1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped sweet red or orange pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh baby spinach
6 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
1 package (12 ounces) multigrain sandwich thins, split
6 slices cheddar, Swiss or pepper jack cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and sweet pepper; cook and stir until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add spinach; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat; let cool 5 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, salt, pepper and onion mixture. Divide egg mixture between 6 greased 4-in. muffin top tins. Bake until eggs are set, 12 to 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, shape sausage into six 5-in. patties. In the same skillet, cook patties over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Drain if necessary on paper towels. Layer sandwich bottoms with sausage patties, eggs and cheese; replace tops.
