Sausage and Cheese Grits Muffins These 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!
