I am a total fan of breakfast muffins as long as sausage is included. I mean what other kind of muffin does one want? One without sausage? I may just cook sausage because I want some with real Maple syrup – from Two Pigs Farm. Hot breakfast sausage with really good real maple syrup – those two things are amazing.
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup mashed sweet potato
2 large eggs
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 pound bulk hot sausage, cooked and drained
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, oats, allspice, salt, and baking soda. In another bowl, combine sweet potato, eggs, butter, oil, and syrup. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just mixed. Do not over mix. Fold in the sausage.
Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for five minutes then move to cooling rack. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
