  • 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.
