Homemade breakfast sandwiches inspired by @macheesmo

‘member that day a few weeks ago when I ate fast food breakfast?! *gasp*

The good news wasn’t in fact, as one commenter suggested, “the start of a bender.”

I haven’t been craving fast food. But I have been dreaming of breakfast sandwiches 🙂 So Sunday morning, I decided to get all creative up in the kitchen, yo. What do you get when you go combine eggs, turkey bacon, sandwich thins and some shredded cheddar/mozzarella cheese?

Homemade breakfast sandwiches, of course! EASY EASY! Don’t flip out with excitement over the pan I used – it isn’t a specialty pan made for making eggs. It’s a specialty pan made for making muffin tops. I got it for a Christmas present years and years ago. It worked out well since it allowed the size of the baked eggs to match the sandwich thins.

BUT… if you don’t have a muffin top pan, you can use a regular muffin pan. Using a regular one actually works better if you are using English Muffins because they are more similar in size.

WANT.NEED.CRAVE the recipe? I’d love to take credit for it but the truth is, I knew I wanted to do it so googled “cooking eggs in the oven” and found Nick over at Macheesemo’s post on Breakfast Sandwiches. Check out Nick’s post for instructions on how to make them (trust me, they are EASY.)

I wrapped my sandwiches in foil and every day this week, will pop one in the toaster oven for a few minutes while I’m gathering my lunch for work.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get lost on Macheesemo’s site.

  1. Yummy! I’ve made these and one trick I have learned is reheat these using the defrost instead of the timed heat. They reheat more thoroughly.

    • Jen, a priorfatgirl says:

      you mean in the microvwave? Good tip – also, check out the actual post from Nick, linked above, for freezing/reheating tips. He gives tips on how to avoid them defrosting soggy.

      • Hi, Shala and Jen,
        I used the advice you both provided to avoid the sogginess.
        I guess I should also include Nick’s tips, too.
        Thank you very much. This was delicious!

  2. Oh those look good. I too have been craving breakfast sandwiches, and have made a few on my own, but hadn’t thought of prepping eggs BEFORE hand. That would have made too much sense, clearly 😉

  3. I’ve never had a breakfast sandwich. Ever. They kind of freak me out. I’ve made about a million of them because I used to work at Tim Horton’s (basically the Canadian Dunkin’ Donuts). But maybe I could try making it on my own, the healthy way. Those do look good.

  4. Delicious. My husband and I travel a lot so these would make a great addition to our on-the-road meals 🙂

  5. An even quicker way to make them is to cook the egg in the microwave. Just crack it into a small microwave-safe bowl, whisk it up, and cook for about 45 seconds. It gets nice and fluffy, very similar to an Egg McMuffin!

  6. I made breakfast sandwiches last week with these sad little rubber egg things that are supposed to keep them in perfect circles but they don’t!!…meanwhile my muffin top pan sat idly in my stove drawer! you have changed my life today

  7. Jen!

    Try The Lean Green Bean’s *90-second Breakfast Sandwich* on her site. It takes 40 seconds in the microwave and however long it takes to toast your bread. Bam! Done! Check it out. I make them all the time now.

  8. I make breakfast sandwiches almost every day. Usually with spinach. I cook the eggs in the microwave. My regular cereal bowls are perfect bread size!

  9. English muffin, with bacon and egg plus cheese is my favorite breakfast ever! I like to combine it with an orange juice or a milk, perfect to start my day! 🙂

  10. These look delicious! I need to prep some!

  11. This breakfast sandwich is better than Mc Donalds. It also tastes better. It is the perfect way to each while going out the door.

  12. i do admit i use to have these type of breakfasts all the time when i was larger – they were not home made though they were from the fast food joints. they are YUmmy

  13. Looks delicious, plus I love anything you can make ahead of time.

  14. What a great idea seems to be very easy to make. I am definitely going to try it. Thanks

  15. I live in the UK and Mac D are advertising their are own version of this. I’ve never been tempted by a Mac D ad, but this was hard to resist. Your’s look delicious and will definitely try.

  16. Made some after reading this. They are great! Made 6 with english muffins and turkey sausage and 6 with sandwich flat bread and canadian bacon. Used the new Sargento thin slices of cheese (only 40 cals per slice!)

  17. This sure beats one of those fast food egg McMuffins 🙂

  18. I love me a good breakfast sandwich, I will definitely have to try these!

  19. This is fantastic…what a great way to get my breakfast sandwich fix without compromising my health! Thank you.

  20. Those look to be a seriously good snack, and not just for breakfast, thanks for the great idea

  21. This is a brilliant idea for when I crave for a fatty breakfast. Will reduce my guilt!
