  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, frozen

  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk

  • 3/4 heavy whipping cream

  • 1 (16 ounce) package Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until browned, about 5-8 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks. Drain excess fat; transfer sausage to a paper towel-lined plate.

  3. In a large bowl, combine sausage, flour, cheese, green onion, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and pepper.

  4. Grate butter using the large holes of a box grater. Stir into the flour mixture.

  5. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk and heavy whipping cream.

  6. Add buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and stir using a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Using a sharp knife, cut out 12 squares. Place biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet; place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

  7. Remove biscuits from a freezer. Place into oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.

  8. Serve warm.
