Breakfast Sandwich


My husband used to like the scary breakfast muffins from the fast food restaurants. I tried a bite once then suggested we change that routine. To me, nothing about that bite tasted like real food. So I started making our own breakfast muffins, froze the extras in the freezer so he could take them to work and heat them or just grab one on the go. These taste great and are a healthy breakfast or I even like them for lunch. You can decide what you want to put on your muffins. The favorites for the children are ham, bacon or sausage, or you can make them without meat. The very best is to make your own English muffins using our recipe Simply Homemade English Muffins. It may seem like a time consuming process but it really isn't, there time while you are making them to multi-task and in the end you have 20-24 delicious homemade English muffins! Use your favorite English muffins if you don't have time to make your own. This recipe is for 6 egg breakfast muffins. If you are making meals ahead, triple the recipe for about 20 breakfasts.
Ingredients for the Egg Muffin:
6 English Muffins (or as many as you want to make)
5 eggs, scrambled
1/3 c milk
1/3 cup cheese of your choice, you can use shredded or sliced cheese
Cooked meat of your choice, ham, bacon, sausage or Canadian bacon
Optional - veggies such as diced peppers, mushrooms, shallots, onions
Directions:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and add milk. Whisk together. Pour egg mixture into a pan over medium heat on the stove and stir eggs until they are cooked. 
  • Place cheese over the top of the eggs and turn off heat, the cheese will then melt. 
  • Slice your English muffins in half and toast them, butter them lightly (optional) once they are toasted. You are now ready to put your muffins together. 
  • Add meat to half of a muffin then add the egg and cheese mixture. Top with the other half of the muffin and enjoy your delicious breakfast!
If you are going to freeze some of the muffins, follow the instructions above and wrap in foil. Place in freezer until you are ready to eat them. Heat them in the microwave or oven until they are warm.
Love and peace,
