Sausage, Cheddar and Pickle Platter

This recipe is replica of the Smoked Sausage, Cheese and Pickle Plate at Champy’s Famous Fried Chicken, a restaurant chain found in the South. To make a smaller portion, use half the ingredients listed below. If you want a variety of cheeses, use smoked Gouda and manchego in addition to the cheddar. I also generally use two or three different types of sausage.


  • 2 14-ounce packages of precooked sausage, sliced into bite-size pieces
  • 1 16-ounce block of cheddar cheese, diced into bite-size pieces
  • 1 16-ounce jars pickled cucumbers, cut into bite-size pieces
  • Pickled peppers, to taste


  • Heat oven to 350 F.
  • Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil. Evenly distribute the sausage onto both pans. Place into oven and cook the sausage until the fat renders or per the package instructions.
  • Remove from the oven and evenly distribute the cheese and pickles with the sausage. Serve immediately.
