuits are lightly brown. 

Serving: Makes 12 drop biscuits

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup self-rising flour -I use Gold Medal brand
  • 3/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt -I use Fage or Trader Joe’s
  • 2 eggs, divided
  • 3/4 cup Jimmy Dean fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles
  • 1/2 cup light cheese -I use Trader Joe’s lite 3 cheese blend or Velveeta Shreds

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour and Greek yogurt. Stir until combined.
  3. Using a spatula stir in 1 whole egg and mix until all ingredients have been incorporated.
  4. Fold in sausage crumbles and cheese. 
  5. Using a spoon, scoop dough and drop dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat steps until 12 biscuits are formed.
  6. In a small bowl, beat the other whole egg with 1 Tbsp water to make egg wash. Using a basting brush, brush the tops of the biscuits with egg wash. The egg wash helps make the tops of the biscuits lightly brown. 
  7. Cook for 15-18 minutes or until biscuits are lightly brown. 

Serving: Makes 12 drop biscuits

    Hi really looking forward to making these! A quick questions about freezing these do they freeze well or not really?

    Hi Vanessa,

    Yes, these do freeze well. They can be stored in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month. Just thaw them overnight in the fridge when ready to reheat.

    Thank you!

    LOVED this recipe. Leftovers are great warmed in the microwave. I even split one of the leftover biscuits in half and cooked an egg to put in the middle to make a breakfast sandwich. I had never tried the turkey sausage crumbles, but they were great in this recipe!
