Sausage Breakfast Muffins Recipe

I can never seem to get out of bed with enough time to make breakfast. My solution is to make these muffins ahead of time and pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds just before heading out the door. —Sara Sanders, Fountain City, Indiana

MY REVIEW

Hi, I'm the Sara from the recipe and I want to thank you for your reviews! I should point out that I did not mean to put Italian sausage - you can use any kind you want. I absentmindedly wrote it down because that is what I had on hand the last time I made the muffins. I want to try using maple sausage like Evansmom suggested!

This is a great recipe for quick on the go breakfast during the week. I make it with pepperjack and cheddar cheese. Super easy to make ahead and reheat!

Awsome! We made this with maple sausage instead of italian. Came out perfect & I made extra & bagged in the fridge so my husband can take them to work for his snack. My 14yr old son loves cornbread & the added sausage & cheese is a plus for him. He takes them for morning snack at school.

Thank you Sara for sharing this great recipe. I had some sausage link in the freezer, so just thawed and peeled the casing off. I had a little more then the 1/3 lb the recipe called for . And didn't quite have enough cheese. My husband said I should make them again, but to use the exact amounts and maybe they won't crumble. He's going to eat some for his mid-morning snack, too. I'm definitely sharing this recipe with my two daughter-in-laws.

Very easy and tasty. I thought it was not going to taste good with the italian sausage but it turned out just fine. I am always looking for these type of muffin recipes for road trips and overnight guests.
