Freezer Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

A few weeks ago when I was visiting my parents, I tried some egg and sausage sandwiches that my mom had prepared ahead of time and froze.  They are just glorified Egg McMuffins, but I was very surprised at how great they tasted after being frozen and then reheated in the microwave.  I made a batch a few weeks ago and we went through them so quickly that we are already on our second batch.  They are a great grab-n-go breakfast when you are short on time.

This recipe would also be such an easy way to serve a crowd, especially if you wanted something ready completely ahead of time.  I’m definitely bookmarking this recipe to make ahead and pack in a cooler for future trips – all you need is a small freezer and microwave to prepare these egg sandwiches once you get to your ski condo, beach house, summer-getaway cabin, etc.

Ingredients
  • 12 eggs
  • 12 English muffins (I used whole-wheat)
  • 12 breakfast sausage patties
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat broiler on oven. Split the English muffins and place on a large baking sheet. Toast both sides under broiler (1-2 minutes). Set English muffins aside. Turn off broiler and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cook sausage patties in a frying pan until completely cooked and nicely browned. Set sausage patties aside.
  3. Crack all the eggs into a large measuring cup, add salt and pepper (to taste), and whisk thoroughly. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and pour the egg mixture evenly into the 12 cups. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the eggs are set.
  4. Remove eggs from oven and top each cup evenly with the shredded cheese. Return to oven until cheese is just melted. Remove from oven.
  5. Assemble the sandwiches in the following order: 1 English muffin half, one egg and cheese round, one sausage patty, 1 English muffin half.
  6. Once the sandwiches are cool, wrap each one individually in plastic wrap and place each wrapped sandwich into a resealable freezer bag.
  7. To reheat- Remove plastic wrap and wrap egg sandwich in a paper towel. Microwave for 1 and ½ to 2 minutes (depending on the strength of your microwave.)
