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.

Add veggies to your egg mix for more flavor and texture
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.

I can hit the snooze button just one more time….
