Sausage Egg Cups

Sausage!!!!  Can I tell you how much I love sausage?  Well, I am going to anyway.  I love that you can make it sweet, mild, hot, savory…I mean how versatile?

When I think of sausage I think breakfast and pizza.  So of course I had to make sausage breakfast cups.  This is another easy recipe that can be made ahead.  Heat and eat!!  Right now that is so important.  Myself and two of my children are doing a whole30, so easy and tasty is super important!

I am not sure what is harder though…dealing with my own phases of whole30 or dealing with my kids phases of whole30.  To be honest it is much harder to cook for 3 doing Whole30 and 2 that aren’t!  When I was the only one doing Whole30, I could eat scrambled eggs for dinner or leftover veggie soup for lunch and dinner.  I don’t mind leftovers.  However, trying to keep 2 teenagers happy while doing a Whole30 is a whole other level of difficult.

That is why I love these Sausage Egg Cups!!  It means one meal this week is done.  Check it off the list!!
