How much spare time do you have to cook? If you’re as busy as I am, the answer is probably between “enough time to microwave something” and “I might have to starve.”

Thankfully, it only takes a few hours of one day and a couple muffin tins to make meals for almost the entire week. If I’m running behind one morning, I can easily take muffins to the office and heat them up in under a minute. Here are some recipes to get you started:

Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Cups

  • 12 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 12 breakfast sausage links
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk eggs, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until beaten.
  3. Divide eggs and onion evenly between each cup.
  4. Crumble one sausage link into each cup.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. After 20 minutes of baking, sprinkle each cup with cheese.
  7. Let them sit for 5 minutes and remove with a silicon spatula.

Barbecue with Corn Biscuit Cups

  • 1 lb of barbecued meat
  • 2 cans of corn biscuits
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Turn muffin pan cavity-side down and shape a biscuit over each cavity.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Take biscuits off of pan.
  5. Reduce heat to 400 degrees.
  6. Turn the pan over and place one biscuit in each cup.
  7. Divide barbecue meat evenly between biscuits and sprinkle with red onion and cheese.
  8. Bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.
