I’ve been making more of our meals from scratch lately, and also replacing convenience foods; breakfast sandwiches have been a big one! My husband takes one to work with him every morning so the change to homemade has saved us money and they are healthier for him. ^_^
They are easy to make and I can do as few or as many as I need to at one time because there is no “recipe.” They are made from turkey sausage, Egg Beaters*, english muffins, american cheese, and salt & pepper. Once the eggs are cooked, everything is just layered on the english muffin, wrapped in foil and frozen.
We use fully cooked, refrigerated turkey sausage which doesn’t require heating before adding it to the sandwich.
Here’s how I make his breakfast sandwiches:
A few notes:
*I’m pretty sure real eggs could also be used (as long as you scramble them first) but we use Egg Beaters as part of Stephen’s lower cholesterol diet.
**I first made these with a full slice of cheese on each sandwich but he said it made it too cheesy/messy. I halved it and he thinks it’s perfect.
***We’ve only frozen enough for a week and a half at the most because we’re limited on freezer space. We reuse the foil each week; when he gets a sandwich out, he folds the foil into itself and puts it in a freezer bag and back in the freezer. We do this because we don’t want the tiny food particles left at room temperature.
Which convenience food(s) do you like making?
