“Grab & Go” Sausage and Cheese Buttermilk Muffins

I am the world’s worst about eating the most important meal of the day.  Sometimes I will scramble some eggs on the weekend, but I almost NEVER think about breakfast during the week.  My biggest problem is time.  I always seem to be short of it.  Because I am just not a morning person.

Not. At. All.

That blaring alarm in the morning scares the crap out of me.  Then I cut it off and back to sleep I go.  This routine happens for at least 30 minutes every. single. morning.  So there goes the 30 minutes I could have had for breakfast.  And if I tried to get up earlier…well…you don’t want to know.

I decided this weekend that I really need to change that horrible habit.  And to ease into my new routine, I knew I needed something I could make ahead to “grab & go”, JUST IN CASE, I caved and hit that snooze button.  So I came up with these “Grab & Go” Sausage and Cheese Buttermilk Muffins!

Ingredients for Grab & Go Sausage and Cheese Buttermilk Muffins

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Brown your sausage (If you’ve read my other posts, then you know I use Wright’s Sausage) and drain very well. Next, you will want to mix your dry ingredients together (White Lily flour, salt, sugar & nutmeg). In a separate bowl, whisk together your beaten egg, buttermilk & melted butter.

Now…pour your wet ingredients into the dry and mix well. This will not be a smooth batter! So just make sure all of the ingredients are incorporated together and not over mixed. Finally fold in your sausage & cheese. You will want to grease your muffin tins with some cooking spray. I always use Pam Butter Flavored Spray. Then just spoon in the batter to the top of each tin.

Bake these for 15-18 minutes depending on your oven. You want the bottoms brown and the tops golden.  Let cool and then spoon each muffin out of the tin to serve.  I can just taste these now!!

Luckily…it’s the weekend. And this Sunday morning I’m not in a rush. So I’ll start my new routine off slowly. A cup of coffee, a magazine & my Sausage & Cheese Buttermilk Muffin(s).

    I love that you put 2% cheese in it and butter on it. My kinda girl, the kind that picks and chooses where to cut back. I keep telling my husband it only has to make sense to me.
