How to Make Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Sandwiches

What Kind of Bacon Should I Use?

Bacon is kinda a big deal…especially in these sandwiches. And, you and I both know that all bacon is NOT created equal.

We’ve tried a lot over the years and can say whole heartedly that Burgers’ Smokehouse Bacon is the best we’ve ever had. Whether you choose their Uncured Bacon (my personal fave), Applewood Smoked Bacon, Hickory Smoked, or any of their flavors…you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

This family-owned mid-Missouri business uses their age-old family recipe to cure bacon with a mixture of salt, brown sugar and pepper, then slow-smoke it over natural wood chips…never adding any water. Because who wants to cook water with their bacon?

Learn more about their process here…

The Uncured Country Bacon–my favorite–is unique in that they use their traditional dry cured recipe without the added Sodium Nitrite. So, this bacon includes no MSG, gluten, preservatives, or added nitrate or nitrite.

How to Freeze and Reheat Breakfast Sandwiches

If you’re going to make one batch of these, you might as well make more and fill your freezer. They are so handy to pull out for a quick breakfast or lunch. Here’s how to freeze and reheat your breakfast sandwiches for the best results.

Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Sandwiches make a great, healthy freezer meal to have on hand for busy mornings. Easy to make and family friendly!

Freeze For Later

Build your sandwiches and wrap each one in foil, but do not warm them up. Place the individually-wrapped sandwiches in a gallon-sized freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

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 foil-wrapped sandwiches in 350° F oven for about 30 minutes or until warmed through.

Description

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


Ingredients

  • 9 whole wheat English muffins
  • 45 tablespoons butter, softened (optional)
  • cooking spray
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (your choice of milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 9 slices Cheddar cheese (sub: Havarti, Colby-Jack, or Swiss cheese slices)
  • 1 pound fully cooked Burgers’ Smokehouse Bacon (try this no-fail method to bake bacon)

Instructions

Make It Now:

  1. Adjust the top oven rack to 6 inches below the broiler. Turn the broiler on high.
  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 under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, just until toasted. Keep a close eye on them.
  3. Turn off the broiler and preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a 9×9 inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into the casserole dish.
  5. Place the casserole dish on the middle oven rack. Bake the eggs for 20 minutes, or until set in the middle. Let cool slightly and slice into 9 equal squares.
  6. To assemble the sandwiches, top each muffin bottom with one egg square, one cheese slice, and 1-2 slices of Burgers’ Smokehouse Bacon that have been broken in half. Place the muffin top on and wrap the sandwich tightly in foil. (Freezing instructions begin here.)
  7. If eating immediately, warm the foil-wrapped sandwiches in the oven for about 5 minutes, or microwave uncovered (no foil!) for 30 seconds, until cheese is melted.

Freeze For Later: Follow directions through Step 6. Place the individually-wrapped sandwiches in a gallon-sized freezer bag and freeze.

    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.
