Start your day with these delicious Sausage and Egg Breakfast Muffins, a great protein packed choice that will keep you feeling fuller for longer.
I love breakfast, it is my most favourite meal of the day and a meal I wake up looking forward to. This wasn't always the case though. Years ago I was one of those breakfast avoiders, who never really ate breakfast, unless you call waking up at 11am in your early 20s and grabbing the nearest unhealthy thing you can find, a breakfast.
What you eat at breakfast is really important, because the choice you make can have an impact on the rest of your day. Choose something high in sugar, and the chances are you will spend the rest of the day craving sugar and it will be harder to stick to plan.
Choosing a good source of protein at breakfast is always a good choice. Pair it up with some healthy speed foods if you really want to help boost your weight loss and this would be perfect. Starting your day off in this way, you will be surprised at how much better the rest of your day will follow in regards to food choices.
These Sausage and Egg Breakfast Muffins are really yummy and can be made in advance and eaten hot or cold or if you prefer hot, you can heat up as you want them. Cold they are kind of similar to a scotch egg without the breading. Yummy right?
I have experimented quite a bit creating my own sausage patties. Extra lean ground pork can be pretty dry, so it's hard to get that sausage like taste. I've found the best thing to add to the mix is either brown sugar or maple syrup. Now you may want to avoid sugar and skip it, but I highly recommend you don't. The sugar is what helps the sausage caramelize, nothing worse than a pale dry sausage right? You have to trust me on this one.
Depending on how you like your eggs, then you may need to leave these Sausage and Egg Breakfast Muffins in the oven a little bit longer once you add the eggs. I like a soft yolk, so the time was perfect for that. I recommend using medium sized eggs, don't use large, as they won't fit in the sausage cups. They are too big and will overflow.
The kids love these Sausage and Egg Breakfast Muffins with some baked beans on the side. I love them with these Sautéed Garlic Mushrooms and Balsamic Tomatoes and Spinach. They would also be lovely with this Tomato and Red Onion Relish
