I'm not good with bread though...I have been known to burn:
To be blunt I never have been able to make anything resembling bread go into my oven and come out edible.
It's always burned...either completely unrecognizable or the bottom is rock hard brown/black.
In fact if you were in my house at dinner time -- I might knock you down in my haste to get back to the bread that I forgot about in the oven.
So imagine my surprise when this combination of cheese, sausage and bread came out of MY OVEN incredibly yummy.
Side note: This recipe sadly only makes 6 scrumptious biscuits...granted my kids were at their grandparents - so Hubby and I were able to split them.
Biscuit Sausage Cheese Balls
Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine 2010
1/2 pound spicy Italian sausage
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream - tad bit more for basting.
1 ounce American or sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large skillet , crumble sausage and cook, stirring often, over medium-high heat until browned., about 5 mintues. Drain and let cool.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in heavy cream and sausage into dry ingredients. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface, press into a disk and cut into 6 even triangles.
Cut cheese into 6 cubes and place 1 in the center of each triangle; roll into a ball. Place the dough balls on a baking sheet, brush with some more cream and bake until golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
