Ok; these may not be the most beautiful muffins around but they sure are tasty; and I’m all for a quick and easy breakfast!
Breakfast On The Go Muffins

½ medium size onion chopped finely
salt & pepper

1 cup mild shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup maple flavored pancake syrup
In a large skillet brown sausage and onion until fully cooked and slightly caramelized.
Season to taste.

Stir in shredded cheese, syrup, and sausage mixture.
Spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray. No paper liners necessary.
Spoon about 1/8 of a cup to 3 tablespoons of muffin batter into each of 20 muffin cups.

To serve remove plastic wrap and wrap muffin in a paper towel.
Microwave 40 to 70 seconds on high (depending on your microwave and size of muffin).
Enjoy a hot breakfast on the go!
I think next time I might just add a little red and green bell pepper in there with the onion! Oh! Maybe spice it up a bit with jalapeno too.
