Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300° F. Cook broccoli florets in ¼-inch water over high heat in a small pot with a lid until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Or microwave broccoli in a small glass bowl with 2 Tbs. water on high for 1 minute. Drain well.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and salt. Add the broccoli, sausage, green onions, and cheese. Stir well and pour into 12 muffin cups coated with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Bake until the tops are just barely set, about 30 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before running a knife around the edges and removing from the pan.

  • Place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to four days. (You can also freeze them up to a month in an airtight container, and thaw overnight if you plan to use the next day) In the morning, warm in the microwave on medium power for about 45 seconds.
