Getting ready in the morning can be hard. There is that constant feeling of feeling rushed. Due to time crunches people skip out on breakfast which is a BIG no-no. Breakfast helps you start the day out right. It keeps you focused and energized to get you ready to push through the day.
Breakfast sandwiches is the way to go for a busy or not so busy person. They are portable and fast. Perfect for a rushed morning. Did I mention they are nutritious?
Each sandwich has 20 grams of protein in them! It also includes complex carbohydrates, calcium, and lots vitamins. The sandwiches are also customizable. So feel free to include different types of sausage, cheese, English Muffins, etc.
Good Morning Breakfast Sandwiches
Makes 6 sandwiches
- 6 sausage patties
- 6 english muffins
- 6 eggs
- 3 slices of cheese (I used swiss)
- salt and pepper
- optional: vegetables to mix in with the eggs or add on sandwiches
- muffin pan (12 muffin slots)
- panini press
- Pam or any other cooking spray
- big bowl
Preheat your oven to 350* F.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 6 eggs. Add in salt and pepper to taste. You may also add in herbs. For example, I put in purple shallots, chives, basil, tarragon, chervil, bay leaf, and dill weed. (It is part of a seasoning mix) If you would like, you can add vegetables in there. I tried bell peppers once. Spinach or kale is also a good choice!
Spray your muffin tray with a good amount of Pam or other cooking spray so the eggs don’t stick. Pour the egg mixture into each pocket, about 1/3 of the way through. Pop them in the oven for 10 minutes.
They should look something like this…
Next, cook your sausage according to the instructions. Once the 6 patties are done, set them off to the side. I used Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage patties, but you may use regular, pork, vegetarians, whatever you please.
Get your english muffins out and cut them in half. With the cheese, cut each slice into fourths. Place a piece of cheese on each half. I used the Sargento’s ultra thin baby swiss slices. You may choose any type of cheese you want like American, cheddar, provolone or mozzarella. Anything to satisfy your cheesy needs!
Now it is time to assemble! Put one piece of egg (you should have 12) on each english muffin half.
Then put a sausage patty on one of the sandwich halves.
Now, squish them together to make a sandwich!
Get out a panini press (or make a homemade one like this) and press all of the sandwiches so they are more compact. Believe, they make them so much easier to eat!
Once they are all press let them cool COMPLETELY!
I was bored while I was waiting for them to cool, so I drew cute little designs on the bags with a sharpie. Get creative! In the past I have done Bible verses, shapes, dots, fruit cartoons, etc.
Once they are cooled, it is time to bag them. Take some parchment paper and fold them over the sandwiches. Once they are folded, bag them in the cute little baggies you made.
Once they are bagged, pop them in the freezer for later use!
When you are ready to eat them, pop them in the microwave for about 2-2.5 minutes or until completely warmed up.
There you have it! An easy and simple way to have a nutritious breakfast in the morning.
