      These are good, not great. I used sage sausage and sharp cheddar and thought they were a bit bland. I'd use spicier sausage next time, or add some green chilis.

      YUM! I make these with vegetarian sausage but I'm sure they'd be terrific with just the veggies (we are vegetarian). I also made these with sharp cheddar, around 6 oz instead of 8 as I wasn't sure how powerful the cheese taste was going to be. It came out perfect! I have a tiny food processor so I processed half the flour with half the butter, dumped it in a bowl, did the rest of the flour and butter and then mixed everything together in a big bowl. Great recipe!

      I absolutely LOVE these! I make 36 mini muffins and take these everywhere! My daughter at college likes to have a few in the freezer for those gonna-be-late-for-class days but still wants breakfast! I served them at a bridal shower yesterday and very few returned home! VERY popular! I tried using mild Cheddar but personally find finely shredded sharp Cheddar to impart the necessary amount of flavor. I also backed the baking soda down to 3/4 tsp. and I think it could still be less. Will continue to experiment! Thank you for this EASY recipe! (Please try this recipe even if you don't have a food processor! I haven't used mine yet! I do, however, use my pastry blender and it's worked great every time!)
