- Cook sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat, breaking up lumps, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
- Preheat oven to 375º F. Grease 6 jumbo muffin cups.
- Stir together melted butter and the maple syrup in a small bowl. Flatten bread slices with a rolling pin and brush tops with butter mixture. Line muffin cups with flattened bread.
- Bake until bread crisps, 8 to10 minutes. Sprinkle with sausage, then crack an egg into each cup. Season with salt and pepper, then top each egg with 1T cheese. Continue to baking until whites are just set, 10 to14 minutes.
Tips: For those wanting to decrease the calories and sodium, substitute with reduced calorie cheddar cheese and decrease the salt to 1/8 tsp. If the muffin cups are less than jumbo size, whisk the eggs before adding to the toasted bread liner to save room.
