I discovered these awesome mini sausage cheese muffins on plainchicken.com 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 cold.....it 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.
