Breakfast Sandwich To Go

easy weekday breakfasts

I’ve shown you my breakfast burritos, my parfaits and even my overnight oatmeal but I’m a sucker for a good breakfast in a hurry so I thought I’d share another one: breakfast sandwich to go! First of all, you don’t even need me to sell you on the idea of a breakfast sandwich, right? It’s delicious and tasty and everyone loves them. What I dig about this idea is that you can totally control what goes on yours to fit your dietary needs. Also, prep these on Sunday and you’ll have a yummy breakfast for every morning of the week. 

how to make breakfast sandwiches at home

Breakfast sandwich to go isn’t really a recipe, it’s more of an idea. You can use any ingredient that tickles your fancy (I like sausage, egg, cheese and spinach) and stack them together. Then just freeze your pre-made sandwiches so they’re ready whenever you need a quick morning meal!

Start by splitting and toasting a few english muffins. Then cook up some eggs, any way you like, and then go crazy with the toppings.

I recommend making several different kinds so that each day of the week, you have some variety with the flavors. I’m using bacon, spinach and chicken sausage and switching it up among the sandwiches.

You can eat one now and then wrap the rest later and store them in the freezer.

Once you’re ready to eat one, just take it out from the freezer, unwrap and rewarm either in the microwave or toaster oven! It’ll take about 8 to 10 minutes in a toaster oven and about 4 to 5 minutes in the microwave!

A great Chic Tip: write the different days of the week on washi tape and attach to your breakfast sandwich to go sandwich. It’s just cuter guys!

    What a great idea! I’m always skeptical when I read about cooking bacon ahead of time and then freezing it. I mean, I love bacon, so to cook it and freeze it just seems unnatural 🙂 Still, this looks like it could shave some time off of the morning routine. Thanks for the tip!

      That’s what I wondered too! Made these up over the weekend. Heated one up on Monday in the microwave and started at 2-1/2 minutes. WAY too long. The english muffin was much too tough. Today (Wednesday) heated another up and 90 seconds was just a little too long too. Next one I try will be just 75 seconds.

        I’ve gotten the jimmy dean breakfast sandwhiches before, and I think you microwave those for 1 minute and 30 seconds on defrost on (30% power) and then turn it over and microwave to another 45-60 seconds! Might be worth a try.

    Hi,
    As long as everything is cooked ahead of time, (Bacon, ham, sausage etc.) it should keep without any problem in the refrigerator for a couple of days. I don’t think you need to freeze them. The cheese will melt fast, so the warm up time shouldn’t take long. I just think its quicker. The ones put in the freezer can be put down below in the refrigerator section the night before, allowing for less time for warm up.

    I make these all the time. When I get ambitious I m ake my own English muffins. Not hard to make at all. I have a suggestion though on the muffins buy cans of the 8 oz pineappke. They are the perfect size and depth to put your batter/flour mixture into. And they taste way better.i also use sandwich meats on them too. Instead of bacon. Just a thought….

    Hi – I love this idea – sorry to labour the point of the microwaving but do you put them in from frozen or do you have them out the freezer for a while to defrost? Many thanks!

      I put mine right into the microwave from the freezer. Depending on your micro you might do a little less time or a little more, or separating it in the middle to make sure the center is cooked but you don’t need to defrost. =)

    Will the spinach get freezer burn? And then when heated become soggy? Just wondering..

      Mine don’t usually last long because we eat them within a few weeks so I’ve never noticed freezer burn. And yes, the spinach wilts a bit when you microwave but that’s what happens when spinach is warmed up, no matter how its cooked.

    Hi All,
    The best way I have found to heat breakfast sandwiches without over cooking is to use the defrost mode.
    when I have the jimmy dean croissant breakfast sandwich with sausage, for example, I discovered that if I use defrost and about 3.25 minutes..(quick set #4) (adjust to your microwave) It comes out perfect. and since it is on defrost, it doesn’t get hard. I also leave it in the plastic, but open it up.
    I learned to enjoy them so much more..

      It works well to put frozen directly into microwave. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds on 30% power (defrost power) and then turn over and microwave on full power for about 50 seconds. Seems to come out perfect every time.
