Spicy Sausage and Egg Breakfast Muffins Recipe

This is a great “make ahead” breakfast idea for those busy mornings when you don’t have time to cook a healthy meal. The best part is you can freeze a batch of them, then pull out as many as you need for a healthy, on-the-go breakfast option.

sausage muffin ingredientsThe key to this recipe is to choose the best ingredients. Make sure you use only fresh bell pepper, onions and eggs.

The extra sharp cheddar cheese makes a long “whey” when it’s melted, which makes it excellent for cooking and baking.

cooked sausageAlso make sure you cook the sausage all the way through and break it into small bite-sized pieces.

muffin batter with shredded cheeseIt can be tricky to shred a block of cheese as it gets sticky and starts to melt as you shred. So it’s best to put the cheese in the freezer for 15 minutes before shredding.
