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.

  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.

  1. I wonder if Jimmy Dean cooked turkey crumbles would work with this? May not taste as well, but a time saver. Thanks! Millie.

  2. Can’t wait to try. Always looking for new way to cook eggs or omelette which usually has spinach, cheese, & bacon and other veggies.

  3. Do you put the english muffins in the bottom of the muffin tins? Recipe does not list the muffins or refer to them except to remove them from the muffin tins. Can you clarify?

  4. How long should you reheat them for? I made these tonight and they’re great, hoping to use them as quick breakfasts for work.

  5. How are these served at room temperature or slightly cold? I am helping to make food for a wedding shower where we are serving a continental breakfast. These strike me as an easy way to serve eggs, but we are not messing with preparing the food at the venue or serving hot food items.

  6. I have made these a few times but gave up because I had a devil of a time cleaning the muffin tin afterwards. I actually had to throw one away! I tried paper liners, which didn’t want to peel off the muffins. Any suggestions? I tried decreasing heat and that didn’t help.

  7. SO I made these a few minutes ago with fresh eggs from my “girls” and they taste amazing. However, I poured them in muffin liners because I am using stoneware and wasn’t sure if I should cook eggs directly in them. When I peeled them out of the liners most of them were hollow at the center, almost like I made muffin tops instead of muffins. Any ideas?

  8. How do you keep the egg muffins from sticking and make sure they come out easily? They were absolutely delicious, but I had to cut the eggs out of the muffin tin, then soak the tin overnight and scrub for 20 minutes to get out the eggy remainders!

  9. I just made these using 6 whole eggs and used Italian spicy sausage. They came out perfect! I sprayed the muffin tin lightly with vegetable spray, the muffins slid right out of the tin.

  10. Yum! That looks delicious. Could I use all whole eggs rather than some eggs + some egg whites? How would I go about that? 8 whole eggs?
    Thank you for the recipe. I can’t wait to try it with feta cheese and maybe some chopped peppers. 🙂

  11. Funny how many comment on having chickens like that was the subject of the above recipe. Love attention spans 😛 …. The eggs were awesome. I would advise anyone who makes these to ensure they spread out in more than 6, I spread into 12 and they expanded. Hat to think if I would have confined them to only 6. I would be scrapping it off the bottom of the oven. Thanks for the recipe. Next time I will add more veggies.

  12. These look ideal and delicious! I do have a question though to rose that make n eat them ~ are the eggs completely cooked? I’m sqeemish of slimy eggs. Would really like to try them though!! What’s your take about this? Plz n Thank You!

  13. Those look delish! I have so many egg whites in my freezer from making homemade pasta. My question is….can I make this in a pie plate or 9×13? I don’t have a muffin tin. Would it need to be adapted? Thank you.
