Breakfast Cups

I’m not a morning person so breakfast can be a struggle. I love an easy recipe that make for a quick breakfast. These sausage egg muffins are the best for busy mornings. They are filled with sausage, potatoes, onions, bell peppers and cheese and eggs.

This recipe uses simple ingredients and thats often the best way to make a perfect breakfast. What’s so great about this recipe is you really don’t need a recipe at all. You can customize it to your own likes. You can even let kids put their own mix-ins since they are individual muffins. These are basically mini quiches just without the crust.

These sausage egg cups also hold up great for a few days and freeze well. They work well for meal prepping for the week.

Sausage Egg Muffins Ingredients

Sausage Egg Muffin Ingredients

  • 10 Eggs

  • 1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

You will also need a muffin pan and cooking spray.

How to make sausage egg muffins

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a standard size muffin pan. I use a nonstick cooking spray.

In each muffin tin cup add a heaping spoonful of home fries. Next layer in cooked sausage.

In a medium sized bowl whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper together and then pour egg mixture evenly into each cup. Fill up each cup about 85-90% the egg mixture will expand in the oven.

Sprinkle the top with shredded cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the egg is cooked through.
