Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches
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!
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!
Why the 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.
