If you’ve perused our recipe index, you might have seen the cousin of these freezer friendly breakfast sandwiches, Fake-Out Starbucks Breakfast Sandwiches. While I do still loves those, we’ve updated our methods a bit and used a few different ingredients for these breakfast sandwiches. I must say, my crew liked them more. Probably something to do with the crispy bacon and scrambled (not baked) egg.

I double batched these a few weeks ago and have periodically pulled them out of the freezer for mornings that I don’t feel like making anything or even for a quick lunch.Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Sandwiches make a great, healthy freezer meal to have on hand for busy mornings.

    The recipe sounds and looks so yummy and delicious ..
    Could we use egg whites for the scrambled eggs ?
    With all of your recipes that I’ve found can definately help my family eat better especially with a soon to be 8 year old princess on the Autsim scale who is not picky all of time ,just when we want her to eat..
    Bless you both..

      I think egg whites would work perfectly fine! I’m so glad to hear our recipes are helpful, especially with a little girl who needs a little extra love and attention. Let us know if you have questions!

    Do you let everything cool before assesmbling? I would imagine it could get soggy with the moisture that is trapped in the tin foil prior to it being frozen.

    • Rachel says

      Yes, it’s a good idea to let it cool first. That’s a good rule of thumb with all freezer meals, actually.
