So, I tried something new last night, and it turned out AMAZING!
We had had a full, late lunch after church, so I wanted to make something quick and light for dinner. I saw this idea somewhere online, so here’s my version of it: Ham & Cheese Breakfast Cups! It was a huge hit at the Houts home — delicious and fun!
What you need:
Slices of GF deli ham
2 TBS milk (or milk substitute)
salt & pepper to taste
First, spray muffin cups with cooking spray. Then place 1 slice of ham in each cup (I like Hormel Natural Choice GF Smoked Deli Ham).
Next, with fork scramble eggs, milk, salt & pepper in small mixing bowl.
(I used 8 eggs for 10 muffin cups.)
Then carefully pour egg mixture into muffin cups.
Sprinkle cheese on top.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until eggs are set
(not jiggly when you move pan).
Serve with GF toast and fresh fruit — ENJOY!
These are yummy and CUTE! And they are fun to eat too! I love that they are super easy to make and quick too.
Sausage Egg Muffin Cups
What you need to make Sausage Egg Muffin Cups:
1 dozen large eggs
1 thawed GF sausage roll
1/2 cup milk or milk substitute
pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk eggs, pepper and milk in large bowl. Fry sausage in large skillet; drain well.
Carefully spoon egg mixture into muffin cups filling about halfway. Then spoon a tablespoon or 2 sausage into each cup. (This recipe gave me 18 muffin cups.)
Top each cup with cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes or until egg is set & cooked all the way through.
Top with additional cheese if desired.
Serve with gluten-free toast & fresh fruit.
If you have leftovers, keep them in the fridge and warm up for a snack or quick lunch.
I love this idea not only for breakfast but for a quick dinner (or lunch!). On the weekends, this is a great brunch. This was our dinner Tuesday night! (See my page “GF Tips” for how to prepare corn tortillas so they taste great. (And remember — I’m feeding gluten-free people and non-gluten-free people, thus the flour tortillas for the latter.) I served fresh pineapple with this meal — YUM!
Sausage & egg on toasted gluten-free bread
Sausage & egg in corn tortillas
Sausage & Egg Wraps (6-8 servings)
Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 10 min.
1 roll ground sausage (most of these are GF, but double check)
Corn tortillas, warmed
Flour tortillas, warmed
Fry sausage in large skillet over medium heat. Drain well.
When sausage is cooked through, add eggs.
Mix with spatula, stirring frequently until eggs are done. Remove from heat.
As eggs are cooking, prepare tortillas.
Take each corn tortilla and add some of the egg mixture (for GF eaters) then sprinkle cheese on top. Do the same with each flour tortilla (for gluten-eaters). Top with shredded cheese.
OPTIONAL: serve with fresh fruit.
