Sausage & Cheese Muffins

Sundays are always a good day for something warm and filling to start off your day.  I like to make these muffins.  Normally I use hot Italian sausage and cheddar but I mixed it up and used mild Italian sausage with creamy Fontina cheese.





Sausage & Cheese Muffins

1/2 pound mild Italian sausage, browned and excess fat drained off
2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter melted
1 cup milk
1 large egg slightly beaten
3/4 cup Fontina cheese shredded

Mix together dry ingredients.  Gradually add in milk, butter and egg.  Add in cooled Italian sausage and cheese.  Grease standard or large muffin pans and fill each cup 2/3 full.  Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown at 350°.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing from cups.

Makes 12 regular size muffins.
