Not to worry, I have taken care of that for you with an absolutely delicious and easy solution. These muffins are chock full of sausage, peppers & onions and are just so tasty they will literally be asking you for more!! You will be smiling from ear to ear as you watch your family devour them while sneaking one for yourself. What?
Did I mention I haven't used any fat in this recipe either? I could go on and on... but I think I will just share the recipe, what do you think? Let's get on that.
Prep time: 25 minutes
Bake time: 25 minutes
Yield: 12 muffins
3 turkey Italian sausages (I used Jennie-O)
2-1/4 cups water
2 large eggs
16 Oz (454g) egg beaters
1 medium onion sliced
1 medium pepper sliced
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Pinch of salt & pepper
Baking spray for the muffin tins
-Slice the onion and pepper and set aside.
-Using the same skillet, add the remaining water along with the onion & pepper slices. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper and let the vegetables simmer till the water has absorbed and the vegetables are nice and soft. At this point I would grab a fork and taste an onion and pepper slice to ensure of course that they are indeed softened and all. Turn off heat.
-Preheat oven to 350F. Pre-spray your muffin tins and divide the sausage evenly and add to the bottom of your muffin tins. Sneak just one more piece of sausage...
-Grate your Parmesan cheese, set aside. Using a large measuring cup add your egg beaters along with your 2 eggs and whisk till the eggs are uniform and thoroughly mixed.
-Pour your egg mixture evenly into the muffin tins.
-Let's add in the amazing grated Parmesan cheese, right in the center. At this point you can shave yourself just a smidgen of cheese... you know for testing purposes!
-Bake for 25 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Mine took exactly 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit in muffin tins for just a few minutes.
-After a few minutes, remove from muffin tins and place on cooling rack to cool thoroughly. Or, you can lovingly present them on a plate to your family...
Your entire kitchen will be filled with the aroma of sausage, peppers & onions!! You will not have to entice your family to dig into these beauties, I can promise you that. They will last in the fridge for 1 week if they make it past day 2 that is.
A nice, easy and very healthy for you breakfast that your entire family will love. Shhhhhhh it's our secret!!
Till next time!!
