recipe: egg, sausage, kale & red pepper muffins

I have never liked eggs. My earliest memory of them are of being (kindly) compelled to eat a scrambled version. My second earliest egg memory is of my sister and I begging mom for “eggs in pancakes”. We wanted to mask the taste with delicious syrup!

Now that I am “grown up” and inching closer to 30 with each passing day, I have determined to find a way of eating eggs that I enjoy. I saw this paleo recipe and thought it sounded good and worth a shot.

These muffins are delicious! I might not be fully converted to eggs, but this muffin version filled with delicious flavors seems a good start.

You will need:
4 eggs
1/4 lb. of ground sausage (I used Italian sausage, nice and spicy!)
A handful of kale washed and chopped
1/4 cup of red pepper, chopped
salt and pepper

egg muffin

Pre-heat the oven to 350°.
Brown the sausage and then set aside to cool.
Whisk the eggs and then add the sausage, kale, and red pepper.
Season with salt and pepper.
Fill muffin tins 2/3 full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.

I used a mini-muffin pan and it worked beautifully. You can store them in the frig and then re-heat in the oven, but they won’t last long. Too delicious!
