Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwich with bacon egg and cheese

Are you looking for a quick, healthy, and delicious breakfast option that fits seamlessly into your busy morning routine?

These customizable make-ahead breakfast sandwiches are perfect for busy people who need something quick and on the go.

With a teen and a preteen in our house, we’ve been on the hunt for breakfast options that are “non-drippy” and easy to eat on the way to school. One of them even said these taste like a fast food bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich, but our version is made with much healthier ingredients. Oh, and adults love them, too!

Ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Filling of choice. I used:
    • Bacon, Egg & Cheese Patties:
      • Cooked bacon
      • Chopped chives or green onions
      • Cheese (optional)
    • Veggie Patties (1 cup of chopped veggies + cheese of choice)
      • Broccoli
      • Mushrooms
      • Green Onion
      • Feta
  • Healthy cooking spray
  • Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
  • Black pepper

Storage & Reheating

  • Refrigerator: Store the egg patties separately in a glass container. When ready to eat, just toast the muffin and warm the egg patty in the microwave at 50% power for 1-2 minutes, or use a toaster oven.
  • Freezer: Toast the bread first and let everything come to room temperature. Assemble the sandwiches, wrap them in parchment paper or plastic, and store them in an airtight plastic bag. Label with the date and remove all the air. To reheat from frozen, toast in the toaster oven for about 3-4 minutes, or microwave at 50% power for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.

Veggie Patties:


Bacon, Egg & Cheese Patties in a Donut Pan:

  7. Toast your English muffins or buns of choice. Add an egg patty to each.

Veggie Patties or 8×8 Baking Dish:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
