Any recipe that lets me sneak in extra veggies for my picky eating teenagers is a win-win in my book. These spinach sausage egg muffins will have you starting your day off with a healthy dose of protein and veggies as you head out the door. These will last about a week in the refrigerator, however, I have not tried freezing them, but I will definitely try that and update here!
Easy ingredient swaps
The best part about egg muffins is you can get super creative with the ingredients, AND they’re the perfect way to sneak in extra veggies. After I made these I kicked myself for not adding in mushrooms, but there’s always next time, right? Here are a few swaps you could consider:
- Bacon instead of sausage
- Kale instead of spinach
- Skip the cheese
- Add in peppers, mushrooms, or any other vegetables you’d like to try

Do I need to cook the sausage first or just crumble it into the egg mixture?
