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.

Divide some of the muffin batter between each prepared muffin cup 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.

Paper muffin liners always make it easy to clean the muffins tins, I don’t recommend them for this particular muffin recipe. I just grease the muffin tins and the muffins come out really easy. Cooking spray would work well, too.

Sprinkle over the mozzarella shredded cheese and add more pepper, then bake until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy this health breakfast warm, garnished with dill if you like. I love that they have a whole egg inside!

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. These muffins are one of my favourite breakfast egg recipes and they are just perfect for meal prep. Something else I love about a soft yolk savory muffin is you can change the ingredients.

Variations for these Hearty Egg Muffins

Try beef or pork breakfast sausage, turkey bacon or diced ham instead of turkey sausage, use a different kind of cheese (cheddar cheese 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. If you are not a fan of dill, you can use fresh chives, green onions or other fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, or sage. Don’t forget to serve with some hot sauce!

Savoury Breakfast Muffins FAQs

How long can you refrigerate breakfast muffins?

Keep these soft boiled eggs, sausage and cheese bites refrigerated in an airtight container 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.

Are breakfast muffins freezer-friendly?

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.

Why are these made with soft boiled egg?

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!

Can you make these egg muffins gluten free?

Yes! This recipe uses all purpose flour, but I have made them with a 1:1 gluten free flour such as King Arthur or Bob’s Red Mill. The texture is a bit different but still very delicious.
