Breakfast Sandwich Recipes 3 Ways

Ingredients in breakfast sandwiches

All of these breakfast sandwiches are served on English muffins. The main ingredient in the breakfast sandwich is eggs. You need one egg per sandwich. I plan to make six sandwiches at a time, but its easy to double this recipe if you have guests or if you want to have a freezer full of healthy breakfast options.

To make each of the three varieties, you will also need:

  • Broccoli
  • Red pepper
  • Ground turkey
  • Swiss cheese
  • Bacon (either pork or turkey)
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Seasonings from your pantry

How to make breakfast sandwiches

Your instructions change slightly depending on the type of breakfast sandwich recipe you choose to make.

For the veggie and bacon and cheddar sandwiches, we will use scrambled eggs.

  1. Cook the bacon or the veggies first in the pan. The veggies can stay in the pan with the eggs. Remove the bacon when it is done.
  2. Add the scrambled eggs and seasoning to the pan.
  3. Toast the English muffin
  4. Assemble the sandwiches

For the sausage and swiss sandwich, its easy to make your own sausage patties. I like fried eggs on this sandwich instead of scrambled.

Ingredient substitutions

If you are concerned about wheat products or carbs, you can substitute a gluten free bread for the English muffin. Croissants, rye or whole wheat bread are other bread options.

You could use just egg whites if you want to lower the fat and cholesterol in this meal. You will need to double the number of eggs or plan two egg whites per sandwich.

Other veggies that taste great in scrambled eggs are:

  • Onion
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Zucchini
  • Mushrooms
  • Shallots
  • Grated carrots

You could use ground chicken or pork instead of turkey for the sausage patty. Another option would be to crumble the sausage and add it to the eggs instead of forming a patty. Ham, either diced or as a slice is a great source of protein for breakfast. Fish is an impressive and elegant addition to a breakfast sandwich. Perfect for guests or to add something special to any breakfast.

Other kinds of cheese that will work with eggs are:

  • Feta
  • Goat cheese
  • Pecorino
  • Gouda
  • Blue cheese

You can skip the cheese completely if you are dairy free.

For more variety, you can put unique toppings on your sandwich. Put these on right before you are ready to eat the sandwich. Some dont freeze well, so wait for the toppings. Try some of these for great flavor combinations:

  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Sriracha
  • Hot sauce
  • Sprouts
  • Tomato sauce
  • Aioli
  • Sour cream
  • Hummus
  • Cucumbers

Can you bake the eggs instead?

If you want, you can bake a large batch of eggs in the oven.

Eggs can be baked in a large pan with a flat bottom like a pie pan or baking dish. Just scramble your eggs, add your veggies and seasonings and pour it into a shallow dish. Bake for 15 minutes or until they are just set. This is especially important if you plan to freeze the sandwiches. Dont overcook them at this stage.

You could also put individual eggs into muffin tins. If you do that, you have single sized portions to put right onto the sandwich. To bake eggs this way, follow these instructions:

  1. Grease your muffin tin
  2. Crack the eggs right into the cups- one egg per muffin cup
  3. Flavor with salt, pepper or any other seasoning you want.
  4. Bake for 17 minutes at 350F

Storing and reheating

These breakfast sandwiches will last in the refrigerator for up to five days. That means that you can make a large batch of sandwiches and have breakfast ready for your whole family for the week.

To reheat breakfast sandwiches, put them in the microwave for a minute. To prevent them from getting soggy in the microwave, wrap the whole sandwich in a dry paper towel while microwaving.

Freezing breakfast sandwiches

In order to freeze breakfast sandwiches, let them cool completely and wrap them tightly in plastic wrap. They will last for two months in the freezer.

These frozen breakfast sandwiches can be thawed overnight in the refrigerator. However, if you forgot, dont worry! You can reheat the sandwiches directly from the freezer. Microwave them for a minute wrapped in a dry paper towel. Flip the entire sandwich over and continue to heat it until it is completely hot.
