  • 1 lb bulk breakfast sausage
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sharp Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup baking mix recommend: Bisquick


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan and set aside.
  • 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.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, shredded cheese, cooked drained sausage and baking mix. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Fill muffin cups about ¾ full. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.



Some great ways to vary this recipe include:
  • Substitute bacon or ham for the breakfast sausage
  • Use turkey sausage instead of pork sausage
  • Choose mild, medium, or hot sausage according to your preference; or use a sage flavored or maple-flavored sausage
  • Great add-ins are finely diced green onion, jalapeno, or bell pepper; or try about ¾ cup of cooked, very well-drained greens such as spinach or kale
  • For a different flavor profile, try using pepper jack cheese with the addition of jalapenos in the batter
To store: Wrap individual muffins in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for as much as 5 days. For longer storage, wrap well and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To reheat: Reheat refrigerated muffins for up to 60 seconds in the microwave. Frozen muffins should be defrosted overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
Tip: Bake these in mini-muffin tins and serve them with your game day spread! They're great with a little spicy mustard to spread on top and your favorite adult beverage.
