Amazing Muffin Cups

These are a Johnsonville Sausage recipe from their site: johnsonville.com/...muffin-cups.html

I make only half of the recipe (and that's what's shown in my recipe here) since theirs makes 12, and I change it up a bit to suit our tastes.

Ingredients

6
links breakfast sausage
1 1/2 c
shredded hash browns, thawed to room temp.
1 1/2 Tbsp
melted butter
dash(es)
onion powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/8 tsp
black pepper
3 large
eggs
1 Tbsp
half and half or whole milk
1 c
shredded mild cheddar cheese plus 1/4 cup for top
2 Tbsp
finely-chopped green bell pepper, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 6 tins of a 12-cup regular sized muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
2
Cook sausage in a nonstick skillet on medium, turning, until cooked thoroughly. Slice into 1-inch slices and place on paper towels to drain off grease.
3
While sausage is cooking, in a medium bowl, combine thawed hash browns, melted butter, onion powder and half of the salt and pepper, or to taste. Spoon evenly into prepared muffin tins, pressing up on sides and into bottoms firmly. Bake 12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
4
In a medium bowl combine eggs, remaining salt and pepper or to taste and milk. Whisk until combined. Add cheese and green pepper, if used. Stir.
5
Place sausage link slices evenly into cooked potato crusts.
6
Pour egg mixture evenly over sausage. Add the 1/4 cup remaining cheese on top. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until egg is set, testing by touching middle of tops with finger until it bounces back.
7
Remove and let cool 5 minutes in pan before eating.
8
These are great stored in the refrigerator or freezer-just pop into the microwave if in fridge for 1 minute per muffin. If frozen, it may take 2 minutes in the microwave.
