Making breakfast for a crowd?  Kitchen hack: Bake eggs in muffin tins to save time!  These Sausage and Egg Muffin Sandwiches are a favorite around our house!But then Dad came back one afternoon with a little towel in his hand.  I sniffed and sniffed at that towel.  It didn’t smell like the squirrel in the backyard or my friend from across the street.  I debated carrying the towel off to chew on it, but I decided to go for my tennis ball instead.  But then the next day, the strangest thing happened.  Dad and Mom came back home (play time!), and they brought in this strange, squirmy, crying thing that smelled like that towel (they told me his name was Robbie).  I liked the towel, so therefore I liked this new addition, too.

Robbie-and-Max2I feel like it’s my job to protect Robbie (that’s what my Dad calls my new friend).  I sleep next to his chair to make sure he’s safe.  He makes a lot of noise, though.  Whenever he barks, Dad and Mom walk around the room holding him.  And I walk along, too.  I figure it’s the least I can do to help.  My sister doesn’t help out much.  She just sits on the couch watching the parade go by.  (But somehow she continues to get treats from grandma.)  And at night, I crawl into the bottom of his crib to sleep.  There are tons of blankets down there.  I know my Dad put them there just for me!

Robbie-and-Max1Speaking of nights, Dad has been barking like me lately.  (He claims he has a ‘cold’, but I know he’s just trying to get in touch with his inner dog.)  Between Dad’s barking and my brother’s crying, there hasn’t been much sleep going on in our house.  Well, except for my sister.  She just sleeps through everything.  She’s so spoiled.  So I decided to help Dad out and make him some delicious Sausage and Egg Muffin Sandwiches for breakfast.  You should have seen the look on his face when he came downstairs and saw that I had baked breakfast!

Making breakfast for a crowd?  Kitchen hack: Bake eggs in muffin tins to save time!  These Sausage and Egg Muffin Sandwiches are a favorite around our house!These Sausage and Egg Muffin Sandwiches are super easy to make.  Trust me.  I’m a dog, and I was still able to make them.  I grabbed Dad’s pack of Johnsonville® Vermont Maple Syrup Breakfast Sausages (mmm…sausage!).  My Dad loves Vermont maple syrup, and these sausages have just a hint of sweetness.  Delicious!  Well, at least they smelled delicious.  I was kind enough to not eat them all while they were cooking.  I think that definitely deserves an extra treat, right?

I served these sandwiches on cinnamon + raisin English muffins.  The maple syrup from the sausage combined with the cinnamon + raisin muffins is a great combo!  (To be fair, my little sister was the one who toasted the English muffins.  But she needed help turning on the toaster oven.  Ugh…sisters…)

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup fresh spinach
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 Johnsonville® Vermont Maple Syrup breakfast patties
  • 4 English muffins split and lightly toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Grease 4 non-stick muffin cups with olive oil or baking spray. (Note: I prefer to use an over-sized muffin tin here so that the eggs are the same size as the English muffin.)

For the Scrambled Egg Version

  • Divide the spinach evenly between the muffin cups.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, black pepper and salt; divide mixture evenly between the muffin cups.
  • Bake eggs for 20-22 minutes, or until fully cooked.

For the Whole Egg Version

  • Lay fresh spinach on the bottom of the toasted English muffin.
  • Crack one egg into each muffin tin, taking care not to break yolk. (Note: The extra water is omitted for this version.) Sprinkle pepper and salt evenly on top of the 4 eggs.
  • Bake eggs for 15-17 minutes, or until fully cooked.

For Sandwiches

  • While eggs are baking, cook sausage according to the package instructions.
  • Assemble sandwiches with a layer of egg and sausage.
  • Serve hot.

  1. HAHAHA! What a fun post! It made me chuckle all the way through! Maximus is one talented dog, David! And aww sweet Robbie looks adorable – both those dogs have got his back for sure!
    I think I might need to borrow Maximus for a bit, cos I sure could get used to a dog cooking me breakfast – especially when it’s eggs and sausage!
    Happy Friday my Upstate NYC friend – or Upstate NYC friend’s dog – depending on who’s reading!
    Hope y’all weekend is fabulous!

    1. Haha! Thanks so much, Shashi! You should’ve seen the look on my face when I saw that Max not only made breakfast but wrote this post, too. I coulda kissed that dog! 🙂 Hope you guys had an awesome weekend down there!

  2. Hi David! And I think my dogs are smart! They’ve never fixed me breakfast but they sure would eat it if given the chance! Wylie is the breakfast hound – he has eaten an entire pan of cinnamon rolls and another time a pound of cooked bacon! 🙂

  3. Hi David! Had to come back and say Maximus is downright adorable! And I hope you are feeling better or is it just a ploy so Laura will let you sleep? I’m kidding! Y’all get some rest and have a peaceful weekend! 🙂

  4. Thanks for posting for your dad, pup. He’s been posting so much that I was worried that he might not be able to get out of the house, and of course he needs to get out of the house if he’s going to get you a Cristmas present! Also, thank you for not eating the sausage that goes with these sandwiches. My dog would never have done that.

    1. You’re right, Jeff. I just gave Dad my Christmas list last night. It has rawhides, rawhides, chews and more rawhides on it. Oh, and a new pan for cooking breakfast. You have no idea what happened to that sausage after I took these photos. Let’s just say Dad’s sandwich was a little short on the sausage! 🙂

  5. Hahahhaa what a nice posting, David. Love it and I need Maximus in life 🙂 These muffin sandwiches is to die for. I love having savory breakfast using muffin tin. It’s so easy and taste super delicious!

    1. They are indeed a great sandwich to stock up on in the freezer! We’ve become big fans of freezer meals lately, Kathy…I think the lack of sleep and our affinity for eating out of the freezer are most definitely related! 🙂

    1. Hahaha! I dont think that crib was really made for dogs or cats, Dannii! Maximus just likes to find little nooks and claim them as his own. Blanket storage? No way. More like dog napping spot! I love the idea of keeping these sandwiches in the freezer…I need to make a big batch and freeze them today. 🙂

  6. Oh trusty Maximus- I hope you decided to switch up his Greek yogurt or at least give him FAGE (aka the best of the best!). And bonus, a babysitter all set to go 😉

    Breakfast sandwiches are what I’m currently craving- I mean, it is morning so it’s totally acceptable!

    1. Haha! I stumbled across some pumpkin dog bones at the store the other day…so he’s been a spoiled mutt lately! Now if I can only teach him how to babysit…that would be epic!!

  7. Well… I know who’s been a good boy 🙂 I saw a lot of this egg-in-muffin cups but haven’t tried it myself. I’ll give this a go tonight (breakfast for dinner type of guy) after my workout!

    1. Hey Damir! I’m a big fan of breakfast for dinner, but we don’t do it nearly enough around here. I’m also a big fan of English muffins. They’re perfect for breakfast sandwiches! These sammiches are super tasty, but if you’re looking for more breakfast ideas then check out these links. The flatbread pizza is amazing!
