Equipment

  • Large Bowl, Baking Sheet, Frying Pan

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Buttermilk
  • 2 Cups Self-Rising Flour
  • 1 Dollop Crisco a dollop approximately the size of a large egg
  • 1.5 Lbs Rizer's Loose Sausage

Instructions

Biscuits

  • Start off with a medium sized bowl that can contain all of the ingredients (1 cup Buttermilk, 2 cups Self-Rising flour, 1 dollop Crisco)  with wiggle room. 
  • Add 2 cups of Self-Rising flour to the bowl and create a crater in the middle of the flour.
  • Cut in the Crisco (amount of Crisco is approximately the size of a large egg). Make sure to keep the crater in the center.
  •  In 1/4 cup increments, add buttermilk to the crater, stirring the milk into the flour/Crisco mixture.
  • Once you have added all of the buttermilk in and combined, the dough is complete. Set dough onto a well floured surface. Knead dough until soft and form into a ball (this will make it easier to roll or pat out).
  • Pat out (or roll, if you prefer) dough to the thickness you would like. For ours, we use approximately a 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Using a round cookie cutter, cut out dough. (Tip: If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, a floured top of a juice cup will work as well.)
  • Don’t throw away the scraps from your first cut out! Just roll those scraps into another ball, pat out, and continue until you are out of dough.
  • Once you have all of your dough used up and your biscuits are cut out, place them on a baking sheet (butter spray, parchment paper, or baking mats will keep them from adhering)
  • Bake them in the oven for approximately 10 minutes at 450 degrees or until golden brown. Let cool before handling.

Sausage

  • While the biscuits are in the oven, head on over to your stove top and place a frying pan on a burner.
  • Form Rizer’s sausage into small balls and place on frying pan.
  • Flatten sausage balls to form patties. Be careful not to over fill the pan with too many pieces. A normal pan will hold about 5 or 6 sausage patties.
  • Turn frying pan on to Medium/High heat to begin cooking. While the sausage is cooking, be careful! The grease may pop and it will be hot. Use caution.
  • The sausage will need to cook approximately 7 minutes on each side.
  • Using a spatula, flip the sausage to cook on the other side. When completely cooked, the sausage should be a crispy brown color.
  • Once the sausage patty has completely cooked, using a spatula, take it from the frying pan and place it on a paper towel to cool. The paper towel will absorb any excess grease from the sausage patty.  

Creating the Sausage Biscuit

  • Grab a biscuit and cut into halves. Place sausage patty in between two biscuit halves, place on plate, and enjoy!
