One of my biggest weaknesses… breakfast sandwiches. Not because I love breakfast, but because I’m lazy. I have a bad habit of waking up late and stopping at Starbucks for a quick fix. While I love their standard sausage sandwich, I usually opt for the reduced fat turkey bacon option. I feel like if I’m going to spend the money, I won’t feel as guilty if I make the healthier choice.
This week, I tried something new… making breakfast THE NIGHT BEFORE. Crazy! The powers of the internet informed me that I could make a breakfast sandwich (or 5) ahead of time and freeze them! All I’d have to do is pop it in the microwave in the morning.
I was skeptical… but I decided to take a stab at it. I went the healthy route and managed to make a Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich that was under 300 calories!
So here’s what you’ll need:
-Eggs (however many sandwiches you want to make)
-Cheese (you’re choice, but I went with slim cut extra sharp cheddar)
-English Muffins (I went with whole wheat)
-Sausage (I used low cal turkey, but you can do regular or vegetarian)
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Spray your muffin tin with nonstick spray.
If you want your eggs scrambled, crack them into a bowl first. If not, just crack them directly into the muffin tin.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
While the eggs are cooking, you can prep your sandwiches. I let my sausage thaw and put them in the microwave for a few seconds. Got my cheese ready & cut my english muffins in half.
Once the eggs are cooled, you can assemble the sandwiches.
Wrap them in plastic wrap or put them in individual plastic bags. Pop into the freezer (or eat one).
When you’re ready to eat one, take it out of the bag/plastic wrap & wrap in a paper towel. Microwave for 1 minute (adding 30 seconds if it’s not heated through).
