Ingredients

For the Biscuits:

  • 1-1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix or your favorite biscuit recipe
  • 1/2 cup milk

For the Breakfast Sandwich:

  • 5 Biscuits
  • 1 tube (16 ounces) Jimmy Dean Sage sausage
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese Cut 10 fairly thick pieces (approximately 3/4 or more of the package).
  • 5 tablespoons raspberry jam or jelly
  • 5 tablespoons butter

Instructions

For the Biscuits:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  
  • In a medium size bowl, add the Bisquick mix and milk.  Stir until a dough forms. 
  • On a large cutting board, sprinkle a little Bisquick baking mix.  
  • Lay the dough mixture on the cutting board and knead the dough 10 times.  With a rolling pin, roll the dough until it's about 1-inch thick.
  • Using a biscuit cutter (or the rim of a drinking glass) cut 5 circles out of the biscuit dough. 
  • There may be 3 or 4 biscuits out of the first cut. Then reroll the scraps and cut the remaining 1 or 2 circles out of the dough.  
  • Place the biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven until the biscuits start to turn a golden color (about 7 to 9 minutes).  
  • Let the biscuits cool before slicing them in half horizontally.

For the Breakfast Sandwich:

  • For the Sausage - Shape the sausage into patties; they tend to shrink a bit after cooking so make the patties a little larger than the diameter of the biscuit and as thin as possible (the entire package of sausage should yield 7 patties so there should be 2 extra). 
  • Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add the sausage patties.  Turn the patties over as they cook so that they cook evenly.  
  • Let cook until the patties start to brown and are thoroughly cooked. 
  • After the sausage patties are cooked, transfer them onto a paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess grease.  Set aside for a moment
  • For the Eggs - A microwave egg cooker is a handy way to make eggs in a size that fits well in a biscuit. If you don’t have one of these handy gadgets an option is to make fried eggs and just fold them so they fit in the biscuit.
  • If a microwave egg cooker is used, put the egg cooker on a microwave-safe plate. Then put an egg in each cup and poke holes in the yoke with a fork. 
  • Then add a smidgen of water in each one of the cups with the eggs, and snap the egg cooker shut. 
  • Lay a paper towel over the top of the egg cooker. Cook for 1 minute 38 seconds (time may vary depending on the microwave)
  • Using a small spoon, remove the eggs from the cooker.  Set aside for a moment.
  • Assemble the Sandwich - On each cut-side of the biscuits, spread butter and raspberry jam or jelly. 
  • To the top halves of each biscuit, place a slice of cream cheese over the raspberry jam.  
  • To the bottom half of each biscuit, add another slice of cream cheese, a sausage patty, and an egg.
  • Salt and pepper the egg to taste. 
  • Cover with the top slice of the biscuit and serve while warm.
