French Toast Maple Sausage Muffins
I’m a very predictable breakfast person. I have a piece of cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter. Pretty much everyday for ‘first’ breakfast.

I’m not opposed to ‘second’ breakfast. After I have a small something in my system, then I can enjoy these french toast muffins.

Anyone else a first & second breakfast kind of person?

Breakfast on the go or breakfast in bed just got a whole lot easier.

French Toast Maple Sausage Muffins

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 12 regular sized muffins


  • 1 box (9.6 oz) precooked maple sausage links
  • 2 & 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope rapid rise yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup very warm milk (120º to 130ºF)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Syrup, for dipping


  1. Heat the frozen sausage according to the package directions. Use a paper towel to pat the sausage dry. Slice it into thin pieces. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bow, combine 1 & 1/2 cups flour, yeast packet, sugar, and salt. Add the milk, oil, egg, and vanilla, mix for 2 minutes.
  3. Slowly add the remaining 1 & 1/4 cups of flour - a stiff dough will result.
  4. Stir in the sliced sausage.
  5. Grease a regular sized 12-muffin pan, do not use paper liners. Divide the dough evenly among the 12 cups.
  6. In a draft free place (I used the inside of my oven, while it was OFF) let the dough rise for 20 minutes. The dough will rise slightly, but not double in size.
  7. Remove the muffin pan and let the oven preheat, bake at 375 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until slightly brown.
  8. Allow the muffins to cool for 2 minutes, then remove from the pan.
  9. Serve with syrup and refrigerate any leftovers.

    Beth, I’m such a predictable breakfast person when it comes to eggs. I could even eat them for dinner! But, I love this fun breakfast treat you created!

      Eggs are a great everyday breakfast.. probably not cinnamon rolls though haha.

    That sounds delicious! I will have to give this a try..I found you on the MMJ link party. thanks for sharing!

  7. I’m definitely trying these, Beth. Do you think using GF Bisquick will work? Would I need a full packet of yeast if I do use that?

    • Beth @ The First Year — April 8, 2014 at 5:52 pm

      I am not sure about using GF bisquick. You could google to see if you can use it as a 1 for 1 substitute for regular flour.
