Make Ahead Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Muffins

Mornings can be so busy! It’s hard to think of something quick, yummy, and healthy! That is why breakfast muffins are my go-t0 for busy mornings. It’s important that my kids eat breakfast and it’s easy to shove some cereal in their mouths, but I’ve discovered if I make these in advanced they are just as easy as cereal! I hope you enjoy these Make Ahead Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Muffins just as much as we do!

    I am going to have to try to make these for my boys. I wonder if I can make a few with bacon in place of the sausage – will have to try both. They will not eat breakfast unless it is quick and easy so this is great.

  • Scott

    Our favorite quick breakfast is a grilled onion omelette. Doesn’t take much time and so good for you.

  • What a great idea you have here. I should really do this for my family a few days a week. Sure beats the old boring standby breakfasts.

  • Michele

    I love make ahead breakfasts they make life so much simpler!! This is perfect cause I can customize it to each persons preference!

  • Rebekah

    These are a great idea and look so good. I am not a morning person, so getting up and cooking a nice breakfast just isn’t going to happen. I could totally do this though!


    Oh I love these. You can make a bunch ahead of time and then warm them up in the morning. They taste just as good. It’s a great recipe!

  • Cinny

    Oh, I love this idea. It sounds absolutely delicious even when heated up.

  • Meghan Buchman

    Totally pinned! Totally making it.

  • Jenna Wood

    I’ve been wanting to try something like this with sauteed mushrooms, cheese, bacon, and eggs. I always forget to get a new muffin pan though- mine are not safe to cook without liners!

  • Jenn

    I was just looking for another cook-ahead meal for breakfast. Yum. Can’t wait to make these.

  • Patty

    I love muffin foods. Mornings are rarely rushed around here as we are retired. But it’s nice to have things in the freezer for when I’m feeling lazy

    • Jenna Wood

      These would be great frozen, I didn’t really consider that. I often skip breakfast so any shortcuts are always appreciated!

  • Joely Smith

    I TOTALLY pinned this and am absolutely going to make some SOON! They sound amazing – and as you said SO easy – nothing to do but heat up! Way better than cereal or just toast which is what I usually have. I can’t wait to make these THANK YOU!

  • Libby's Library

    I am so gonna be making these. They are perfect for busy mornings. I think that I might substitute bacon for the sausage when I’m making them for myself. When my strapping grandsons are here, I’ll do a meat lovers version with sausage, ham and bacon!
