Breakfast Muffins

IF you have today off and want to get ahead for the week, whip up a batch or two of these and put them away for quick breakfasts throughout the week....

I doubled the recipe and made a dozen
I stored them away for quick breakfasts on the go!

I was really happy with this recipe, it's very flexible.  The original recipe calls for bacon but I decided to use chopped nitrate free chicken sausages instead and also add some sauteed mushrooms.  I think it would also be good with other sauteed veggies, you wouldn't necessarily have to use meat if you don't have something suitable to use.

These reheated very nicely and I was sure happy to see them the next day when we were in a hurry to get out the door.  Bubba liked ketchup on his.

  1. Hi Jolie! Thanks for the recipe ~ I do not like sausage at all - so I am going to try these sans the meat. We love bacon - but, of course, we quit buying it because of the nitrates. I think there may be some bacon out there somewhere without nitrates ... but I haven't found it yet.

    1. I would add extra veggies or cooked ground turkey.
      I have found some great bacon at Trader Joe's or see if you have a health food store nearby (but I think I remember you were the one who lives out in the boonies and doesn't have a health food store?) What about a farmer's market?

    2. There is a Trader Joe's about 30 minutes from me ... I just rarely go. But next time I'm there I will look for bacon! Thanks for the tip!

  2. Sounds and looks delicious!
    Thanx Joley ♡
