1 lb ground pork

1 tsp ground sage

½ tsp ground thyme

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

1 tsp brown sugar

¾ cup freshly minced onion and green pepper*

¾ shredded cheddar cheese*

6 eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine ground pork, sage, thyme, paprika, cumin, salt, pepper and brown sugar. Mix thoroughly and put equal amounts into 12 muffin cups. Mold mixture along the bottom and up sides to form cups.

Add one tablespoon onion/pepper mix and one tablespoon cheese to each cup. Fill with egg. Bake for 20-25 minutes until eggs are set and slightly browned on top.

*Feel free to use whatever kind of vegetables and cheese that you prefer or have on hand.

Hack: To prevent sticking, immediately run a knife around the edge of the cups after removing them from the oven and gently loosen the sides and bottom from the cup. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and remove from the cup.

Hack #2: Eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months. To freeze egg cups, place on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer until firm. Seal in a freezer bag or container and store in the freezer. To reheat, thaw in refrigerator overnight and microwave at 20-second intervals just until heated through.

Hack #3: Some egg cup recipes suggest that you just crack an egg over the top. Yolks and whites require different reheating times, resulting in (either) dried-out whites or unheated yolks. Using beaten eggs will alleviate this problem.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this hack here. Though literally I wouldn’t have thought that with application of eggs on the cup, it becomes a lot more easier to remove them and all. Wow! Thank you for sharing this here m this is exactly better for bachelor’s like us who would want to do something quite well and get the perfect fishing right. This is superb to gain access too.

    1. Thank you for your comments, Abel.  Being single myself, I also like to be able to make something nice for a meal without a lot of effort and have some leftover for the rest of the week.  My good friend Penny, who recommended this recipe to me, is also single.  I guess great minds think alike!!!

      Please let me know how you like the finished product!

  2. Hi there, Thanks a lot for sharing another incredible work of yours. I am very glad for this opportunity of coming through this nice recipe and review on sausage egg breakfast cups. I can’t wait to actually wait to try this recipe at home. I have bookmarked this already and if it takes me 3 times to perfect this, I am willing to take it.

    1. This is a simple recipe and I have the feeling that you’re going to get it right the first time!   Thank you for your comments!

  3. I guess your article is about how to easily cook breakfast. I sometimes cook breakfast easy and fast on the microwave with the ingredients that you describe. I really like this kind of breakfast. The breakfast on the photo seems delicious. 

    I really like your overall blog, it seems unique. I like the fact that egg cups can be refrigerated for days to be consumed later. I sometimes like to cook in bulk and freeze my food for later days. I think I will try this recipe when I’ll cook eggs and sausages. 

    1. I’m glad you find my hacks helpful.  I think we all feel rushed in the morning so it’s nice to have something you can grab and go.  Enjoy!

  4. I love eggs, and this is the perfect recipe for me! I saw that this had a lot of ingredients, so I expected the preparation / cooking procedure to be more complicated, but turns out it is very straight forward! It’s amazing how you can put these in an easy way for people like me to follow! I saw that you used some herbs and spices in your recipes (which I really love). Will it be ok if I add some more my own herbs and spices up? Will this affect any of the taste? 

    Also, I love your hacks! I was thinking the same about the eggs but you explained it well on why it’s best to beat it before placing it into the cup. Great thinking and great recipe. I have to admit that I am not a morning person, so I have decided to make this at night and follow your instructions in storing them into my refrigerator for a easy heat up the next morning before working! Thank you once again for another awesome recipe, Cynthia! Keep up the delicious recipes coming! 

    1. Thank you for your kind comments!  The beauty of making dishes from scratch is that you can put whatever you want in them.  Please let me know what spices you used and how you like the result.

  5. Hello Cynthia! I really love your post. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Sausage egg is a tasty scramble of scrambled eggs, cheese, and pieces of sausage. Great for a Sunday morning family breakfast! I love to add so much of whatever type of cheese works for this recipe. I will love to try it out yours
