So for the most part, I am a savory tooth, not a sweet one. And my dilemma lately has been finding healthy breakfast foods that aren’t sweet. I am so anti oatmeal, I hate the sweetness, the mushiness, the relative sameness of the whole thing. So besides the stupid expensive egg white wraps and English muffins from Starbucks, etc, I really struggle to find something I want to eat first thing in the morning that sustains me and has enough protein. 

So for awhile, avoiding carbs, I’d have 2 hard boiled eggs a day, but it wasn’t ideal, or exciting, especially since my cholesterol was already high. 

Now this here, in this adorable muffin tin, with chicken sausage, spinach, green peppers, scallions, a bit of cheese and of course many eggs, is right up my alley. The first time I made it, I had less veggies, and totally overcooked them. The sides were a lil brown on the edges, making the eggs a bit chewy. This time, mama got it right(!), and I can’t wait to have two or so every morning this week. Easy to store & quick to warm in the microwave. I don’t have a specific recipe I’ve used, but if you google breakfast eggs in muffin tins, you’ll find a bunch of great recipes to guide you.
