Breakfast Sausage Muffins

This makes waking up fun. For reals. Let’s try it. Everyone, go back to bed. Now, wake up and think about fresh from the oven muffins packed with bits of bacon or sausage and cheese. Wake up call! I’ll have 10, thank you!  When I saw this recipe here,  I knew it was something I had to try. Everyone loved them. Loved, as in, ‘why didn’t I make 4 batches instead of just one?’  They were delicious.  Quick story before we start with the I was putting these out on the table to eat, my little guy thought it would be really funny to dump his cup of water all over them. Yeah. Real funny.  Needless to say, I had to make them again…just to make sure we liked them. And..yep, they’re keepers. 😀 Alright, on to the ingredients..

1/2 pound ground pork sausage, browned, drained
1 cup pancake mix
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus a little extra for sprinkling on top
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup milk (I used 1%, and it turned out fine, but the original recipe calls for Whole milk)
salt and pepper to taste
*handful of bacon bits (optiona)

The How-To:
*Preheat oven to 350*
*Grease the muffin cups of a standard muffin pan
*Cook sausage, and drain well
*When cooled, place in a large bowl and add pancake mix, sour cream and cheddar cheese

*In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs and milk
*combine with the sausage (and bacon bits, if using) and mix completely, but don’t over stir
*add salt and pepper to your liking
*pour evenly into muffin pan
*bake for 30-40 minutes until cooked through (it took ours about 30 minutes)
*take out of oven and sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Let it melt
*remove from muffin pan immediately

These do take a bit of time to bake, so if you wanted to make these in the morning, cook the sausage the night before and set in fridge.  When you wake up, mix everything and bake.
