Individual Sausage Casseroles by The Pioneer Woman

There’s no evading this simple truth of the universe: Sausage and egg casserole is one of the greatest breakfasts there is. It’s retro (80’s bridal showers, anyone?), it’s satisfying, it’s flavorful, and best of all, it’s family friendly.

These are individual versions of the original, and they’re great. I love making them for the Drummond kids. The Drummond kids love it too, haha. They’re delicious fresh, of course, but they’re a good thing to keep in the freezer, too! You can find different versions everywhere with everything from chorizo to ham to mushrooms, so rest assured you can add anything you want and they’ll still be delicious!

 
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, crumble and cook the sausage until it’s about ¾ brown.

 
 
Add the onion and reduce the heat to medium-low.

 
 
Stir and continue cooking the sausage, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is cooked and the onion is soft. Remove this from the heat and set it aside to cool.

 
 
Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the salt, pepper, and chili powder. Whisk it until it’s combined.

 
 
Add the cheddar and bell pepper and stir them in…

 
 
And when the sausage has cooled slightly, add it by the spoonful…

 
 
And stir it until it’s all mixed together.

 
 
Use a measuring cup to scoop the mixture into the muffin cups…

 
 
And bake them for 20-22 minutes, until they’re puffy and just barely set.

 
 
Within a minute or two, the casseroles will start to flatten just a little bit. Don’t be sad; This is normal! Run a knife along the edges of each muffin cup…

 
 
And serve them warm with a little fruit.

 
 
I’ve been snacking on these for the past few days! Delicious and so simple.

Helpful tip: The casseroles freeze beautifully! Just seal them tightly in plastic zipper bags. Thaw and reheat in the microwave when you’re ready to serve them.

Change it up!

* Substitute half the diced bell pepper with finely chopped mushrooms.
* Add several dashes of hot sauce to the egg mixture for a little more spice.
* Substitute pepper jack cheese for the cheddar.
* Add diced ham instead of cooked sausage; it’ll save ya time!

According to my calendar, on December 19th I ostensibly signed special ordered books at The Strand and then took my two year-old to a holiday party, but I know the truth, which is that I was actually reading this hilarious piece on Bon Appetit from Alex Delany in which he complains that winter cocktails are usually too unsubtly wintery, that he doesn’t need “seven sticks of cinnamon, half a holly tree or a metric ton of cloves, mulling spices or liquor that tastes like cookies” to entice him to drink booze in the winter, and texting my husband that we should make boulevardiers that night after the kids went to sleep.

Boulevardier, according to Google, means “a wealthy, fashionable socialite,” (aka “what is the opposite of Deb?”) but from that day on, it will be forever be the official drink of the winter of 2017-2018 (this is the official cookie, by the way) because we’ve found it downright habit-forming.
