Egg Muffins with Sausage, Bacon and Spinach
A few weeks ago I posted a photo of these egg muffins on social media and a lot of people seemed to like it. I actually made and posted these on a whim. I am in no way a recipe creator or food blogger (yet) but I do like making dishes that are easy and taste good.
I made these late one night as an attempt to call myself meal prepping which I am terrible at, but they ended up being a hit for me and my family. I'd been seeing egg muffin recipes all over Pinterest so I decided to give them a go on my own.
Sorry guys I won't have a bunch of step by step recipe photos, once again not a food blogger. But I am going to tell you exactly how I made them incase you want to try some for yourself.
I wanted this recipe to be super fast and easy so I used pre-cooked meats. You could cook your own and I'm sure it would be just as good or better.
(makes about 9 egg muffins)
6 Large Eggs
5 Pre-cooked Applegate Farms sausage links
4 Pre-cooked slices of bacon
2 Cups of chopped spinach
1 Tablespoon of real butter
Salt and Pepper for taste
Shredded Cheese (optional I did not use in these)
Pre-heat the oven to 350, coat your muffin pan with the cooking spray and set it to the side.
Slice up the sausage links and cook them for a few minutes to warm them through. This is especially important if they are frozen.
Chop up the slices of bacon, no need to preheat them.
Place the eggs in a large bowl and whisk them until the yolks and whites are mixed together completely. Mix in the desired amount of salt and pepper.
Place the sausage and bacon into the eggs, and mix it well. You want to make sure there will be some of everything in each muffin when you pour it.
Take the egg mixture and begin pouring it into the muffin pan. You only need to fill each tin about halfway full the eggs will expand as they cook. You could also use a spoon to fill the tins.
Once you have poured all of your egg mixture, take the chopped spinach and place some of it into each muffin and mix it around a little with a fork. At this point you can also top the muffins with cheese if you desire to use it.
Bake the muffins for about 20-25 minutes until they are cook through and that's it. If you aren't eating these right away, consider cooking them for a shorter time. This way when you reheat them in the microwave they won't be dried out.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe, let me know if you try it out.
