I made these and put them in the freezer for DD and SIL. They loved them! After defrosting them in the microwave, they popped them into the toaster oven and lightly toasted them giving them a nice crunch. The recipe is super easy and I used a very lean bulk sausage which produced virtually no grease, the onions were added when the sausage was almost done and the eggs were beaten and poured into the pan on top of the cooked sausage. These are something I would make again.
Loved these! I used bacon instead of sausage, but other than that followed the recipe. This was very quick to make up this morning, even making extras for the freezer. If they reheat anywhere near as good as they were fresh, then these will definitely be have a place in my OAMC plans!
My kids love these...I make a very similar recipe myself. My kids are sausage mcmuffin fans so I will do those up ahead as well and freeze.
