Sausage, Spinach, and Salsa Egg Muffins

January 17, 2019 in breakfast, Food - No Comments

Meal Planning and Prepping seriously saves me during the week. I want my family to have healthy options for every meal, but cooking them all the same day is exhausting. I began meal prepping years ago as a way to save time. Back then, I only did it occasionally, but since becoming a Mom I do it all the time. Breakfast is one of my favorite meals to prep ahead of time. It allows me to just warm our meals up either in the microwave or toaster oven and enjoy my coffee, instead of scrambling around half asleep. These egg muffins are a favorite around here, and can be customized to include all of your favorite things. They’re packed with protein and full of greens–the perfect make ahead healthy breakfast!


Everyone in my family loves eggs, so these are always a no brainer when I want to meal prep our breakfasts for the week. They’re great on the go, in the car, and even cut up and put on toast!

One of the best parts about these Egg Muffins, Casseroles, etc. is that you can completely customize them to your tastes. I am constantly changing them up–from what breakfast meats I use, to the add-ins. You can make pretty much anyone in your family happy with these! I added a few ingredients to the egg mixture here that made them super creamy and delicious. I bet you can’t eat just one!

Here’s what I used to create these Sausage, Spinach, and Salsa Make Ahead Egg Muffins.
*I meal prepped for my entire family’s weekly breakfast with this. This recipe made a TON of Muffins (12 Regular and 6 Jumbo Muffin Tins were FILLED), feel free to 1/2 it for less*

Ingredients

15 Eggs
Big Splash of Milk
1-2 TBSP Sour Cream
Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder to Taste
6-8 Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Patties, Cut into bite sized pieces (You can use links and sub Pork or Bacon as well)
1-2 Handfuls Spinach
4 Gloves Garlic
1/2 White Onion, Diced
1 Jar of your Favorite Salsa

Directions

Preheat your oven to 375 Degrees.

Start by sauteing your garlic, spinach, and onion together on low-medium heat. This is going to really incorporate those flavors together. You want to do this until your spinach is nice and soft.
If you don’t use fully cooked sausage, you’re going to want to start by browning that, and then go back to step one. Since I used fully cooked patties, I just popped them in the microwave for a few minutes (from frozen), cut them up, and threw them into the skillet along with my jar of salsa.

I used Thick and Chunky Salsa so that you’d really be able to taste the flavors, and the end muffin wouldn’t be really runny.
Turn your heat to low, and let those flavors mix together, and it should thicken just a little bit.

Now it’s time to start on your egg mixture! You can just use whisked eggs if you want and stop there, but I wanted it to be extra rich and creamy, so to my eggs, I added a splash of milk, a knob of butter, some sour cream, onion powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
(It’s okay if there’s some chunks left..that’s just butter and sour cream, and it will be delicious.)

Thoroughly spray your muffin tin with cooking oil, or use liners! And then add your sausage mixture.
Fill the remainder with your egg mixture. These tend to deflate a little after cooling, so I fill them pretty high up. Make sure to stir your cups around so that the add ins don’t stay in the bottom and create a soggy egg cup!

Pop your muffin tins into your oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. This is going to depend entirely on your oven! This batch took me 22 minutes. (I turned the oven off after 21 and let them sit inside for an extra minute).

These can be served immediately, kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, and frozen (air tight again) for up to three months! Meal Prepping made simple, or what?

  • A Peek into Our Saturday Afternoon and Family Day at my husband’s job.⠀
⠀
This is a yearly event that they put on for all of the families and it’s amazing! Lots of rides, prizes, food, and fun treats. We had a blast. ⠀
⠀
I may have went overboard with the free burgers today. I’m a sucker for a really good burger off the grill. Anyone else? ⠀
⠀
Full Disclosure: My Ennegram 6 came out hard when Grayson wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel.⠀
⠀
I was almost hoping that 1. We could talk him out of it, or 2. My husband would be too tall to ride it with him. I was so nervous about how he would react. ⠀
What if he tried to get down?⠀
What if he was so scared and I wasn’t up there with him?⠀
⠀
But, I learned a lesson today. ⠀
I have to learn to trust my boy. He *knew* he wanted to ride it, and he loved it! ⠀
Slowly loosening my reigns on him. Reluctantly... 🤣🤣⠀

  • Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. I didn’t always openly share about my struggles over the years with my own mental health. I always steered the conversation towards how important it was for anyone struggling to reach out, ask for help, share their story, whatever they felt comfortable doing. Ending the Stigma.⠀
⠀
But me? Oh no, I was to embarrassed to admit that I was also struggling. ⠀
⠀
I never really noticed a change in my mental health until *after* I became a mother. Post-Partum (and situational—my husband and I were just in a bad place financially, in our marriage, etc) Depression really got the best of me after I gave birth to my son. I slept all the time, picked stupid fights with my husband, and at times just genuinely didn’t want to be alive. Thought that I was a horrible mother. Thankfully after struggling for what felt like forever, those feelings went away. ⠀
⠀
Going into my second pregnancy and remembering just how badly that PPD had gotten, spiraled me into a new feeling—anxiety. And that feeling hasn’t really gone away. ⠀
⠀
I have really really great days, more good than bad and I am so grateful for that. But there are days where I feel my overwhelm and anxiety physically crushing me. Being able to speak up about it, communicate my needs to my partner, *and* find support and solace in wonderful women who are going through the same has been my saving grace. ⠀
⠀
Sure, Instagram is often filled with really beautiful curated images—and don’t mistake my words here, I love and enjoy scrolling these beautiful feeds; but it’s also important to remember that it isn’t always beautiful and well planned all of the time. There are real people behind these beautiful photos. ⠀
⠀
Life can also be messy. Embrace the mess. ⠀
⠀
(Inspiration for this post today comes from two beautiful Moms that I follow and love, who consistently advocate for Mental Health Awareness- @thegarciadiaries and @arynhinton). ⠀
⠀
Scroll all the way through for a silly outtake of the first image. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Oh, Sawyer. Lol. ⠀

  • Do you have a house full of snackers? #AD Whether you have a toddler or a preschooler @beechnutfoods Toddler Snacks (their Fruity Oat Bars specifically) are some of our favorite Grab N Go snacks! They contain only 5 *REAL* Ingredients and no artificial preservatives (Whole Grain Oats, Raisins, Dates, Sunflower Oil, and Dried Strawberries or Bananas—depending on which you get). The kids absolutely love them, and I feel pretty great giving them these whenever they ask for one. 
I also love sneaking Beech-Nut​®​ Naturals purees into their food to make sure they’re getting enough servings of veggies a day too. 
What are your kid’s favorite snacks? •

  • Today is #NationalTacoDay 🌮🌮🌮
Are y’all celebrating? We had tacos for dinner a few nights ago, but I’m pretty sure we need to have them again. What’s your favorite kind of taco? And what’s your must have topping? I *love* and have to have cheese, raw onions, lettuce, avocado, salt and pepper and tapatio on my beef tacos. •

  • I missed National Son Day yesterday...that was my bad. I typically don’t realize it’s a “national ___ day” unless someone tells me. 😅😅 This kid loves so hard, feels things so big, and oftentimes frustrates the mess out of me. 
He’s at that age where he’s testing lots of boundaries and realizing he doesn’t want to do everything he’s told, he’s learning to use his voice and while I LOVE that it’s some times challenging for me. 
I’ve had days where I’m harder on him that I should be, and days where I feel like I’ve coddled him too much. 
Watching him grow into his personality and have likes and dislikes, and big strong opinions is amazing to watch. He’s funny, he’s goofy, he’s sensitive, he’s stubborn, and he’s oh so smart. He still loves cars and dinosaurs, and has taken up a love of baking. (Halloween Baking Championship is his favorite show). And even though he and I butt heads some times, I can’t even put into words the love that I feel for my first born. 
After all, like he tells me all the time “You made me in your tummy and grew me special!” 🥰🥰

  • I have the weirdest question y’all... My kids LOVE fruit, like, they’re obsessed. They eat some with almost every meal, they like it as a snack, etc etc. 
Mostly though, they love Summertime fruits like watermelon, strawberries, actually all of the berries really. 
As we get closer to Fall and Winter, I’ve found my strawberry selection at the grocery store is...just not great. 
So....what are some of your kid’s faves? (We get berries, bananas and apples WEEKLY. Grayson likes bananas and apples but Sawyer seems to only like strawberries. And we don’t do a ton of citrus because we’re mildly allergic to it when it touches our skin—though we do love it!)
