Prep time

15 min.

Cook time

25 min.

  • Cooking spray
  • 18 large eggs
  • 6 egg whites, large
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 20 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • 6 turkey sausage links (I used frozen, ready-to-eat)
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp table salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Crack the eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Beat together. Set aside.

In a food processor, pulse the onion and sausage into crumbled pieces. Add them to the egg mixture. Using a sharp knife, chop the spinach and cut the tomatoes into small pieces. Add salt and pepper. Mix well.

Fill each muffin tin 3/4 full. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a food thermometer reads an internal temperature of 160°F.
