This recipe is Molly’s breakfast version of the meatball-stuffed biscuits her mom made for dinner growing up. Her mom would use frozen meatballs, store-bought biscuits and store-bought red sauce…so this is her slightly fresher take with homemade sausage. She encapsulates the meatball like a dumpling, adds in some sliced cheese, bakes it, cooks up an egg and serves it all together with maple syrup for dunking — yum!



Biscuits and Assembly:


  1. For the sausage: In a large mixing bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and milk and let sit for 5 minutes. Mix in the egg and then add the pork or chicken, flattening out the meat in the bottom of the bowl. Sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar, salt, fennel, sage, thyme, crushed red pepper, onion powder, rosemary and nutmeg. Using your hands, quickly mix to combine; don't over mix. Form into 16 balls, each about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
  2. Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the meatballs in batches, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Add more oil to the pan if it ever seems dry (this shouldn't happen if you're using pork, but it may happen with chicken). Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. For the biscuits and assembly: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan with vegetable oil cooking spray.
  4. Flatten each biscuit with your palm, add 1/2 slice of cheese and top with a sausage ball. Pinch the edges of the dough around each sausage ball to seal. Place seam-side down in the prepared pan. Bake until golden, about 35 minutes.
  5. Brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with a couple pinches of flaky salt. Let cool slightly. Serve them on their own or with a runny, over-easy or over-hard egg. Serve with ketchup, maple syrup and whatever your breakfast accessory of choice is.
