How can I get the kids fed a decent breakfast and off to school faster? Forget faster... just not late would be nice. Their favorite breakfast is scrambled eggs and sausage... but that takes the extra 5 minutes we don't have in the mornings so often its cheerios, toast, or pancakes (duh, the microwave kind) instead. Sugar + Superheroes = crazy out-of-control behavior at school so I'm trying to cut that out. Eggs and sausage are perfect, just slightly more time consuming.
Then it dawned on me... my mini-muffin tin. You need this.. it's great for appetizers for parties, for tricking kids into eating healthy *on-the-run* meals, and I even heard they're the perfect size for Jello Shots. Just sayin'.
Egg Muffins on the Run
6 fully cooked breakfast turkey sausage links or patties
***I only used about 3 for this recipe but saved the rest of the chopped sausage for dinner,
Sausage and Eggs part 2, posting tomorrow!***
1 tube of crescent rolls or biscuits
about a cup of shredded cheddar
I didn't use any PAM first, just put a small square size of crescent roll in each tin.
Like so... how cute.
Roughly chop the turkey breakfast sausage (it's already cooked)
Whisk 8 eggs in a bowl... I didn't add any milk. Then I threw in a handful of cheese.
I layered a bit of sausage first. Then I decided I'd do half with crescent roll at the bottom and half without and see if it made a difference.
I poured the eggs into each cup over the sausage, careful not to fill allllllll the way to the top.
13 minutes at 350 seemed about right. They popped right out of the muffin pan with no mess behind using a small knife. The verdict... definitely better with crescent roll on the bottom. I bet biscuit would be even better. Superman was wary at first but this morning he ate his in the car!! I see many mini-muffins in my future.
