Add the sausage to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and crumble the sausage until cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat, drain the excess grease, and set aside to cool completely.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sour cream and eggs. Whisk in the melted butter until well combined. Stir in the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt until just combined. Then stir in the sausage, cheese, and chives until combined.
Drop the biscuit batter onto the prepared baking sheet to form 12 large (or 18 medium) biscuits.
Bake the biscuits at 400 degrees F for 24 to 26 minutes (or 14 to 16 minutes for the medium sized biscuits), or until lightly browned.
