1Scramble sausage to almost done stage..but not browned. This helps the sausage to stay soft in the biscuit and it will cook done while baking.
2Drain the sausage and let it cool for a few minutes
3In a large bowl mix together baking mix and cheese gently.
4Gently stir in drained sausage
5Pour in buttermilk and stir together until no dry mix shows
6Dump mixture out on a floured surface. It will be very sticky.
7Flatten out mixture to about 3/4 inch thick (this can be done will well floured hands)
8Cut biscuits thick with a biscuit cutter. Or you can roll and pat out by hand.
9Place dough on a well greased sheet pan. Or you can oil up a skillet and bake them. This gives an extra nice crunch to the bottom of the biscuits.
10Brush tops with butter or the dripping from the sausage (which adds extra flavor!!)
11Bake on 425 for 17-20 minutes
