Back To School Breakfast: Sausage, Egg & Hashbrown Frittata Cups

 

Several months ago I came across a recipe while on a diet. I loved the idea of individual egg frittatas but wasn’t crazy about the ingredients called for in the recipe so of course I had to tweak it just a bit. Now with school starting for most kids around the country, I wanted to share a super easy make ahead breakfast I believe your family will enjoy as much as mine has.

All three of my kids absolutely love breakfast food and would and could eat it all day every day. Also, with all three of them being involved in sports, this particular recipe has been a hit during weekend tournaments when they need a quick fix of protein. I believe this recipe is the perfect base and you could add your favorite additional items like spinach, feta, tomatoes, herbs….etc.

I also love that I’m able to use two of my favorite Ankarsrum attachments for this recipe. Hash browns couldn’t be easier when you use the Vegetable Cutter Attachment and grinding my own meat for sausage allows me to completely control the foods that I feed my family. No more chemicals or crazy amounts of sodium for my crew.

October(fest): Homemade Sausage

The first Oktoberfest was held in October of 1810 as a celebration of the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria (later King Ludwig I) to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen.  Horse races presided over by the royal family marked an end to the celebrations, and it was later decided to annually hold the races, and thus Oktoberfest was born.  Although the horse races are no longer a part of the festivities, Oktoberfest in Munich has grown into the largest festival in the world.  Over in America, we seem to know it as a celebration where you eat hearty German food and wash it down with a lot of beer.  Despite the fact that Oktoberfest this year was the 19th of September through the 4th of October, who says you can’t still celebrate the rest of the month with some homemade sausage?
