Sausage & Cheese Muffins - Football Friday



This isn't any Football Friday; this is Iron Bowl Football Friday! This is the biggest game of the year!  It is the best and most hard-fought rivalry game in the country!  This year is about more than bragging rights as there are national championship implications again.  No matter what, it is always an exciting game.


I saw this recipe on two different food blogs in the same week (here and here), so I knew they should be good.  These little muffins are very similar to the Sausage Cheese Puffs I posted a few weeks ago.  The only difference is these muffins have a secret ingredient - Fiesta Nacho Cheese soup.  These were a hit at the tailgate.  I took the whole batch and only had a few leftover; they reheated well for breakfast the next morning.



Sausage and Cheese Muffins
adapted from myrecipes.com
(Printable Recipe)


  • 1 lb. hot ground pork sausage
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 1 (10.75 oz) can condensed fiesta nacho cheese soup
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (water or milk will work too)


Cook sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium to med-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and no longer pink. Drain and cool.

Preheat oven to 375. Combine sausage, baking mix, and shredded cheese in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Stir together the soup and buttermilk; add to sausage mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon until lightly greased mini muffin tins, filling to tops of cups. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned.

  1. Any recipe name that starts off with "Sausage and cheese" immediately gets my attention and these sound super good, as have all of those you've posted. In spite of the fact that Saban and I are from the same place, I'll have to pull for Auburn as I've always been partial to them - I think I just like the name - and it's the SEC's only chance at the national title.

  2. Have you caught your breath yet? I have to say that was the best game I have watched all year.

    Do you think these are better than the sausage muffins that you did last year? Those are one of my favorites.

  4. LOVED these! They reminded me of sausage balls and were easier to make since you didn't have to do all that rolling and such. Will definitely make again!!

  9. Uumm..why does it call for buttermilk and then says add water in the instructions? If you wanted water then why not just say water instead of buttermilk..sorry just confused.

  13. How many muffins does one batch of these make? I am needing to send some for a group of about 10 boys and need to plan ahead.

    Also, the 7-up biscuits were a big hit at my house and have become a go-to staple! Thanks!!

  14. Can you make these without the soup or will the consistency not be the same? I have everything except the soup.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You do need the soup in this recipe. I have a sausage and cheese puff recipe that doesn't require the soup - they are great too

  16. Hi Steph;

  18. Can I use regular milk instead of water or buttermilk

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ok I swear I read that 10 times and just now saw where is says milk will work too! I saw the water part lol

  20. Can you make the batter before (like the night before) then make the muffins in the morning?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Ashley - you could do that or even make the muffins the night before and just reheat them in the morning.

  22. I found this recipe through Pinterest and made them this morning. Soooo good! :) I got 80 mini muffins out of the recipe, and I followed it exactly, exept I needed a splash more milk to moisten it all. I'll be making these a lot this fall/winter!

  23. omg i just found this recipe through iowa girl eats. this is amazing!! I was looking for the perfect breakfast tailgate food for a football game this weekend--found it!!

  24. Where do you find that soup? I've looked in a few stores around me and nobody seems to have it :(

    ReplyDelete
  25. I found the soup at Publix. If you can't find the fiesta soup, you can use plain cheddar cheese soup.

  26. Taylor - I got between 30 & 36 muffins

  27. Do you have to refrigerate them and then warm them up the next day? I made them to tailgate tomorrow. Thanks!

    1. Jennaj - I don't refrigerate them, but it won't hurt them if you do. They should taste great reheated in the morning

  30. I'm making these today at my brother in laws. He doesn't have any muffin tins, so I'm going to try to cook them on a pan. Hope they turn out!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wanted to follow up from my last comment. They worked great, even without the muffin tins.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks for letting us know. I'll have to try it next time.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I make these in regular muffin tins and cook them for about 20-25 minutes. The recipe makes a dozen large muffins. I then freeze them, and they're great for a quick breakfast. Just cook on the thaw setting of the microwave for approximately 90 seconds, and they are ready to eat! I'm so glad I found this recipe on pinterest!

  34. Saw this on Pinterest...WAR EAGLE! I made a version of this recently for one of my Demarle at Home cooking classes...and it was fantastic...and a huge hit. Thanks for sharing your version. It will definitely be on the SEC championship game menu. Gotta love SEC football!!!

  36. Can you tell me the consistency of the batter? I can't have gluten so the soup is out. I wondered if a think jarred queso might work? I can use GF Bisquick, so the soup is the only issue. Anyone have ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Why do you brown the sausage first on this one, but others you don't? Will it affect these if I don't? I've had some dry sausage balls and some not so dry and I'm just wondering if that's the difference.

  39. Kim - you cook the sausage first because these are muffins with sausage in them. These are muffins.

    You don't cook the sausage in sausage balls because they are meatballs. You are wanting to taste the sausage and not have it be a muffin.

  40. Can I use flour instead of all purpose baking mix?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sherry - no, you need to use bisquick or make a homemade version of bisquick.

  42. Hi, I'm in the uk and we don't have the soup listed any other ideas on what I could use? Thanks.

  45. Made these for my church's Easter brunch this morning ~ they were a hit! I will definitely make again!

  46. Can these be served cold or do they lose their flavor? We have no heat at our tailgate and it will be in the 50's...
