Savory Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Muffins

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.
