It’s back to school time all over the country and that means busy, hectic mornings for families. I remember those days so well. Always a rush to get out the door to school and work and always a struggle to get something decent on the table for breakfast. Isn’t it nice to have an easy recipe in your arsenal for those days when you want more than a cold bowl of cereal? Something savory and hearty like these Easy Sausage Muffins.
This recipe is so simple with only four ingredients and minimal prep time. They’re very much like the old classic sausage balls but with lots less hands-on time. You can make these on the weekend and store them in the fridge. A quick zap in the microwave and you have a nice, warm, cheese-y muffin full of sausage that will take you right through until lunch.
I was talking to “Miss P” yesterday afternoon about what I was planning to post today and she had a great idea. Bake these in mini-muffin tins and serve them with your game day spread! They’d be great with a little spicy mustard to spread on top and your favorite adult beverage.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan and set aside.
Choose your favorite bulk breakfast sausage for these muffins. Mild, medium, or hot. Whatever your family likes best. Cook the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until no pink color remains. As the sausage cooks, break it up using a potato masher or large fork so that it is crumbly and loose. Drain as much fat as possible from the cooked sausage.
Add the eggs, shredded cheese, cooked drained sausage and baking mix to a medium bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined.
Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
