Easy Breakfast Egg & Sausage "Muffins"

I’ve got another recipe to share that has helped to make mornings easier around here.

The recipe is one that our intern at work found and made for a volunteer’s appreciation brunch. He told me what was in it and I’ll admit, I didn’t like the sound of it.
 

The ingredients are pretty basic: Eggs, Milk, Cheese, Sausage (or ham, or bacon), and stuffing mix. Yeah, that last one threw me too.  But let me tell you, it was good. Like REALLY good.

Originally, it’s made as a casserole, but I thought it might be kind of fun (and time saving) to try out single serving sized “muffins.”

Mornings are so hectic around here, and I almost never eat breakfast before leaving the house. If I do, it’s usually gulping down a bowl of cereal and half a cup of coffee while I’m doing my makeup.

Now I just grab a couple “muffins” from the freezer and heat them up at work so I have a hot breakfast when I’m ready to eat it.

The recipe is really easy, and you know how I like easy! You just throw the ingredients together, pour the mixture into greased muffin pans, and bake.

Seasoned Egg & Sausage Muffins
makes about 12-18 “muffins,” depending on your how much you fill the cups
6 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups breakfast sausage, cooked, drained and crumbled
2 cups dry stuffing mix
1/2 tsp salt
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Prep your muffin pans by greasing them generously with cooking spray.
3. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.
(notes: I used a box of Stove Top Sage Stuffing Mix. The box is exactly two cups. For the sausage, I used half of a bulk package – not links).
4. Scoop mixture into individual muffin tins. (I didn’t measure it out, but it’s about 1/2 a cup). I wasn’t sure how the eggs would puff up, so I didn’t want to overfill.
5. Place muffins pans into the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. I started checking them after about 17 minutes. I knew they were done when I inserted a knife and it came out clean, and they were a nice, golden brown.
6. Allow to cool slightly, transfer to plates, and serve with breakfast breads and fruit.
My son (who isn’t a huge fan of eggs) chowed down two of them. The seasonings are perfect.
Try it out – I bet you’ll like it too!
For breakfast on the go: Place muffins in a labeled freezer bag. Wrap in a paper towel and pop them in the microwave for about a minute. Perfect for a hot breakfast, and so much better than cereal!

    I was *just* thinking this morning as I was running out the door that I needed a fast, hot breakfast option so I could avoid the fast food stop. Definitely going to try these!

    Ok I have to admit the stuffing kind of threw me there, but they do look really good. I will have to give them a try.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I cooked these they were very simple to make & SO yummy!!!
    I found this recipe on food gawker & made it exactly as the recipe says. I cooked these for my hubby to take to work since he has to leave at 4:30 a.m. for work & he is tired of fast food breakfasts. We all sampled one & they were delicious. I wouldn’t change anything in this recipe.
    Also, I used a generic brand of stuffing that was the Pork flavor (I couldn’t find Sage).
    I froze the rest & am hoping that they will microwave great.

    Made them this morning – SO delicious, and very filling (and from how I calculated my calories – pretty healthy too!). I threw the rest in the freezer – can’t wait to try them tomorrow morning for breakfast from frozen. Thanks for the recipe!

    Do you use the seasoning packet that is in the stuffing mix box? I’m thinking you do but want to make sure. Hope you will answer this before next weekend as I want to make them for church breakfast. Thanks

    Just made these to try…they were so delicious! My husband ate three in about two minutes. I used the chicken Stove Top mix and chicken apple breakfast sausage. It was all so good together! Can’t wait to freeze em and eat more tomorrow! Thank you!
