These egg and sausage muffins are the perfect on-the-go healthy breakfast or even snack. You might like eggs in the morning but typically don't cook them on work days because of time. But the egg muffins are even something you can make ahead of time and will be a much healthier option than grabbing a banana or granola bar and heading out the door.
Packed with protein, veggies and healthy fat it makes a well balanced meal to keep you full, satisfied, and with sustainable energy throughout your morning. Plus they are gluten-free and dairy-free if you don't add cow's cheese.
I LOVE the fact that the extra egg muffins keep well in the fridge. You just grab a couple out of the fridge in the morning, heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds, and off you go! A great breakfast (or snack) idea to meal prep and have on hand throughout the busy week.
Get creative with what vegetables or other items you add in. I love onions, peppers, broccoli, spinach, and even a little cheese or goat cheese on top. You could also add veggies like zucchini, asparagus, mushrooms, tomatoes.
If you don't like breakfast sausage, try crumbled bacon, ground turkey or deli turkey meat. Or of course you don't have to add any meat at all. There are many possibilities to make them your own. Enjoy!
