Let’s face it. Breakfast meal prep makes mornings so much easier.

I love to prepare a whole stack of these on Sunday nights before a busy work week. I thank myself every single day after that.

BONUS: This is a very budget friendly breakfast. Last time I got breakfast at McDonald’s, I couldn’t believe how much it cost.


  • Nonstick Cooking Spray
  • Eggs
  • Whole Milk
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Bacon
  • Sausage Patties
  • Butter
  • English Muffins- I like to get them from the bakery section so they’re super fresh. (And a little larger.)
  • American Cheese

Wrapping Frozen Sandwiches in a Damp Paper Towel

  • The purpose of the damp paper towel is to prevent the sandwiches from becoming tough when microwaved and helps for more even heating.
  • If you don’t use the paper towel, I would recommend reheating on 50% power, covered. It may take longer to heat this way.

Breakfast Sandwiches For a Crowd

This is a great breakfast recipe for feeding a crowd. Feel free to make them fresh and serve them right away for a group.

Assemble the sandwiches as you normally would and pop them back in the oven until the cheese is melted! (Perhaps placing a layer of foil over the English muffins if you don’t want the tops to toast anymore.)

Enjoy your breakfast, friends!

Crisp and buttery English muffins topped with fluffy eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheese. Easy to freeze ahead of time and heat in just 3 minutes!


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 3 sausage patties
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 6 English muffins*
  • 6 slices American cheese, (Velveeta slices work well)


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lightly coat a 9 x 13 inch baking pan** with nonstick cooking spray. Add the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper and whisk until well combined. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until firm.
  • Meanwhile, place the bacon and sausage on a large baking pan and bake for 10-15 minutes, until they’re cooked through and the bacon is crispy. Dab the excess grease off once finished and set them aside.
  • Slice the English muffins and place on another large baking sheet. Brush butter evenly over the top of each slice, and bake for 5-8 minutes, or until crisp and slightly toasted on the top.
  • Cut the baked eggs into 6 squares of equal size.
  • Place an egg square on the bottom half of each English muffin, then either 2 bacon halves or one sausage patty, followed by a slice of cheese, and finally the English muffin top.
  • Take 6 paper towels and dampen each one with water, wringing out the excess water. Wrap each breakfast sandwich in the damp paper towel, and then in wax paper. Place them in labeled freezer bags, (or label each individual sandwich).
  • Freeze for up to a month.
  • To Heat: Remove each sandwich from the wax paper but leave it loosely in the paper towel. Microwave for 1.5 minutes, flip, and then another 1.5 minutes. Let it stand for one. Remove the paper towel, eat, and enjoy!



*My grocery store has homemade English muffins in the baking section, which I much prefer over the packaged variety, although either one works!
**I’ve used different sized pans for this, (namely my 8 x 8 inch pan), which also works just fine! Sliced ham or Canadian bacon also makes another tasty sandwich filling option!

  1. How long can i keep them i. The fridge?

  2. What is your suggestion for warming these up in the oven? I’ll use this camping all the time and we only have an oven. Do I wrap them without the paper towel?
    Thank you!

    • Hey Shannon! I would A.) Defrost them in the fridge overnight and reheat (uncovered) in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. OR, B.) Heat them in the oven in a frozen state at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!! -Stephanie

  3. Do you think ciabatta rolls would work instead of English muffins?

  4. Only 3 sausage patties for 6 sandwiches? Are you cutting the sausage patties in half? Easiest breakfast muffin sandwich recipe I’ve ever read. Thank you! 

  5. Can I use ham instead of sausage?

  6. How do I get the eggs square?

  7. I have some sausage patties that are already fully cooked when I bought them. Will these work as well just skip the step of cooking them and place them straight on the sandwich?

  8. can the egg portion only be frozen by itself?  Thank you

  9. Hello! I’m super excited about making these. You listed 10 eggs, but it looks like you only used 8 in your video. Should I use 8 eggs if using an 8×8 pan, and 10 eggs if using a 9×13 pan? Thanks!

    • Hey AC! Good eye! I think I was restricted to a smaller pan when I made that video so that’s why the portions are off- but you’re exactly right! 8 eggs for 8×8 pan and 10 for 9×13!! Enjoy, have a great weekend!!! -Stephanie

  10. Perfect result ! Thanks!
