Back to Work Bounty Breakfast Muffins

Slave is so happy hearing more and more of the people it knows are getting jobs finally. The purpose here is not politics, only to point out the great relief that people have to be re-employed! It truly is a blessing to be celebrated!

So here is a little something that you can make up on the weekend and have ready for a full week of getting up to leave the house with a goal and a tummy ready for the days work! These muffins freeze well, then can be microwaved while the coffee brews.

You might have noticed that slave always tries to show a picture of the ingredients lined up on the counter before starting to cook. Nothing is more frustrating than to be in the middle of cooking and find you don't have something that is important!

Getting everything out on the counter helps. The French even have a term for this, surprised?
They call it: “mise en place” (ME'S on plaaz) Everything in place!

¾ lbs low-fat low sodium sausage crumbled and well cooked.
2 Gala apples, peeled and chopped (use a sweet apple for this)
1 cup shredded low-fat Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
½ cup finely chopped yellow onion
¼ to ½ Cup of raisins or dried cranberries. (had a mix handy & used it)
½ teaspoon rubbed sage
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup of a “quick biscuit” or pancake mix
½ cup milk
3 eggs 

Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 12 regular-size muffin cup pan with cooking spray.

Cook up the sausage on a medium heat. Add sage to the meat as it cooks. Then drain it on several layers of paper towels.

As that drains, peel and chop the apple (put a damp paper towel over the apple bits – that will help to keep it from turning brown). Chop up the onion. Always chop the full onion, then freeze what you don't use, it will come in handy!


In large bowl, stir together cooked sausage, apple, cheese, onion, and salt. Let me tell you this will have the most wonderful aroma and it tastes so good, the temptation was to eat it from the bowl!

In medium bowl, stir together biscuit flour mix, milk and eggs with fork until well blended. 

Spoon 1 tablespoonful of that mixture into bottom of each muffin cup. This provides a foot or base to the muffins. 

Next using a large serving spoon add a spoonful of the meat-apple mixture in each cup then use up any remaining equally. Evenly spoon the remaining biscuit mixture on top of each, If it starts to look like you are going to run out, quickly whip up another egg to mix into the bowl. Take a damp piece of paper towel to wipe up the areas between the cups. This not only makes it look better, it keeps the small amounts from burning on the edge of the pan!

NOTE: If you place this on a lined sheet pan, you wont ever have spills to clean out of the oven!

Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and edges are golden. 

Cool 10 minutes in pan; transfer to cooling rack to cool completely. Once cold — wrap them up tightly in freezer bags: 2 per bag and freeze.


    Now you have a home-cooked breakfast that you can heat in microwave while coffee is brewing! Quick, healthy, good morning meals for six days of the week. Who knows, maybe someone will buy you brunch Sunday! ;-)
Hope you try these great little ready to eat meals.

It was on this day in 1996, fast-food giant Taco Bell took out a full-page ad in the papers, claiming to have purchased the Liberty Bell, and would be renaming it the Taco Liberty Bell. 
This, of course, prompted many, overly sensitive readers to explode in pure outrage! It got so bad that Taco Bell had to admit it was all a joke by noon, though not before the White House press secretary, in a rare moment of humor, remarked that the Lincoln Memorial had just been bought out by Ford and would be renamed the Lincoln Mercury Memorial.
