When I plan a meal, I like to have a balance of “opposites”. For instance, if I have a savory dish, I will also serve something with a little sweetness or a rich dish with something a little bland. Some things just go together. A rich braised meat goes well with polenta, spicy shrimp with a sweet mango salsa, or peanut butter with jelly!
When I made the Easy Sausage, Hashbrowns and Egg Casserole, it was so delicious and had some great flavors such as the spicy sausage going on.
I wanted to balance it out with a sweet bakery item. Boy did I! I found this recipe for Glazed Apple Crumb Muffins. One bite and you knew that you had bitten into decadence.
It was like apple crisp and cinnamon roll got together and had a baby apple cinnamon roll muffin. It was all I could do to keep myself from moaning and rolling my eyes.
I was in bakery heaven. The yummy flavor just went on and on. This muffin complimented my egg casserole perfectly and may make a return visit over one of the holidays.
