Cheese & Sausage Muffins

Cheese & Sausage Muffins

I know – I’ve been on a bit of a Sausage Kick lately – Mr. Man and Miss Thing are both super-huge sausage fans, and it has the benefit of being fairly economical and very versatile. I was in the mood to bake something, but Mr. Man tends to get a little bit grumpy if I make too many sweets. I think next time around I would increase the salt a little bit. This is a large recipe suitable for large crowds or planned leftovers. If a smaller batch is desired, just halve the recipe. While I was making it, I also didn’t realize that one of my muffin pans seems to have gone MIA since the move – or atleast hasn’t been unpacked yet, so rather than do two batches in one muffin pan, I took the remaining muffin batter and poured it in to a loaf pan. It took longer to bake than the muffins, but seems to be just as tasty. :-)
