Sausage and Cheese Mini Muffins

I discovered these awesome mini sausage cheese muffins on a few months ago, and am seriously addicted to them.  They perfect for breakfast on the go, game day snacks, or cute appetizers. I prefer to grab a couple in the morning and eat them on my way to work. The nice thing is that the recipe makes a ton, so I store mine in a large ziploc bag in the fridge, then when you need a couple, wrap them in a paper towel and stick them in the microwave for a few seconds.  I won't lie, I ate one was still pretty good:) 
You will need:
-1 lb. ground pork sausage (I used mild)
-1 tsp onion powder
-3 cups all purpose baking mix
-1 (10.75oz) can condensed fiesta nacho cheese soup ( I used Campbell's)
-2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
-3/4 cup buttermilk (you can substitute regular milk and it works just fine)
*Pre heat oven to 375.  Spray a mini muffin pan very well with non stick cooking spray. 
*Cook sausage and onion powder in large skillet over med-high heat until no longer pink.  Drain and cool. 
*Combine sausage, baking mix, and shredded cheese in a large bowl.  Make a well in the center of the mixture.  Stir together the soup and buttermilk.  Add to the sausage mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. 
*Spoon into greased muffin tin, filling to the top.  Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned.  Let cool in muffin tin for a few minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.  Store in refrigerator.
