There are several variations of this recipe and when making these, they are so versatile. I came up with a version that is low in carbs, calories and fat. The fun thing is you can play around with the ingredients and make a few different kinds per pan. That way you have a wide variety to choose from each morning. Make 12 or 18 at a time and you have breakfast ready to grab, pop in the microwave to heat up and go. It doesn't get any easier than that!

Recipe is a variation of my own. Photos are my own.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan well with Pam.
2
*NOTE*I do this next step one at a time so I know that I'm getting the correct amount of turkey/cheese per muffin cup.
3
In a glass measuring cup or small bowl, crack one egg at a time. Beat to break up yolk with a fork and add just a splash of skim milk. Add pepper, garlic and onion powder and mix well.
4
Cut one thawed sausage patty in half and chop into pieces. Cut one cheese stick in half and cut into pieces as well. Add both into egg mixture.
5
Chop spinach, basil and chives. Add to egg/meat/cheese mixture. Mix to combine all ingredients.
6
Pour into greased muffin tin. Repeat 11 more times. Bake in preheated 350° oven for 20-25 minutes or until eggs are set. Mine are always done at 25 minutes.
7
Remove from oven and serve or let cool and then store in an air tight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Reheat in microwave on medium-medium high heat for about 2 minutes. Microwave oven times and temps may vary. Enjoy!
