Gluten-Free Grab and Go: Turkey, Broccoli, and Egg Muffins

Ingredients

  1. For the sausage
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  4. 1 clove garlic, minced
  5. 1/2 pound ground turkey
  6. 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  7. 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  8. 1 teaspoon dried basil
  9. 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  10. 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  11. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  1. For the muffins
  2. 2 cups broccoli, finely chopped
  3. 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  4. 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes (soaked in oil), finely chopped
  5. 1 teaspoon dried basil
  6. 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  7. 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  9. 8 large eggs
  10. 1 tablespoon chives

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook onion and garlic for five minutes or until onion has browned and softened. Remove from skillet and cool for 10 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine turkey and the onion mixture. Add the rest of the sausage ingredients, and mix with your hands until thoroughly blended.
  4. Form patties of desired width and thickness (3-inch wide by 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch thick works well) by hand. Cook in the skillet over medium heat for eight minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the centre registers 75 degrees and the meat is no longer pink. Set aside to cool, then chop and crumble sausage into bite-size pieces.
  5. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, sausage, cheese, tomatoes, basil, oregano, onion powder, and salt.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Pour into the broccoli mixture and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture evenly among the muffin cups and top with chives.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
