Sweet and Savory Sausage Muffins

We had a great worship service and Sunday school lesson today! 
I made these muffins for our fellowship time. They received several compliments!

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, 
because it is not there. There is no such thing.

Sweet and Savory Sausage Muffins

These muffins have an interesting, complex taste. The brown sugar adds a bit of sweetness, the cayenne a touch of heat and the onion a nice savoriness.

1 pound pork sausage
1 bunch green onions
3 tablespoons butter
3 cups baking mix
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 cup buttermilk*
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Coat muffin tins with cooking spray.
Brown and drain sausage. While sausage is cooking, sauté onions in butter.
In a large mixing bowl, combine baking mix, brown sugar, dry mustard, cayenne, cheese, sausage and sautéed onions. Make a well in the center. Add eggs and milk. Stir gently.
Spoon into prepared  muffin cups and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

*Buttermilk Substitute
Place a tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup.
Add enough milk to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line
Allow to stand for five minute.
