Cheddar Sausage Biscuits.

I found a recipe and have been tweaking it for over a week. All that work has paid off because ohmygoodness, I have created something that is easy to make, is relatively inexpensive, tastes amazing, stores well, can be eaten cold or hot, is a great grab and go food aaaaaaand has perfect macros.

Without further ado.
