Egg Sausage Breakfast Muffins
Egg Sausage Breakfast Muffins are an easy to make and healthy way to start your day. Make a batch on the weekend then take one to go on your way out the door on busy weekday mornings.
Good morning, friends! I've got a recipe for egg sausage breakfast muffins that I can't wait to share with you. I fully realize that sausage muffins sound a little strange. We're so used to thinking of muffins as being sweet carby things that saying something like sausage and egg muffins sounds almost sacrilegious.
But bear with me, these low-carb savory muffins are about to make your mornings so much tastier. And easier. And healthier.
Why you'll love egg sausage breakfast muffins:
- They taste like a soft sausage patty and are absolutely bursting with breakfast flavor.
- They are 100% grab-and-go breakfast approved.
- You'll find over 12 grams of protein in each muffin!
- Egg sausage muffins are excellent for breakfast meal prep. Make a batch on Sunday then have breakfast all week long!
- They are a great way to add healthy eggs to your diet.
- Even though these are breakfast egg muffins, you can easily serve them for dinner. I have more than once! A couple of sausage muffins and a big salad makes a simple (and delicious) dinner.
See those beautiful brown eggs up there? We eat them nearly every day. They help to fill me up in the morning and they're so healthy that I feel great about feeding them to my daughter. Did you know that one egg has 14 important nutrients and 50% of your daily vitamin B12 requirement? You can find out more about how healthy they are here.
I feel really lucky to live in Canada where Canadian egg farmers take pride in caring for their hens. All Canadian egg farmers adhere to the same National Animal Care and food-safety programs that ensure hens are well cared for and your eggs are clean and fresh. It makes me feel good about serving eggs to my family.
Eggs are produced in every Canadian province (including the Northwest Territories!) by more than 1000 family-run farms. And since local eggs are available no matter where you purchase your eggs, you know that your eggs are always fresh. It normally takes less than a week for eggs to travel from the farm to the grocery store!
How to make egg muffins:
These sausage egg muffins are super easy to make. I should really call them Easy Egg Muffins.
- Cook the onion, pepper, and sausage then dump them and all the other ingredients into a bowl. At one time. No need to make this complicated.
- Mix mix mix.
- Now drop them by the 1/4 cup onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. If you've opted to add cheese, sprinkle a little extra on top. You know you want to.
- Now all you have to do it bake them.
See how easy that was? This egg muffin recipe is seriously foolproof.
Are egg sausage muffins paleo and Whole30?
If you skip the cheese and use the nutritional yeast option instead, then they are 100% paleo.
But they're not Whole30. While all of the ingredients (minus the cheese, of course) are Whole30 approved, mimicking things like muffins is not. My recommendation? Wait until after your 30 days then include these in your reintroduction phase.
Please promise me you'll make these sausage egg and cheese muffins. I know you're going to love them!

What do you mean by green pepper? Green jalapeño pepper? Green bell pepper?
Yes, 1 green bell pepper. 🙂
These looks wonderful….printing it so I can make it for breakfast next week. Thanks so much.
I hope you love them as much as we do!
Just made these and they are wonderful! super easy to make and feel they will make for a great grab and go. I was able to get 20 out of the recipe and the kiddos actually ate them! double score!
I’m so happy to hear they were a hit!
Haven’t actually got the baking done yet, but I love the concept ;P
I will be using venison mince instead of the sausages and regular flour instead of almond flour… i’ll let you know how it goes.
Good work Kristen!
Good call on the venison mince! Yum!!
Do you think I could make the dough the night before and leave in the fridge to bake in the morning? Or even freeze it for later? Thanks!
I haven’t tried it but I have no doubt that it would work just fine if you made the dough ahead and baked it the next day. 🙂
