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?

  • Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders over Cavatappi Pasta in Vodka Sauce—RECREATE THIS DECADENT MEAL IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES! 
Y’all know that I love things that are quick, easy, and flavorful in the kitchen. And this one took less than 30 minutes start to finish! I dare say maybe even less than 20. 👀⠀
⠀
I’ve been making chicken (I’ve tried tender, breasts, and thighs) this way for about a week or two now and it’s so incredibly flavorful and juicy! ⠀
⠀
This meal looks and tastes super decadent, with very minimal effort. ⠀
⠀
The @weberseasonings Garlic Parmesan seasoning that I mention and use here is a new favorite, I’ve been putting it on everything—but of course you can change up the seasonings and even the sauces to cater to your family’s tastebuds. 
I bet this would be really good with some fettuccine and alfredo sauce; I may try that next!
  • HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY FRIENDS. 
Get you a Valentine who looks at you the way that Grayson looks at ice cream in the ➡️➡️s w i p e 😂😂😂
  • These didn’t photograph as well as I wanted, but they were insanely delicious. 
Baja Chicken and QUESO stuffed Bell Peppers. 🤤🤤 I cooked two chicken breasts in a little bit of chicken broth in the crockpot—seasoned with @goyafoods Adobo Seasoning, onion and garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper. High for 3/4 or low for 6. 
Then I began by caramelizing some onions in my pan, added a bit (a lot) of minced garlic and sautéed until fragrant. I added a can of tri bean blend (this was kidney, black, and pinto beans but you can use your fave) and a can of corn drained and rinsed into the pan. Seasoned all with onion and garlic powder, as well as salt and pepper. I added my shredded chicken and a jar of my favorite Queso to these. 
After cutting the tops off and cleaning the seeds out from inside my peppers, I spooned this mixture into each and sprinkled with cotija cheese. 
Bake them at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until the cheese on top is brown and bubbling. *You can boil your peppers prior to this so they’re soft and not super chewy. 
I served them over Mexican Rice (also from Goya). These will be on the blog soon. But I wanted to share it since it was super yummy. ■ ■

  • Perfect Saturday Family Lunch. 
We tried out @baddaddysburger for the first time today and it did *not* disappoint. Jacob got the Bad Ass Burger, which is a 10oz beef patty with buttermilk fried bacon on top. It comes with horseradish mayo, but he subbed for original. 
And I got the create your own (giant) salad—with chopped romaine, red onions, hard boiled eggs, black olives, grapes, shredded cheese, croutons and fried chicken tenders; with ranch on the side. Seriously delicious. 
Their fried pickles were noteworthy—coated in a seasoned batter and super tasty. Our server told us that the fried deviled eggs were really popular as well, so that’s on my to try list. 
We didn’t try their milkshakes or banana pudding today because we were just so full, but I can’t wait to go back.

  • My photo dump rambling of a weekend recap is live on the blog. I had so much fun with these ladies, and I swear I’ll stop talking about it eventually. 😂 
Shout outs to every single place we went that accommodated such a large group of loud women, all with cameras out. 
@noelle_nashville / @makeready_nashville provided us with THE most delicious dinner Friday night, where this photo was taken. (I think that I may take Jacob there for Valentine’s Day). 📸: @ellie_kayphotography

  • Wow. FIVE YEARS.⠀
⠀
While we’ve been together for much longer, marriage is so much different. And I definitely think that getting to the five year mark is a feat in itself. ⠀
⠀
Today on the blog—I’m sharing a few, five to be exact, of the lessons I’ve learned over the course of the last five years. (Click the Link in my Bio to read). ⠀
Being married to someone and in their space almost constantly, you learn a lot about a person...and I honestly feel like I picked one of the best. He’s my best friend and he is always in my corner. He supports me unconditionally, even if I’m not believing in myself. ⠀
⠀
Spoiler Alert: It isn’t always Sunshine and Rainbows, but Marriage isn’t supposed to suck. ⠀
⠀
If I could give one quick piece of advice it would be this: Marry someone who just gets you. Someone who sets your soul on fire. ⠀
⠀
I’ve said this many times, but I knew almost instantly that I was going to marry my husband. ⠀
⠀
TELL ME IN THE COMMENTS ⬇️:⠀
What is the best piece of marriage/relationship advice you’ve ever received, and what is the worst? ⠀
