Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Now this is genius! I saw this idea on Pinterest and have been doing it ever since.

At Andrew’s old job, he had a 10am break every day at which point he would essentially eat breakfast. So I started making these little breakfast sandwiches on the weekends and freezing them for him for the week. Grabbing one of these bad boys from the freezer the night before was so much easier than racking my brain as to what to make him everyday.

  • 6 English Muffins
  • 6 Eggs
  • 12 slices of Cheese
  • 6 servings of Ham, Bacon, Turkey Bacon, Back Bacon or Sausage

1. Lightly toast 6 English Muffins, poach 6 eggs, and cook your choice of meat (bacon and turkey bacon are great in the oven on a baking sheet)
It’s important to remember that these will be reheated in a microwave before being consumed so to avoid overcooking or drying out the eggs or meat, cook them to 90% completion.

2. After everything is cooked, you are ready to assemble! I don’t think the order matters all that much but when I make them I put cheese on one side of the muffin, the meat on the other, and the egg in the middle.

3. Once assembled, wrap in a piece of parchment paper and then again in saran wrap. The saran wrap will keep them fresh in the freezer but should be removed before microwaving.

4. Freeze until ready to consume. For bets results put in the fridge overnight to thaw. Microwave for approx. 45 seconds

To make them slightly healthier I always use whole wheat muffins, mozzarella cheese and ham or turkey bacon (although Andrew would prefer real bacon)

If you want to make them vegetarian, you can just omit the meat option.

If you want to jazz up you eggs a little you can make mini omelets in muffin tins/silicon baking cups instead of poaching them, containing whatever veggies you like (onion, peppers, mushrooms etc)
