We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day- especially true if you are embarking on a full day of running errands or even ball games with kids. This recipe is especially good and convenient when my son is off to school and he can grab a couple from the fridge, pops them in the microwave for a few seconds and he’s out the door, eating them as he goes!
Breakfast of Champions: Scrambled Egg Muffins
- 1 lb. pork sausage
- 16 eggs
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a skillet, brown the sausage; drain. In a bowl, beat the eggs. Add onion, green pepper, garlic salt, and pepper. Stir in cheese and sausage. Spoon by 1/3 cupfuls into greased muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Note: This is a recipe that you can change to make a bit healthier. Instead of adding 1lb. of sausage, use 1/2 lb. of sausage and as for the eggs, you can add 8 egg whites and 8 whole eggs instead of 16 whole eggs. You can also add sauteed spinach to pack in added nutrients.
There are so many modifications you could make to suit your personal taste- use ham instead of sausage (or even leave out the meat altogether), sub red peppers for the green, fancy them up by using goat cheese…the possibilities are endless.
If you give these a shot, report back and let me know how you made them your own!
