How To Make the Perfect Egg and Sausage Muffins!

Ingredients

  • eggs
  • breakfast sausage
  • canned coconut milk: make sure to get this unsweetened! This is the best dairy-free alternative to creating that creamy smooth texture in the eggs.
  • tomato
  • onion
  • dairy-free shredded mozzarella cheese: I use this dairy-free alternative instead of regular shredded cheese and can’t tell the difference!
  • canned diced chilies
  • lime juice
  • spices: salt/pepper, dried parsley, garlic cloves (or garlic powder).

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Sauté the garlic and onions in olive oil. Then, crumble in the sausage and cook together until the sausage is cooked. 
  2. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl and add in the cooked sausage mixture, parsley, coconut milk, tomatoes, cheese, chilies, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and mix together until combined.
  3. Fill each muffin cup halfway up with the sausage and egg mixture. Repeat for the whole muffin pan.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until set.

Peachy Tips & Tricks

Egg and Sausage Muffins Pro Tips

  • Make sure to always cook the onions, garlic, and sausage together before adding to the egg mixture. This gives the sausage a little extra flavor.
  • Always grease your muffin tins. If not the eggs will stick.
  • Only fill each muffin cup with 1/2 to 3/4 of the egg mixture. This ensures it won’t overflow.
  • Let your muffins cool for about 10 minutes before attempting to remove them. Run a small spatula around the inside walls of the muffin holes to help loosen them before removing them.

Storage

Refrigerator: Store leftover egg and sausage muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and reheat when ready to serve.

Freezer: Store your sausage muffins in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat when ready to serve.

FAQs

Keto Egg & Sausage Muffins: FAQs

Are these sausage egg muffins keto?

Can I add regular cheese to these sausage muffins?

Yes! If you are not dairy-free and would prefer to use regular shredded cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese for your egg and sausage muffins, substitute the same quantity as the dairy-free mozzarella cheese. You can also replace coconut milk with heavy cream!

To reheat, simply wrap in a damp paper towel and pop in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. Top with hot sauce or dairy-free sour cream and enjoy!
