Sausage Muffin Cups (GF)
1 box (12 each) Little Sizzler’s Original Sausage Links (see note)
6 large Fresh Eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups Shredded Gluten-Free Cheese (see note)
¼ cup Red Bell Pepper, finely chopped
3 cups Frozen Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Browns (see note)
3 tbsp. Unsalted Butter, melted
1/8 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
¼ cup Fresh Chives, finely snipped
Cook sausage according to package directions, then set aside and cut each link into 5 pieces before adding to muffin cups. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, cheese and red peppers. Then set aside. In another bowl, combine hash browns, butter, salt and pepper. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan. Divide mixture equally between the 12 muffin cups of the pan. Press mixture up walls and across the bottom before placing in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 12 minutes. Remove muffin pan from oven and place 5 pieces of cooked sausage in each muffin cup. Now spoon egg mixture evenly into the 12 muffin cups and top with a sprinkling of chives. Place back in oven for 13 to 15 minutes or until set. Serve at once.
Note: You have to look for Gluten-Free products because all packaged brands are not gluten-free. Hormel’s Original little sizzlers and ore-ida’s shredded hash browns are labeled gluten-free. Using shredded cheese, there are several brands that are mostly gluten-free. But you need to check each type of shredded cheese to be sure.
Note: You could substitute bacon or ham for the sausage links too.
