Add the pork sausage, onion, bell pepper, salt, pepper, and cooked sweet potatoes to whisked eggs.
STEP 5: FILL MUFFIN TIN &BAKE
Spoon the egg mixture into the greased muffin tin cups until they are 3/4 full. Make sure all muffin tin cups are evenly filled.
If a few of your muffin tin cups aren’t full enough, whisk another egg or two, and fill them up.
STEP 6: EAT!
Once muffins are cooled, take the muffins out, and store in a large glass food storage container. If muffins aren’t coming out, take a knife around the inside of the muffin cups to loosen the egg muffins.
HOW TO: MEAL PREP & MAKE AHEAD BREAKFAST EGG MUFFINS
Meal prep or make ahead a batch of 12 or more egg muffins at the beginning of the week, and you’ll have a fast breakfast that’s perfect for on the go! Store them in a large glass container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Just eat them up in the microwave when you are ready to eat!
HOW TO STORE, REHEAT & FREEZE EGG BREAKFAST MUFFINS
STORE: Store egg muffins in the fridge in a single, large glass container or in several smaller glass containers. You can also store muffins in a large reusable silicone bag (such as Stasher bags). These are much better options than plastic.
Make sure to let egg muffins cool completely before placing them in any container.
REHEAT: Reheat egg muffins easily in the microwave (about 30 seconds). If reheating frozen egg muffins, reheat for about (1-2 minutes).
FREEZE: To store egg muffins in the freezer, you can place them in a air-tight glass container, or or in a freezer safe silicone bag. Make sure to let egg muffins cool completely before placing them in any container.
▶︎ Avoid using plastic to wrap your food.
You could also leave your egg muffins in the muffin tin, and wrap the top with foil. The foil should prevent freezer burn.
TIPS AND VARIATIONS
Spray/grease the muffin tin before filling with egg mixture to prevent sticking.
Fill muffin tins only 3/4 of the way up before baking to prevent overflow onto the pan. The eggs will puff up when cooked in the oven.
Use a knife and go around the egg muffins after baking to loosen them if you are having trouble getting the muffins out.
