My husband absolutely loved these tasty muffins. I made some into loaf shapes and the others into muffins. They were so flavorful and the gravy put them over the top. Reminded me somewhat of Thanksgiving. I made these as a side for him to heat up along with some chicken I had grilled for him to take.

Enjoy!

12 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a skillet over medium heat, brown sausage in a little oil, crumble as it cooks with a spatula. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel.
2
In the same skillet over medium heat, add the oil and once hot, saute onion, carrot and celery ( about 5 minutes) Stirring occasionally. Add the chicken broth, bring to a boil then simmer for about 10 minutes.
3
Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.

Place vegetables along with broth in a large bowl. To this add the salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, sausage, beaten eggs, bread and melted butter. Mix thoroughly.
4
To each muffin tin, add 1/2 - 1/3 cup bread mixture. Place in oven and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden on top.

I made a homemade gravy to serve over the top. I'm adding the mix I did if interested in making it.

1 - 15 ounce can chicken broth.
about 1/4 tsp herb de provence
couple pinches, dried parsley flakes
1 tsp or so, better than bouillon paste - chicken flavor
1/2 tsp gravy master - for color
2 tablespoons corn starch & 3 tablespoons water.


Bring broth, seasonings to a slow boil, stirring to dissolve bouillon. Mix water and cornstarch, forming a loose paste. Whisk into broth and continue stirring until thickened. Only take a few minutes. Season more if desired.

Ladle some gravy over each stuffin muffin. Delicious!
