Egg “Muffins”

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com, and I guess these are kind of like frittatas or omelets made in muffin tins. They’re very versatile in the fillings that you can put in them. I’ve done regular onions and green onions–I feel like the green onions provide a little bit of flavor without a slightly crunchy texture. I’ve done regular sausage and turkey sausage. I’m thinking of trying ham and cheese next time. Oh, and last time I cooked the peppers. I like that there weren’t slightly crunchy peppers in there like when you put them in raw, but the flavor didn’t seem as strong when it was cooked.

These egg muffins are wonderful to make ahead and eat for a few days from the fridge and then freeze the remaining. I like to make a double batch so I can use a whole pound of sausage and so I can have lots to freeze. If I warm them from the fridge, I just microwave them for a minute. And when I freeze them, I generally put two in a sandwich bag (I don’t bother with fancy freezer bags because I know we’ll eat them quickly). Then when I microwave the frozen ones, I put a paper towel around them (optional) and microwave them at 50% power for 2 minutes, then 1 minute on 100% power.

And this one is naturally gluten free.

Egg Muffins

  • Servings: 12
  • Difficulty: easy-medium
  • Print


Make ahead for a very easy breakfast.

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. Sausage
  • 12 Eggs
  • ½ c. Onion or Green Onion, chopped
  • ½ c. Bell Pepper, chopped
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Black Pepper
  • ¼ tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½ c. Shredded Cheddar cheese (plus optional cheese to top)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° and grease a muffin tin. In a large pan, cook the sausage over medium-high heat until it’s browned evenly and crumbly. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Stir in onion, bell pepper, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Add sausage and cheese. Use a 1/3 cup (maybe a Tbsp. less) to fill each muffin cup, not quite all the way to the top. Optionally top with an additional small amount of cheese. Bake about 20-25 minutes, until a knife comes out clean from inserting into the muffins.
