Easy Egg Muffins with Sausage, Spinach, and Cheese

Josh is allergic to most 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.

  1. Have you ever tried making muffins with swiss chard, eggs, cheese, and a skosh of sautéed onions?  I layer the muffin tin with the chard, then put in the onion, followed with the egg and cheese.  I use one egg in each cup. I never thought of adding sausage. That will definitely put these over the top. I forgot to say that I lightly sautéed the Swiss Chard before using it to line the cups with it. Now, I am going to try your recipe.  Sounds yummy.

  2. Great recipe.  I just have to point out that you said someone is allergic to animals but is ok with chickens.  Are chickens not animals?

    1. I said he is allergic to most animals, but not chickens. Chickens are animals:)

  3. These look delicious! I’m on Weight Watchers and would like to know the nutritional value. Calories, Sat. Fat, Sugar, Protein. Thank you!j

  4. I use freeze dried meats and vegetables very often. I am disabled and cannot get out in bad weather, so this is a great way for me to always have healthy food available. I use freeze dried sausage crumbles, freeze dried red and green peppers, freeze dried onions and spinach in this recipe. It works really well and I can do this year round. I plan to try this with my freeze dried egg powder.

    This is a perfect recipe for an quick and easy breakfast.

  5. Every time I try and reheat egg muffins they turn out tough.  Please give me a tip for reheating.  I have to aci g guest stopping by soon and would love to be able to have these ready to get them in the road quickly. 

    1. Chef Alton Brown’s Overnight Cinnamon Rolls (completely awesome) recipe on Food Network calls for 4 large egg yolks. I found this recipe as I was searching to utilize the remaining whites (LOL).

  6. Hi Maria and Josh, I love your site, and pin from here regularly. I just wanted to let you know that pinterest deleted my pin from this page, notifying me that they had received a copyright complaint. The ‘offending’ photo was the 2nd from top on this page. Kind regards, Ann

    1. Weird, I just pinned it and it worked for me. We will watch it. Thanks for letting us know. Thanks for pinning our recipes!

  7. I know, right? I’ll leave for it for a few weeks, and repin it again. It would be just my luck I’d get banned for repeatedly breaching copyright. I’m finding that it is happening all over the web, even from a well known and highly respected home decor blogger. It must be something about all the best sites 🙂

    Definitely a pinterest glitch. Kind regards, Ann Johnson.

  8. I made these this morning using paper muffins cups. They were delicious but they stuck to the paper cup. I made them meatless so could that be the reason they stuck?  Any suggestions?

    1. Just made these delicious egg muffins and ate 3 already! I used kale and 4 small vegetarian sausages with the cheese; added a sprinkle of cajun spice and no extra salt. I used a silicone muffin pan and had no trouble with removal after a few minutes of cooling. Great recipe, thank you!

  9. Nice photo, and I like the idea, but just received a notice that you requested the pin for this to be removed from Pinterest. What’s up with that?

    1. I just realized the comments go from oldest/youngest, so I now see that it’s an ongoing issue.

    2. It is a mistake with Pinterest. I reported the problem. Please keep pinning our recipes, we really appreciate it!

  10. I saved this to my Pinterest board some time back and was surprised today to receive an email from Pinterest advising that they had removed my pin because you did not want your content being saved to Pinterest. Why are Pinterest buttons included on the page if you don’t want your content to be saved on Pinterest?

  11. Hi, I recently purchased a muffin pan that is microwavable and would love to try this recipe out using my new pan. Do you know how I might change the cooking time to prepare these in a microwave instead? Thanks.

  12. 5 stars
    Quick, easy and versatile. Just what I needed. I make these with frozen stir fry veggies, mozz chz, turkey bacon and of course eggs. I amde enough for the week. I can grab and go with no thought of what to eat for breakfast.

  13. 5 stars
    Very good no problem with sticking. Just spray and no paper linings. But they always deflate. Why? Lol look greasy when I first take them out.

  14. 5 stars
    Not only were these absolutely delicious but they looked amazing as well. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I will definitely be making these again.
