Freezer Egg and Muffin Sandwiches

by Laura

Way back in 2009, I began making these freezer egg and muffin sandwiches. So I must admit, I was not a real morning person when my kids were younger. When my daughter was born, she has had medical problems. She ever slept good at night until we finally started using medication. So, I really value my sleep. Because of this, I never was the type of mom to get up and fix my kids breakfast. It’s usually a bowl of cold cereal.

Then on occasion, they would get Pop Tarts, Eggo pancakes (when they go on sale for a great price), or banana bread from my freezer as an option. So in 2009, I decided to try to make some items ahead of time to have for my kids in the freezer. I found a recipe at The New Frugal Mom for egg sandwiches. I managed to make them for about 44 cents a sandwich. Much cheaper than most you can buy.

When I priced these freezer egg and muffin sandwiches back then, the muffins were my most expensive item. They were $2.49 for 12. I probably could have purchased them for less if I had time to plan ahead and watch for a sale or go to a bread outlet. I got my Kraft cheese singles (16 slices in a pkg) for $1.50. The eggs were 99 cents a dozen. And a pkg of deli ham (Land O Frost w/ 36 slices in a pkg)for $2.79. Also, I made some with already cooked sausage patties that I bought in the freezer section at Walmart. The sausage ones did cost more.

Freezer Egg and Muffin Sandwiches


  • Author: Laura
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 English muffins, toasted
  • 1 dozen eggs, scrambled (I use a big electric skillet for this)
  • 6 American cheese slices, halved
  • 12 deli ham slices (or sausage patties or slices of bacon)

Instructions

  1. Scramble eggs; while eggs are cooking, split and toast muffins. (I cooked my eggs more like an omelet and then cut them into 12 squares).
  2. Once eggs are cooked, set up an assembly line of muffins, eggs, cheese, ham; assemble and allow time to cool, then wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze wrapped egg sandwiches in freezer bags or freezer boxes. I used a gallon size freezer bag to hold 4 sandwiches, these bad can be reused for each time I make them. Makes 12.
  3. To heat: wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 45-65 seconds. Be careful it will be nice and hot.

Just made these for my kiddos and 3 of them tried them this morning. I was pumped because the english muffins and cheese were on BOGO this week and I used canadian bacon since it was also on sale. The only problem we had when them when heating was the egg still staying cold. Did anyone else have this problem? Maybe defrosting first then cooking?

Emily, when you buy the store bought brands, the directions are to wrap the sandwich in a paper towel and to first set the microwave power level to 30% and heat for 1 min 30 sec. Flip the sandwich over and heat on high power for 50 sec…. Hope this helps! 🙂

I make the light version of these with whole wheat muffins, egg white only and turkey sausage or bacon.

We make these with bacon on occasion.

FYI, a package of 12 english muffins at Walmart costs 1.89. And I like them better than the name brand kind. You'll find them in the same area as the cream cheese, in the back of the store.

I agree, breakfasts can get stressful. You might want to try some freezer breakfast quiches. I like to make up "individual" ones wnad freeze, then they are good to go. Also, Taste of Home has a great recipe for freezer biscuits. You make them up ahead and bake when you want. They take about 15 minutes, but they are really, really good.

What a great idea!
I too struggle in the breakfast department. I have never really been much of a breakfast eater and I have passed that on to my kids and normally just throw cereal at them.

I will have to try this idea.

Thanks!

These are wonderful, infact I just ate one. I made up 16 of these, a mix of bacon, egg, and cheese and sausage, egg, and cheese. Also made a few for hubby with sausage and cheese (he doesn't really care for the eggs). They are really good and tasty!! I found the recipe over at https://onceamonthmom.com/ in the September menu.

This has always been a favorite 'grab and go' breakfast for my family. Another great freezer breakfast item is breakfast burritos with sausage/bacon, scrambled eggs, shredded cheese and hashbrowns in a flour tortilla.
