Breakfast Sandwich

If you’re not a breakfast eater, you should be! Since time seems to be the number one excuse, I’ve got a high protein solution to your problem.  Fast, tasty, healthy, and frugal.  No more excuses!

Breakfast Sandwich

Slice and toast your buns (mine fit in my toaster, but you may need to use a toaster oven or regular oven).  Spread butter on each slice.  Fry the eggs.  Layer cheese, meat, and eggs.

Where does the quick come in?  Everything but frying the egg can be done ahead of time!  Keep the hamburger buns in your freezer.  Cook up some meat and keep it in the freezer, too.  The meat can be thawed and the bun toasted in the time it takes to heat your skillet and fry your egg.

A balanced breakfast is key to your good health and metabolism.

What did you eat for breakfast today?

  1. We enjoy those regularly and they made it onto the month’s *pantry* plan a few times!


  2. Okay… YUM and you’re right.. could be super easy and fast! Think I need to get some pre-cooking done!!
    PS I ate Fiber One Raisin Bran clusters for breakfast which I do love. But a breakfast sandwich here and there would be great, too. Plus maybe if I made them for my DH, then he might start the day off with a better breakfast rather than skipping…. Thanks for the great idea!

  3. That looks awesome. I bet my kids would love it, too!

    We had buttermilk pumpkin pancakes and bananas today!

  4. Mmmm…looks tasty. Around here it’s oatmeal with cinnamon most mornings.

  5. I love these! I should do this this weekend.

  6. My Honey would LOVE those. And I wouldn’t have to get up too early to send him off with a warm breakfast if I cooked everything else ahead of time!

    I had gummy bears for breakfast. Trust me, it IS the breakfast of champions :0)

  7. Yum! This looks great…we do these if we have english muffins, but making the homemade buns would be even better! Thanks for the great idea!

  8. Looks good!
    Around here it’s normally toast and fruit or yogurt, but if I have my act together, I make a sandwich too…

    I use refrigerator biscuits, scrambled eggs, cheese and meat; put them together in an assembly line and stick them in the fridge.

    In the am, the kiddos stick them in the microwave for 30 sec and they are perfect.

  9. I love me a good breakfast sandwich and it’s so much better (and cheaper) for you than McD’s. I generally use ham when making up my breakfast sammies because it’s the fastest cooking and least messy. I have a good recipe for english muffin bread that is a loaf and you just slice and toast, but I don’t know how to do muffins either.

    BTW, yes ma’am, I did eat my breakfast today. Oatmeal with a glass of low sodium V8. It’s time to cleanse out all of the rich holiday yummies and drop a few pounds.

    • I’m with you on the oatmeal, but I cannot choke down V8 for the life of me. Love my veggies, love chili and such, but can’t drink that stuff… I’m strange. 😉

  10. My Mom used to have breakfast sandwiches similar to this ready for us in the mornings.

    I’m impressed that you make your own hamburger buns. I attempted making honey wheat bread one time and it turned out very…um…dense? Not sure what happened. :~)

  11. I had a breakfast sandwich like this for lunch today (minus the sausage). Wasn’t in the mood for any “lunchy” foods, and I saw this yesterday and it looked pretty good! 🙂

    For breakfast, we had apple baked oatmeal. Yum!

  12. Amy, I love this idea, but I have a question: why would you do everything except cook the egg? I know that you make breakfast burritos and cook the eggs & assemble them before putting in the freezer – what would be the difference between that & this sandwich?

    I always need something that I can eat in the car, so this sandwich would be perfect. This morning I grabbed 2 slices of bacon on my way out the door, and intended to drink my green smoothie (strange combo, I know) in the car but the bad weather made me think twice – needed to concentrate on driving w/both hands on the wheel! Still have the smoothie – not a good breakfast day for me… 🙁

    • Good question! You’re right… I’ve kept scrambled eggs in the freezer before. Hmmm, might need to freeze a batch completely and see what happens. Sure would make my hubby’s early hunting mornings a lot smoother!

  13. I agree that breakfast is so important. This is my hubby’s cup of tea, though, and would keep him going for quite a while. I made bread for dinner tonight and Joe was in heaven – I’m sure your family feels the same way about your homemade buns.

    Thanks for linking to Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays!

  14. My son and I used to love fried egg sandwiches. I plan to make them again now that I’ve found a good gluten-free bread AND a recipe for some buns to make myself. I’d love to make up a bunch of these as a gift for my son at college. 🙂 Thanks for the idea!


  15. Rebecca L. says:

    I have made these with fried eggs before, I just assemble them over the weekend and freeze. We pull them out and heat them and they are fine. I am going to try these with scrambled eggs, I think the kids would enjoy them more.

  16. If you’re in a hurry, scramble the egg with a T of water, put in a glass dish and microwave it for about a minute ~ quick and easy, already round to fit the bun, too! Love breakfast sammies!! =) (and, do try the homemade english muffins ~ super simple! and even easier if you make it into a loaf and slice for toast!)

    • I remember the first time someone showed me a scrambled egg cooked in the microwave. It blew my mind! (I was just a kid and we were staying with some friends who must have been more “high tech” than my family – lol. )

      • I know ~ me, too! Once I found out about this, I cook them this way for my girls a lot … they are the perfect size when cooked in a Pyrex ramekin!
