Going, going, gone!
After you make these muffins, they’ll be gone…fast!
I wanted to make a muffin that tasted like my favorite sausage balls…and I’m glad I did because these were a hit!
These make the perfect quick breakfast, lunchbox treat or after school snack. You can even freeze them and then pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm up. Simple, savory, and so good!
This recipe makes about 20 muffins.
1 pound of breakfast sausage, uncooked (I used Owens)
4 cups of Bisquick
2 1/2 cups milk
1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line 2 (12-count) muffin tins with muffin liners. Set aside.
In one mixing bowl, crumble in your uncooked breakfast sausage. Next, stir in your dry Bisquick mix. Using a wooden spoon, combine the two together. (They’re not going to totally combine, just kind of knead the uncooked sausage and Bisquick together for a minute. Don’t over think this or over work it.)
In a second bowl, whisk together your milk and eggs. Slowly pour this mixture over your sausage mixture. Stir together until everything is combined. Next, stir in your cheese.
Divide batter (it will be lumpy!) among your muffin tins. I was able to get 20 muffins out of this batter.
Place muffins in oven and bake about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from oven and serve immediately or store.
Trust me, these will be gone in no time! A muffin that tastes like a sausage ball…that’s a good way to start your day!
I had everything on hand to make these muffins so I whipped up a batch this afternoon. I even had some leftover batter to make mini muffins – hoping the mini factor will make my kids more interested in eating them. 🙂 Can't wait to have breakfast ready all week long!
Didnt work for me.
The muffins stuck to the paper liners so much that there was nothing left of the muffins! Maybe should try without the liners.
I love this idea and they smelled SO good but it didn't work for me either. Mine yielded a full 24 muffins, but the sausage sure seemed raw to me after 20 minutes of cooking. I left them in another 10 minutes and the muffins overcooked but the sausage still seemed woefully undercooked. As an aside, I didn't use paper liners but sprayed the pan and they came out easily. I would totally brown the sausage as a first step if I were to do this again.
Thanks! The other recipes I've tried of yours have worked very well!

Hi! Writing from south africa, looks delicious however i do not know what bisquick is? It happens often that i see an awesome recipe but it has some "foreign" ingredients and then i am unsure asnto what to substitute it with. Any ideas? Would be great as i am also a busy mom to three ( count them) boys, 13, 10 and 7 🙂
We just made these and they're missing something. I think we will stick to the sausage balls!! Thanks for sharing.

Shay! My family was so wonderfully excited about this breakfast! I've been reading your blogs for about a year now and just love your sweet family. These muffins and the Bacon and Tater Tot Casserole were a huge hit! We had out of town guests for Thanksgiving week, and they just wanted me and my mom to keep making these same recipes every day! Thanks for sharing!!
My whole family loved these! They do stick to paper liners but work great with foil liners. Thanks for a great recipe!
I have a similar recipe and we will have them for dinner with eggs and fruit! Love this simple, easy recipe.
Can I mix it up the night before and bake in the morning? Thanks.
