Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Freezer sandwiches that are surprisingly delicious!

Recipe makes 6 sandwiches, but I've found I can squeeze 12 sandwiches out of the recipe with ease.

10 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
6 slices Canadian bacon (optional)
6 slices cheese
6 English muffins

Heat the oven to 375°F

Whisk the eggs together with the milk and salt in a large mixing bowl. Film a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray, and pour the eggs into the pan. Place on the lower rack in the oven. Bake until the eggs are puffed around the edges with golden spots, and a paring knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely.

When the eggs are finished, place the English muffins cut-side-up on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for just a few minutes, until the edges are toasted. If desired, you can brush the muffins with butter before toasting.

Use a spatula to lift the eggs out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Using a large biscuit cutter or drinking glass (roughly the same size as your English muffins), cut 6 rounds out of the eggs.  I’ve found that I can get 8-10 rounds, so I can easily make 12 sandwiches using the scraps.

Top each muffin with an egg round, a slice of cheese, and bacon (if using). Finish by adding the muffin tops.

Wrap the sandwiches for freezing: Wrap each sandwich in a square of aluminum foil. Use a permanent marker to write the contents and date on the sandwich. Put all the sandwiches in a freezer bag or container. Freeze for up to 1 month.

Reheating instructions: Unwrap the frozen sandwich and place on a microwave-safe plate lined with a paper towel. (The towel helps absorb some of the melting ice so the bread doesn't get soggy.) Heat at full power for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the egg is warmed through.

I want to make these too. I bet Mom would have approved these for breakfast on a morning of a test day (especially if served with grape juice).
