sausage biscuit skillet with guinness

AuthorHeather WallaceCategoryDifficultyIntermediate

This year I was on a mission to find a new St.Patrick's day recipe...and what came out of my endeavor was this delicious boozy shepherd's pie type of dish but instead of mashed potatoes on top, I used fluffy homemade buttermilk biscuits! Get your fork ready and don't miss out on making this skillet for Paddy's day...break out that stout!

I stumbled upon the Jelly Toast Blog and was inspired to remake their Sausage Biscuit Skillet with Guinness version but with my own spin. Her photography of the dish was so well done and it had my mouth watering so I just couldn't resist making a version of it myself! A few tweaks here and there and it came out amazing!

I love that it's a one-pot dish!
