5 Ingredient Friday

Egg and Muffin Sandwiches

1. 12 English muffins, split with a fork
2. 12 frozen sausage patties, cooked and well drained
3. 12 slices American cheese
4. 12 eggs
5. 3 Tbsp. butter

Cook the eggs as desired on a nonstick skillet, using 2 Tbsp. of butter. I like them over hard (instead of over easy). Make sandwiches with the English muffins, cooked sausage patties, cheese and cooked eggs.

Cool sandwiches in the refrigerator. When cool, wrap each in a microwave-safe paper towel and freeze. Package them into heavy duty ziplock freezer bags.

To heat, slightly unwrap the paper towel and microwave on high for one to two minutes until the cheese is melted and the sandwich is hot. Makes 12 sandwiches

*A great recipe to make lots of & freeze them for later!

Pamela said...

Isn't it funny that here this is my favorite at Micky D's and yet, I never thought of making them. Woohoo! Great idea! :)

well duh, Why didn't I ever think of freezing them for later, I only make what we need for the weekend.
Thanks for the idea!

Yummy! I eat these from McDonald's all the time but rarely make my own...I'll have to start. Thanks for sharing! =)

This is a great idea for my daughter throughout the week. Sounds too easy.

Kathleen Marie said...

An excellent idea for people on the run! Thanks!

Joe makes these for breakfast and they are delicious! I never thought about making more than we need and freezing them! I'll have to let him know so on some mornings we can just pop them out of the freezer and heat them up! Thanks!

So, I'm reading your recipe thinking to myself 'Hey, I've made these, only using biscuits!'

Then, I read a little further and find myself amazed that I haven't ever thought to freeze these types of breakfast sandwiches so that I can make them in bulk once in a blue moon rather than individually several times!

Genius, I tell you! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for participating in my Five Ingredient Friday recipe exchange. I do appreciate it!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who read this, hit themselves in the forehead, and said, "duh!" I make these for breakfast (minus the sausage) EVERY morning. DH and I eat them in the car on the way to work. We carpool. I even bought some Jimmy Dean frozen ones for emergency mornings, but never thought to freeze my own. I could make the week's worth on the weekend. Thanks for posting this one!

YUM! I actually had one of these this morning...but it was drive-thru. I'll have to remember this one when I start cooking again!
