Sausage and Biscuits Rolled into one! Great for Game Day snacking, Holiday Breakfasts, or Potlucks. My dad used to make these with canned biscuit dough. As kids, my sisters and I relished them. We called them 'Sausage Cookies'. I have since modified the recipe using a variation of biscuit dough from an old 'Joy of Cooking' cookbook. * a stand mixer makes super quick work of the mixing
- 1 3⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 4 tablespoons softened margarine or 4 tablespoons butter
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1 lb ground sausage
- milk or melted butter
- Measure and mix dry ingredients.
- Using pastry cutter, a fork, or mixer, cut margarine (or butter) into dry mixture. Make a well in the center. Pour in 3/4 cups milk. Stir until dough is free from the sides of the bowl.
- Turn out onto floured counter top or board. Roll dough into a rough rectangle 1/4 inch thick.
- Open ground sausage and spread evenly on top of the dough.
- Roll up jelly-roll style.
- Cut roll into 1/2 inch slices (dough can be refrigerated overnight to ease the slicing if desired).
- Arrange the slices on oiled cookie sheets.
- Brush tops with milk or melted butter to aid browning.
- Bake in 450 degree oven for 12 - 15 minutes.
- Sometimes I mix 1/2 cheese or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder with the dough in this recipe. The uncooked, unsliced roll can be wrapped and frozen for later use. Simply thaw, slice, bake and serve.
