Sunday morning breakfast muffins

I just discovered hot Italian sausage a few years ago and have been creating recipes to use it whenever I can.  Since the weather is keeping me indoors once again, I put Stones Voodoo Lounge in my cd player and mixed up a batch of these ~

Italian Sausage & Cheese Muffins

1/2 pound hot Italian sausage, browned and excess fat drained off

1. Mix together dry ingredients.  Gradually add in milk, butter and egg.  Add in cooled Italian sausage and cheese.

2. Grease standard or large muffin pans and fill each cup 2/3 cup.

3. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from cups.
