My husband was looking for an easy high protein breakfast, so I came up with these.......I make a batch and freeze them and he puts a couple in the microwave on his way out the door in the morning.
- 8 eggs
- 1⁄2 lb sausage or 1⁄2 lb hamburger meat
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper
- bell pepper, mushrooms, onions, spinach
- Brown and drain meat. Beat eggs in bowl. Add meat, cheese, salt, pepper, and optional ingredients. Mix. Pour into greased full size muffin pan 2/3 full. Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Use toothpick to check for doneness.
I make these with 12 eggs and a whole pound of sausage, so makes about 18. A favorite. So easy to take and go!
I doubled the recipe to make 24 of these bad boys and OH! Heaven in your mouth! !! Filling, Flavorful, PERFECT! Definitely add mushrooms and onions for added flavor! If you chop the onions and mushrooms fine and then saute them with the mushrooms, you get a bready consistency which makes for a more realistic muffin look. Definitely going to make these a weekly staple!
I am on Atkins induction so I made a batch of these for a good no-carb breakfast. One batch has lasted me a whole week! I top them off with Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce and YUM! ?? Easy and good!
