These Make Ahead and Freeze Breakfast Sandwiches are not only delicious but so simple to prep ahead and freeze. Save money and make mornings easier.

With my husband working 80+ hours a week for several weeks in a row, we, as a family, needed to figure out some easy solutions to being rushed off to work in the morning. How about making breakfast sandwiches ahead of time, so all we have to do is pop them in the microwave to reheat them?

Here is a new family favorite! Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich!

These Make Ahead and Freeze Breakfast Sandwiches are not only delicious but so simple to prep ahead and freeze. Save money and make mornings easier.

Start with English muffins, split, with a bit of butter- put in the oven for 5 minutes at 400 degrees.

If all you have is shredded cheese, like me, then add the cheese to the muffins and put in the oven till cheese is melted. This makes it easier to handle, once it’s re-heated. No messy cheese everywhere!

Poach your eggs. I have a microwave egg poacher. Add about 1 tsp of water to raw egg, then microwave for 60-75 seconds.  Don’t let them go too long! THEY WILL EXPLODE (don’t ask me how I know that).

I don’t have a picture of this next step….. the bacon. I made it earlier in the afternoon. I didn’t pan fry the bacon. I put the bacon, on a lipped cookie sheet, lined with tin foil. Place it in a COLD OVEN, turned it on to 400 and cooked the bacon for about 16-18 minutes. Keep an eye on it! Nothing worse than burnt bacon!

Final step is to assemble the sandwiches. I individually pack each sandwich in a sealable plastic bag.

You can put these in the freezer, just make sure to seal them really well with either tin foil or plastic wrap. I’ll be honest though, in our house, we use them all within a week (I make 6-8 at a time) so we’ve never actually frozen any! Thawed, they take about 45 seconds to 1 minute to reheat in the microwave.

  3. Wow, these are so YUMMMMMY. I have already had to make a second batch.
    My teen son liked them so much helped make the second batch :o)
    I was smart enough to my name on enough to give me breakfast for each day I work. Teen son wanted to reserve some too, but I said only those who are involved in the cooking get to put their name on them, so he helped :o)
    I can see that we will have to make double batches in the future :o)

  4. So you just refrigerate them, but don’t actually freeze them?
