There's a sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich inside each of these muffins

Breakfast Sandwich Muffin - Thrillist Recipes

Muffin bottoms just got cool. 

To help you avoid the confounding breakfast choice between a delicious sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich or an also-delicious muffin, we created the Breakfast Sandwich Muffin, an early morning behemoth that bakes sausage, egg, and cheese right into a sweet, buttery cornbread muffin.

Douse each bite with hot sauce or maple syrup, or, hell, both. Then go to sleep and do it all over again.

The ultimate breakfast sandwich isn't a sandwich at all... it's a muffin.

Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Stuffed Muffins Recipe

Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Stuffed Muffins Recipe

Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 6 jumbo muffins

  • Cooking spray
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 pre-cooked pork breakfast sausage patties
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 slices American cheese, quartered into 4 squares
  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Spray 6 molds of a standard size muffin tin with cooking spray and crack one egg in each mold. Fill the empty molds halfway with water. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Brown sausage patties according to package instructions.
  • Remove eggs from oven and increase temperature to 400°F. Grease a jumbo muffin tin.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add beaten egg, oil, and milk; stir gently to combine. Divide half the batter evenly among muffins molds.
  • In each muffin mold, place 2 quarter-slices of cheese over the batter, top with sausage, 1 more quarter-slice of cheese, baked egg, and 1 more quarter-slice of cheese. Fill to the top with remaining batter. Bake until muffins are puffed and begin to brown, about 20 minutes.
