I am always on the hunt for interesting new breakfast ideas particularly ones that incorporate protein instead of just straight out carbs. I found a recipe for Savory Breakfast Muffins over on The Comfort of Cooking.
I decide to healthy the recipe up a bit with a few little changes. I swap out pork sausage for turkey sausage and used a white and wheat flour blend instead of Bisquick among a few other tweaks. The result was a tasty cheesy sausage biscuit.
My family really enjoyed this change of pace a breakfast. I hope yours will too.
