Breakfast Sandwiches for the Freezer

I have had multiple requests for this recipe.

Breakfast sandwiches that are so easy, so yummy,

and freeze well!

Customize them with whatever bread, meat, or cheese your family enjoys.  I usually make a double-batch.  We’ll keep one batch in the refrigerator for eating that week, and freeze the other.

Breakfast Sandwiches for the Freezer

    • 12 eggs
    • 1/4 cup dairy product.  This can be milk, plain yogurt, sour cream, or whatever dairy you need to use up in your fridge.  The dairy helps to stabilize the eggs in the freezer, so they thaw and reheat with a better texture.
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    • 12 servings of breakfast meats (bacon, sausage patties, Canadian bacon, ham, etc.  Our family especially enjoys the turkey sausage breakfast patties from WalMart)
    • 12 english muffins or sandwich thins
    • Butter or canola oil, if desired
    • 12 slices of your favorite cheese
  1.  Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  If you don’t have a Demarle muffin mold or baking sheet, get one!  But until then, you can generously grease a 9×13 pan.
  2. Whisk the eggs, dairy, salt and pepper.  (I use my stand mixer)
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the greased pan or muffin mold, and bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the center is just set.  Do not over-cook!
  4. Remove from the oven and allow the eggs to cool.
  5. While the eggs are cooling, toast your english muffins under broiler on low.  You may butter them if you wish – I spritz with canola oil because it’s fast and easy.
  6. Cut the eggs into 12 squares if you used a 9×13 pan.
  7. Build your sandwiches:  Bread, egg, meat, cheese, bread.
  8. Package and label your sandwiches.  I use sandwich bags.  If freezing, allow sandwiches to cool completely in the refrigerator, then package in a freezer-safe resealable bag or air-tight container.

To reheat:

If frozen, allow sandwiches to thaw completely in refrigerator overnight.  Remove packaging and place on microwave-safe plate.  Heat on high for 30 seconds.  Turn over, and heat an additional 15-30 seconds until hot.  Alternately, you can reheat the sandwiches in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, or use a toaster oven.

From my family to yours,

enjoy!
