How to Make Bisquick Sausage Muffins

These muffins are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large skillet, cook breakfast sausage over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Drain excess grease. Mix together Bisquick baking mix, ground sage, garlic powder, and dried thyme in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. Stir sausage and shredded Swiss cheese into the batter.

Spray a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Scoop muffin batter into the muffin tins. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown. Garnish with parsley.

What to Serve with Sausage & Swiss Muffins

These muffins are a staple at our house. I always have the ingredients on hand to whip them up at a moment’s notice. These savory muffins pair wonderfully with various sides, making them versatile for any occasion. For a sweet and savory twist, dipping them in warm, rich maple syrup can add a delightful contrast to the savory flavors of the muffins.

On the other hand, if you’re craving a heartier option, serving them with a side of sausage gravy is a fantastic choice. The creamy, savory gravy complements the sausage muffins beautifully, creating a comforting and indulgent combination that’s perfect for a hearty breakfast or brunch. Don’t forget some scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes, and fresh fruit on the side to complete your meal. With these options, you’ll have a satisfying and mouthwatering spread that everyone will love.

  1. OMG, we made them this morning and loved them! I was worried that my "batter" was too thick but they turned out perfect and just at the prescribed temps/times.

    We used colby/jack instead of swiss because the only swiss I had was in slices. Alexis and I were VERY happy with them. They were just the ticket for a holiday morning breakfast. Thanks!!

  2. These would be good for breakfast tomorrow and I think I have everything I need already, just have to thaw out sausage. How many does this yield, about a dozen?

  3. Again, I've got to get Southern Living. So many good recipes. This would be for breakfast with a perfectly pretty fried egg and a tall glass of orange juice. Happy Thanksgiving Steph.
