Sausage Biscuit Bites

I was hoping to post these delicious delights yesterday because they would be perfect for a gameday Saturday!  However, my husband and I are celebrating our birthdays (which are only 4 days apart) by spending the weekend in Auburn, the Loveliest Village on the Plains.  So yesterday was a little crazy with travelling and tailgating and hanging out with old friends.  It has been a really awesome weekend (even if my team did get completely blown out because this is the worst season we’ve had in my entire lifetime).

So, I’m sorry I didn’t post these yesterday, but these sausage biscuit bites are good any day of the week!  These would make great party food because it’s a clean finger food and perfect for individual servings.  It’s also a delicious and easy breakfast!  You could make a big batch on the weekend and then have a quick, on-the-go breakfast for work each day!

I love how easy these were.  Using the pre-made biscuit dough made things super quick.  It took only a couple of minutes to prepare and then 10 minutes to bake.  And it seems they were gone in minutes too!

Sausage Biscuit Bites

  1. Made these on a hectic Sunday morning, when we were getting ready for Sunday School and Tara and Scott and their twins were getting ready to head back to Ohio. What a hit! Super easy, super quick and super delicious! One small complaint: they overflowed the mini-muffin tins and I did have some spillage in the bottom of the oven Next time, I’ll use a bigger tin … and there will DEFINITELY be a next time!!!

    • Oh no I hate that they spilled out of the muffin tin! The original recipe calls for mini, but they fit perfectly in my regular size pan I think I’ll change the recipe to reflect that so others don’t have the same experience! Glad you enjoyed them, though!

        Feeling kinda silly, but my husband came up with an easy, perfect solution to the “spillage” problem Just put the mini-muffin pan on a cookie sheet.! Why didn’t I think of that earlier?

        We made them for our Sunday School class on Sunday and they were a big, big hit!


        Hi Lindsay, The bigger pan should take care of the problem! They were delicious … but then, everything that I’ve cooked from Normal Cooking has been! I think it’s funny that I (your mom’s older cousin) is using your recipes, but the truth is that we were really in a rut, eating the same “tried and true” things over and over. It’s been fun to try new things, but still have them be “real people ” food that my meat-and-potatoes guy will try He’s not really into to the hummus and tofu kind of thing! I love Normal Cooking!

  2. Rene, thank you so much for your sweet comment! I’m so glad that you’ve enjoyed recipes from my blog! It’s nice to know that people are getting some benefit from it! Comments like yours make me feel better about the time I spend working on the blog. 🙂

  3. I must make these….how do you take them to Sunday School? Don’t they get cold? Love the idea that it could be a “make-ahead”. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Have you ever tried these with Italian Sausage and Mozzarella? Just wondering if there were any variations to the recipe? I am thinking about making them as an appetizer for a party.

  5. I am so excited to have “stumbled” upon your blog! I can’t wait to make these for my church’s Easter brunch And I think the idea of making variations is a great way to go from breakfast to snack or sppetizer. I am a slow cook So I am thrilled to have be able to use recipes that are quick AND delicious!

      • i did a test run this morning. Even my daughter that doesn’t like sausage tried them and was thrilled! The only change i would make is to either cook them another 2 mintues (it did not burn the biscuits); or make the sausage balls smaller My can of biscuits now comes in a quantity of 8. So when I initially removed them from the oven, the sausage was not totally done Again, another 2 minutes tacked on solved that problem Thank you for making me look like I knew what I was doing!! 🙂

  6. I cut each of the layers in half, and made smaller sausage balls, using the mini muffin tins. Voila! No spillage AND more sausage biscuit bites! Loving your recipes. As a single foster mom of 3 children under 2 years old…..I am always looking for simple, yet healthy and delicious….not to mention…something a kiddo will eat! So, thank you!

      Good idea, Jennifer! I love anything “mini” so thank you for the suggestion! Also, I’m so glad my recipes can be helpful to a busy woman like yourself! I really admire your willingness to foster children and take good care of them. Thanks for all you do for the orphaned and vulnerable children in your community 🙂

      Glad you liked them! I’ve actually never frozen these before so I’m not really sure the best method for reheating. Let us know what you try and how well it works!

      • You could assemble the sausage balls and freeze them. Rolling the sausage dough is the time consuming part. I make a HUGE batch of sausage balls at the beginning of football season (WAR EAGLE!!!) so all I have to do is grab a bag the morning of the game and throw them in the oven. Helpful hint: Assemble sausage balls and lay a single layer on a cookie sheet and stick in the freeze for about 30 mins. Then put in freezer bags so they will not stick to each other.

        I read the previous question about how to keep them warm at Sunday School? I immediately thought, they must not tailgate. I have tons of the hot/cold packs. In my family, we give each other those in our stockings at Christmas. Big Auburn Family!

          War Eagle! I love your idea of freezing a bunch at the beginning of football season and just heating them before the game. Thanks for the tips!

      Hmmmm….puff pastry will definitely have a much lighter texture than these biscuits, but it still seems like it would be good! So to answer your question…I’m not sure if it would work, but it seems like a smart substitution. If you try it with puff pastry, please let us know how it turns out!

      That’s how long I cooked them, and they turned out great! Obviously not all ovens are the same though, so it’s best to keep an eye on them and test for doneness.
