Sausage Cheese Grits Muffins -The Southern Lady Cooks


These Sausage Cheese Grits Muffins are wonderful with soup on a cold day or with any meal.  Serve them for breakfast with coffee and eggs.  Grits are a Southern staple.  I love these with butter and coffee in the mornings. They will keep for several days in or out of the refrigerator and warm up great in the microwave or oven.

Sausage Cheese Grits Muffins Simple Ingredients:

Pork sausage

All-purpose flour

Quick-cooking grits

Baking powder

Baking soda





Cheddar cheese

These muffins would be the perfect addition to any gathering and would ideal for a brunch. These are also great to make on a Sunday and enjoy during the week. They reheat well and I do think they would freeze just fine. If you like spice you could easily use hot pork sausage to add a little more kick!
