I just made your recipe posted here and the batter is very soupy. Is that right?

Fantastic tailgate food

The only substitution I made is Chorizo for the the pork sausage. It adds some nice spice and goes great with early morning tailgating!

Excellent - they were a hit! Made these with turkey sausage. Had to chop the sausage a little more after i cooked it since the turkey sausage didn't crumble as much as regular sausage.

A friend made this before and I wanted to try it. I didn't have a can of cheese soup so I used broccoli and cheese soup. Tastes just as good and a great way to sneak a vegetable into your kids food.

SO good! I made no changes. The cheese soup mixture made the muffins really moist (now I need to figure out how to incorporate that same moistness into my sweeter muffins). They are very hearty, perfect for early winter mornings. I filled my regular sized muffin tins to the rim and was still able to get 20 muffins. We ate 12 of them Sunday morning. I put the rest of the batter in the fridge and made them Monday morning for everyone before heading off to school/work. Great, easy recipe!

I've made these so many times I can't remember! They are always at hit at our church bake sales and sell out quickly. My family just loves them and they are great for a quick breakfast for the kids.

Good and easy, but the older recipe is better....

There is a recipe that appeared in Southern Living in 1990 that trumps this one.  This is good - don't get me wrong - but the other is better.  Here are the ingredients:  1/4 lb sausage, 3 oz cream cheese, 1/2c shredded cheddar cheese, 1/4c diced green onion, 1c Bisquick, 2 eggs, 2/3c milk.  Directions: Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the center then add combined milk and eggs. Stir until just moistened. Spoon into greased muffin pan, filling 3/4 full. Bake at 350 for 35 - 40 minutes or until done. Makes 12 muffins.  We have made these for 25+ years.  Perfect for breakfast on the go.  Easy to refrigerate and reheat.  Enjoy!

Family Did Not Like

Made these, thinking they'd be a hit with son and husband. They did not like at all. I thought they were just okay. We won't make again.
