Looking to make your mornings easier?  I have a solution for you!  These easy and satisfying make ahead freezer breakfast sandwiches are the perfect solution for busy mornings or for when you have a crowd.  They are a great option for when you are hosting overnight guests or a brunch (early football game watch or tailgate too).  We also love to have them on hand for breakfast / lunch on busy weekends full of sports or as an afternoon mini meal when we have activities and will have a late dinner.

Whisk together your eggs, milk and salt and lay your turkey bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Then bake for 25-30 mins.

While they are baking, cut your english muffins in half and form an assembly line with your cheese and english muffins.  After the eggs and bacon are done, let them cool for 5 minutes.  Then cut your egg into 9 pieces (3 rows across and 3 rows down).   Add an egg piece and one piece of turkey bacon (I rip in half) to each English muffin bottom.

Then place the tops on and wrap each one in parchment paper and put them into a freezer bag.

You can skip this step and heat them back in the oven if you are eating right away.  If you are eating at a later time stick the bags in the freezer for up to 2 months or in the refrigerator for up to a week.  You have 2 options to reheat.  You can place them in the toaster/oven for 10-15 mins (if they are frozen I recommend taking them out of the oven the night before).  Alternatively, you can microwave them for 2 minutes.

  • 1 tsp salt option 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp everything bagel seasoning
  • 9 english muffins whole wheat or regular or sandwich thins

Instructions

Make & Assemble Breakfast Sandwiches

  • Preheat Oven to 350 and lightly spray or oil a 9x13 baking pan.
  • Whisk together 12 eggs, milk and salt and pour into 9x13.
  • Place your turkey bacon on a half sheet pan (I line mine with parchment paper first).
  • Bake the eggs and the turkey bacon for 20-30 minutes (until the eggs are set and the bacon is lightly browned). My eggs were done at 25 mins and my turkey bacon was done at 30 (Check eggs at 20 minutes first every oven is slightly different).
  • While the eggs and turkey bacon are cooking cut open your English muffins and line them up with a slice of cheese on the top portion
  • When the eggs are done let them cool for 3-5 minutes and then slice them into 9 pieces (3 rows across and 3 rows down).
  • Add an egg piece to the bottom of each English muffin and then place a piece of bacon on top (I cut the bacon in half and place 2 halves on each sandwich
  • Next top each one with the cheese and English muffin top

Eat Immediataly

  • Pop back in the oven (at 350) for 5 minutes or until cheese is fully melted

Freeze or Refrigerate for later

  • Wrap each sandwich in parchment paper and place in 2 zip lock bags and put into the refrigerator (1 week) or freezer (2 months) until you are ready to use.

Reheating from Frozen

  • Place them with the parchment into the microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes (test out exact timing since every microwave is a little different)
  • Place in an oven or toaster oven at 350 (if doing this from frozen I would advise taking it out the night before and putting it in the refrigerator as it takes close to 10 minutes if its straight from frozen
