Jalapeño Cheddar Sausage Biscuits

south dakota cowgirl, cooking with the cowgirl, biscuits, jalapenosI had a piece of heaven when I was in Texas the first of November. Heaven came in the form of a muffin. A muffin with sausage, cheddar cheese, herbs and jalapeno peppers. And the world said, Amen.

I’m not a huge muffin fan, so I figured I could make the same thing with a biscuit – which I do love.

Call me a cheater if you want to, but Bisquick is my go-to for biscuits. Saves time so don’t judge, okay?

Jalapeño Cheddar Biscuits
Heaven in the form of a biscuit. A little taste of the South.

  1. Don't Judge, Okay?
  2. 1 c grated cheddar cheese (2-3 tablespoons reserved for garnish)
  3. ¼- ½ c finely diced jalapeño peppers. I used pickled (Marzetti brand b/c they’re the best); keep the juice or don’t (even add a tablespoon extra if you want); I think the extra juice adds additional flavor/heat. I chopped mine in a mini-food processor, but you can do it by hand if you wish.
  4. 2-3 diced jalapeños for garnish
  5. 2 tbsp dried parsley
  6. 4 tbsp melted butter
  7. 2-3 tbsp fresh diced chive/green onion (optional)
  8. 4 oz spicy ground sausage. I used Jimmy Dean because I think it’s the best.
  9. milk
  10. bisquick
  1. Cook the sausage, until no more pink shows. Remove from heat; drain fat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine 2 ½ c bisquick mix, with just under 1 c milk, add the grated cheese, and butter and stir until combined. Add sausage and jalapeños, stir until combined. Add parsley and other herbs if desired.
  3. Place onto a nonstick baking sheet (or ceramic stone), garnish with a little extra cheddar cheese and a jalapeno on top. Place into a 450 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until desired doneness is reached. Makes 12.
  1. Would be amazing with goat cheese instead of cheddar!

They’re lovely on their own, or served with eggs and black beans. And truthfully I think they’d be great with crumbled goat cheese in them too, but then I think goat cheese goes with everything!

What's on your mind?

  1. OMG…those look amazing. My husband is in Dallas right now for business and pretty much stuck in his hotel but he is raving about the Texas food (even in the hotel!) Maybe I’ll make him some of these when he gets back

    BTW, I’m hosting a giveaway this week for a kids outfit from this site called bow tie kids. They donate a portion of sales to charity so I said I’d help. If you could just leave a comment, it would be great!
