Recipe: Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

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?

makes 6

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Meanwhile, form the ground sausage into 6 patties and fry over medium-high heat until cooked through, flipping to brown both sides.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
