Easy Breakfast Muffins

These muffins are easy, delicious, and provide a whole meal in one bite. We made these for our friends during a visit and everyone loved them! These muffins are easy to prepare and store well for breakfast during the week. Give them a try!

Easy Breakfast Muffins (Makes 24 Muffins)
Time: 2hrs-overnight Prep and 35mins Cook 

- 1 loaf of French Bread/Wheat Bread cubed
- 1lb of Sausage ( I used chicken, but use whatever you like or have on hand)
- 1-2c of Hash Browns
- 1c of Cheese
- 1/2 tsp of Mustard Powder
- 1/4 tsp each of Garlic and Onion Powder
- 1-2tsp of Salt and a few dashes of pepper
- 5-6 Eggs
- 2c of Milk
- 1/2 chopped Onion
- 2tbsp chopped Parsley
    1. Mix together your milk, eggs, garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder, s&p, cheese, and parsley. 
    2. Pour mixture over your cubed bread and place it covered in the fridge overnight. If you don't have time to do this the evening prior try to let the bread sit in the mixture for at least 2-3 hours. 
    3. Take sausage out of the casing and crumble into a medium heated pan. Once the sausage starts to cook add your chopped onion and hash browns.
    4. Cook sausage thoroughly and drain if necessary, set aside to cool. 
    5. Once cooled place the mixture in the fridge until the bread mixture is ready.  (If you prefer to make a casserole, mix bread and sausage together and place the mixture in a casserole dish in the fridge)
    6. When you're ready to make the muffins, grease two muffin pans and heat the oven to 350. 
    7. Place the mixture into the muffin pans and cook for 30-35 minutes, during the last few minutes of cook time feel free to put some extra cheese on top of each muffin.  
    Serve them up with your favorite breakfast side and enjoy! If you want to be daring, top your muffin with a little maple syrup or hot sauce.
