Freezer Egg and Sausage Muffins

I have been buying boxes of frozen sausage and egg mcmuffins for a while. My son loves them for breakfast, he would rather these than anything else really. I would buy a box maybe twice a month. I often wondered why I didn't just make them and freeze them myself, so I finally did!

12 English muffins
12 sausage rounds (you could also use bacon, ham or whatever meat you like, you could also have no meat)
12 eggs
12 slices of cheese ( I ran out and cut up marbled cheese, 3 slices per muffin)

Preheat oven to 425F.  Place the sausage rounds on a rack, I used a flat  vegetable grill pan. Put a baking sheet under the rack. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, bake another 10 minutes. Mine were cooked from frozen, if yours are fresh you can cut the time down. You could also pan fry then. 

Toast 12 English muffins while the sausage is cooking.

Place the cheese on top of the English muffin. Followed by the sausage when it's cooked.

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Crack 12 eggs into the muffin tins. Scramble them or leave them as is. My son wanted half of them scrambled and half not.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Place the eggs over top. 
Let them cool. Wrap in foil and freeze. 
Warm them up in the microwave for 1-2 minutes from frozen.

According to my oldest, the sliced processed cheese is better than marbled and the eggs were better scrambled

What I Ate Wednesday #16

Click the link above to check out what other people have been eating over the past week.
Thanks to Peas and Crayons for hosting again!
It's been  a few weeks since I've posted anything on here, so I thought it was time that I started again. 
I was posting some of my workouts, however, now I am doing the James Wilson 12 week program and haven't been doing any of my own. I am on week 3 of the program and I am loving it! I am super sweaty by the end of it and I feel like I have worked hard the next day!
I have also been  in a bit of a food rut. I've been cooking things that I have already posted, I just haven't wanted to make anything new. I have also been trying to eat cleaner since staring this new program. I'm doing pretty good with it, I'd say I'm eating about 80% clean. 
So here's what I ate yesterday!
 Non fat plain Greek yogurt with blueberries, strawberries and unsweetened granola
1 piece of whole wheat toast with natural peanut butter

Protein shake

This doesn't look very good but it was actually pretty tasty
1/2 zucchini, 1/2 cup eggplant, broccoli slaw and coleslaw mix all stir fried together with 2 poached eggs on top

Celery, carrot and hummus

This was supposed to be supper. I do not like curry but I thought I would try it again to see if I liked it this time. It's still a no. I ate the kebabs, they were great!
So I was starving. I let the kids have whatever they wanted for supper, my daughter picked a can a alphagetties, I finished off the other can. And then because alphagetties are garbage, I was still hungry, so I had a piece of my sons KFC, more bad stuff.
