Default Sausage and Cheese Breakfast cups

These are REALLY good!


4 oz turkey sauage or crumbled turkey bacon
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
5 large eggs
1 12oz can sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup l/f shredded chedder cheese

preheat oven to 350. Line a muffin pan with baking cups. Cook the sausage, pepper, and onion for 5 min or until sausage is no longer pink. Spoon mixture into a bowl and let cool slightly. Stir in eggs and mushrooms. Divide evenly into muffin cups. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 20 min or until egg is set.



YOu can also spray the muffin tin and not use the baking papers....but they are better with the papers!
I make them at night about twice a week, they are great to pop in the microwave in the morning!

Thanks for this recipe, I made them today and they are great!

Note, it may be useful to know that as per the SBD recipe book, this recipe is for 6 muffins. Dummy me didn't know and I spread it out into 12 muffins (which seemed to work fine).

They are great! I made a batch and froze them two in a pack in saran wrap to take to work with me. I used turkey sausage and I too made them into 12 muffins so technically I am shorting myself LOL. Nah..I am good to go with 2 mini's and coffee.

I will try the southwestern egg beaters next time.

I substitute Egg Beaters for all shell eggs in these recipes. I also use the foil liners. They work MUCH better than the paper ones. I also change up the vegetables that I use each week. I have been making these each week since I started SBD on 7/19/04, and never get sick of this recipe!

Just a hint... I used to use paper, then tried the tin foil cups, they both were a lot of work to get at the muffins. I started spraying the cups (without paper) with Pam and when ready to eat I just take a fork and slide it around the edges and they pop out so easy! Clean up isn't that difficult either. Just be sure to wipe any excess off the top of the pan (around the muffins themselves.)

I made them today and they were ok. I think my turkey sausage was too sweet though. Maybe instead of a breakfast sausage, I will go with a sweet italian or even spicy.

I used spinach and mushrooms and added a dash of hot sauce to the egg. Pretty convenient.

I sprayed with PAM and they literally fell out of the muffin tin. My batch made 9 full muffins.

I made these today I didn't make them with the mushroom, green pepper or onion because I didn't have them on hand, plus I wanted my boyfriend to try them and he doesn't like those ingredients. They were fabulous! I used 5 eggs, 4oz turkey bacon and just a pinch of shredded cheddar on top of each. It yielded 9 for me. I these will be a regular for me and I will add the onions, peppers and mushrooms next time!
Highly recommended!

I thought these were good, however, I didn't like the texture of the canned mushrooms. Next time I'll probably sauteed fresh and substituted for the canned with some green peppers.

Definitely a good recipe to play around with the add-in's for variation.

I made egg cups using crumbled breakfast sausage and cheese only. Had my veg on the side. It nipped my cravings for a nasty greasy breakfast sandwich in the bud. They helped me survive through phase 1.

These sound delicious and I definitely want to try them! To those of you who microwave them in the morning, how long do you set the microwave to cook?

I just made these, but I used shredded turkey and sausage, along with 3 types of cheese to keep a variety in the freezer. Boy, do they really fluff up! I thought the cups looked a little low, but I popped them in the oven anyway. They came out looking, indeed, like little muffins! I don't know how they taste yet, as they're still cooling.
I have an over-abundance of eggs due to my 8 precious little hens (they lay about 14 every two days for 2 people... oh my...), so this may be a great way to use some of them up.

Default real sausage/bacon?

turkey bacon has a lot of salt, any idea if I cold use real sausage and cut the amount in half? would that work? or could use real bacon crumbles?

I am making these today but will do crumbled turkey bacon in it and not a fan of mushrooms so just peppers and onions and maybe spinach as have a bag of that I need to toss into something today (bought it super cheap so that means use or it will end up in the trash shortly!)
