Sausage muffins have been a staple in our home for a while. I remember my grandmother making sausage muffins when we would go over to her house when we were young. She got the recipe from an old Betty Crocker cookbook, I believe. They were always served warm and would be fresh out of the oven when we got to her house. She would change up the recipe regularly, adding different sausages and even throwing in some spicy pepper every now and again. My favorites always had cheese in them.

Since then, I’ve been making sausage muffins for the twins but I’ve never limited myself to breakfast sausage like so many recipes call for. Instead I use everything from Italian sausage to apple gouda sausage.
Sausage is a staple in our house, always has been. Typically less expensive then other types of meat, I’ve found a million ways to make tasty dinners, like sausage muffins, for our family.
Recently, I’ve started working with Perdue Farms and while this post isn’t sponsored, my love for buying meat online has been a lifesaver during this pandemic. I was having a very hard time finding sausage and other goodies when this first started and being able to purchase a freezer full of meat online has not only given me a peace of mind that I have what I need on hand, but it’s given me less stress by saving me a trip to the store. Right now Perdue Farms has a great sausage bundle on sale, and between the sale and our 15% off by using the code TWINS, you can have that same peace of mind too no matter if you are buying chicken or sausage for your sausage muffins.
If you want to try your hand at sausage muffins, embrace the recipes below and find that one that you think you and your twins will respond most to. There are DOZENS of sausage muffin recipes out there, so I’ve weeded out the ones that I think are the best. Try ’em out and tell me which one you think you’ll make first.
This is the OG sausage muffin recipe that I believe my grandmother used to make from Betty Crocker.

I’d consider using the Jalapeño Cheddar Bratwurst by Coleman Natural Foods with this one. The added beer taste will REALLY make this a touchdown.

I’ve also made a cajun variety by tossing in “holy trinity” (carrots, celery, onion) along with some Niman Ranch Andouille Sausage for those.
