Frittatas and omelets are great for breakfast (or dinner for that matter), but not exactly easy to take with you when you're running out the door. A fun solution: Mini Egg Muffins, 3 Ways! Breakfast is as easy as grab-and-go with these mini egg muffins. Just mix it all together and pop it into the oven while you finish getting yourself ready or make them the night before and just give a quick reheat in the morning.

Ingredients

Eggs 8
Bell pepper 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , dice
Italian sausage 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , dice (cooked)
Cherry tomatoes 6 , halved

Directions

GETTING READY

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease your mini muffin tin with some butter.

MAKING

Evenly distribute the diced sausage and bell peppers between each mini muffin.

In a large bowl whisk the eggs. Season with salt and black pepper.

Pour in the egg mixture, filling each mini muffin cup about 3/4 of the way full.

Gently top with a cherry tomato half. Bake for 20 minutes.

SERVING

Serve the muffins with fresh fruit juice.

NOTES

Eat right out of the oven or allow to cool and wrap and refrigerate to enjoy later. To heat just pop them into the microwave or into the toaster oven until heated through.

Alternative Flavor Combos Instead of Sausage and Peppers, try these flavor combinations. Use the same amount of eggs and follow the same steps, just replace the muffin ingredients.

Cheesy Bacon:1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese +6 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled.

Spinach+ Mushroom:1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves, minced +1/2 cup button mushrooms, diced.
