These simple breakfast sandwiches rival their fast food equivalent any day and make a healthy and delicious breakfast possible, even on the busiest mornings. The secret–why making them into a freezer meal, of course!

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.

Make-Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches

  • Author: Thriving Home
  • Yield: 6 sandwiches

Description

Make these simple egg sandwiches ahead of time, wrap, and freeze for fast and satisfying breakfasts on the go.


Ingredients

  • 6 whole wheat English muffins
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons avocado oil (sub: butter)
  • 6 slices cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices uncured bacon, fully cooked (try this no-fail method to cook bacon)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Set the English muffins on a sheet pan and open them up with the insides facing up. Spread a little softened butter on the insides (optional). Toast in the oven for 5-10 minutes, until golden brown.
  3. While muffins toast, whisk the eggs together with milk, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
  4. Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-low heat. Scramble the eggs until set but still moist. Do not overcook.
  5. To assemble the sandwiches, top each muffin bottom with approximately one egg, one cheese slice and 1 slice of bacon, broken into 2-3 pieces. Place the muffin top on top and wrap the sandwich tightly in foil. (Freezing instructions begin here.)
  6. If eating immediately, warm the foil-wrapped sandwiches in the oven for about 3-5 minutes, or microwave uncovered (no foil!) for 30 seconds, until cheese is melted.

Freeze For Later:

Follow directions through Step 5. Place the individually-wrapped sandwiches in a gallon-sized freezer bag and freeze.

Prepare From Frozen:

There are three options for thawing and warming these sandwiches.

Option 1 (preferred method): Thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours. Remove foil and wrap in a moist paper towel. Microwave in 30 second intervals, until warmed through (about 1-2 minutes).

Option 2: From frozen, remove foil and wrap frozen sandwich in a moist paper towel. Microwave for 1 minute and then in 30 second intervals, until warmed through.

Option 3: From frozen, place sandwiches (still wrapped in foil) in 350° F oven for about 30 minutes or until warmed through.

    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.

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