English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches

I’ve talked a lot already about how breakfast is my favorite meal. I can’t go about the day without it, especially a big cup of coffee. During the week though, it is tough to find the time to have something quick and hearty sometimes. So when I made my homemade English muffins this week, I decided to use some of them in these amazing, make ahead English muffin breakfast sandwiches! I made them all at once, then froze them to reheat quickly during the week. They were so simple and yummy.

I made the eggs for the English muffin breakfast sandwiches first. They had a lot of flavor from scallions and seasoning. The best part was I didn’t have to babysit them! I poured them onto a sheet pan and just baked them until they set completely. That way I could cut out four perfect rounds that fit my English muffins. There weren’t a lot of scraps left, so I just snacked on them while I worked on the sandwiches. Recipe testing is rough, I tell ya!
The only sausage patties I found were too small for my English muffins. So I doubled them up so that the ratio of all of the ingredients became equal. They needed to cook for about 4 minutes on each side. Then it was time to assemble the English muffin breakfast sandwiches.
I layered the cheese on the bottom, then the egg rounds and sausage. That way the cheese melted a little between the toasty English muffins and hot eggs. These babies were ready to eat immediately! I wanted to have breakfast ready for the week though, so I froze the English muffin breakfast sandwiches.

When I was ready to have one the following morning, I put it on a microwave safe plate and heated it up on high for 2 minutes. It was piping hot and perfect! The cheese got really bubbly and everything melded together gloriously. This was such a fantastic, much less processed version of a fast food breakfast sandwich and I was in heaven! Hope all of you fellow breakfast lovers enjoy these sandwiches as much as I did. xoxo

  1. First, make the eggs. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and get out an 8 x 8 baking pan. Spray it well with cooking spray. Then whisk the eggs, milk, scallions, salt and pepper together in a bowl until it is smooth. Pour the mixture in the pan and bake it for 20-25 minutes, until it is completely set. While the eggs bake, cook the sausage patties according to the directions. They usually take about 4-5 minutes to cook on each side. Set them aside. Split and toast the English muffins as well .
  2. Now it's time to assemble! Take the cooked eggs and use a 3.5 inch round cutter to cut out 4 egg rounds from it. Place a slice of cheddar on the bottom half of each muffins, followed by and egg round and either 2 small sausage patties or 1 big patty that fits the sandwich. Close them with the top halves and serve immediately! These also can be make ahead. Wrap the sandwiches in foil, then place them in freezer bags. Microwave them for about 2 minutes for an easy breakfast later in the week!
