Bacon Egg and Sausage Breakfast Cups for Kids in the Kitchen #SundaySupper

Every week I am very excited for #SundaySupper because it is a time for family and friends. {plus it’s a time for me to share these yummy little Bacon Egg and Sausage Breakfast Cups with you} It’s also a time to get together and celebrate our relationships with our loved ones. Which this week, is all about our children.

Bacon Egg and Sausage Breakfast Cups

For each person, how they spend time together, or who they spend time with, is different. For me, I am always with my children. We cook dinner together almost every night of the week, but Sundays tend to be a bit more elaborate.

Except today. Today I am sadly cooking #SundaySupper with only three of my five – without my mini-chef and her sister. Why? Because they are both “mock Freshman” at Truman State University, participating in *JBA {Joseph Baldwin Academy}. You can read more about that at the bottom of the page.

It isn’t such a huge deal that I only have three helping me – they are great helpers and they enjoy it. But there is such a loss in the house when even one is gone, and this time there are two missing. We dropped them off yesterday and I’ve felt like crying ever since. I’ll be fine, but it really does remind me how much I have in life and how rich and rewarding my kids are to me. {and how freakin’ lonely I’ll be when they’re all grown up and gone and it’s so close it scares me.}

Knowing that this week was Kids in the Kitchen for #SundaySupper I was not missing out. My kids are always in the kitchen with me so we planned ahead and a few nights ago, we decided to have our final #SundaySupper together for the next three weeks, before they left town.

We chose this recipe from one of my best friends blogs. Sheri from Me and My Tadpole made these a few weeks ago and as soon as my daughter saw them she wanted to make them. They remind me of these fun Bacon and Egg Muffin Cups I made a few months ago. Brielle usually helps me choose what we make and helps me create recipes – she’s my mini-chef – she absolutely loves to be in the kitchen. She is definitely my mini-me.  Ever since we made Sheri’s Bacon Egg and Sausage Breakfast Cups the first time, they are her favorite thing to make and all the kids just love them! Sheri thank you for sharing such a great recipe that made my kids all enjoy stepping up and helping in the kitchen. Everyone had their touch on the meal.

Brielle made the Bacon Egg and Sausage Breakfast Cups. Ryan made the pancakes {yes, my 17 year old son has been taught to cook from scratch, and actually can!} . Jessica made the bacon for the breakfast cups. Vanessa and Melissa helped with the fruit salad we made, which you can find here. We had a lot of fun, and I am thankful for this time we shared before Brielle & Melissa left.

*JBA is a program for 7th-9th graders where for 3 weeks they live as freshmen in college, take a college level course and have a bit more freedom and learn to live away from home. It takes a lot to get into the program and it goes beyond the nomination they receive from a teacher or administrator at the school they attend. They have to write essays, taking the ACT test with a bunch of college age kids and have high grades and high standardized test scores. For one of my girls it’s her third and final time. For the other, it is her first.

    Awesome recipe made even better by awesome kids! Love that you shared this great post during #SundaySupper and that you are so true to our Mission of Bringing Back Sunday Supper Around the Family table in every home….. and you will survive these 3 weeks, I promise!

  2. says

    SO happy for your kids to be able to attend such an amazing program. I have no idea how that will feel but I am sure it will be sad for me when I don’t have my helpers anymore. This recipe looks amazing!

    How great that you all got to cook together before they took off. I know what you mean about them growing up. Our oldest son starts high school this year. Only 4 years left before he’s off to go to college. It’s hard to imagine so far.

    I’ve seen a lot of these breakfast muffin-type things floating around lately. I definitely need to give them a try.

    Oh, I am so like you. When even one of my kids is gone, even for a night, I feel a bit sad. I’m always happiest when they are all home. Considering that my oldest are 22 and 20, I’m getting more used to it, but still glad that they live at home. The JBA sounds very cool…what an honor to be chosen for it.

    I’ve never made any type of breakfast cups, but I was just thinking these would be great for our upcoming road trip. I always make some type of portable breakfast before we leave on a trip (usually breakfast burritos).

    Aw, my youngest is going to college in the fall so I can relate.It sounds like an excellent program…I bet they’re loving the experience. And lucky you having such a competent kitchen assistant…your breakfast cups look yummy!

    What a great idea Nicole!

    I totally believe your 17 year old made the pancakes. My boys cooked from scratch too and still do as a matter of fact. It’s very important the kids, boys and girls alike, know how to cook. You can’t imagine how many of my boys friends, including the girls, had no clue. I see that as an invitation to rely on others or even worse, processed foods for survival.

    Have a great week!

    Yum! These look so good! My 2 year old makes such a mess when we make eggs throwing them all around. This looks like an eye catching and tasty way to try and keep it a bit more contained!

  8. says

    OMG I almost chose to make these for my Featured Friday!! Now I really have to make them!! Looking good momma! Does your daughter love to be in the kitchen with you? She looks like a natural :)

  9. says

    Breakfast on the go! Love it! That opportunity for them to live like freshmen at their age is very beneficial. I know it’s extremely hard for you to be away from them, but trust me – they will be eons ahead when they do go to college. Plus all of them will thank you for getting them to cook from scratch!

    Oh wow, JBA at Truman State, how cool! My oldest daughter just graduated from TSU and 2 of her sorority sisters are working JBA this summer. What an awesome school & program!

    Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to give this a try!

    What a sweet memory for you and your kids! And your breakfast cups look really good. Thanks for sharing at Must Try Monday
