Ingredients

1
package (1 lb) bulk pork sausage
4
medium cooking apples, coarsely chopped (4 cups)
1
large onion, chopped (1 cup)
6
eggs
1/2
teaspoon salt
2 1/4
cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
2
teaspoons sugar
3/4
teaspoon baking soda
1
teaspoon salt
6
tablespoons firm butter or margarine, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 1/2
cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 oz)
2
medium green onions, finely chopped (2 tablespoons)
1
cup buttermilk
  • 1 Heat oven to 425ºF. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray or grease with shortening. In 12-inch skillet, cook sausage, apples and onion over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sausage is no longer pink; drain if necessary. Spoon into baking dish.
  • 2 In medium bowl, beat eggs and 1/2 teaspoon salt with wire whisk or fork until well mixed. Pour eggs over sausage mixture.
  • 3 In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese and green onions. Add buttermilk; stir just until combined. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls evenly onto sausage mixture.
  • 4 Bake uncovered 20 to 30 minutes or until biscuits are deep golden brown and done in the middle. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
