Chicken Sausage and Cheddar Biscuits – breakfast to go!

I love breakfast. During the week, if I don't have something ready to grab as I go out the door, I will stop on the way to work and pick up something. It’s definitely healthier to make something myself. I especially like sausage and cheese biscuits. The Bilinski's Kale Balsamic Chicken Sausage are a perfect substitute for my regular sausage. I can heat one in the microwave and hit the road, breakfast in hand. On the off chance I have a few extra minutes, a fried egg would make this a great breakfast sandwich.

Chicken Sausage and Cheddar Biscuits - breakfast to go!

Adapted from Brown Eyed Baker Sausage-Cheddar Biscuits

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes (1 stick)
8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 pound Bilinski's Kale Balsamic Chicken Sausage, chopped
1 cup buttermilk
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted - to brush top of biscuits

Preheat oven to 425°F.

In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix. Add the cubed butter and use a pastry cutter to work the butter into the flour mix. Add the cheese and sausage to the bowl and mix to combine. Add the buttermilk and use your hands to bring dough to a ball. If mixture is a little dry, add a little more buttermilk (I added about 1/4 cup more to my dough.) Roll out dough on flour covered cutting board. Roll so that dough is about 3/4-inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits and move to a parchment-covered cookie sheet for baking. Space about 2 inches apart and brush tops with melted butter. Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Enjoy your breakfast for the road!
