Weekends are usually a time for leisurely breakfasts. We like to have coffee, read the paper, and fuel up for busy farm days. We connect at the table after busy weekdays and enjoy each other. One of our favorite breakfasts are these 10 Grain Sausage Cheddar Biscuits. They’re full of whole grains and protein to fill us up and sustain us through active mornings.
These are a drop biscuit because frankly, I don’t have a biscuit hand and tend to overwork the dough when I have to roll it out and cut which makes them tough. These drop biscuits stay tender because there is no danger of overworking and all the milk keeps them moist.
Bob’s Red Mill, one our breakfast month sponsors, make a great 10 grain hot cereal to make whipping these up quick and easy. It’s delicious as a hot cereal but it’s also amazing in many baked goods like these biscuits.
I used Hazelnut milk in these biscuits from our sponsor, Pacific Foods. I choose a nut milk because I like the hint of nuttiness here, it also seems to keep the biscuits a bit lighter than cream.
I generally use a local breakfast sausage but Italian sausage would be great too. In the summer months, I generally toss in a handful of fresh, chopped chives from the garden. Sharp cheddar is particularly nice but use whatever cheese is a favorite in your house.
