Low Fat Turkey Sausage Breakfast Cups


Ingredients:

1/3 pound low fat turkey sausage or low fat soy crumbles, cooked and drained
2 slices of turkey bacon, cut into small pieces
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 1/2 cups of low fat or fat free egg substitute
1/4 cup fat free milk
1/2 garlic salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup low fat cheddar cheese, grated



Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large saute pan, brown Italian sausage for about five minutes, or until the sausage is no longer pink. Add red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute more. Remove from heat and drain on a paper towel lined plate. Place two paper towels on top of sausage and press down to remove additional grease. Set aside.


Cook two slices of turkey bacon, drain, chop and set aside.

Whisk together eggs and milk. Add garlic salt, pepper, cooked sausage, bacon and cheese.

Spray one jumbo sized muffin cup with non-stick spray.

Ladle the egg mixture into prepared cups and fill 3/4 full.

Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until golden brown and centers are set. Allow to sit for five minutes before serving. Enjoy!
