If you are anything like me you have a really hard time eating breakfast in the morning. We hear time and time again “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”, yet we still decide to run out the door with our to-go mugs of coffee and nothing in our tummies. Lunch time comes around and we gorge ourselves because we’re STARVING, then the rest of the day we are tired, full, and wishing we could unbutton our pants.
This is an easy recipe to make on a Sunday and have an egg muffins for each day of the week. So easy that even your husband can make it!
1/2lb of Pork Chorizo
1/4 bag of Simple Potatoes ( Hash Browns)
3/4 cup Shredded Cheddar
1tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/2tsp Onion Powder
1/2 cup Milk
4 oz Spinach
Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees
First, we are going to take our cast iron skillet (because cast iron is the best – trust me!) and place two tbsp. of vegetable oil on the skillet and heat to medium. Once skillet is hot add potatoes in a thin layer along bottom of the pan. Press down and cook for 7 minutes till potatoes are brown. Add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, flip and press. Cook another 7 minutes, then remove from skillet.
Next, we are going to cook our Pork Chorizo in the same skillet you used for the potatoes. You can use regular breakfast sauage, bacon or chicken. I like to use Chorizo because it adds and extra bit of flavor. If you haven’t had Chorizo yet – Thank me later!
Heat skillet to med-high heat. Once hot place chorizo in pan and cook till brown in color. Normally it will take about 7-10 minutes to cook thoroughly.
While your chorizo is cooking grab a mixing bowl and whisk together eggs, milk, spices and cheddar cheese.
When your chorizo is cooked use a slotted spoon to remove from pan and into mixing bowl. In the same pan you cooked your chorizo, place veggie of your chose (I love spinach). Sauté in the juices left by the meat. About 1 minute is all you need.
Spray your 12 cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Next, take you hash browns and make a thin layer of potatoes at the bottom of each cup and pour your egg mixture on top.
Bake a 350 degree for 25 minutes and voila! You have the most amazing quick breakfast for the week!
