Muffin Tin Egg Bites

Start to finish: 30 minutes

Yields: 12 Egg Bites

12 eggs

¾ cup turkey sausage

½ cup fingerling potatoes

½ cup shredded cheese of choice

Paper or silicone muffin tin liners

Preheat oven to 450℉. Cook sausage by heating a large pan. Once the pan is warm, break up the sausage into small pieces while cooking thoroughly throughout. When sausage is cooked, set it aside in a separate container. Steam fingerling potatoes and cut into half or quarter pieces and set aside. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and a variety of spices to one’s liking. Some options include paprika, parsley salt, garlic powder and pepper. Once eggs are thoroughly mixed, add cheese, potatoes and sausage and mix until well combined. Line a muffin tin with paper or silicone liners and fill with egg mixture, about ¾ full. Place in the oven for fifteen minutes, or until eggs are completely cooked through and solid. Store refrigerated in a tupperware to enjoy for up to five days.
