Easy Sausage, Eggs, & Cheese Muffins Recipe

Posted on Dec 7 2014 - 2:33am by Susan Bewley

On weekends I usually try to make something fun to eat for my family. Even though we both work from home, it feels like we never have time during the week to make a fun breakfast. Normally it is usually a bagel or cereal, which is far from fun in my opinion. Recently I was introduced to a yummy breakfast recipe that is super easy to make, and great for those weekends where you have things planned but want to have a hot breakfast at the table. When I saw how easy this recipe was, I honestly couldn’t believe it, especially since it is similar to breakfast sandwiches sold at certain restaurants. To say the least, we were impressed with this simple breakfast sandwich and couldn’t wait to share it with our readers!

Note: Special thanks to my friends Shannon at Livingston Creatives for helping me with this recipe and pictures!

    This recipe sounds good. You took all of the breakfast favorites and rolled it all into one. It can be eaten on the way out the door, if need be.

    huh. really interesting to use the hashbrowns as a way of keeping the eggs and sausage together. this would also probably work with bacon instead of sausage. It sounds like a nice recipe. I’ll have to give it a try.

    I love muffins and these sound easy to make.

  31. Michele Ash December 30, 2014 at 12:12 am - Reply

    OMG! I absolutely LOVE this recipe! I presume you could also use bacon to make these as well! This is a terrific breakfast idea! I’m sure that everyone will love them! During the week, my husband and I generally do not eat breakfast, only coffee. The kids will usually have toast and juice or cereal and fruit. When they are running late for school, which is getting to be an awful lot lately (and that was before Christmas break!), I make sure they grab a power bar or something on the way out the door! So, serving this recipe would be a treat for all of us! My printer is broken (again!) so, I’m going to write this recipe down and as soon as I get ahold of some hash browns, I’m making these! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us! I really appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂
