Easy Sausage Egg and Cheese Muffin Breakfast

A filling, healthy breakfast doesn’t have to be complex and time consuming. With kids going 10 different directions in the morning, it’s easy to get caught in the cereal, toast, or breakfast bar routine. Though, let’s be real, I should have just stopped at cereal. Please tell me that my kids aren’t the only ones that would eat cereal all day, every day if I allowed them.  With kids that like to sleep in or this mom that gets busy in a hurry and has to make time to fuel herself – easy, filling, and fast has the be the way to go.

We all love a good fast-food muffin breakfast sandwich. Maybe *I* would eat those all day every day if I could! But maintaining a budget, conserving time, and choosing a higher standard of health is more of a priority. So we make our own. Morning rush does not provide time for “made from scratch” so we give in to convenience items and have a quick and delicious breakfast.

Do you realize that it’s taking you longer to read and print this than it is to make this breakfast?

And this breakfast muffin is so simple, so basic. (but just the way I like it) You certainly can choose to spiffy it up a bit with vegetables (peppers, mushrooms), ham instead of sausage, leftover grilled chicken or frozen chicken patty, fresh herbs or seasonings, or add a little ketchup, salsa, or Tabasco sauce if that’s your thing. (cook times may vary though) Don’t over think it.

Additional Perks!

Cost is important. Especially when we’re on a budget. So I love this option for us even more. Keep in mind that the average fast food muffin is just under $3.00 EACH. Did you see my eyes just bug out of my head right there?! And when I have teenagers who can down 2 of them faster than I can finish 1, that hits the pocket book pretty hard. I did a little comparison of what I get locally.

  • English Muffins (24 pack) – $2.67  or 11 cents each.
  • Frozen Sausage Patties (12 pack) – $5.48 or 46 cents each
  • American Cheese (16 slices) – $4.75 or 30 cents each
  • Egg (1 dozen farm fresh) $4.00 or 33 cents each (price is much less for store bought)

If you’re doing the math, that works out to $1.20 each! In 2 minutes. In your pajamas. Not leaving the house. Not burning gas! You can’t beat that, really.  And because I made it myself, I know that it’s cooked thoroughly, cheese is melty, and the muffin is under or overdone.
