Microwave Breakfast Sandwiches

These sandwiches were made along with the quick oatmeal in mason jars for my boyfriend who needed a “quick and easy” breakfast to take to work with him. Who doesn’t love a good breakfast sandwich? I had seen several other websites that featured sandwiches that were assembled, wrapped up, and frozen. What I really like about these is you can make different kinds of sandwiches, use healthy ingredients, and easily make a whole bunch to have in the freezer so you aren’t always putting together meals.

2 packages whole wheat English muffins (about 12 muffins)

sliced cheese (I used cheddar and pepper jack)

packaged meats like sliced ham or turkey sausage patties

12 large eggs

salt and pepper to taste

any additional ingredients (remember you will be freezing and reheating these ingredients)

All I did to prepare these sandwiches was to first cook the eggs. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. I used ramekins but you can also use a regular-sized muffin pan. If you use ramekins, place them on a cookie sheet when cooking. Grease the ramekins or muffin cups with some non-stick spray. Crack one egg into each ramekin or muffin cup, top with a little bit of salt and pepper. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked through (including the yolk).

While your eggs are cooling, split the English muffins apart and place each piece out onto a foil-lined cookie sheet. Place in your preheated oven until lightly toasted. Remove and cool.

Now to assemble. Make sure all of your ingredients are completely cooled. Place down a slice of cheese and one egg onto one half of an English muffin. Top with your chosen meat product and the other half of the English muffin. Wrap each sandwich in wax paper and place in a freezer-safe plastic bag. I labeled the bags with the cooking time – 1 to 2 minutes.

These were his favorite and he even had to deal with others living in his house stealing a couple for breakfast. Who hasn’t had to deal with that in a busy household? I usually have to hide my snacks in my room!
