Breakfast Egg Muffins

Need a breakfast on the go? These Egg muffins have got you covered! Eat right away, make ahead, store in the fridge, take on the go, or reheat before you indulge. I make a batch of these every Sunday so we always have a quick breakfast on hand. Oh, and did I tell you they are (picky eater) kid approved?

Ingredients (yields 20 muffins, 1 per serving, see stats below).

  • 8 ounces of breakfast sausage
  • 2 teaspoons dried chives
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage with the chives, crumbling the meat with a large spoon as it cooks, until the sausage is well browned and cooked through. Drain the fat, if necessary, and set aside.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl, then add the cream, oregano, salt and pepper and whisk until well combined.
  4. Stir in the cooked sausage and cheese.
  5. Pour the mixture into prepared wells of the muffin pan, filling each well about three-quarters full.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the centers are set and the tops are slightly browned.

What I’ve learned…

  • Be prepared for them to disappear quickly once your family knows they are in the fridge 🙂
  • When reheating them, make sure to not overcook since eggs will become rubbery.
  • I like to use reusable muffin liners for these since they absolutely don’t stick and will make the muffins glide right out.
