If you know me well you know that there’s one thing I’m really, really bad at…
Being on time.
For example, on Monday I scheduled a trip to a massage therapist to try and calm my body and mind down after an emotionally trying month, and in preparation for an even worse week (hello, senior recital hearing…). Well, needless to say I ran late to that appointment and ended up running in even MORE stressed out and flustered than I had been if I had just stayed home!
Such is my life.
As Scott recently said, I’d be late to my own funeral. To which I responded “I hope I run late to my own funeral! I want a long life!” I know, so funny amiright?
So if you’re anything like me, chances are you rarely wake up early enough to make yourself a nutritional breakfast. This is where this recipe has saved. my. butt. It’s like three of my favorite breakfast foods rolled into one: eggs+muffins+sausage! Yes, please, and thank you.
This recipe only takes an 30 minutes to make, and then 30 seconds to zap in the microwave as you run out the door. The best part? It tastes just as good two days after as it does when it’s still fresh from the oven. BOO YAH!

Richard Wagner’s “Flight of the Valkyries” from Die Walküre (of Ring Cycle fame) is a pretty accurate description of how it feels to grab one of these muffins when you’re running late: a little frantic, but overall victorious!
This music is the prelude to the third act of Die Walküre. As the curtain opens, a mountain peak is revealed with four of the eight Valkyries (female figures of Norse Mythology who dictate who live and who die in the battlefield) preparing to transport fallen soldiers to Vanhalla (which is essentially heaven for those who have died in combat).
