English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich

January 9, 2016 (Last Updated: March 10, 2019)

An English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich is perfect for weekend breakfasts, a meal on-the-go, or stocking up the freezer. 

English Muffin Egg Sandwich

Weekend breakfasts are my favorite.  I love taking the time to make something delicious.  However, even our weekends can be busy and there are times we need a breakfast on-the-go.  An English Breakfast Sandwich is just the ticket when we need something to eat in the car that is filling and nutritious.

Our mornings often start early with soccer, school, or skiing.  I  make up these breakfast sandwiches, get the kids up and pile them into the car.  Since we always have at least a 30 minute drive into town, there is plenty of time to eat.

 And while, I’d rather they sat at the table and ate a leisurely breakfast, it just doesn’t happen in our world everyday.   These sandwiches are delicious eaten at home for a leisurely weekend breakfast or a quick grab and eat on-the-go!

Breakfast Sandwich

The beauty about these beauties is you can make them ahead of time and freeze them.  They can be thawed and warmed in the microwave oven or in a regular oven.  Many times I make the morning we need them. They are a fairly quick breakfast to throw together.

 I try to use my homemade English muffins, or Sourdough English Muffins but any good English muffin will do.  I also vary the meat according to what I have on hand.  Sometimes it’s breakfast sausage, sliced ham, bacon, or I even make these meatless.  Any version is delicious.

    Great idea for the kids, mine would love these muffins, either in the car (like Sunday when we drove to the most booooooring and loooooogest soccer turnament I have ever seen – even for my son who was playing it got boring in the end!) or at home on a cosier Sunday morning… 🙂

    A grab and go breakfast is always a good thing to have on hand! Especially with such an active family! I personally want to spend my weekends in bed as long as possible, but I would sure wake up if someone would bring me one of these English muffin breakfast sandwiches! Those are worth getting up for!

    This sandwich is a great thing to have in the freezer! I’m usually too lazy and rushed to cook in the mornings, and I’d be so happy if I had this sandwich stashed in the freezer waiting for me! It’s like an Egg McMuffin, but better – no chemicals, you know exactly what goes into it!

    These are right up my ally Kathy! Breakfast is the one meal of the day that I actually enjoy cooking =) We have Tim Hortons around us and I love their breakfast sandwiches but they are $3.50 a piece. Too much! My kids each devour one or two and my husband I are want at least 3!) Do doing some quick math ~ that’s really pricy! Gotta cook at home if we ever want that trip to Florida. These look yummy!

    Homemade breakfast sandwiches really bring me back. When I was a kid I used to put a little mustard on mine…not sure I’d do that now. Haha. 🙂 I haven’t had one forever, and now I’m definitely craving them. These look so delicious!

    You need to open up a breakfast sandwich place or food truck with these beauties!! There is nothing better than sausage, eggs, and cheese stuffed between two slices of a homemade english muffin. I just ate breakfast but could totally eat one of these delicious sandwiches right now 🙂

    Oh, I totally second the weekend breakfast comment, Kathy! Breakfast is my favorite food of the day, but we keep it simple during the week. But the weekends? Oh yes, these english muffin sandwiches need to make an appearance next weekend! 🙂
