Savory Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Muffins

Sharing with your friends!

Savory sausage and cheese breakfast muffins are my go-to quick breakfast option on busy mornings. Plus they freeze well so you can always keep them handy!

Savory Sausage and cheese breakfast muffins

I’ve always struggled with eating breakfast. As a kid, I either didn’t eat breakfast at all, or I gobbled down a sugary bowl of cereal. Both options not so great for my body or metabolism. As an adult, I just don’t feel like eating when I get up in the mornings. Coffee is the first thing on my agenda and usually by the time I’m finished with my first mug, eating is the last thing I feel like doing.

When I was leaving the house daily for work, I would skip breakfast because I was usually rushed or it was just inconvenient. And by 10-10:30 I was starving and still a few hours away from lunch. Even though I work from home now, I still need a quick breakfast food that is readily available for me to just grab. The less preparation the more likely I am to eat it.

That’s where these breakfast muffins come in. I can make these in double batches on the weekend and just freeze them! When I am ready to eat one, all I have to do is grab it from the freezer, wrap it in a paper towel and nuke it at 20 second intervals. It’s filling, easy and convenient.

Plus these breakfast muffins are customizable to your taste! Don’t like breakfast sausage? Try using crumbled bacon or chopped ham instead. Or what about cheese, dried onion and herbs? And even better, there’s no added sugar which is great for my goals!

So tell me, what are your favorite go to breakfast ideas?

Hi I have a question. I saw this recipe on pinterest the other day for brunch at my work tomorrow and my local store had no buttermilk (strange I know) so I brought the buttermilk self-rising mix. can I use that as a substitute for buttermilk and how much should I put in the recipe?

Hi Sydney

I'm not sure as I'm not familiar with what you are describing. You can make your own buttermilk using milk and vinegar. A google search should give you the ratios. Hope this helps!

My entire family is bad at eating breakfast if it isn't right in front of their face, so this is perfect. It's something I can make ahead and they can grab before running out the door. Pinned and featured it this week on Merry Monday.
