Spinach/Sausage Egg Muffins

Got 5 minutes? These delicious egg muffins are a cinch to whip up. I like to prepare them the night before so that my eyes can stay shut as long as possible in the AM. They come together in no time and are very versatile in what you put in. 

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love a savory breakfast. I’m a lover of all things sweet but in the morning, I need something salty and hearty to get my day going. But, I also love my sleep. So, I’m always looking for recipes that I can prepare the night before.

These were a hit.

I’ll be making them some more and switching it up a bit, bacon, ham, or maybe both?  You can’t go wrong. Although I love the combination of spinach and sausage in these.

Don’t underestimate these hearty little cups! They are delicious and filling. And the spinach makes me feel healthy.
