1 other carbohydrate, 3 low-fat milk
1/2 tablespoon canola oil
1 yellow onion (finely chopped)
1 package sliced white mushrooms
1 (6.4-ounce) package frozen, cooked, nitrate-free turkey sausage links, thawed and chopped
1 3/4 cup liquid egg substitute
1/4 cup skim milk
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup shredded, fat-free cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a medium nonstick pan, warm oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and mushrooms, stirring occasionally and sauteing until soft, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, warm the turkey sausage according to package directions. Chop into small pieces. When onion and mushroom mixture is cooked, remove from heat and stir in the sausage. Using a spoon, divide mixture evenly between each muffin cup.
In small bowl, add egg substitute, skim milk, and pepper. Whisk together with a fork. Pour egg mixture into the muffin pan, again evenly dividing mixture into each muffin cup. Top each cup with cheddar cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Use a knife to go around the edges of each egg muffin to remove it from pan. Serve.
Cooking Tip: Place the muffin tin on a baking sheet before adding into the oven to cook will make sure any spillage goes to the baking sheet versus dirtying the oven. It's a good trick to use in this recipe and others.
Keep it Healthy: When wanting to convert a recipe from eggs to liquid egg substitute, the general rule is to use 1/4 cup egg substitute per 1 egg.
Tip: Using a muffin tin instantly makes a recipe more portable. Think meatloaf muffins, which can be packed for lunches, or granola cups or oatmeal for more instant breakfasts.
