Cheesy Hash Brown Breakfast Muffins
Whether you’re in need of a quick, grab and go breakfast or a dish to impress at Sunday brunch, these healthy breakfast muffins will not disappoint. I’ve included recipes for both a meatless and turkey sausage version. The calories and macronutrients surprisingly come out almost identical with 75 and 82 calories, respectively.
I know what you’re thinking. “Wow, I could eat the entire pan for under 1,000 calories.” Okay, maybe that’s just me. Moving on.
As a leftovers-hater, I’m pleased to say that these are perfect reheated, making them an ideal dish to make in bulk and use throughout the week. And don’t think you’re handcuffed to breakfast only!
Like every recipe, I’ve done my best to keep it as simple as possible with frozen vegetables and 100% ready-to-go ingredients. Just check out the video below for a look at how easy it is to make these healthy breakfast muffins.
What You’ll Need for These Healthy Breakfast Muffins
With a fairly short ingredient list, the biggest variability will be your eggs and dairy. Feel free to go with full-fat cheese or swap eggs for egg whites to get a fluffier, denser finished product. The meatless version has slightly more fat due to extra eggs and added parmesan. You can really tell the texture difference between the two.
For the turkey sausage recipe, you could add bacon or any other meat you’d like. The pre-cooked turkey sausage crumbles are just as quick and easy as it gets. And for the veggies, you can substitute fresh shredded potatoes or chopped peppers and onions, but it may add a small amount of prep time.
One final note before you get to the recipes: Be sure to let your hash browns and meat mixture cool before adding the egg mixture. Patience is a virtue, right?
