Cornbread Sausage Bites

My son loves mini cornbread muffins (made with the Sweet Yellow Muffin Mix with sliced hot dogs in them. So I figured, why not a grown up version with jalapeño sausage and Mexican cornbread? 
And instead of ketchup & mustard as the dips, we could use BBQ sauce and honey mustard. They turned out AMAZING. I ate about 5 all by myself. And surprisingly, these were not all that spicy. You could certainly kick the spice up by using a Pepper Jack cheese instead of sharp cheddar. 
Ingredients:
1 package jalapeño & cheddar fully-cooked sausage
1 (6 oz.) packet Martha White Mexican Cornbread Muffin Mix*
2/3 cup milk
1 large Eggland's Best egg, beaten
1 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
 Directions:
Preheat oven to 425f degrees. Spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray (note: this recipe makes 24 mini muffins.) Slice up sausages into 1-inch thick slices.
Combine cornbread mix with milk and egg.
 Stir in cheese.
Scoop up filling and begin filling muffin tin. I love these spring-loaded scoops. I have three different sizes of them and they make things like this SO easy. This one is a tablespoon size. I also have a 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup sizes. If there is one kitchen utensil you should own - it's these!
Place sausage slices on top of cornbread batter.
Bake for about 7-9 minutes (until golden brown)
Serve warm.
I served these with BBQ sauce and Honey Mustard. I actually liked the combination of the two sauces together. So good!
*Cook's Notes: You can use two packets of the cornbread mix (just double the milk and egg amounts). For this recipe, you'll only use about 3 sausages from this pack. If you double the recipe, the one pack of sausages will be enough for the doubled recipe.
