Broccoli & Italian Sausage Egg Muffins
Boy, do I love carb-free meals! These are perfect for breakfast, snack, and easy to take on the go! I made 2 batches for my husband and I ,and they lasted almost 2 weeks! Super easy & super delicious. I'm not a huge fan of breakfast as is, but these were perfect to take to work, pop in the microwave, and fill me up till lunch.
Here are the ingredients:
1 pound Italian Sausage (I like the spicy sausage)
1 1/2 cup broccoli florets
8 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp baking powder
salt & pepper to taste
Red pepper flakes (if you like more spice)Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
And here are the very easy cooking instructions:
First go ahead and pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the Italian sausage until lightly brown. It took me about 8 minutes to get it completely not pink. (The picture below, still pink ;)
When fully cooked, remove from the heat and add in the broccoli
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, oil and baking powder.
Next, lightly spray a cupcake pan (I used a 12-cupcake pan)
and start filling each hole with the broccoli and sausage mix.
Next, ladle the egg mixture over the broccoli and sausage filling each hole to the top.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Bake 15-20 min. Serve hot or pop 'em in a container and save for the week. :-)
