As I posted last week, breakfast cups have become an easy addition to simplifying our school morning breakfasts. They freeze great, so all we have to do is take out whatever we need the night before, put them in the refridgerator, and reheat them in the morning. They can be reheated in the oven or microwave. We prefer to use the oven.
Now for the recipes!
Sausage, Egg, and Mushroom Breakfast Cups
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of diced mushrooms
1 cup of cooked breakfast sausage, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Fill muffin cups almost to the top. Cook at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes until the tops are browned. Makes approximately 18 breakfast cups.
These can be made with any vegetables of your choice, as well as more or less cheese, sausage, or veggies depending on your preference.
Pancake Breakfast Cups
You can use your favorite pancake recipe for these, Bisquick, or follow my recipe below.
2 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 3/4 cups of milk
1/4 cup of melted butter
Combine the above ingredients together mixing the dry ingredients first. After all of the ingredients have been combined well, add:
1 cup of sausage crumbles
3/4 cups of chocolate chips
Pour into greased muffin cups almost filling the cup and cook at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes until slightly browned on top. Serve warm with or without syrup, depending on how sweet you like things! Makes approximately 14 muffin cups.
My husband and I both preferred the texture of these better than regular pancakes, and they were so much easier to make as I didn’t have to turn them one by one.
I use individual muffin cups for these recipes as I can fit more in my small oven at once, but muffin tins work just as well. As long as they are greased well, there is no need to use liners unless you just prefer to use them.
I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we have and that they help simplify your mornings. Let me know if you have any questions about the recipes or variations that you think we should try!
