Sausage and Cheese Cornbread Muffins

Sausage and Cheese Cornbread Muffins

I really love cooking and baking and I take pride in making things from scratch. It really makes me feel good to know exactly what is going into the food that I am making for my family (even if it is something loaded with sugar). You want to know what I hate? Absolutely anything that happens before about 9am. I am the complete opposite of a morning person, but for some reason my family keeps on waking up at a normal time and expecting breakfast. Because I have this profound hatred for the morning, I am always looking for ways to simplify my breakfast recipes. Enter these sausage and cheese cornbread muffins. I made these just a little easier by using a box of corn muffin mix, and I am so thankful for that when I am making a half-asleep Sunday morning breakfast.

Sausage and Cheese Cornbread Muffins
The best thing about these muffins is that they can be personalized and modified in so many ways. Want to add a little kick? Add some jalapeños. Want to load them with veggies? Chop ’em up and throw ’em in! Want to swap the sausage out for bacon? Do it! Want to slip Benadryl in to knock your kids out so you can go back to sleep? Kidding!

Please remember to let these cool for at least 10 minutes before removing them from the muffin tins. If you don’t, they will fall apart on their way out. They will still taste great, but will be hideous to look at.

I like to top mine with sour cream and pico de Gallo. Salsa, guacamole or green onion would be delicious as well! Please let me know how these turn out for you, and enjoy!
