Do you enjoy sweet and salty food?  You will love these Sweet Potato Bacon Sausage Muffins.  Perfect for breakfast, brunch or a snack.

I added manly meat, bacon & sausage, as my son Casey would say to my sweet potato muffin to my sweet potato muffins.  As you know from some of my other posts, that Casey is my meat and potatoes teenager. He will eat other foods, but he is not happy if I do not have at least one meat and some potatoes prepared.  These muffins are packed with savory chunks of meat.  They passed the Casey test.  Next, I think I am going to put some meat in my “girly scones” as he would say.

If you have a picky meat and potatoes eater who believes muffins are for girls, try these extremely moist, savory, sweet muffins for breakfast and see what they think.

I was excited to find out that when I entered these muffins to be in a Taste of Home cookbook, they chose them.  My Sausage and Sweet Potato Muffins were published on page 123 in the hardcover of Taste of Home Holiday & Celebrations 2011 cookbook.  When preparing the muffins to post, I added another of Casey’s favorite thing which is bacon.  The combination of sausage and bacon with the sweet potato is so good that Casey ate 4 of them for breakfast.

  1. I believe my husband and kids would LOVE these, but they do not like pumpkin/sweet potato. What would be a good sub for that, so I get the same texture? Applesauce or pear?
    Thank you and God bless you!

    • I have only made these muffins with pumpkin and sweet potato. I would hate to recommend something that I have not tried.
      If you try something else that works, please let me know.
