Ingredients

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
*
teaspoon cayenne pepper
*
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
cut into 1/2-inch pieces
8 ounces breakfast sausage
bulk
*
4 ounces cheddar cheese, very old, sharp
1 cup grated
¾ cup buttermilk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a food processor, pulse together the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne until combined.

  2. Add the butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, about ½ dozen to one dozen times. Add the sausage and cheddar cheese and pulse until combined, about ½ dozen pulses. Transfer mixture to bowl and stir in the buttermilk until combined.

  3. Working with wet hands, roll 1 tablespoon dough at a time into 1¼-inch balls and place, evenly spaced, on the baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through baking. Transfer baking sheet to wire rack and let balls cool for 5 minutes.

Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauces. We like to serve these with Outback Blooming Onion Spicy Dipping Sauce
