Sausage Muffins Cooking Tips:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease a regular muffin pan or use cupcake liners.

Making these muffins is a breeze. Start by preheating your oven and greasing your muffin tin lightly.

Whisk together the dry ingredients – flour, sugar, baking powder, cayenne pepper, and salt.

Next, stir in the shredded cheddar cheese.

In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk and egg, then add this mixture to the dry ingredients. Fold in the cooked and drained sausage until evenly distributed.

Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, filling each cup about two-thirds full, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until they turn golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Personally, I think they’re best when eaten warm!

Small Batch Sausage Muffins FAQ:

Can I freeze these muffins?
