Savoury breakfast Muffins Ingredients
This soft boiled eggs, sausage and cheese breakfast to go recipe also calls for oil, vinegar, dill weed, salt, and pepper. You also need flour, baking powder and soda, garlic salt, onion powder, butter, sour cream, buttermilk, heavy cream, mozzarella, spinach, and grape tomatoes.
Although this might sound like a lot of ingredients, once you taste these you’ll want this turkey sausage breakfast every day!
How to Make This Healthy Breakfast
Add a little white vinegar to a pot of water and then add the eggs. Give them 4 minutes and then plunge them in a bowl of ice water. If you’re wondering why the vinegar, it helps the eggs peel more easily!
Add some oil to a skillet and then cook the sausage. Add some of the dill, and some salt and pepper and then set the drained turkey sausage to one side.
Next you will combine the flour with the baking powder and baking soda, garlic salt, and onion powder. Sift this mixture into a bowl then mix in the butter, sour cream, heavy cream, and buttermilk, stirring with a wooden spoon.
Mix in the rest of the dill along with the mozzarella, spinach, tomatoes and sausage. Peel the eggs.
Divide some of the batter between greased muffin cups and put a peeled egg in the middle of each, then cover with the rest of the batter. It’s important to liberally grease the muffin cups. If you don’t, you will risk them sticking! I like to use a silicone muffin pan when making these.
Sprinkle over the mozzarella and add more pepper, then bake until done. Enjoy this health breakfast warm, garnished with dill if you like.
Why Savoury Breakfast Muffins are So Good
The combination of soft boiled eggs, sausage and cheese is so good, while the spinach and tomatoes add even more flavour. I love the soft yolk in this breakfast to go, but you can hard boil the eggs if that’s your preference.
These are well worth making and you can store them in the refrigerator or freezer for a speedy breakfast to go. Something else I love about these soft yolk muffins is you can change the ingredients.
Try beef or pork sausage instead of pork, use a different kind of cheese (cheddar would be good) or change the fillings. Spinach, cheese and tomatoes are great in egg dishes such as omelettes. They also work well here but you can consider mushrooms or bell pepper instead of, or as well as, those.
Savoury Breakfast Muffins FAQs
Keep these soft boiled eggs, sausage and cheese bites refrigerated and they will keep for up to 4 days. If you wrap each one individually they’ll be a handy breakfast you can simply grab before rushing out the door.
Freezing them is a great idea because it means you can make a big batch of this healthy breakfast. They will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer. Thaw a frozen muffin overnight in the refrigerator then give it about a minute in the microwave to warm it up. How easy is that? A hot breakfast ready for you in just a minute! In fact, 30 to 45 seconds might be enough time to reheat these, depending on your microwave.
Since these are baked after the eggs are boiled, that extra cooking time will firm up the yolks some more. If you hard-boil them to start with, they will have too much total cooking time and get rubbery in the oven. Don’t forget they have even more cooking time if you make a batch and reheat them in the microwave. So keep the egg boiling time to 4 minutes!
