This year we decided to have a last minute get together for the Super Bowl. Usually I spend a good amount of time planning our get togethers or parties. In this case, I had about 48 hours. I immediately headed to Pinterest to look for some quick and easy recipes that wouldn't have me spending a fortune.
I chose these sausage & cheese muffins because they would be a great compliment to the rest of the menu I had planned. We were also having chicken wings, chips and queso, seven layer dip and buffalo chicken dip. I also knew the boys would eat these up.
Results: A hit of the party, not only with the men but with the ladies as well. I loved that they were bite sized and full of flavor. I had a few left over and enjoyed them for breakfast reheated the next morning. Enjoy!
Sausage & Cheese Muffins
Courtesy of Plain Chicken
- 1 lb. hot ground pork sausage
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 3 cups all-purpose baking mix
- 1 (10.75 oz) can condensed fiesta nacho cheese soup
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 3/4 cup buttermilk (water or milk will work too)
Cook sausage and onion powder in a large skillet over medium to med-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and no longer pink. Drain and cool.
Preheat oven to 375. Combine sausage, baking mix, and shredded cheese in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Stir together the soup and buttermilk; add to sausage mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon until lightly greased mini muffin tins, filling to tops of cups. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned.
