Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of bulk breakfast sausage (pork, turkey, or chicken)
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Bisquick-style baking mix

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a muffin tin or line it with paper liners for easy cleanup.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the breakfast sausage over medium heat, breaking it apart with a spatula, until it’s browned and cooked through. Drain any excess grease, if necessary, and allow the sausage to cool slightly.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked sausage, lightly beaten eggs, shredded cheddar cheese, and Bisquick-style baking mix. Stir until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  4. Spoon the mixture evenly into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
  5. Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and set in the center.
  6. Once baked, remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, you can enjoy the muffins immediately, or allow them to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  8. To reheat, simply microwave a muffin for about 60 seconds until heated through, and enjoy a delicious, hot breakfast on the go!
