  • 1 cup 125 g all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup 75 g butter, cold
  • 1 cup sourdough starter or buttermilk
  • 1 8 ounce 250 g sausage, I use fully cooked Mennonite sausage; optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 F.
  2. Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Cut the butter into the flour using a pastry cutter, fork or even by hand until mixture resembles wet sand. Stir in as much sourdough starter as needed to form a soft dough. Turn out dough onto a floured surface and knead over a couple of times.
  3. For regular biscuits, flatten the dough and cut into 10-12 biscuits (using a knife or biscuit cutter).
  4. For sausage biscuits, flatten and shape the dough into a long rectangle (as long as the sausage). Roll sausage up in biscuit dough; seam side down. Cut into 10-12 slices.
  5. Place [sausage] biscuits on a lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
