Sausage & Egg Muffins
Who doesn’t love eggs and sausages in the morning… but do you really have time on a Tuesday morning while you’re running around the house trying to get ready for work to whip up a full breakfast? Yea… I didn’t think so.
These are perfect for breakfast, and great for a lunch. It takes about 20 minutes to prep, 25 to bake and you have easy breakfasts or lunches for the week. Meal prep at its finest! Now you can really add just about anything you want to these, but this sausage, onion and pepper combination is my personal favourite!
These muffins only require two sausages, and since they come in a pack of five, rather then freezing them I went ahead and mad Italian Stuffed Peppers. The best part about these individual muffins? You can freeze them! You’re not stuck eating them all week if you don’t want. Freeze the rest for later… and pop into the toaster oven to re-heat at a later date. #MomWin
- 2 Italian Sausages
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/3 cup onion, diced
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1/2 cup red pepper, diced
- 1/2 cup orange pepper, diced
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided equally
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a non-stick frying pan, crumble sausage and cook until no longer pink. Remove from heat when done.
- Meanwhile, in a large pan, whisk together eggs, milk and baking powder until frothy.
- Add spices, vegetables and 1/2 cup cheese. Mix well. Add cooked sausage.
- Pour into a greased muffin tin (hint: use a soup ladle to fill each space).
- Top with remaining cheese and bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until tops are golden.
This is a great source of protein and will help start your morning off right. You can easily pack these for lunch and add a slice of toast or a side salad to help round out the meal. One hour of cooking makes your week just that much easier and who doesn’t like that? If you want to save some for later, or breakfast on the go, wrap each in cellophane wrap (tightly) and place in a freezer bag. They are perfect to grab out of the freezer when you’re on the way out of the door. They will be defrosted by about the time you get to work!
Brilliant idea. Might make as above or substitute sausage for bacon. Need ways to increase protein at the moment.
This looks so good! I was just telling my husband we need to make a few things that we can bake in advance and then warm up for breakfast. These would be great for that!
These look so good! And everyone in my family would love them.
I love these. I made a similar recipe over Christmas when my kids were hope so that they could eat whenever they were up and ready. They were so easy and convenient and delicious!
I struggle to keep the outsides from getting too brown when I make these. I do like them though!
Your sausage muffins look yummy. I make something similar with bacon and small pieces of chopped ham.
These little muffins look so good! I see Kim’s comment about bacon, I bet that would be delicious as well.
Yum! I love making egg muffins and this recipe sounds perfect. Thanks so much for sharing at Inspiration Thursday. See you at the next party!
