Cheesy Potato, Sausage & Gravy Breakfast Muffins

These breakfast muffins are a great start to a day! The combination of potato, cheese, sausage, and gravy is delicious. One thing I really like about them is they are great when feeding a crowd because you can make 24 of these in a snap. Kids like them because they are a biscuit filled with potato, cheese, and sausage. 

You can make these easy breakfast muffins ahead of time and warm them up...they are even good the next day (believe it or not). These are great for brunches or for an easy meal on the go. I hope you enjoy these for your breakfast as much as we do!

For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:



1 can of buttermilk biscuits (Grands)for large sized muffin pans or regular sized biscuits if using a regular sized muffin pan.
1 pound turkey breakfast sausage (browned, drained, and cooled)
1-16 oz bag southern hash browns, thawed
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
5 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
3 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp parsley
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Milk Gravy:

3 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt (adjust to taste)
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper (adjust to taste)
3 cups milk


For Breakfast Muffins:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

2. Crumble and cook sausage in s skillet over medium heat until browned. Drain.

3. Return to pan and add potatoes. Season with 1/4 tsp seasoning salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Cook until potatoes are lightly browned and cooked through. Set aside to cool.

4. Place one biscuit in the bottom of greased large cup muffin pan (you can use a regular sized muffin pan, but you will have leftover egg mixture). If you do use a regular sized muffin pan,I highly recommend using regular biscuit dough as they are smaller and will fit better in the pan. Press dough into the bottom of each cup making sure it comes up the sides.

5. Whisk together eggs, milk, green onions, paprika, garlic and onion powder, parsley, seasoning salt and pepper in a large bowl until blended. Add cheese, sausage and potato mixture. 

6. Pour egg mixture over biscuits until the cup is 3/4 full. Do not overfill the cups or you will have one BIG mess in your pan because the eggs will expand a little. 

7. Once you have made prepared all of the cupcakes, place pan on a rimmed baking sheet and put into preheated oven. Bake 30 minutes or until set. Let stand for 5 minutes. While the muffins are baking, begin making the milk gravy. 

Milk Gravy:

1. To a medium sized frying pan, add 3 tablespoons of butter and melt over medium. 

2. Once the butter is melted add flour. Using a metal whisk, mix the butter and flour and cook for 5 minutes on medium low heat. 

3. Gradually stir in milk and whisk constantly on medium high. Once the gravy starts to thicken add sugar, seasoning salt, and pepper. 

4. Cook until mixture is thick. Serve over the top of the muffins.
