Ingredients

  • 68 oz chopped ham or fresh sausage (Polish, Italian, breakfast – whichever one you like)
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 10 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups cottage or ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheese, (mozzarella, provolone, monterey jack, etc.)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 12 tablespoons fresh parsley and chives, minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenehit. Grease 2 muffins tray.
  2. On medium high heat, partially cook the sausage.
  3. Add the onion and continue cooking until the onion is tender and the sausage is fully cooked. Drain on a paper towel.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together the dry ingredients – the flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, ricotta/cottage cheese, cheese and butter.
  6. Mix in the sausage, onions and herbs.
  7. Add the dry ingredients, mix to combine.
  8. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full. I use an ice cream scoop – it’s the perfect amount, each egg puff is the same size, so they bake evenly.
  9. Bake for about 30-35 minutes.
