Easy Make Head Sausage and Egg Muffins

Easy Breakfast for busy mornings

Can you believe that back to school is upon us? I am a teacher, so not only do I need to prepare my kids for back to school, but I have to get myself ready, too! It can be a stressful and busy time of the year and eating gets a little out of whack until I get our schedules settled.

While I am okay with resorting to throwing a granola bar at my kids in the mornings, I would much rather serve them a hot breakfast. These Easy Sausage and Cheese Egg Muffins are perfect because you can make up a big batch on the weekends and then serve all week!

Egg Muffin Ideas

These muffins are super versatile and you can substitute in whatever type of meat, veggies, and cheese that you like.

Ham swaps out perfectly for the sausage and you can add more vegetables or even leave them out altogether if you want. I used peppers and onions for flavor, but they definitely aren’t necessary. I think that cheddar cheese goes best with eggs, but Monterey jack, swiss, or even mozzarella would work here!
