Start by preheating your oven to 375°. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the pork sausage until browned. Drain the fat and reserve.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy whipping cream, paprika, garlic powder and season with salt and pepper to taste. Fold in the cooked sausage, shredded cheddar cheese and thinly sliced green onions. Pour the mixture into the prepared muffin tin and bake until cooked through and golden, about 15 minutes.
These egg bites are delicious fresh out of the oven, but you can also let them cool and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you're ready to eat. They're perfect for meal prep or an on-the-go breakfast option.
