It is best to have all the ingredients at room temperature when you start.
Preheat oven to 425° F.
In a large frying pan brown the sausage. Drain, let cool and crumble into
small pieces about half an inch or less.
In a large bowl mix the dry, (everything except the eggs and buttermilk)
ingredients together until everything is well blended and evenly distributed.
In a smaller bowl mix the wet ingredients together. Beat the eggs and the
mix in the buttermilk.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until everything
is coated. It will be sticky.
Spoon the mixture into an ungreased muffin pan. Bake at 425° F for about
12 to 15 minutes or until they just start to turn golden brown. Cool and
devour! Leftovers can be frozen and reheated.
