I'm not a huge breakfast person...Except for when we have breakfast for dinner! As a kid, it was always super exciting when Mom would mix things up and make a fun breakfast at 6pm! And it meant that I didn't have to eat vegetables that night, which is probably the real reason that it was so exciting. Now with a family of my own to cook for, we keep this fun little tradition going by having breakfast for dinner about once a month or so!
This week we made Sausage, Egg and Cheese muffins. This recipe came from my Aunt Mary, who is just such a fabulous cook! Now, I'm not a big fan of eggs, so when she told me about this little concoction when we were visiting a few years ago I wasn't all that excited. But Holy Goodness!! These things are DELICIOUS! My family watched in amazement as I quickly scarfed down 4 of these things! (I was training for a marathon at the time - don't judge!)
Anyway...Hope you enjoy!
What you'll need:
1 lb Ground Sausage (I like the maple kind, but you can use whatever!)
1 Can of Flaky Biscuits
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
First, cook your sausage and drain. The sausage will need to cool a bit once its cooked.
While the Sausage is cooking/cooling, beat the 5 eggs and add 1 cup of cheddar cheese.
Next, tear the biscuits in half (this is why you need the flaky kind), stretch them out and make a little bowl in the muffin tin.
Now that the sausage is cooled, add it to the egg/cheese mixture. If it's not cooled the sausage will cook the eggs, and we don't want that!
Fill each biscuit bowl with the Sausage/Egg/Cheese mixture
And Bake according to the biscuit package instructions! I baked these on 400 degrees for about 8 minutes!
