On the go Breakfast Muffins

For most of the south, at least where I am living, back to school was two weeks ago.  Growing up in Pennsylvania, school started the day after Labor Day – like clockwork and ended near the end of June. Moving to the south, the trend seems to be to start in the “heat of the summer” and end right as it is starting to get summer-like again.  

No matter where you live and for whatever reason, breakfasts on school mornings need to be quick and convenient.  Quick and convenient meaning don’t expect a leisurely Sunday morning-type breakfast.  Parents are rushing to get ready themselves for work and their children for school and have zero time for that! At least, I never did!

On the go Breakfast Muffins - feature

I’ve made a breakfast muffin that is super easy to make ahead and even freeze.  They’ll last a few days in the refrigerator and a month in the freezer.  Just pop the Sausage-Egg Muffins with Veggies in the microwave for a  few seconds (a bit longer if they are frozen) and add some fruit or not.

For those late days, you know what I am talking about – when the kids are late getting to the bus, just place one or two of these breakfast muffins in a resealable bag (after you have heated them up) and kiss the kids good bye as you place the bag in their hands.  

They’re pretty good cold too – so you can pack them in the lunch box as well.

Easy to make breakfast muffins

Breakfast on-the-go muffins are filled with spicy sausage, bell peppers, onions, scrambled eggs, and cheese. The filling is then folded into a basic muffin batter and baked in the oven in a muffin tin (with more cheese on top) until the muffins are set and cooked through.  

The spicy sausage gives it a kick but can be replaced with any type of sausage, bacon, or even ham.  Change up the vegetables as well, broccoli is great in these muffins!
