Bacon Egg and Sausage Breakfast Cups for Kids in the Kitchen

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.

Be sure and get your kids in the kitchen and let them help you cook!

*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.
