the domestic tales of four sisters

Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches

Hello again!  It’s the Type-A(er) here.  Being that the Husband and I are teachers, both Type-A personalities and possess the great drive to have our ducks in a row, we both leave the house at 6:30 in the morning.  Husband’s commute is approximately ten minutes and mine is about three.  Both of us don’t have to be at school until 8:00 am, and yet, we both arrive by 6:45 each morning.   With this, often we find ourselves inhaling breakfast on our way out the door, in the car, or once we get settled in our classrooms.  With pregnancy my favorites have been either English Muffins with peanut butter or a plain bagel with cream cheese, a cup of juice or milk, and 1/2 a cup of coffee.  While the English Muffin or bagel are sufficient for me, Husband requires a bit more “girth” to his first meal of the day.

Enter: Pinterest.

Knowing that he needed something substantial, and in a short amount of time, I began scouring the recipe section of Pinterest.  I pinned anything and everything that had the words “make the night before…” and set out to fulfill this mission.  A favorite was the breakfast sandwiches I’ve opted to share with you today.  They were all premade, placed in the freezer, and reheated and ready to eat within 45-60 seconds.  They also provided the “girth” that Hubby needs. Today, I created them with bacon because that is what I had on hand.  However, I have used sausage and Canadian bacon.  All were approved by those consuming them.

So, let’s begin…

First, crack your eggs into a muffin tin.  I break the yokes of mine, though you could also opt to scramble them and go from there.

Place the muffin tin in the preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.  While they are baking, Begin preparing the other items.  You will need: wax or parchment paper to wrap up the completed sandwiches, English Muffins, breakfast meat of your choice, and cheese slices of your choice.

Prepare each sandwich by separating the English Muffins, placing a slice of cheese and piece (or pieces) of breakfast meat on one side of the muffins.

Once the timer has gone off, remove the eggs from the oven to cool for a few moments.

Place an egg each top of the English Muffin and then flip it onto the other side to create your sandwich.

Once you have them stacked, wrap them up in either your wax or parchment paper.  Being that I was raised by a GM of McDonalds, and gave 5 years of my life to work in such a fine establishment, I pulled out my lovely cheeseburger wrapping skills.  When each sandwich is wrapped, place in a gallon sized ziplock freezer bag and place in the the freezer.  When ready to consume such deliciousness, remove from freezer, place in the microwave and reheat for between 45-60 seconds.  **Times will vary depending on individual microwave.**
