In a medium bowl, combine turkey and the onion mixture. Add the rest of the sausage ingredients, and mix with your hands until thoroughly blended.

Cook in the skillet over medium heat for 5-6 minutes, until the meat is cooked. Set aside to cool, then chop.

In a large bowl, combine broccoli, sausage, cheese, tomatoes, basil, oregano, onion powder, and salt.

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Pour into the broccoli mixture and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture evenly among the muffin cups and top with chives.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
