Take an hour out of your day to prep this for easy-peasy weekday morning (grab-and-go) breakfasts! Trust me, you and your whole family will love them.

  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup ground sausage (cooked thoroughly before adding). I cooked my sausage in a cast-iron skillet making sure to break the sausage into small pieces.

  4. Pour into muffin pan and cook for 20-25 minutes.
