These scrumptious & savory turkey sausage & sweet potato breakfast cups are easy, make ahead, freezer friendly, Whole30 and Paleo!
An adorable and dear college friend borrowed my kitchen recently to make these turkey sausage & sweet potato breakfast cups. She is a super healthy eater, so she made these to take back to her dorm to freeze and pull out as needed for healthy breakfast on the go.
Turkey sausage: Maddy was a brand snob about turkey sausage until she found one at Aldi and loved it. She discusses it in the video below. Either way, the sausage used for this recipe is the breakfast style turkey sausage in a roll~not link sausage that you slice.
Sweet potatoes: Roasting the sweet potatoes is easy; it can be done a day or two ahead as well. I often roast a big batch of sweet potatoes and keep them in the fridge to use for several days.
Milk Options: Maddy used almond milk for these, but you can use any that you prefer. For those of us who love dairy, cow’s milk is fine (and what I prefer).
Spinach or Kale: To get a healthy dose of fresh greens in these breakfast cups, spinach or kale work well. Maddy and I prefer spinach for its tender leaf. If using kale, stems should be removed.
Fresh peppers: The small bags of mini peppers that are found in produce are perfect for this recipe. They have all the colors and are so tender and easy to prep. I love them so much better than large peppers.
Make ahead & freezer friendly: These can be made ahead and frozen. For each breakfast cup, simply take it out of the ziplock bag (frozen), put it on a plate, and microwave it for 6 minutes on 50% power. It will be perfect.
These egg cups can be made in one 9 x 13 baking dish if desired, but baking time will need to be adjusted. For breakfast on the go, I will always make these in my muffin pan:-)
In the video below, sweet Maddy gives us her tips on making these breakfast cups. She is so adorable and articulate on camera. She may have a future in food blogging one day:-)
