McDonalds Sausage Biscuit is a way to “Get that good morning taste of a fresh-baked biscuit and sizzly sausage hot off the griddle.” http://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en/food/product_nutrition.breakfast.268.sausage-biscuit-regular-size-biscuit.html
I have loved biscuits my whole life, especially being a southern girl. Though they usually came from the can, I really enjoyed them when they were paired with sausage, gravy, chicken, or cheese. Why should I have to forfeit that just because I chose a lifestyle to increase my vegetable intake? I don’t. I can even do it at 220 calories compared to 430 calories at McDonalds. Which I love because my point of going on a plant based diet was to take in less nutritious-less calories.
Vegan Sausage Biscuit Recipe
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons vegan butter
1/3 – 1/2 cup water
4 serving of Lightlife Gimme Lean Ground Sausage Style Veggie Protein
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix together all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
Use a fork to cut in vegan butter until a crumbly texture forms.
Stir in just enough water until a moist ball of dough forms.
Dust a piece of parchment paper with flour. Place the dough ball on top of it and gently press the dough out to about an inch thick with your fingertips.
Use a knife to form 4 round biscuits.
Place the biscuits on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. You can reuse the same sheet of paper.
Bake the biscuits for 12 – 15. They are done when they are golden brown and risen.
Heat a skillet to medium high heat and lightly spray with cooking spray.
Press servings of Gimme Lean Sausage (about 2 ounces each) into a round flat patties.
Place them in the skillet for about 5 minutes on each side until hot and crispy on the outside.
Cut biscuits in half and place cooked sausage patties between the steamy buns.
