I get up at the butt-crack of dawn (reluctantly) because I have to get Chris’ breakfast, make his coffee, pack his lunch and send him on his way to work.Â Â Actually, I don’t have to, but I do it anyways.Â He sometimes wants his oatmeal with my home made peanut butter, but most of the times, he wants a breakfast sandwich.Â When he was dieting, he tried the Weight Watchers brand breakfast sandwiches, and they are like $8 for 6 teensy little sandwiches.Â Even with their coupons they come out with (you know, save $1 when you buy 20 of their products, or something ridiculous like that), they are not such a bargain.Â Â And me likes a bargain.
So, since I’ve been on a mission to make as much as I can myself, I figured out a way to make his breakfast sandwiches myself.
I bought whole wheat bagel thins, 2% cheese (Walmart’s Great Value brand), Jimmy Dean turkey sausages (combined coupons with a store sale for a great deal), and eggs.
The eggs are probably the most fun part.Â Because it’s a new way to make a lot of eggs at once.Â Grab your muffin tin (or silicone, in my case) and spray all of the wells with cooking spray.Â Crack your eggs and place the eggs in the wells.Â I also added a little Southwestern Egg Beaters for a little extra flavor.
Bake in the oven at 350Âº for about 15-20 minutes.Â Let them cool completely if you plan on freezing these like I did. Otherwise, you’ll have saggy sandwiches.Â When they are done cooking, they will look like this.Â (Remember, I added a little egg beaters to mine).
While your eggs are cooling (I put mine in the fridge for a few minutes to cool them down), toast your bread, bagels, or english muffins.Â I used whole wheat bagel thins.
Once the toast & eggs are cooled, you can start assembling the sandwiches.Â Â Bread / cheese / sausage / egg / bread. Repeat.
After they are all assembled, wrap good with plastic wrap and place in freezer.Â (It would probably be a good idea to place in a freezer bag as well).
To reheat, you can place in toaster oven, or regular oven at 375Âº for about 25 minutes.Â Â Â But if you’re in a hurry, and not much of a morning person, the microwave is your best friend.Â Â Â Remove all plastic, and cook on high power for 1:25.Â Â Then flip, and cook for another 25-35 seconds.Â Â In less than 2 minutes you’ll have a nice hot, breakfast sandwich!
