Sausage Egg Bites

Every year our family gets together for Super Bowl and we do it pot luck style, this year I wanted to try something a little different. Back on 1-10-09 I was doing my nightly commenting when I stumbled across a great looking item on Elizabeth’s Edible. She had made Mini Frittatas with Ham and Cheese. I thought they looked perfect for my Super Bowl contribution, I did however make a few changes from her original recipe but I still think they turned out awesome and I do believe the family will love them. Thank you Elizabeth for the great recipe idea, I truly love your site.

4 - Eggs
6 - Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage Links
¼ - Onion (finely minced)
¼ Tsp. - Cayenne
½ Tsp. - Johnny’s Garlic Season
½ Tsp. - Dry Parsley
1/3 C. - Cheddar Cheese (shredded)

In a small frying pan heat 1 Tbs. of EVOO over medium high heat, cook the onion and sausage until the onions are soft and the sausage in browned, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool while you get the egg mixture ready. In a bowl crack in the eggs and whisk in the seasoning and cheese, then stir in the onion and sausage. Place 1 Tbs. of the egg mixture into a mini muffin pan section and top with a few more pieces of cheese. I was able to fill 16 out of the 24 sections of my pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until set. Serve warm or room temperature with some hot sauce, salsa or even sour cream for dipping.

my mini muffin tin doesn't get used for savory things often enough. this will do quite nicely--they're the perfect finger food. :)

I've seen breakfast muffins made with muffin batter, but using eggs is such a clever idea!
