Muffin Tin Egg Breakfast Sandwiches

30 Dec

I’m all about easy in the morning.  On a work day, you will never find me making eggs or pancakes for myself.  Nope. Too much work.  Most days, I grab a banana and a yogurt, cold cereal, or the Overnight Oats I made the night before.

I like breakfast sandwiches, but again, I just don’t have the ambition at 6:45 AM to create one! Who’s with me?

Then I came across this BRILLIANT idea, muffin tin egg sandwiches! 

You’ll need these ingredients:
1 dozen large eggs ($1.25)
Shredded cheese, whatever kind you like – cheddar is great ($2.50)
Precooked meat– ham, bacon, Canadian bacon, turkey sausage patties ($2.82 for 8 patties)
English muffins ($2.44 for 12)

It is super cheap, too- did the math, and it averages out to $.86 per sandwich, vs. McDonald’s Egg McMuffin sandwiches which are $3.15 around here.

Pat wanted in on the action.

Step 1: Grease or spray each muffin hole

Step 2: Crack egg into each hole

Step 3: Sprinkle cheese on top, salt and pepper if you wish

Step 4: Cook at 350°F for 20-25 minutes, until the egg is no longer “jiggly” when you shake the pan.

Step 5: Let cool for a few minutes. Pop each egg out and wrap it up in a paper towel with the meat.

I even label mine with sausage, ham, etc. Yes, this does qualify me as a dork.

Step 6: Freeze.

Step 7: In the morning, pop a wrapped egg in the microwave for 45-60 seconds while you toast an English muffin. Assemble, and eat!

Thanks for the demonstration!

Note: The first time around, I added the meat on the bottom of each hole. They came out weird shaped and uneven. The second time, I cooked just the egg and cheese and wrapped it up with the meat afterward.  This worked a lot better.  If the meat is precooked, no need to cook with the egg!
