Nothing says breakfast like a good muffin… and these Sausage and Cheese Muffins are definitely good. They’re easy to make and so tasty.. perfect with scrambled eggs.
The breakfast pork sausage I used didn’t render much grease… so I sautéed the onions in the little grease there was and added about half a tablespoon of butter from the 4 tablespoons of butter listed.
You can use any cheese you prefer… cheddar gives this a nice strong flavor while Colby Jack gives it a light cheese flavor.
The batter is quite thick… I used a heaping ice cream scoop to scoop the batter into the muffin tin… it made 12 muffins.
So enjoy a terrific weekend breakfast with these muffins!
Recipe: Sausage and Cheese Muffins
All you need:
8 ounces of bulk pork breakfast sausage
½ medium onion, finely diced
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 ¼ cups milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups of flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup shredded colby jack cheese or cheddar cheese
Butter flavored cooking oil spray
All you have to do:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Spray a non stick muffin tin with butter flavored cooking oil spray. Set aside.
In a medium skillet, brown the sausage, breaking it up into small pieces with a spatula. Drain on paper towels.
In the rendered sausage grease, sauté the onion over medium heat. If you don’t have much grease, add about ½ tablespoon of the melted butter to the pan. Cook until onions are soft and translucent. Do not let them brown. Remove from the heat and cool for about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. I use a wire whisk to mix it, it mixes it evenly. Set aside.
In a medium bowl combine the melted butter, milk, and egg.
Add the butter mixture, sausage, sautéed onions and cheese to the flour mixture. Mix well with a spoon.
Spoon into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top of each muffin.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean AND the tops are a light brown.
