Do I need any special equipment to make spicy breakfast muffins?
You will need two 12-cup muffin tins but that is not anything special. Most people already have these in their cupboards.Print
12 oz. spicy bulk pork sausage
12 large eggs
4 oz. baby Portobello mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
3 large green onions, thinly sliced, green portion only
8 oz. four cheese Mexican blend, finely shredded, divided
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Non-stick cooking spray
1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
2. Crumble sausage into bite-sized pieces into a large skillet. Cook the sausage over medium heat until it is no longer pink, approximately 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and carefully drain excess fat.
3. Crack eggs into a large bowl and beat thoroughly with a fork. Add cooked sausage, Portobello mushrooms, green onion, and one half of the cheese blend. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Vigorously stir with a fork to combine.
4. Spray both muffin tins thoroughly with non-stick cooking spray and scoop ¼ cup of egg mixture into opening. (Batch yields approximately 16 muffins). When finished, top each cup with equal amounts of the remaining Mexican-blend cheese.
5. Place muffin tins in pre-heated oven and bake for 20–25 minutes or until eggs are set. Remove from oven and cool slightly before removing from pan. Serve immediately or place in freezer-safe container to freeze for later use. Enjoy!
