These bites of delight are a real crowd-pleaser and are perfect for game day or pre-brunch snacking!

Pick your sausage of choice and wrap them up with this biscuit recipe:

2 cups flour

4 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 heaping tablespoon Chimayo Blend

2 1/2 tablespoons shortening

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 cup grated cheese

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Sift the dry ingredients together. In a mixing bowl, blend the shortening into the flour. make a well in the center. Into this pour all the milk at once. Stir only until all the flour is moistened and add the onion and cheese.

On a heavily floured surface roll out the dough, it will be sticky. I did half at a time, putting the unused half in the fridge. Cut rolled out dough into strips and wrap around your sausages. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve warm with Ranch Dip and homemade mustard!

Happy snacking!
