What's for Breakfast?

Sausage Cheese Muffins

2 cups flour, 1/2 of it whole wheat
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp Baking Powder
6 Tbsp Butter
1/2 lb. sausage, crumbled, browned, and drained
1 cup grated cheese, (we use cheddar)
1 3/4 -2 cups milk
Spray muffin tins with Pam or grease lightly.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together the dry ingredients.  With a pastry blender or fork add butter.  Chop butter in small slices before adding to make it easier to mix.  Butter should be chilled.  When it is crumbly, add the sausage and cheese.  Mix well.  Add the milk.  Mix only until combined.  The mixture should be gloppy, but not runny.  Fill muffin tins half full.  Any empty tins (unfilled in the tray, because you ran out of dough)  fill halfway with water.  This makes them bake evenly.  Don't over mix after adding the milk.  Over mixing makes the muffins tough.  Bake until golden brown on top.  Delicious!  Makes approximately 18 muffins.
