Sausage Muffins

Easy Sausage Muffins – tasty sausage muffins with eggs and cheddar cheese. Excellent breakfast to go for those busy mornings.

It’s back to school across the country, which means busy mornings for families. I remember those days very well. I was always in a hurry to get out for school and work, and I always had trouble putting 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 bowl of cold cereal? Something tasty and hearty like these Easy Sausage Muffins.

This recipe is so simple with only four ingredients and minimal preparation time. They look a lot like the old classic sausage balls, but with much less preparation time. You can prepare them on the weekend and store them in the refrigerator. A little trip to the microwave and you get a nice hot cheese muffin filled with sausages that will accompany you until lunch.

Yesterday afternoon I talked to “Miss P” about what I was going to post today and she had a great idea. Bake them in mini muffins and serve them with your game day spread! They would be perfect with a little spicy mustard spread on top and your favourite adult drink.


1 lb. bulk sausage

4 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup strong cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup baking mix (recommended: Bisquick)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.

Bake the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until no pink color remains. While the sausage is cooking, break it with a potato masher or a large fork so that it is crumbly and loose. Drain as much fat as possible from the cooked sausage.

Add the eggs, grated cheese, drained cooked sausage and cooking mixture to a medium bowl. Stir until well blended.

Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake for about 20 minutes or until top is golden brown.
