Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day – there’s something special about the aroma of eggs, sausage and bacon cooking in the morning! These breakfast egg muffins are the perfect combination of an egg omelette and hash browns, all in bite! I make these muffins with all the usual omelette ingredients: mushrooms, shallots, peppers and cheese. Each bite is packed full of amazing, mouth-watering flavor! I love to make these for Sunday brunch and enjoy them with a side of avocado and heirloom tomatoes.

Breakfast Egg Muffins Recipe (video)
- 4 breakfast sausage links, chopped
- 1 large shallot, diced
- 3 large mushrooms, diced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- salt for seasoning
- 5 large eggs
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup grated cheese
- 1 teaspoon EACH: salt, dried basil
- freshly ground black pepper
- chopped chives and dill, for garnish
- smoked paprika
- 2 cups frozen hash browns; regular or sweet potato
- Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare a 6-cup muffin tin: grease the cups very well and spray with cooking spray.
- Prepare the filling. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chopped sausage and brown all over. Add the remaining filling ingredients: shallot, mushrooms and pepper. Season with a bit of salt and saute for a few minutes until shallot is translucent and pepper is tender. Set the fillings aside and allow them to cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, prepare the egg mixture. Whisk the eggs together with water, salt, dried basil and ground black pepper. Add the grated cheddar cheese and cooled fillings.
- Assemble the muffins. Fill each muffin cup about half way with loosely packed hash browns. Spoon the egg mixture over the top. Garnish the top with chopped chives and fresh dill; sprinkle with smoked paprika.
- Bake the egg muffins in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the top is completely set. Allow the muffins to cool for a few minutes in the pan before removing. Serve with sliced avocado or tomatoes on the side.
