Sausage Cheese Muffins...
When Mr. U and I were first married, our town had a quaint coffee shop called Calico Coffee. At first, we visited every once in a while. Then it turned to weekly visits and before we knew it, we were there at least twice a week!!
We went in for breakfast. The owner had WONDERFUL coffee (and offered endless cups, too, if you ate in her shop!!) and big, Texas sized muffins. Yum!! I can still smell the fresh coffee brewing, the warm muffins coming out of the oven and hear Andrea Bocelli playing over her sound system.
Unfortunately, the coffee shop closed a few years ago. But the owner was kind enough to share a few of her recipes with me!! Mr. U's favorite, by far, and her best-seller-muffin was the Sausage Cheese Muffin. Y'all, it is SOO delicious!! Maybe you should surprise your family one morning with this scrumptious offering.
Sausage Cheese Muffins
3 cups Bisquick *
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup grated cheddar (feel FREE to use MORE cheese!!!)
1 pound sausage (we use hot)
1 1/3 cup milk
Brown sausage and onion until brown. Drain. Stir together Bisquick and cheese and then sausage/onion mixture. Stir in milk and mix well. Pour into prepared muffin tins (we use Texas size muffin tins). Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until they are golden brown on top.
* I will almost always use 3 cups of self-rising flour and then cup in about 1/4 cup of Crisco instead of using Bisquick.
Note: ALWAYS watch your oven! Oven temperatures vary so your oven may cook slower OR quicker!!!
