Make Mornings Easy: Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

posted in: Family, Hospitality | 0

These are amazing to have in the freezer!! My husband has had a freezer breakfast sandwich every morning before work for the past 4 months. He hasn’t gotten tired of them yet.

(I’m frugal and put the completed sandwiches back in the muffin bag they came in!)

 

I’ve gone with frugal rather than all natural, or from scratch. You could easily make your own whole wheat English muffins from scratch (I’ve done that in the past when I didn’t have two little kids), or use free range eggs, etc.

These breakfast sandwiches are so very easy to prepare. So easy my toddler can do it!!

Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Makes ~ 30 breakfast sandwiches

  • 1 bag of 30 frozen pre-cooked sausage patties (I use Jimmy Dean’s Heat n’ Serve Sausage Patties, 26 count, $5.38)
  • 30 English muffins (I pay $1 per bag of 6, so $5 total)
  • 2 dozen eggs (~$1.79)
  • 8 oz. block of cheddar cheese, which I shred myself ($1.98)

So, the total cost to make 30 sandwiches (using my local grocery store prices) is just over $14, and $0.47/sandwich. Pretty good!! Comparing that to our local gas station Breakfast sandwiches (which my husband used to swing by and pick up a breakfast there occasionally), it’s a savings of $2 a sandwich. We can eat a week’s worth of homemade sandwiches for the price of one sandwich at the gas station!!

To cook the eggs:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. I crack all the eggs in a bowl and add just a bit of water (optional). Adding water allows me to stretch my eggs. So, sometimes I just use 21 eggs (so I can have 3 leftover for recipes, etc). Beat the eggs.
  3. Pour into a muffin pan (either a regular size, or jumbo size).
  4. Cook for about 25 min. Poke them with a knife and you will know they are done when the knife comes out clean.
  5. After they have cooled, I can cut each egg muffin into two rounds (or three sometimes with the jumbo muffin size).

Then, I just assemble them. First cheese, then eggs, then sausage:

To store: I wrap them in plastic wrap, then pile 6 in a gallon sized zip lock bag.

To heat:

My husband just heats it within the plastic wrap (or you could unwrap it and put it in a paper towel). Then heat it for 30 seconds, turn it over, and another 30 seconds.

Enjoy!
