Sausage Monkey Bread Muffins
We are not early morning people, I wish we were. You would think being ranchers, that we would be up an at 'em at the crack of dawn.
Not so much. Most of the time, breakfast is totally optional. So when I can come up with an easy breakfast that can be made ahead of time and ready to go, it's a winner in my book.
I'm blaming tax time for these comfort food cravings. Ugh, I just need about one more day to get all of the bookwork finished up. I should have everything to the accountant about 20 minutes before the deadline to file an extension.
On the plus side, these monkey bread muffins are much easier than taxes. The ingredients are so simple: eggs, milk, butter, can biscuits and breakfast sausage. The biscuits are cut into quarters and then everything is tossed together.
Spoon it all into a muffin tin and bake them up! Easy, easy, easy.
I love the individual servings and that made them perfect to pop in the toaster oven for a quick breakfast all through the week! They are savory and delicious right out of the pan or if you are like me and like a sweet bite for breakfast, go ahead and pour a little maple syrup over the top. You won't be sorry.
