Breakfast Egg Sausage Protein Muffins

Introducing you to our favorite hot breakfast!  

Most mornings are quick here! I like to make sure my men are well fed for their days. This is the most requested breakfast in our home. Seriously, they ask for the "Egg Bake" or the Egg Bake Muffins! :) Isn't that cute! I'm always happy to whip these up. They freeze well and they keep in the refrigerator - but never long. 

These are really simple to make and your family will love them. We have added spinach and cheddar cheese to mix it up. I'll share my recipe here so you can enjoy! 

Add a little Goat Cheese with Herbs. :) 

Breakfast Egg Sausage Protein Muffins

12 eggs 
1/2 cup half and half (or favorite milk)
Sea salt and black pepper 
Cayenne (if desired, add a few dashes)
1 pound breakfast sausage 
1 medium yellow onion 
1 1/2 multi-colors bell peppers chopped
1 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese (or favorite cheese)

Preheat oven to 375  
Line muffin tins with my favorite new silicone muffin cups

In grill pan on stove, sauté sausage, onion and peppers; set aside. In mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half and salt and peppers. 

Spoon the sausage mixture into the muffin cups evenly, usually covers the bottom of the muffin cups. Then, pour egg mixture into the muffin cups evenly, fill about 3/4 full; and then sprinkle cheese on top of each egg muffin. 

Bake for about 20-25 minutes. They will be puffed up, they settle down when cooled in pan. Then, they can easily be removed from the silicone cups and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. They can be frozen in a freezer bag and warmed up in the oven in the mornings. 

Hope you enjoy and please let me know if you have questions! Bon appetite!

Warmly, Carolina Mama
