Sausage & Cheese Muffins


I made breakfast yesterday, using one of the breakfast muffin recipes that I posted last week.  The bacon and cheese muffins sounded good to me, so that was the plan.  I had sausage  but not bacon, and remembering my vow to be resourceful and not wasteful, I decided to use the sausage on hand instead of buying bacon.  I used Applegate Natural links which are gluten free.  I thinly sliced two links for the recipe.


20140501_112016      Usually, when I fill muffin tins, I tend to put too much batter in each cavity.  As a result, I often end up with only 10 or 11 cavities filled , and thus not a complete dozen. This time, though,  there was only enough batter to fill six of the twelve cavities.


The recipe came from a muffin cookbook I bought years ago.  It did not specify using a mini-muffin tin, and the muffins in the photo appeared to be regular sized.  So, why after using the measurements prescribed, did I end up with only a half-dozen?  The biscuit mix was a gluten-free variety.  That sometimes affects the consistency of what is baked, but it shouldn’t affect the amount of  batter produced. Any thoughts?

  1. Hi there Baker nephew, The six you got look really good. I think I would pass on sausage; however you are so resourceful I would have to eat the sausage! (I love
    bacon, but wouldn’t that have more grease than the sausage)?
    Keep baking, I like your results! aln

Sit. Eat. Tell me what you think...
