Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Muffins

I love cheesy baked goods.  I guess I love cheese in almost anything. These muffins are loaded with cheese, cottage cheese and sausage and are a delicious easy breakfast that can be served hot or cold (however hot is the best). They are wonderful made ahead and stored in the freezer for a quick and delicious protein breakfast; just rewarm and eat.

3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (I use White Wheat, which is my favorite for baking as it is a light soft whole wheat.  You could use sprouted whole wheat flour, pastry flour, rye, barley flour or white flour for these as well)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
6 Tablespoons butter
1 cup cottage cheese
1 1/2 to 2 pounds breakfast sausage,  browned.
2 cups shredded cheddar or asiago Cheese 
2 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients together well.
  3. Add butter 1 tablespoon at a time, and cut in until well blended.
  4. Add cooked sausage, cottage cheese and cheddar cheese and eggs; stir well into flour mixture.
  5. Add buttermilk.  
  6. Stir until well blended.
  7. Put into prepared muffin tins.
  8. Top with a little extra cheese.
  9. Bake at 375 for 15 -20 minutes.
  10. Makes 24 muffins.


  1. One of my children (in reference to a different post) said that your photos look like those you see in a magazine. Just thought that would make you smile. Hugs, Camille

  2. Oh my do these ever look delicious! I think I'll be adding the ingredients to my shopping list. This would be perfect for today. It's all dreary out and they are calling for rain.

    I hope you are doing well, I sure do miss you! The boys of ours sure did have fun playing in the mud the other day.

    Have a lovely weekend,

  3. Thanks Anne, and Camille, your children's comments really blessed me; tell them thank you for me… I'm always working hard at my photography. Thanks Amy, sure miss you guys; Steve said he had a nice visit with Barry last night.
