  • 12 Johnsonville original breakfast sausage links
  • 3 Cups frozen country-style hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon pepper

Muffin Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Muffin Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
