  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C degrees and line a sheet pan with foil. 

  2. Spread sausage out onto the sheet pan and transfer to the lower oven rack. Bake until deeply browned and cooked through, ~20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  3. Brush the inside of 4 ramekins (for 4 servings; adjust if customizing) with some cooking oil and place them on a sheet pan. (Note: Each ramekin should hold 2 eggs. If you prefer, you can also use a well-greased muffin tin and cook each egg in its own space in the tin.)

  4. Divide butter between ramekins and transfer sheet pan to heated oven. Bake until butter is melted, 3 to 4 minutes.

  5. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle garlic over melted butter. Crack eggs over garlic. Season the top of eggs with some salt and pepper.

  6. Return pan to oven and continue baking until egg whites are set and yolks are still slightly runny, 8 to 10 minutes.

  7. Serve eggs topped with cilantro, avocados, and hot sauce (if using). Enjoy with sausages and smoothies on the side.
