Everybody loves a good Egg McMuffin from McDonald’s for breakfast, but the price doesn’t fit everyone’s budget. You can try some of the frozen boxed breakfast sandwiches at the supermarket, but they can be loaded in fat and preservatives. That’s why I decided to make my very own frozen egg muffin sandwiches. I know exactly what goes into them, and my mind can rest easier knowing I’ve made a healthy choice. I can also change up the taste by choosing different cheese or meats, so these breakfast sandwiches never get boring! So far these frozen egg breakfast sandwiches have been a big hit with my husband, but not a big hit to my wallet!
For these amazing breakfast sandwiches, you will need the following ingredients:
- English Muffins
- Sliced Cheese
- Meat choice-I use Canadian Bacon and Turkey Bacon
- Tin Foil (I use the tin foil wrappers for convenience. You can find them at your local dollar store.)
- Freezer Bags
First, let’s cook the eggs. I use muffin pans to cook my eggs in the oven. After spraying them with non-stick spray, I crack one egg into each muffin cup, then use a knife to break open the yolk. I add salt and pepper and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
While the eggs are cooking, I start assembling the rest of the sandwiches. I lay out the foil pieces, place an English muffin onto each of them, and add a slice of cheese. See my awesome technique at folding the edges of the cheese slice in so they fit perfectly onto the muffin? Genius, huh? I am using Gouda cheese here, but I’ve used Pepperjack and Sharp Cheddar cheeses as well. That’s the joy of making your own…you get to choose the ingredients!
You can see there isn’t any space on my kitchen counter or table that isn’t used when I’m making these! Next I add a slice of Canadian bacon and turkey bacon to each sandwich. Again, you can choose sausage, regular bacon, or any combination you desire. These are yours to customize to your liking!
Once the eggs are done, I use a spoon to pop them out of the muffin cups and place one onto sandwich.
See how the egg sits perfectly into place on the muffin?
I then top off the muffin, wrap it in the tin foil, and put the sandwiches in freezer bags before storing them in my freezer.
I have mastered the art of breakfast sandwich making so my process is streamlined and I can get it done quickly. I make my breakfast sandwiches in batches of 24, and it takes me slightly over an hour.
To heat these take it out of the foil, wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 90 seconds.
This is a great tasty, economical alternative to the beloved Egg McMuffin sandwich we all love so well. Not to mention it’s convenient to have these right in your own home each morning. What a perfect grab-and-go breakfast idea!
