Okay...I am better today. I made muffins this morning. I have been in a muffin state of mind lately...which is that idea that you can throw a lot of crazy ingredients into a muffin an come out with a wonderful compilation. Well, most of the time anyway. They turned out well, I think. All types of surprising flavors nestled in there. Here's what I did:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 T baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup flax seed (because it is a new favorite thing to add)
mix around and make a well for wet ingredients.
A good couple dashes of garlic salt with parsley
Just a dash of red pepper flakes
In another bowl, mix
one egg beaten
1 cup milk (I used almond milk...fewer calories and gives it a nutty twist)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Add the wet to the dry and before mixing, add
3/4 cup cooked sausage that has been seperated into small pieces (I used a fork and just mashed it up)
2 scrambled eggs (again cut into little pieces so that they will distribute well in the muffin)
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1 T creamy cheese
Mix, mix, mix...not forever, just till it's blended.
Pour into muffin pan--I made 6 giant muffins, as I only have that kind of pan.
Bake (I'm not sure how long, I just watch to see when tops are starting to get brown) and take out of oven when browned a bit. At this point I added a bit o' shredded cheese to the top just for visual candy and popped them back into the oven. Just for a minute. Grab them out, give a minute for cooling, have a muffin!
I like them...get some spicy flavors, some sweet cheesy flavors, some nuttiness. They are very filling! I'll take one by to my friend Leslie...she is my taster on the outside.
