Instructions for Egg Muffin Cups:
First, as always, prep your ingredients. Some people will need to cook the sausage, shred the cheese, and dice the onions.
However, others may only need to dice the onions and pre-cooked sausage.
Either way, make sure to get everything prepped before you get started. Next, spray a twelve (12) cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Once that's out of the way, grab a large glass mixing bowl and whisk the eggs. After that, add the rest of the ingredients.
Then, when the sausage, eggs, onions, cheese, salt, and pepper are all in the bowl, give everything a quick stir to combine it all together.
At this point, it's time to transfer the egg mixture to your pan.
Using a one-third (⅓) sized measuring cup, scoop the egg mixture from the bowl to your muffin tin. Take a look at the photo below as a reference.
Last, place the egg muffin cups into your oven to bake for about twenty (20) minutes, or until the eggs are done.
They will need to cool for about five (5) minutes before you remove them from the pan.
That's it, your sausage cheese and egg muffin cups are done.
Personally, I would serve them with a hearty side dish like cheese grits. It would make for a filling breakfast.
Sausage Cheese and Egg Muffin Cups Recipe Tips:
If you don't care for sausage links, then feel free to substitute them out for cooked, crumbled breakfast sausage.
Speaking of substitutions, one of the best qualities of this recipe is that you can adapt or modify the filling all you want. For example, I prefer ham, green peppers, and Spanish onion over sausage and green onion.
So, it shouldn't surprise anyone that I would make those changes. In other words, experiment and make something you really enjoy.
No muffin tin, no problem! These egg muffins can be baked in just about any oven-safe dish. Now, they won't be adorable breakfast muffins, but at least you'll get to the enjoy the dish.
