I just took breakfast from here to way up there, as a visual that would mean from waist height to way up in the sky. These super cheesy eggs and sausage croissant muffins are really tasty, easy to make and can be snuck into lunch boxes.

Or make a batch and just grab one from the fridge, a quick 20 seconds in the microwave and you’re back to melted cheese land, a place we all dream of, right?

Yummy egg and sausage croissant muffins for breakfast

Cheese with sausage/bacon/ham is always a good thing, I’ve never been disappointed with that combo whether it’s in a burger, on a pizza or in a giant breakfast burrito.

So when Cabot sent me some of there new shredded cheese flavors, I knew I was heading for a melty breakfast of some sort! And with more than a dozen varieties to choose from, you won’t be stuck for ideas on what to make! I used the bacon cheddar but really any variety of Cabot shreds would work.

There’s even a mac and cheese version and a fiery jack flavor! Seriously, how good do those sound?

Cabot runs as a co-op so you can be sure that the product you receive is top quality and coming straight from the farmer and the community.

Cabot takes dairy seriously so whether it’s dips, yogurt or cheese they all start with the best milk from the best cows! And because the farmers are actually the owners, they’re committed to giving you the best product from beginning to end. It’s a total win-win situation.

Breakfast egg and sausage treats

With Mother’s Day coming, these would be perfect to serve up to mom as she wakes up on a sleepy Sunday morning.

I’m talking to the dad’s out there, get your kids involved because did I mention how easy these egg and sausage croissant muffins are to make?

Serve them warm with a cup of fresh coffee or for that special occasion, maybe a pomegranate mimosa.
