Ingredients

For the Biscuits:

  • 3 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons of Kosher salt
  • 10 tablespoons of ice cold unsalted butter shredded on a grater
  • ¾ cup of sliced green onions
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 3 eggs

For the Sandwich:

  • 10 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
  • 1 pound of Odom’s Tennessee Pride® Mild Country Sausage cut into 10 slices
  • 2 pounds of pasteurized prepared cheese product cut into 1” chunks
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 2 cans 10 oz each Ro*Tel® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
  • ½ cup of small diced sweet onion
  • sliced green onions for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°
  • Biscuits: In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, shredded ice-cold butter, green onions and salt and then form a well.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs and milk and pour them into the center of the flour well.
  • Use a fork to combine the ingredients.
  • Once combined sprinkle some flour on a clean surface and slightly roll out the dough until it is 1 inches thick, do not over knead.
  • Use a circle cookie cutter to make a circle that is about 2 inches across and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. There should be enough dough to make 10 biscuits.
  • Bake them for 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove and slice in half.
  • Queso: Add the cheese product in chunks, cream cheese, strained RO*TEL and sweet onion to a medium sized pot and cook on low heat until melted and combined. Keep warm.
  • Grill the sausage patties on high heat until grill marks are achieved and the sausages are cooked through. Set aside and keep warm.
  • In a large cast iron skillet on the grill on high heat, melt a 1/3 of the unsalted butter and cook the eggs until the desired amount of doneness is achieved. Repeat the process until all of the eggs are cooked.
  • To Plate: Place a sausage patty down on the bottom part of the biscuit. Add on the egg and top off with 2 ounces of the Queso dip, and the other half of the biscuit. Enjoy!
