Chourico & Cheddar Biscuits

Everybody should have a go-to biscuit recipe.

Biscuits can be a carrier for all the breakfast goodies you want – eggs, cheese, sausage, bacon, jam, butter, gravy, whipped cream, fruit, etc. Soooo having a go-to recipe means you don’t have to think too hard about the biscuit and you can get creative and wild with the filling!

Chourico & Cheddar Biscuits

In this case, I got creative with the dough itself by adding chourico sausage and cheddar cheese!

Here’s the recipe:

2 links chourico, removed from casing & cooked (we used Wishbone Heritage Farms chourico)

2 cups of flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups shortening

1 cup milk

2 cups of cheddar cheese, grated

Heat oven to 450°F.

Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening with a fork. Create a well in the center and pour the milk into it, stir only until the flour is moistened then mix in the chourico and cheddar! Dollop spoonfuls onto a greased or parchment paper covered pan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes – until edges are beginning to crisp up and become golden. Remove and serve warm with butter or pickles and slaw!
