Think of these Egg Muffin Cups as mini-frittatas. They are made with very minimal ingredients, filled with great flavor and textures from the creamy potatoes and meaty sausage. They make a great make-ahead breakfast too! My kids love them, which makes me so happy!
I feel like calling this the frittata of all frittatas but I won't because I really love my breakfast frittata and this plantain frittata. I also really love a good potato frittata. I have shared a potato frittata on my Facebook page before but just not on the blog. I should bring the recipe to the blog someday.
These Egg Muffin Cups are basically mini-frittatas. I wanted to make egg muffins that were so simple. You mix simple ingredients and pop them in the oven for a quick meal. And these are truly simple! The main ingredients include eggs, potatoes, sausage, onion, and seasoning. Finito!
If you love, you could add veggies to them. Egg Muffin Cups are so versatile! You could load them with veggies, load them with carbs, meats or make them plain and simple like this.
But don't confuse plain and simple for dumb and boring. These are not boring one bit! The soft creamy potatoes and the meaty chicken sausage with the eggs is a combo that works wonders for the taste palate. Also, the onion gives them a nice kick, balancing out the flavors beautifully!
These are great for breakfast, brunch or snack time! For parents, make a huge batch of these Egg Muffin Cups and keep in the fridge then simply reheat and give your kids for breakfast on busy mornings. It is a back-to-school hack you will be thankful for!
