OUT OF THIS WORLD DELICIOUS!! Incredible flavor! Quick and easy! Great fix-ahead item for busy people. Freeze, then microwave. Pretty muffin cup to serve overnight guests for breakfast!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 1/4 ounce) Pillsbury Grands refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (5 to a can)
  • 12 lb sausage
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 13 cup salsa (mild or hot)
  • 12 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. Fry sausage and crumble.
  2. Generously spray vegetable oil on a muffin tin. Press biscuits into 5 holes to form a cup with edges extending out of top.
  3. Evenly divide crumbled sausage to each biscuit-formed cup. Beat egg with milk. Spoon 1 tablespoon of egg mixture over sausage. Add 1 tablespoon of salsa onto sausage. Top each with shredded cheese. To prevent any spills, place muffin tin on top of a cookie sheet pan while baking.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 17 minutes or until done.
  5. Note: Can be easily doubled. Purchase another 10.2 oz can of 5 biscuits. (The larger size only has 8 biscuits per can.) For best results use Grands size biscuits only.

I found these a little lack luster. Cooking time off as well. Need extra time. With some tweaking could possibly be better.

I'm not going to leave any stars because in all fairness I didn't follow the recipe, exactly. I didn't have the ingredients required so subbed with what I had. Here's what I did... I used the Grand Biscuits and topped them with eggs and cheese and baked just like the recipe instructions . They were delicious prepared as the recipe instructed! Then I made a cream gravy with some leftover grilled kielbasa sausage I had and poured that over the biscuits. It was a great and easy recipe but I took so many liberties with the ingredients and cooking instructions I can't review this great recipe as posted. I TOTALLY LOVED IT THOUGH!!!
