Loved it! Great idea! I've made this a few times now and tried it once with sage sausage! Yum!

These tasted good - but very messy to make. The grease overflowed, as stated by another reviewer, and the sausage shrank inwards, leaving no room for the egg. Maybe I did something wrong, but I won't be making these again - I have to go scrub my muffin tin now.

Be very careful - the grease from the sausage overflowed and nearly set off the smoke alarm. I turned the temp down to 350, increased the cooking time and "mopped" the grease out of each cup with a papertowel. Other than that, the end result is great and there were very easy to make.
