INSTRUCTIONS.

Preheat your oven to 180 C, lightly spray or brush a standard/regular sized muffin tray with oil.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and garlic, cook for 6 minutes while breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon until brown.

On top of the sausage pour in the egg mixture into each muffin cup until each cup has an equal amount.
