  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In the top of a double boiler, steam the asparagus for 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Remove and chop the asparagus.
  2. Lightly coat 2 mini muffin pans (each with 24 cups) with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, pepper and salt. Stir in the turkey sausage, asparagus, cheese and basil. Fill 32 of the prepared muffin cups almost to the top with the egg mixture.
  4. Bake until the egg mixture puffs and is just set in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the muffin pans and top with additional fresh basil, if desired. Serve immediately.
