Sausage Egg Muffin Cups


These sausage egg muffin cups are what happens when necessity meets convenience. I’ve been trying to get more protein in my diet and our mornings have been busy around here. I’m sure most of you can relate. So what we have here are delicious, handheld egg muffins that are packed with protein and flavor!

I’m pretty picky when it comes to make ahead egg recipes, so you have to trust me when I tell you – these will make a believer out of you.

I’ve tested these egg muffins sooooo many times and with so many different variations. I can confidently say – this is THE egg muffin cup recipe you want. They’re dense and fluffy, with the perfect ratio of sausage and cheese folded into the mix. They don’t dry out and they’re just as good reheated as they are fresh out of the muffin pan.

Here’s where easy meets yum – we’re dirtying a total of two dishes for a week’s worth of breakfast.

How to Make Sausage Egg Breakfast Muffins

  1. Brown the sausage.
  2. Crack the eggs.
  3. Add seasonings, cheese, and mix. 
  4. Fill the muffin trays.
  5. Bake. 

That’s it. Seriously. 5 steps and 30 minutes = breakfast for the whole week. I mean, come on. You can’t beat that.

Who Needs These Sausage Egg Muffin Cups:

  • non-morning people
  • blue collar people who don’t want fast food for breakfast
  • moms with busy school mornings
  • anyone who spends money on Starbucks egg muffin cups
  • anyone who needs easy, on-the-go protein snacks
  • people who like minimal prep/minimal clean up recipes

These work perfect for our household right now. My boyfriend and I both work days, but he has to be up 3 hours before I do. And I love him, but I’m not getting up that early to make breakfast and try to go back to bed until I go in.

This is the egg muffin recipe you have been searching for. Perfectly dense and fluffy, loaded with sausage and cheese. Easy prep ahead breakfast!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Servings 12 muffin cups


  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheese I like Mexican blend
  • 1/2 lb. cooked ground sausage
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • olive oil cooking spray if you're not using a silicone muffin tray


  • Preheat oven to 375º. Brown sausage and drain excess fat. Set aside.
  • Crack eggs into a pitcher or a large measuring bowl (preferably with a spout for easy pouring.)
  • Add cheese, salt, and pepper. Use an immersion blender or whisk to thoroughly combine.
  • Scoop about 2 Tablespoons of sausage into each muffin cup. Pour egg mixture in until almost full.
  • Bake muffin cups for 25-30 minutes, until egg is fully set and not jiggly. The tops should be lightly browned. Enjoy immediately or allow to cool and store in the fridge.


You can add veggies to these if you like! I've added tomatoes, asparagus, onion, mushrooms, and peppers. I just keep the veggie toppings to 1-2 Tablespoons so they don't overflow.
