Hearty sausage egg muffins with greens

I’ve tried several egg muffin recipes over the years, but this one is a clear winner with my family.  My husband and growing farm boys love the flavor and the heartiness of the ingredients.  

I love how these muffins incorporate plenty of healthy protein from our pastured eggs and homegrown pork, along with a helping of nutritious greens, and red onions for flavor.  Optionally, you can add a bit of shredded cheddar if you like.  I recommend raw cheddar!

By the way, no worries if you don’t have access to homegrown pork like we do!  Any ground pork will do, or you might want to check out my tips for finding local pastured meats.

One thing to keep in mind is that my homegrown ground pork comes seasoned with rosemary and garlic.  If your pork is completely unseasoned, you may want to add 1 teaspoon dried rosemary and 1 clove minced garlic.  Alternatively, you could add a bit of dried sage and fennel instead of the rosemary and garlic.

Tips for making sausage egg muffins with greens

While you could combine all the ingredients and pour the batter into the muffin cups, I prefer to layer each ingredient into the cups.  This helps to distribute the ingredients evenly between all 12 muffins.  That way I can be sure that each muffin contains roughly the same amount of sausage and greens.

Sometimes I even add a bit of salt and pepper directly into each muffin cup instead of mixing it in with the eggs.  Maybe it’s just me, but I never trust the salt and pepper to incorporate evenly throughout a beaten egg mixture.  It always seems to sink to the bottom.

Either way, I think you’re going to love these hearty sausage egg muffins with greens!
