Sausage Cups

December 21, 2022

Christmas morning comes with so many wonderful things. The sounds of laughter,

the looks of anticipation, the sleepy-eyed parents (and teens), and the pitter

patter of little feet before sunrise. Of course, once the wrapping paper is

scattered and stockings are empty, you will begin to hear the rumble of hungry

bellies. Maybe you change it up every year or maybe you have a tradition that is

etched in the family stone, but not matter what you serve, Christmas morning

breakfast is nearly as important as Christmas dinner.

One item that we have consistently served in our house on Christmas morning is

our grandmother’s sausage biscuit cups. It requires only four ingredients and

though it is very simple, the most “difficult” part can be done the day before.

Below you will find the recipe for these Christmas morning Sausage cups. If you

plan ahead, you can brown the sausage and mix the milk and cheese the night

before. Put it in an airtight container and refrigerate until the next morning. Once

presents are opened, all you have to do is open the biscuits and fill each muffin

tin with the prepped sausage mixture.

Whether pairing with a four-course breakfast, or serving proudly with cold milk

and leftover cookies, your family will be excited to try this Christmas morning

special. We hope you all enjoy them as much as we have over the years!
