  • 1 can crescent roll dough we prefer Annie's Homegrown or Immaculate backing but other brands also work
  • pan spray
  • 1-2 Italian Sausage precooked and diced
  • .25 medium sweet onion diced
  • .25 medium bell pepper diced, we prefer orange, red or yellow
  • 5 large eggs
  • .25 cup milk
  • .25 teaspoon garlic powder
  • .25 teaspoon salt
  • ,25 teaspoon pepper
  • .5 cup cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. Unroll your crescent roll dough onto a clean counter or cutting board. Press the seams together into a sheet until it's one piece. Cut the dough into 12 equal pieces.

  3. Spray your muffin tin, making sure to coat the insides of the muffin cups well. In the bottom of each muffin tin lay one square of crescent dough.

  4. Dice up your veggies and sausage. In a small fry pan quickly cook peppers and onions until soft. Add vegetables and sausage evenly to the muffin tins.

  5. In a medium-sized bowl crack five eggs. Add milk, garlic, salt, and pepper. Using a whisk, scramble eggs.

  6. Add egg mixture evenly to muffin tins.

  7. Sprinkle cheese evenly on the tops of the sausage egg muffin tops.

  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until egg is cooked through all the way. 

Recipe Notes

  • I often will dice up a leftover sausage and throw it in a freezer bag to use for recipes like this. If using frozen diced sausage you can defrost it at the same time you cook the peppers and onions.
  • Ham or bacon can also be substituted, or meat can be left out of the recipe entirely.
  • These sausage egg muffin cups with veggies are also delicious for lunch, hot or cold.
