Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Posted on

Are you always rushing in the morning and never have time for breakfast? Try making these freezer breakfast sandwiches that taste just like a sausage and egg McMuffin, but even better because they’re homemade!

There are plenty of ways to customize this recipe to your liking! Let’s start with the eggs. If you want them to be perfectly round like McDonald’s, you can use molds. But if you don’t have them or don’t want to buy them, you can make scrambled eggs, fry them regularly and fold the edges, or bake them in the oven and cut them into squares.

Now, let’s talk about the protein. This recipe uses a mix of ground turkey and ground beef to make breakfast sausage, but you can use only turkey or beef if you prefer. You can also skip the sausage and go for turkey or beef bacon, or keep it vegetarian with just egg and cheese.

For the bread, English muffins work best because they freeze and reheat well without losing their texture. But if you’re not freezing them, you can use bagels, brioche buns, or sandwich bread instead!
