Breakfast Muffins: All the Best Parts of Breakfast in One Little Cupcake!

These breakfast muffins are super simple to make, and they really have something for everyone! They are perfect for breakfast-lovers, and those who are eating a low carb or gluten free diet.

You will need:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2-3/4 cup of shredded cheese of your choice (I used cheddar)
  • 6 strips of bacon
  • 6 sausage patties
  • Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)

I will admit, I used pre-cooked bacon and sausage for this recipe, but raw will work as well. Just be sure to check that everything is fully cooked before eating!

This recipe makes approximately 6 muffins. I ended up with a little bit of egg mixture left over, so I added a seventh muffin to the tin. 

To make, lightly spray your muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix your eggs and cheese together in a large bowl, along with the dash of pepper, or other seasonings as desired. Press the sausage patties into the bottom of each muffin tin, and wrap the bacon strip around the edges (it's okay if the bacon is sitting on top of the sausage patty, rather than wrapping all the way around the edge of it). Then, pour your egg and cheese mixture into the muffin tins. Because the egg will rise as it bakes, you only need to fill each tin about half way.

Sprinkle cheese on top if desired, and pop in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, and enjoy!

This was a really great and simple breakfast food that was filling and easy to make. They would also probably be good with the addition of peppers or mushrooms to the egg mixture.
