HOW TO MAKE EASY FREEZER BREAKFAST SANDWICHES
Really folks, these English muffin breakfast sandwiches could not be easier to make. Just crack your eggs into a muffin tin or ramekins and slide in the oven. While the eggs are cooking, split the muffins and line them with ham and cheese. When cooked, scoop the eggs onto the muffins, replace the top and slide each one into a wax paper sandwich bag. Let the sandwiches cool before freezing.
Make as many at a time as you want – easy, peasy!
If you want to get fancy, you can toast the muffins in the oven too and spread each with butter. I like to leave them plain so whoever heats one up can doctor it up how they like it.
HOW TO FREEZE HOMEMADE BREAKFAST SANDWICHES
When prepping breakfast sandwiches for your freezer, it’s important to wrap each one up individually. Not only does that make it simple to grab one on the way out the door, but it also ensures that they don’t stick together while freezing and may help to prevent freezer burn.
Allow the cooked sandwiches to cool, then slip the individually wrapped sandwiches ( in wax paper bags) into a large plastic freezer bag. Get out as much of the air as you can, label and seal. Freeze for up to 3 months.
HOW TO RE-HEAT FROZEN BREAKFAST SANDWICHES
To re-heat frozen breakfast sandwiches: place sandwich on a microwave safe plate. Heat on full power for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes until cheese is melted and egg is warmed thru. OR Heat up the toaster oven to 350°F. Open the top of sandwich and place both sandwich pieces in the toaster oven. Heat for about 20 – 25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the egg and ham are warmed thru and English muffin is lightly toasted. You may need to remove the top half of the sandwich early to prevent burning.
**At our house, we usually just open the end of the wax paper bag and set the sandwich right in the microwave for 1 minute on full power. The open end of the bag lets the steam escape so the bread doesn’t get wet.
BEST BREAKFAST SANDWICH FILLINGS
There are an unlimited amount of variations for these tasty breakfast sandwiches. You can use biscuits instead of English muffins, turkey slices or sausage instead of ham, and a virtually infinite variety of cheeses. Spread each with Dijon mayonnaise, ranch dressing or just butter to add even more flavor!
