Want a quick, nutritious breakfast option? Look no further than the freezer. Grab everything you need and make these scrumptious freezer breakfast sandwiches for your next meal prep.

Freezer breakfast sandwiches

The breakfast sandwich has deep roots in the United States reaching as far back as the Civil War. If you ask me, a sandwich that has a history that long is a sandwich worth keeping around. There are as many variations of breakfast sandwich as you can think of, and this recipe sticks to the classic formation. English muffin, eggs, cheese, and meat - you can't go wrong!

Now you could always venture out to your local breakfast joint and pick up a breakfast sandwich, but this recipe is going to be healthier and much cheaper! With just a few ingredients, you'll have 12 breakfast sandwiches ready to go for the week or even longer if stored in your freezer.

Freezer breakfast sandwich ingredients

Gather these ingredients and you'll be ready to prepare these meal prep sandwiches:

  • English muffins
  • cheddar cheese or your favorite cheese
  • your choice of breakfast meat (canadian bacon, ham, turkey, sausage patties, cooked bacon)
  • eggs
  • milk
  • salt & pepper

Breakfast sandwich substitution ideas

  • Cheese: Use your favorite cheese! I love cheddar for breakfast sandwiches, but pick whatever suits your fancy.
  • Meat: Same goes here for the meat. This recipe (and its nutrition) uses canadian bacon but you should use your favorite breakfast meat. Some options are canadian bacon, ham, turkey, sausage patties, or cooked bacon.

How to make freezer breakfast sandwiches

  • Gather all ingredients for this recipe and preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Add eggs, milk, salt, and pepper to a bowl. Whisk well.
  • Generously grease a rimmed baking sheet. Pour the egg mixture onto the baking sheet. Bake at 325 for about 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool.
  • Take out of the oven and let cool. Once cool, cut the eggs into 12 squares.
  • Make an assembly line for the breakfast sandwiches. Start by cutting the English muffins in half. Place an egg square on one of the halves.
  • Add meat on top of the egg square.
  • Place a slice of cheese on top.
  • Add the other half of the English muffin.
  • Wrap each sandwich individually in tin foil or parchment paper. Place the wrapped muffins in a sealed reusable bag and place in the freezer.
  • To reheat the frozen breakfast sandwiches:
  • In Microwave: Thaw in the fridge overnight. Wrap in a paper towel and place in the microwave for 1 minute. Flip and heat on other side for 30 seconds. If still frozen, cook for another 30 seconds until warmed all the way through.
  • In Oven or Toaster Oven: Thaw in the fridge overnight. Place in the oven at 350 for about 10-15 minutes or until warmed all the way through.
  • If you're enjoying the sandwiches right away, go ahead and heat up in the oven. If you'll be consuming the sandwiches within 5 days, assemble the same way but no need to freeze them.
  • Top with hot sauce if you want an extra kick!

How long do breakfast sandwiches last in the freezer?

These breakfast sandwiches will last in the freezer for up to a month. That's 30 whole days to enjoying these sandwiches! This makes it a great recipe to use for meal prep as well.

How to cook eggs for freezer breakfast sandwiches

This recipe calls for the eggs to be cooked on a sheet pan in the oven. This simplifies the process immensely. First, you mix milk, eggs, salt and pepper. Then you spread on the rimmed baking sheet.

After the eggs have been thoroughly cooked in the oven, simply remove the tray and cut into 12 pieces. Then, you're ready to start your assembly line and get the sandwiches ready to go!
