Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but as a busy mother and wife, sometimes it is hard to get that meal in. With just a few ingredients, these sausage, egg and cheese muffins are great to make up in advance and reheat for those mornings on the go.
I have to admit that I am that mother who lived on coffee until lunch time everyday. I always had excuses as to why I never fueled my body first thing in the morning, and it was mostly because I was always to busy.
I recently changed my lifestyle and went to a sugar-free low carb lifestyle and started taking better care of my body. This meant that I needed to start eating a healthy breakfast each morning and that I needed to come up with a variety of recipes.
Some of the recipes needed to be quick meal options for those busy mornings. This recipe is quick to make, taste delicious and is a healthy breakfast option.
How to Make Sausage, Egg and Cheese Muffins for a Low Carb Breakfast
The first step is to brown your one pound of sausage and season it unless it is already seasoned. It is extremely hard to find sausage without added sugar so we generally have a hog butchered and the ground pork left plain.
1 lb sausage
1 tsp celtic salt
1 tsp ground sage
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp marjoram
1/4 tsp paprika
Next step is to crack the eggs. In our family of six, we use 15 eggs to make 12 muffin cups.
Then I grate up a block of cheese and add half of it to the eggs. Whip up the eggs and cheese really well. Drain the sausage and then add it to the egg and cheese mixture.
Fill the muffin pan with about 1/3 cup of the mixture and place them in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Once finished baking, allow them to cool and enjoy!
Stoneware Muffin Tin
I own the Pampered Chef muffin tin and I absolutely love cooking with the natural stoneware. They aren’t cheap but I find that it is well worth what I had invested in it. There are some other options like this one, or this one. However, I have only used the Pampered Chef. The natural stoneware cleans much easier than the tin muffin pans.
