Sausage Egg Muffins


Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 12 muffins
Difficulty: Easy
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
kcal: Approximately 150 kcal per muffin


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (any colour)
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup diced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup cooked and crumbled breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a muffin tin or line it with muffin liners.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and dried oregano until well combined.

  3. Stir in the diced bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, cooked sausage, and shredded cheddar cheese. Mix until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.

  4. Pour the egg mixture into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cavity about three-quarters full.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the muffins are set and lightly golden on top. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the centre of a muffin—if it comes out clean, the muffins are ready.

  6. Remove the muffin tin from the oven and let the muffins cool for a few minutes before removing them from the tin.

  7. Serve the Sausage Egg Muffins warm and enjoy them as a wholesome breakfast or snack.

Note: These muffins are highly customizable. Feel free to add other vegetables or herbs, such as spinach, tomatoes, or fresh herbs, to suit your taste. You can also try different types of cheese or swap the sausage for cooked bacon or turkey sausage for variety.
