Cajun Sausage and hash browns Muffins

Most Cajuns will eat sausage any way it’s cooked. Fried, saute, baked, stuffed in a duck, smoked, boiled or just about any way you can cook it. I especially like pan sausage cooked just about any way it’s done. This recipe is a great way to make sausage into a great breakfast. If you make too many that’s OK. They are great to snack on later.
