SAUSAGE AND CHEESE GRITS MUFFINS

Sausage Cheese Grits Muffins - TSLCThese Sausage and Cheese Grits Muffins are wonderful with soup on a cold day or with any meal.  Serve them for breakfast with coffee and eggs.  Grits are a Southern staple.  I love these with butter and coffee in the mornings. They will keep for several days in or out of the refrigerator and warm up great in the microwave or oven.

1/2 pound pork sausage, cooked

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup quick-cooking grits

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup butter,  melted

2 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons honey

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cook sausage in a skillet like hamburger, drain and set aside.  Whisk together flour, grits, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir in melted butter, eggs, buttermilk and honey with a spoon mixing well.  Fold in sausage and shredded cheese.  Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray, add batter and bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.  Makes 12 muffins.  Enjoy!

JANUARY IS NATIONAL OATMEAL MONTH!

oatmeal for breakfastThere are more oats consumed in January than any other month.  Oats provide fiber to your diet, help to improve LDL cholesterol, and are a great nutritious food.   Oats can be added to meatloaf to help it hold its shape.  Oatmeal cookies make a great snack and as a breakfast cereal oatmeal makes for a healthy morning meal.

I like to add fruit and cinnamon to my oatmeal along with fat-free milk and nuts.  I add about a teaspoon of honey for a sweetener.    Scientists are finding that cinnamon helps to lower sugar in diabetics and by adding  it to your oatmeal you are fighting cholesterol and diabetes!

Here is my recipe for my morning bowl of oatmeal.

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup blueberries (can use any fruit you like)
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup skim milk
nuts (optional) (I use walnuts because they are supposed to be good for cholesterol, too.)
 
Put oats and water in bowl and microwave for one minute.  Add remaining ingredients and stir.   Enjoy!
 
 You won’t get hungry before lunch with a good, healthy breakfast and oatmeal is one of the best choices available.  Entice your children to eat oatmeal by adding fruit and nuts to the bowl for a tastier breakfast treat. Oatmeal makes you feel fuller and stifles the cravings you might have for other less healthy foods.
 
I use oats in recipes to add nutrition and as a thickener because they are so good for you. 
 
 Check out 14 of my recipes I have listed using quick-cooking oats. Hope you will find something to make for National Oatmeal Month for your family.
