I'm on a freezer meal spree right now. I've got a bounty of meatballs and enchiladas and twice-baked potatoes and gnocchi I'm trying desperately not to eat before baby comes. I don't know that I'll succeed in not eating all my freezer meals before baby, but I'm trying real hard.
I definitely need to make a quadruple batch of these freezer breakfast sandwiches you can just pop in the microwave, because, well, I ate all the ones I made last time. They're just so good and so easy, I simply couldn't help myself.
Mornings are hard. Breakfast doesn't have to be.
With an inspired tagline like that, I should be the new PR person for frozen breakfast sandwiches, right? I wonder if my school background in PR/advertising could get me an in on those Jimmy Dean commercials. A girl can dream, right?
Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches
adapted from Damn Delicious
- 6 large eggs
- splash of milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 English muffins, split
- 1 lb. ground sausage (I use hot Italian)
- 6 slices of cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease six small ramekins or a muffin tin. Crack one egg into each with a splash of milk and whisk lightly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake until cooked through, about 12-14 minutes.
- Meanwhile, form the ground sausage into 6 patties and fry over medium-high heat until cooked through, flipping to brown both sides.
- Place meat, egg and cheese on the bottom half of each split muffin and top with remaining halves to create sandwiches. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store in a plastic freezer bag.
- To reheat, remove from plastic wrap and wrap sandwich in a slightly dampened paper towel. Heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, until heated through. Serve immediately.
