Sausage Puffs

 A local restaurant serves what they call, "Sausage Poofs" They are very popular with their customers, including me. They have been ask for the recipe countless times but will not share it. I have tried to recreate the recipe and although is doesn't taste exactly like there's, it is close.

Sausage Puffs
1-(16-oz.) roll mild sausage 
2 tablespoon butter
1-(8-oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (7.5 oz.) cans buttermilk biscuits

~Preheat oven to 450 degrees (425 degrees if you are baking on dark non-stick baking sheets). 
~In a medium skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, finely breaking up sausage as it cooks.
~Drain off any grease. Add butter and mix well. Set aside.
~In a medium bowl, combine warm sausage and cream cheese, mix well.
Open can of biscuits and working with one biscuit at a time, flatting biscuit on a clean surface, such as a plate, until about 3-1/2 to 4 inches in diameter. 
                Place a tablespoonful of the sausage filling, in the center of the each flattened biscuit. 

Take right side and left side of flattened biscuit, pinch together in the center, then repeat with the top and bottom of the biscuit and the areas in between until filling is well sealed inside the biscuit. Place filled biscuits pinched side down on lightly greased baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart.

Bake at 450 degrees(425 degrees if you are baking on dark non-stick baking sheets) for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. These are best served warm. A great on-the-go breakfast. 
Yield: 40 Sausage Puffs.
