An English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich is perfect for weekend breakfasts, a meal on-the-go, or stocking up the freezer. This delicious breakfast sandwich is filled with eggs, cheese and bacon, ham or a sausage patty. You could also leave the meat out and have a vegetarian breakfast 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 quick grab and go breakfast.

An English Muffin 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 everyday. These sandwiches are delicious eaten at home for a leisurely weekend breakfast or a quick grab and eat on-the-go!

English Muffin

I often use my homemade English muffins, or my Sourdough English Muffins but any good English muffin will do. Toast the muffin  in a toaster.

Eggs

Scramble an egg and cook over low heat. Once in the pan, don’t break up the eggs. Try to keep the egg in one big patty. It makes it easier to eat the sandwich because the egg won’t fall out the sides. 

  1. Scramble eggs and add to a hot frying pan
  2. Use a spatula to contain and shape egg patty
  3. Flip egg patty and finish cooking

Cheese

Pick your favorite type of cheese. Almost any will do. I often use sliced cheddar, pepper jack, or American cheese. If you want your cheese soft and melted, add it to the egg while still cooking. Just flip the egg and top with cheese. Dawn at Girl Heart Food also has a good trick for melting cheese.

Meat

Adding meat to these breakfast sandwiches is totally optional. I like to add cooked breakfast sausage, bacon or slices of ham.

Can I freeze a breakfast sandwich?

Yes, these breakfast sandwiches can be frozen.  Allow sandwich to cool. Wrap in foil and then place in a freezer safe bag. To use, pull a sandwich out and unwrap from foil. Wrap in a paper towel and place on a microwave safe dish. Microwave for 1-2 minutes until warmed through. 

Make to go

When I make these to be eaten on our way into town, I cook up enough sandwiches for everyone. I wrap each one in foil and place them in a preheated 250 degree oven until I’m ready to go. These helps keep the breakfast sandwiches hot until we are ready to hop into the car.

These sandwiches are perfect for lunch or dinner too! Don’t let the name fool you that they can only be eaten for breakfast!
