I personally love the Special K brand frozen breakfast sandwiches. But at $4-5 a box with only 4 sandwiches, it was getting kind of pricey. I had to find another way to have my favorite breakfast and save myself some money.
FROZEN BREAKFAST SANDWICHES
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- english muffins
- eggs, I used egg whites in the 16 oz cartons
- cheese, I used shredded
- meat of choice, I used turkey bacon
- baking dish
- non-stick spray
- cookie sheet
- aluminum foil
- sandwich bags
- “bake” the turkey bacon – an easy way is to use a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cook at 400 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. Once cooled, cut bacon into thirds for smaller pieces.
- cook the eggs – an easy way to cook so many at once is to oven bake them in a baking dish. Spray a 9×12 baking dish with non-stick spray. Then, pour in 2 cartons of egg whites and layer the top with shredded cheese. Leaving the oven at the same 400 degrees, bake for about 25 minutes or until no longer liquid. If you want to use whole eggs, bake them in a muffin tin!
- let eggs cool and then cut with a spatula into squares. With the 9×12 dish, I was able to cut approximately 15 pieces. You can use a biscuit cutter or circle cutters also, but then you will have waste around the edges.
- toast the English muffins on a cookie sheet in the oven for approx 5-10 minutes at 400 degrees. Tip: toast the tops and bottoms – the first time I made them I only toasted the bottoms, but they taste so much better with both toasted!
- assemble your sandwiches, let cool completely, put into sandwich bags, and freeze. Letting the sandwiches cool completely will help with cutting down on the heat condensation, which creates ice, and then water when you heat up your sandwich. Trust me and learn from my mistake!
When you are ready to eat, wrap a sandwich in a paper towel and heat in microwave for 1 – 2 minutes. The paper towel will absorb any moisture and keep the sandwich from getting too soggy. Enjoy!
On a recent trip to Costco, I was able to purchase huge amounts of all the ingredients to make approximately 30 sandwiches for the month. Saving money big time! This recipe can be adapted many different ways! I’m anxious to try sliced cheese and some bagel thins next! I’m kicking myself for wasting all that money on store bought!
Have you made these before? What’s your favorite combination?
