Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Muffins with Grits
A sweet & savory breakfast muffin, this one features several breakfast favorites like crumbled sausage, stone ground grits, eggs, & cheddar cheese in every bite.
- 1 lb ground sausage
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup quick cooking grits
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cook the sausage in a skillet, breaking it up as it cooks. When fully cooked through & crumbled, drain the sausage. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients- flour, grits, baking powder, baking soda, and salt- until evenly combined.
Add the wet ingredients- butter, eggs, buttermilk, & honey- stirring just until evenly mixed.
Using a spatula, add the sausage & cheese to the bowl, and fold it into the batter.
Spray a 12 count muffin tin with non stick cooking spray.
Add the batter to the muffin tins, dividing it as evenly as possible between all twelve.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
