Savory Sunrise Muffins

"I made this on on a whim, and we loved it! I used a muffin tin, but this would work even better with ramekins. This is not at all a fussy recipe. Your dough doesn't have to precise, and don't fret if you can't quite tuck the top dough in the cups. Just do the best you can, and it will still come out great!"

    My family's new favorite! It is so easy to make and it looks so impressive when finished. I have had it for company, too, and they raved about it. I typically crumble cooked sausage (left over from another breakfast, usually) in the bottom instead of ham. For vegetarians in my family, I put fresh spinach. I have also put a dollop of salsa in them. Like I is a favorite, so we have had it many times...and plan on having it many more. Yummy! Thanks for posting.
