I can't take credit for this idea. I was inspired! I saw I Just Like To Cook make Sausage Link Egg & Cheese Biscuit Melts on a YouTube video. I knew immediately I just had to try it on a smaller scale. So I used my families' Drop Biscuit recipe and some Lit'l Smokies sausages to make mini versions of Rod's breakfast treat. It worked great! So great I had to post right away. So excuse my iPhone photography and fingers in the photos. I will re-post one day with photos showing the steps in between. I just had to get this out there in case you were just waiting for a new breakfast idea. Check out Rod's video and recipe for the he-man size. Or try the mini version I made. You can even use your favorite biscuit recipe too. Heck, probably a can biscuit if you want? Just remember you will need one egg for every two biscuits. I loved the mini smoked sausage. Such a different spin on a sausage egg and cheese biscuit.
Lit'l Smokies Egg and Cheese Drop Biscuits
Makes 2 biscuits
1/2 cup all-purpose flour*
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 tsp. vegetable oil
2-1/2 Tbsp. 2% milk
2 Lit'l Smokies sausages
1 egg, beaten
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp. 2% sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add oil and milk. Stir until just combined. Divide dough in half and spoon on to baking sheet. Press one Lit'l Smokie into each biscuit and bake 10 minutes. Meanwhile cook egg in a pan over low until softly set. Remove biscuits from the oven; top with egg, season with salt and pepper and top with cheese. Return to the oven for 2 more minutes. Serve hot.
*Note: Spoon or sprinkle the flour into the measuring cup and level. Do not pack in the cup.
