It is always fun when I get to create new recipes for my family and friends. My family enjoys being the testers and my kids love helping me out in the kitchen. My kids want to be chefs and I encourage them to get messy and have fun in the kitchen. I’ve never written down any recipes I’ve created because I have it all up top, but for Johnsonville I made an exception.

When Johnsonville asked me to create a holiday brunch recipe I was very excited to participate. We all know how hectic holidays are especially when you have to do the shopping, prepping, cooking, serving and cleaning. I like to make fast, easy dishes that tastes great. I also like a meal that I can prep at least a day ahead.

I decided to use Johnsonville Maple Brown Sugar and Honey breakfast sausage for this recipe. Those flavors together are amazing and I knew I could create something that not only looked great on your plate but tasted even better.

What I like about my easy recipe is you can eat it anytime of the day. The 12 that I made was gone in one day. I’ve made this before but I kicked it up a notch with Johnsonville breakfast sausage and a few more veggies.

My dish is called: Mini Egg Omelets stuffed with Johnsonville Sausage

Yield: 12 mini omelets
Level: Easy

12 cup muffin pan
1 package of Johnsonville maple brown sugar and honey breakfast sausage (after cooking chopped)
6 to10 large eggs (more or less whatever fills up all 12 cups)
1 tomato chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1 yellow onion chopped
Sharp cheddar cheese grated or chopped (as much as you want)
Cooking spray
Pinch of salt
Black pepper

Pre- heat oven to 300 to 350 depending on your oven.
Crack eggs in mixing bowl, beat, add chopped veggies, salt, pepper and cheese put to side.
Spray frying pan and heat. Once hot add Johnsonville sausage and fry till done.
When sausage cools chop and add a few pieces to each cup in sprayed muffin pan.
Next, add egg mixture over sausage. I used a glass measuring cup to pour mixture in muffin pan which was easy for me. If your mixing bowl has a spout then use that.
Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. Let cool then pop out of pan and enjoy!!

I also served hash browns made in the muffin pan too, coffee and egg challah rolls. We enjoyed this dish and my kids loved the breakfast sausages so much they keep asking for them. They are addictive. Try all the flavors.

How easy is that? Let me know what you think. Did you add anything else? Did you make 24 mini instead of the 12? Did your family enjoy?

Disclosure: Johnsonville I am always grateful for creating a new dish for you. Johnsonville provided me with a gift card and coupons to bring you this recipe.
