Copycat Fast Food Breakfast Sandwiches

Fast Food Breakfast Sandwich

Admit it… if you are like me, you are crunched for time in the mornings with getting ready for work and/or getting kids ready to get out the door and get to school on time. I am not a morning person. At all. I will sleep until the last possible second before I have to get up, shower and run out the door. Frequently this means breakfast on the go and I will often stop for a fast food breakfast sandwiches at the nearest fast food joint. But, that gets costly and you also never really know how they prepare it so that may mean lots of extra fat and calories. So, why not make a bunch at home a head of time, freeze them and have them at the ready when you’re running late? That’s exactly what I did yesterday.

This is actually quite easy and I had them done in a snap. I purchased a couple of those egg ring things at Bed Bath & Beyond so I can cook up my egg in the perfect little round shape to fit on my english muffin.

The ingredients are simple and the results are delicious breakfast sandwiches that you can assemble and freeze for those busy mornings.

Super easy to make and super tasty. Be warned though. If your skillet or griddle isn’t perfectly flat, some of the egg mix will run outside the ring. They key is to have your pan hot and pour just a little in at first to build your “base” before filling up the ring.

You can easily customize this by using entirely egg whites, add veggies to the egg mi or even change your cheese/meat. If you are vegetarian, there are options such as veggie bacon or veggie ham to use. It’s so versatile that your sandwich can be different every day.  And, for me, the time savings is essential…. I can hit the snooze button just one more time….

Great idea Lori! I make my husband breakfast each morning before work, but these would be great for when I’m out of town!

Can you freeze these egg cups?

I make a similar version. I have the ring but, it always leaks. I use the white tub that cake icing comes in(seems to fit the muffin perfect!). I usually make some Jimmy Dean sausage ahead. I spray coat the bottom of the icing tub, put a small amount of sausage in it, crack an egg on top, swish it around to cover and pop it in the micro for appro 1:10 min and check it..sometimes may take a few extra seconds. Put the muffin in the toaster. When done add your butter(on the muffin), cheese, and tip the tub of egg onto your muffin and it is delish! You can do this while you are getting ready to go to work.

Hi! Part of your Sits Tribe here. I’ve never used an egg ring, but I have made eggs in the microwave in a coffee mug. They come out round and go on the muffin easily.

What a great idea! I make a similar breakfast sandwich sometimes, but it has never occurred to me to try freezing it!


Valentina @ The Baking Fairy January 24, 2014 at 2:26 pm

This is such a smart idea! I’ve make breakfast sandwiches before, I just never thought to freeze them. And I might have to invest in those egg rings! When I made them, I would cook the eggs in a muffin tin with one egg per cavity, but that was usually too thick. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great idea! I love a quick breakfast, but don’t like going out for it. Thanks for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you next week.
