Easy Egg Muffins with Sausage, Spinach, and Cheese

Josh is allergic to animals so we don’t have a dog or cat. Instead, we have six chickens. Virginia, Caramel, Daisy, Mae, Midnight, and Pepper are part of our family. They live outside in their coop and are easy to take care of. They are the best pets.

Caleb loves visiting his chickens. He feeds them, chases them, and even holds them. He also loves gathering their eggs. Last week we were overflowing with fresh eggs so Josh made Egg Muffins with Sausage, Spinach, and Cheese for breakfast.

If you like frittatas, you will love these egg muffins. Egg muffins are like frittatas, just smaller. Instead of making a large frittata in a pan, you make the eggs in a muffin pan. The egg muffins are easy to make and I love that everyone gets their own individual mini frittata.

 Our chickens lay pretty eggs:) To make the egg muffins lighter, Josh used five egg whites and two whole eggs.

He also added lean turkey sausage, spinach, and sharp cheddar cheese. Feel free to add your favorite egg fixin’s. Mix things up by using your favorite veggies, cheese, or whatever you have on hand! This recipe is very flexible.

Egg Muffins with Sausage, Spinach, and Cheese are the perfect breakfast. You get your protein, veggies, and dairy all in one little muffin! If your weekday mornings are hectic and you don’t have time to make breakfast, make these egg muffins on Sunday. You can reheat them in the microwave on your way out the door!

Thanks to our chickens we had fresh eggs to make Egg Muffins with Sausage, Spinach, and Cheese. Our chickens really are the best pets!

3 lean breakfast turkey sausage links

2 whole eggs
1/4 cup skim milk
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium skillet, brown the turkey sausage links on medium-high heat. Cook until sausage is brown all the way through. Cut sausage into 1/2 inch pieces. Set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg whites and eggs. Whisk in skim milk and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in the chopped spinach.

    How many whole eggs (total) would you use if replacing the egg whites?

    • Two Peas replied: — January 10th, 2014 @ 11:01 am

      If you don’t want to use egg whites, use 6 whole eggs.

    Can you tell me if you can freeze these muffins? And just pull them out of the freezer the night before and reheat on microwave on no stick pan. I have a diva of a daughter that won’t have cereal on cold winter months :( Thanks.

    • Two Peas replied: — January 10th, 2014 @ 11:01 am

      We haven’t tried freezing them yet, but I am sure they would freeze just fine!

    Would love to have chickens but found a snake in the nest one time when I was young and never liked to gather the eggs after that.

    OMGee… love that you have chickens. My best friend growing up had chickens. She kept them in the front yard in their chicken coop. We use to go out there all the time and take care of them. Too fun! :) These egg muffins or mini frittatas look delicious! It was one of my husbands and I’s favorite breakfast treats! Pinning!

    I loved collecting eggs from my parents garden when growing up. Trying to find them was so much fun! Especially when they were still warm. It’s an experience in itself :)
    My kids love doing the same when we do get to visit their grandparents. Thanks for sharing brought back some awesome memories!

    These look delicious. I have made them before with different toppings. I had trouble cleaning my pan, so I am glad to see paper muffin cups are OK. Just so everyone knows, they also freeze very well. I made different varieties for my family and we each microwaved our favorites.

    I would also freeze and take to work for lunch. They were defrosted by lunch.

    Does it work as well with Egg Beaters or another egg substitute?
