EGG SANDWICH INGREDIENTS

It doesn’t take many ingredients to put these yummy egg sandwiches together. The best part about them is how easy it is to shelf cook with what you’ve got!

  • Bread – Feel free to use what you have! English muffins, croissants, rolls, bread, any carb will do.
  • Cheese – Any type of cheese goes great on these! I like to use sliced cheese, but shredded works as well. Mix and match flavors for a variety of egg sandwiches.
  • Meat – You can use Canadian bacon, sausage patties, bacon, or even lunch meat – super versatile and a great way to use up meat leftover from a yummy breakfast!
  • Egg – Feel free to use whole eggs or egg whites.
  • Seasoning – Get creative and try different seasonings out to see which you like the best!

HOW TO MAKE AN EGG SANDWICH

Assemble these egg sandwiches in no time! Start with your bread base. We’re big fans of the multigrain english muffins. We get at least two 6-packs at a time and make 12 egg sandwiches at a time. Keep in mind this recipe is for a big batch!

Add the cheese.

Mix your eggs and seasonings really well and place them in a 9×13 pan or a small cookie sheet to bake! Once the eggs are done, let them cool and cut them into 12 equal pieces.

Healthy tip: For low fat breakfast sandwiches, reduce the number of eggs and use egg whites to make up the difference. We often use 6 eggs and 12 egg whites.

Pro tip: Do not overcook your eggs! You’ll want them to be just barely set, keep in mind if you overcook them they will be dry and gummy when you warm them up in the oven. After eggs are cool, use a mason jar lid to cut perfect circles to fit on your sandwich (leftover scraps can be used to make breakfast burritos)!

Add your choice of meat and top it off with the other half of your english muffin, croissant, or another slice of bread! Ta da!

EGG SANDWICH RECIPE

Freezer Egg Sandwich

Make these easy egg sandwiches and have a quick and easy breakfast for busy mornings!

Ingredients

  • 12 English Muffins
  • 12 Eggs
  • 12 slices Cheese
  • 12 slices Canadian Bacon
  • Seasoning to taste: Paprika, salt and pepper are our go-tos

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat eggs and mix with seasonings. Spray a 9×13 pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray. Pour eggs into the pan and bake for 20 minutes. Slice into 12 equal portions.
  • Lay out the bottom half of your bread, place cheese, a portion of egg and meat on top and then top with the other half of your bread.
  • For freezing, wrap sandwiches in foil and place in a ziploc freezer bag and store in the freezer. You can also store in the fridge for short-term.
  • Transfer frozen breakfast sandwiches to the fridge the night before eating to thaw. When ready to eat, pop thawed breakfast sandwiches in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes. If still frozen, reheat in the oven for an extra 15 minutes (or defrost in the microwave). Enjoy warm.

HOW TO FREEZE AND REHEAT BREAKFAST SANDWICHES

When freezing, make sure your sandwich is wrapped up tight in tin foil and place in a ziploc freezer bag. In order to avoid freezer burn, get as much air out of your ziploc bags as possible.

For easy baking, pull your egg sandwiches out of the freezer the night before and place them in the fridge to thaw. This will reduce cook time!

Don’t worry though, if you forget to take them out the night before you can unwrap the tinfoil on your sandwich and replace with a damp paper towel thaw in the microwave before baking.
