Italian Strata Muffins

There will be a future Italian Strata post, but this is a take off on that idea made into a muffin. This could be breakfast on-the-go or made into smaller muffin cups for an appetizer.

2 Italian sausage, casings removed
Italian Strata Muffins
1/4 cup onion, finally diced
1 1/2 cups mushrooms, sliced
4 cups fresh baby spinach
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup half and half
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
dash of hot sauce (optional)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
fresh ground pepper, to taste

Grease 10-12 muffin cups.
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large skillet over medium heat cook sausage until browned. Add onion and mushrooms and cook until softened.  Add spinach, this will cook down quickly. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix eggs, half and half, cheese and hot sauce. Add skillet mixture and salt and pepper.
Pour into muffin cups about 3/4 full.
Cook until a toothpick comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes.
Remove from muffin cups and serve, can also be served at room temperature.
