I love to cook… with all the mistakes there are to be made, you’d think it’d be frustrating at time, which if I’m honest, then yes, it really is. But when you create a recipe that is amazing, the frustrations don’t seem so bad. I made 24 egg muffins this past Monday, and yes, there was a huge mistake that you dear readers, get to learn from: DO NOT USE REGULAR CUPCAKE LINERS WHEN COOKING SOMETHING LIKE EGGS. Use the foil lined ones (see image below) use you like disintegrating pieces of cupcake liner along with your breakfast.
Ingredients (if you don’t want to make 2 batches of muffins, halve this recipe)
1 pound turkey sausage
- 24 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tsp garlic
- 1 cup cheese
- 1 cup salsa or picante sause
- 2 tsp salt & 2 tsp pepper
Brown sausage in frying pan until done, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, add 12 eggs (and whisk) then add 1/2 cup milk along with all the spices (remember to halve it if you don’t want to make 24 muffins!). Stir in the cooked sausage. Line a cupcake or muffin tin with FOIL-lined cupcake liners. Fill each cup about 1/3 to 2/3 full, but no fuller. Add in a pinch of cheese to each individual cup, I realize you can also mix all the cheese in at one time in order to make it faster, but it doesn’t ensure that each cup has the perfect amount of cheese. And I’m kind of a perfectionist 🙂 each muffin NEEDS the perfect amount of cheese. I also do the same with the salsa, putting one spoonful each into each cup.
Bake at 350’F for 20-25 minutes, or until a fork inserted comes out clean.
Enjoy your delicious non-McDonald’s Egg Muffins!
