What muffin tin should I use?
I like to use muffin tins that are wider at the top so there is not a huge hassle to get the sausage cups out. I use the Oven Baking Gray 12 Count Muffin Tins. These muffin tins were a present I got my boyfriend for our first Valentine’s Day, as if he bakes. We were in college and needed muffin tins, so that is what he ended up with.

Favorite ingredient brands to use for this sausage cup recipe:
*sausage-I recommend using a breakfast sausage. I have deer sausage from deer season so I use that sausage for everything. This would definitely be more breakfast like if it was made with breakfast sausage though.

Tips for baking sausage cups with cream cheese:
- good sausage-make sure you are using breakfast sausage, or a sausage that is not beer flavored or anything too savory. Sometimes I cut open brats and use them as sausage. You can do that here too, but again, make sure they are more of a sweet flavor
- do not over cook sausage-it is easy to burn sausage while browning. I recommend stirring as much as possible to ensure one side does not get black while the other sides stay pink/grey.
- ensure biscuits are done-to make sure the biscuits are done, pop one out of the pan after removing them from the oven. Feel if the edges are doughy. If they are doughy, bake 2-3 more minutes or until no longer doughy. If they are not doughy, keep the cups out of the oven, and remove them from pan.
How to store sausage and cream cheese biscuit bites:
- fridge-store this breakfast food in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week
- freezer-I have not tried freezing this recipe. If you would like to try it, go for it! Let me know how it goes.
- 1 lb sausage I used deer
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- 3 tbsp syrup
- seasonings to add at own preference: celery salt, garlic salt, pepper
- 2 cans biscuits 16 count total
- Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until lightly browned. Add rest of ingredients to skillet, except biscuits. Stir together until combined and cheese is melted.
- Spray muffin tins with nonstick spray. Pat each biscuit into a cup on the pan so that it makes a crust. Heap tablespoons of the sausage cheese mixture into the biscuit. The biscuit will expand, so do not fill to plum full of sausage.
- Bake for 10-12 mins at 400 degrees. Serve the sausage cups hot.
