Fast. Easy. Breakfast. Breakfast Sandwiches

October 14th, 2009 by katie

I love a nice, light yogurt parfait in the mornings.  But some mornings, a cup of yogurt just isn’t going to cut it.  I like to have heartier breakfast fare stashed in the freezer for those occasions.  These sandwiches are so easy and delicious you’ll want to keep a large stash on hand for grab and go convenience on busy mornings.  This is one of those convenience food swaps that takes a few minutes to prep but if you are going to make one you might as well make a dozen.

Breakfast Sandwiches

makes 12 sandwiches, prep 10 min, cook time 20 minutes
  • 12 english muffins or mini bagels
  • 1 pound bacon or 12 sausage patties
  • 12 eggs
  • 3 cups shredded cheese or 12 slices of cheese
  1. Toast english muffins or bagels, set aside.
  2. Cut bacon in half and cook or cook sausage patties.  Set aside.
  3. Grease a muffin tin and either crack an egg into each muffin space and lightly beat or beat eggs together in a bowl and pour into each space.
  4. Bake eggs at 400°F for 10 minutes or until almost done.
  5. When eggs are almost set cover each egg with 1/4 cup shredded cheese.
  6. Return to the oven until cheese is melted.
  7. Remove egg/cheese muffins and allow to cool.
  8. Assemble sandwiches and allow to cool completely.
  9. Wrap in plastic wrap, then store in a freezer bag in the freezer.
  10. To reheat, unwrap and microwave for 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, checking every 30 seconds.

These are also good in the refrigerator if you will eat them within a week.  Just warm up for 30 seconds in the microwave.

    This is genius! I really need to make an effort to do this. I have been getting up with my husband and making him an egg sandwich in the morning, but it would be sooooo much easier if I had the eggs on hand already. And he would REALLY appreciate the addition of sausage or bacon. Yummy!

    So so SMART! Why hasn’t anyone else (except McDonalds) thought of this?

    Each day I become an even bigger fan of your practical, simple solutions to universal culinary dilemmas.

    p.s. The chicken soup came out great. I’ll send you a photo after I get them off my camera.

    That is fabulous! I’ll be making these this weekend. I usually eat weight watchers microwave breakfast sandwiches but this HAS to be healthier or at the very least less sodium than the frozen things that cost $1.50 per sandwich!

    What a clever idea cooking the eggs in the muffin tins! I’m always looking for breakfast ideas for my husband to take on the run. I can’t wait to surprise him with these little gems!

    Great idea! I stumbled upon your site through foodgawker today and I spent my lunch hour browing previous entries. Great site! I saw your post for chicken stock…I make mine and freeze it in ice cube trays and pop them into the large bag. Works perfectly.

    I make these for a snack shack i run at a local auction company. Although I make a few changes. I cook everything on a grill, starting with sausage patties, and grill some onions. then i put some butter or marginerin on the grill, throw my egg rings on and put the eggs on the grill, popping the yolks. when the eggs have a nice little layer of crispy browness on them. I stick a burger bun on the grill for a few seconds just to toat it. then i put my egg on top of my sausage, my grilled onions on the egg, and cover it w/ swiss cheese or someother. the people really seem to enjoy it alot!

So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
