Monday’s Muffin: Sausage and Cheese Muffins

by kitchenarian on April 4, 2011

I was a bit worried about this one. I wanted to create a healthier muffin with sausage, eggs and cheese – an egg casserole in muffin form, so I went looking for a recipe, but I couldn’t find what I was looking for.

My idea of home cooked foods does not include opening a can of soup. Don’t judge me, but I stay away from the canned soup recipes. I kept seeing this recipe with a can of cheddar cheese soup in it.  I passed on that one, then I saw a recipe with 12 eggs in it – I kept on looking. Finally I found something close, but knew that I would have to make some changes. I don’t mind adjusting recipes; I do it almost daily, but this was really more like recipe development, something I don’t necessarily feel qualified to do. But anyway, I jumped in and gave it my best shot.

When I put the batter in the muffins cups, it was very loose and soupy; I was concerned. About twenty minutes into the cooking time, it started smelling good; I was breathing a little easier. I took a peek and it was starting to look like muffins; I was trying to be patient, but was still concerned that they would never come out of the pan. I checked on the muffins after  about 30 minutes, and they were golden brown. I decided they were done and removed them from the oven and they popped right out of the pan. I was so happy!

These were so delicious; they were almost gone in a matter of minutes – so they passed the taste test with my family!  These are best right out of the oven.  If you want to make them for breakfast, cook the sausage the night before and then just throw the ingredients together quickly in the morning.


½ pound ground pork sausage, cooked & drained
1 cup Bisquick
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (plus extra for sprinkling on top)
2 large. eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup whole milk
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the muffin cups of a standard muffin pan generously. Cook sausage and drain on paper towels. When cooled, put in a large bowl and add Bisquick, sour cream and cheddar cheese. In a small bowl, beat eggs and add milk. Pour into sausage mix and mix completely; don’t over stir. Salt and pepper to your liking.  Pour evenly into muffin cups and bake for 30 – 40 minutes until cooked thoroughly. Take out of muffin cups immediately. Let cool and then refrigerate what you don’t eat immediately.

What a quick and easy breakfast! I’ll have to remember this next time. I had yogurt this morning and it was nowhere near as satisfying as these muffins look.

Congrats on a successful trial. I sometimes get anxious when improvising on baking recipes. You did great and I would have inhaled these right out of the oven. I might have dipped them in maple syrup, too. YUM!

These look great!

Wow! What a great addition to a Sunday brunch! Love the idea of prepping the sausage the night before … much easier! Good old Bisquick!

I really like this breakfast muffin! Eggs, sausage and muffin all rolled into one! Perfect.

Im with you on the premade and canned ingredients when reading recipes. Nothing makes me turn pages or close windows faster (unless its labeled ‘quick’, ‘fast’ or ‘easy’). Im glad you didn’t go for the 12 egg option either – mainly because Im not a fan of eggs. These muffins look great though. I have got to try them!

They look fluffy and yummy! and I bet they are nutritious and a perfect breakfast for a busy day!

My boyfriend would seriously go insane over these. Once he ate TWO breakfast egg/sausage gravy/bacon/cheese/heart attack sandwiches from Sonic– these would seriously make his life complete 🙂

Love this! Great idea for a muffin, especially for those of us with a savory tooth rather than a sweet tooth. They look great.

I never think to do a savory muffin…I fear my brain is hardwired to go to the sweet side of the fence. 🙂 My husband would adore this batch.

Tried them over the weekend…so yummy!! But had trouble getting them out of the pan…I used regular cooking spray, guess that wasn’t enough?


Betsy March 13, 2013 at 7:46 pm

Making this for the second time this week!! They are great and so handy for busy mornings.


Melanie September 22, 2013 at 9:49 am

These are delicious! I quadrupled the recipe so we’d have some in our freezer for the next week.
