Ingredients you will need:
- 12 oz. spicy pork sausage
- 12 large eggs
- 4 oz. baby Portobello mushrooms (cleaned and chopped)
- 3 large green onions (thinly sliced, green portion only)
- 8 oz. four-cheese Mexican blend (finely shredded)
- salt and black pepper, to taste
- Non-stick cooking spray
Directions for Spicy Egg Breakfast Muffins
- Preheat oven to 350˚F.
- Chop sausage into bite-sized pieces in a large skillet. Cook the sausage over medium heat until it is no longer pink, approximately 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and carefully drain excess fat.
- Crack eggs into a large bowl and beat thoroughly with a fork. Add cooked sausage, Portobello mushrooms, green onion, and one half of the cheese blend. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Vigorously stir with a fork to combine.
- Spray 2 muffin tins thoroughly with non-stick cooking spray and scoop ¼ cup of egg mixture into the opening. (Batch yields approximately 16 muffins). When finished, top each cup with equal amounts of the remaining Mexican-blend cheese.
- Place muffin tins in preheated oven and bake for 20–25 minutes or until eggs are set. Remove from oven and cool slightly before removing from pan. Serve immediately or place in a freezer-safe container to freeze for later use. Enjoy!
NOTE: You can even switch out some of the spices and vegetables in this recipe if you prefer. You could add some spinach or possibly switch the four-cheese blend out for Jalapeno cheddar instead. So many options when making these fast and savory breakfast muffins
Questions you may ask…
Can you reheat egg muffins?
Yes, egg muffins will keep one week in the refrigerator or you can freeze them to eat at a later time.
Why do my egg muffins deflate?
As the air heats up, it expands, causing the bubbles. As they cool they deflate. The egg doesn’t have enough structure to hold the fluffy shape while cool.
