bacon, bacon, bacon [3 slices]


Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In a large saute pan, over medium high heat, brown Sausage for about 5 minutes, or until the sausage is no longer pink. Remove from heat and drain
3. Whisk together eggs, milk, butter, salt, and baking powder.  Season with black pepper. Stir in 1.5 cups cheddar cheese. 
4. Lightly spray 2 12-cupcake pans with oil.
5. Layer bottom of cups with fillings of choice to halfway mark

8. Bake for 20 minutes.  
**only cook them until they are no longer runny. Then allow them to cool before placing them in a large freezer bag. As they cool, they will thicken up. By doing this, they are not rubbery when they are taken out of the freezer and reheated.**
Makes 18 muffins

**if you want to line the muffin cups use aluminum liners instead of paper.
**I made two different kinds: 
Bacon, broccoli, and cheese
and
Sausage, green pepper, and tater tot
By adding filling bits separately you can make any number of combinations you want!

Throw them in a freezer bag and just pop them in the microwave for a minute for a quick healthy breakfast on the go!
