On-the-Go Egg MacMuffins

Image

This recipe is great because you can make a bunch of servings to take with you later in the week if you’re on the go. It’s also pretty healthy, and is good protein!

  • A Dozen Eggs
  • 1 Cup Diced Veggies (i.e. onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, zuhhchini, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup ground chicken sausage (I used Andouille)
  • 1/2 cup cheese (I used half feta and half shredded cheddar)
  • Cooking Spray
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Spray a 12-muffin baking sheet with cooking spray so the egg muffins won’t stick.
  3. Divide the veggies and sausage evenly into the baking sheet.
  4. Crack one egg for each muffin.
  5. Using a fork, carefully mix the egg whites with the veggies and meat so they are mostly combined. (This will help ensure they hold together after baking.)
  6. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top of the eggs.
  7. Place in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until cooked all the way through.
  8. Cool before removing from pan. (Otherwise they may fall apart)
  9. Bon appetite!

Grandma Me-me’s Biscuits & Gravy

Biscuits and Gravy

  • 1 lb. breakfast sausage
  • 3 c. milk (at least 2% fat)
  • 2-3 tbsp. flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can of Pilsbury’s biscuits
  1. Brown sausage in a large saucepan, mash with a fork to break it up.
  2. Add 2 cups milk and stir.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook on med-low heat for about 10 minutes, allowing some small bubbles to appear in the milk. Stir occasionally.
  3. Put biscuits in the oven and cook according to package directions (about 15-16 minutes).
  4. In a deep bowl or container, add 2-3 tbsp. flour to 1 cup milk and mix and shake it until it appears bubbly and creamy.
  5. Add mixture to the saucepan and stir immediately, allowing the flour to cook and thicken but not burn on the bottom of the pan.  Stir consistently for 5 minutes, slowly turning down the heat to low.  Let it simmer while the biscuits finish cooking, stirring occasionally to have a good consistency.
  6. Split the baked biscuits in half and smother with gravy 🙂
