* Hickory Smoked Link Sausage, cut in 1/4" slices
* 1 can refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits per can)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 20 muffin tin cups with vegetable oil cooking spray. Remove the biscuits from the package and separate each one into round halves. Place the halves into the muffin cups. Press 1 slice of smoked sausage into each biscuit, pressing down so that the biscuit comes up around the edges of the sausage. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove the biscuits from the tins and place on a serving platter. Add a spoonful of marmalade or preserves on top!
For those of you not familiar with Mayhaw jelly...
Mayhaws are native to the swamps and lowlands of the Gulf Coast states in the US. They have been collected from wild trees by deep-southerners since antebellum times, and are rarely cultivated in orchards still today.
