I got this recipe from a magazine. It's very easy to make and is great for any meal. Kids love them.
- 1⁄2 lb pork sausage
- 12 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- Brown sausage; drain well.
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- In a bowl, beat eggs, then add onion, green peppers, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
- Stir in sausage and cheese.
- Spoon 1/3 cupfuls into greased muffin cups.
- Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
We really enjoyed these little gems! I used chopped ham in place of the sausage -- just a personal preference that my family has. I also sauteed the onion (I used green onion) and bell peppers and then added the ham for a couple minutes as well. I might pump up the garlic powder a little bit the next time I make these. I also went a little heavy on the cheese. I baked these in my silicone muffin pans and they fell right out after baking. I did increase the baking time to about 30 minutes. I wrapped the leftover ones and have them in the freezer -- plus I did reheat one yesterday morning and it turned out great -- just about 20-25 seconds in the microwave. I think you could also add some chopped brocolli or shredded zucchini -- or even some hash browns to these. Thank you, Nicole for posting this recipe.
These are terrific!!! They have transformed our breakfast rush into a calm and peaceful dance!! Best of all they take about a minute in the microwave to go from frozen to a hot brekky!! I have used pork, italian, farmers,and turkey sausage. I have added 1/2 c. frozen hash browns to the mix as well as many different kinds of cheeses. We love these muffins and they are a nice change from the usual breakfast fare. Thank you for sharing!
I made this for a Fathers Day potluck at church today. I originally found the recipe in one of my mothers cookbooks and copied it down. They went over great I even got asked for the recipe. Next time I might try bacon or ham.
