If you know anything about my husband, it’s that he is the breakfast sandwich king. Not only is he an incredible cook, but he also happens to have expert “brekkie sammie” radar when we are out and about. He is always sure to find the best sandwiches in town, no matter where we are.
While I am normally the master of cooking in our house, this is an honor and title I am usually happy to yield to my husband. But, as a sweet gesture to my hunnie who leaves the house before 6 am every morning for work, I wanted to make weekday friendly breakfast sandwiches that he could grab and go with him every morning.
This meal has serious staying power is tastes just a little better than other fast breakfast options. Especially as we enter the cooler temps and darker mornings.
This recipe is perfect for busy families, especially kids and teenagers, who are always hungry and always on the run. Plus, make-ahead and freeze meals take the guesswork out of weekday snacks and meals, and who doesn’t love a breakfast sandwich?? This one is going to win you major brownie points in your household, I promise.
Enjoy this one, my friends!
English Muffins. I ask for English muffins in my recipe below, but croissants would be absolutely excellent as well.
Meat. In my photos for this recipe post, I include both Canadian Bacon and Breakfast Sausage Patties, to give some options. However, feel free to use bacon, meatless alternatives, or omit them altogether.
Eggs. Another thought is, use the Joseph and Joseph egg cooking pods as directed, or you could create a scramble with lots of yummy veggies and onion and garlic, and pour it right into the molds just the same.
Cheese. Feel free to swap the American cheese for cheddar slices, if you so desire, but note that I used this specific white cheese to create a classic gooey, stick to the top of your mouth breakfast sandwich that we’ve all come to know and love.
Storage. Store them in the fridge if you think your family will go through them all in a week, or store half in the freezer for a rainy day. Just be sure that if you want these as “make-ahead” to make the full batch and store individually in aluminum foil or reusable sandwich bags.
Additions. Get creative and add layers of veggies, swap in cream cheese, dip in sriracha or hot sauce, and have fun!
