Morning Star Farms Maple Sausage patties are vegetable sausage patties, and if you haven’t had them, they’re really good, and they’re organic. They’re kept in the freezer section, and you can get them at most grocery stores. You can also use another sausage if you prefer, however, you’ll need to drain the fat off of regular sausage before topping the muffins.
- Jiffy cornbread mix– This is a great way to save time and ingredients by using a box mix. If you have a favorite cornbread muffin recipe, you can use that too.
- Egg- You will want to use a room temperature egg.
- Milk- You can use whole milk, 2%, or fat free.
- Onion- You will want to dice the onion into small pieces.
- Green Pepper- Dice the green peppers into small pieces.
- Maple syrup- I prefer real maple syrup but you can use whatever kind you have on hand.
- Butter- Always use unsalted butter so that you can control the amount of salt in the recipe.
- Morning Star Farms Maple Sausage Patties- This is a vegetarian sausage that is found in the freezer section. You can use traditional sauge if you prefer.
How to Make Sausage Corn Muffins
Place 4 sausage patties in a frying pan and cook according to the package.
In a bowl, mix together the Jiffy mix, egg, milk, onions, and peppers with the maple syrup and melted butter. Stir them together until it is combined.
Fill the cupcake pan with liners and then fill them until it is about 3/4 of the way full.
Crumble the sausage into the muffin batter.
Add a few drops of maple syrup to each muffin and then bake them for 10-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until they are golden brown.
Can I Make These Ahead of Time and Freeze for Later?
Yes! I love it when I can cook once and eat twice and these sausage muffins are perfect for that. After the muffins have cooled, wrap each one well in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer bag. When you are ready to enjoy the muffins, take them from the freezer and let them thaw. You can reheat them in the microwave.
Do These Need to Be Refrigerated After Cooked?
You will want to store these corn bread muffins with sausage in the refrigerator. While corn bread muffins can be stored at room temperature usually, because of the vegetarian sausage in these muffins, you want to store them in the refrigerator.
