Egg muffins are one of my favorite things to meal prep for breakfasts throughout the week. They’re easy to make, take under 30 minutes, and are a great way to use up veggies and meats I would otherwise end up letting go bad.

For this week’s egg muffins, I used sausage links, red peppers, onions, and mushrooms.

Here are a bunch of pictures of me prepping the food, because people do that for whatever reason. I’m making them into a gallery in case you’re like me and don’t actually like having to scroll for 10 years to find the recipe. Buuut they’re still here in case you are more of a visual person.

Okay! Now that that’s over with, here’s the recipe! I throw these in the fridge to eat over the next 3 or 4 days. But you can also freeze them if you want them to last longer!

Equipment

  • muffin pan
  • skillet
  • knife
  • cutting board
  • spoon
  • whisk or fork

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Sausage Link (the big ones) diced
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 4 mushrooms diced
  • Ghee spray for skillet and pan
  • 6 eggs scrambled

Optional

  • taco seasoning I sprinkled a bit on the meat mixture while it was cooking
  • crushed red pepper flakes I sprinkled a bit on top on the muffins right before I baked them.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Throw all of the meat and veggies into a greased skillet. Cook on medium-high until the vegetables are soft.
  • (OPTIONAL: Season with taco seasoning. Only a few sprinkles should do it.)
  • Spray the muffin cups with ghee.
  • Put a spoonful of the meat mixture into the muffin cups.
  • Pour eggs in each muffin cup (about halfway full). Should cover most of the meat/veggies.
  • (OPTIONAL: Sprinkle crushed red pepper flakes on top to spice things up.)
  • Bake for about 15 minutes (or until eggs are firm and cooked all the way through).
  • Let them sit for about 5 minutes at room temperature before transferring them to a container or bag for freezing.

You might have a little bit of the meat mixture and the eggs left over. Go ahead and make yourself a scramble with those ingredients. If you’re like me, you’re probably hungry anyways.
