#SawPinnedConquered: Breakfast Sandwiches

Welcome to #SawPinnedConquered- Week 3! What did you pin and conquer this week?

First up, meet my cohost Savannah:


Hey y'all! I'm Savanah, a 20 something nurse living in Houston. I blog over at What Makes Savanah Smile about life, wedding planning, my 2 furbabies and everything else you can think of. I'm marrying John, my fiance', December 17th in Cancun! I love my animals, Mexican food, mani's and pedis, my iPhone, zebra print, and I'm a coke zero addict. Hope y'all will come by and visit!

Since going back to work recently, I've been trying to simplify the way I do certain things (specifically morning routines,) in an effort to save time.
Most mornings I eat Greek yogurt with fruit and a package of Belvita crackers, but every now and then I want something more hearty. I'll usually go for a bagel and cream cheese, but then I get that heavy-bagel stomach ache til about 2pm, so that doesn't always work.

I pinned this recipe/technique awhile back and was excited to try it last weekend.


Frozen Breakfast Sandwiches
Original Source here

Ingredients:

12 English muffins, split and toasted
12 large eggs
12 slices of Canadian bacon
12 slices of American (or other) cheese
Cooking spray
Salt & Pepper

The direction are rather simple: Spray (or coat with butter) a cupcake pan and break the eggs into the individual cups. I broke the yokes prior to baking with a fork so they would be more like the fast food ones. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.


While the eggs are baking, toast up the English muffins.  I just split them on a tray and put them in the 350 oven.


Once the eggs are out of the oven, begin assembling.




The next step is important- I know because I skipped it unintentionally. Once the sandwiches are assembled, put the whole tray (unwrapped) in the freezer for about an hour. This will allow them to start to freeze as well as give off some moisture. If you don't do this, there will be liquid built up and everywhere when you go to reheat them. Trust me. Don't forget about them, after an hour takeout of the freezer and individually wrap in foil or plastic wrap (I used wax paper.) and put in a freezer-safe bag.


I made these late Sunday evening, so 2 mysteriously disappeared off the tray...

Reheating: The best way to reheat them is in a 350 oven for about 20 minutes.  You can reheat in a microwave out of convenience, but the English muffin will be soggy.

Overall I was extremely happy with the results, and will remember to flash freeze them before wrapping them up. I am excited to try a bunch of different sandwiches: spinach, swiss, veggies, turkey bacon, etc! The possibilities are endless.

Is this something you would try?

  7. I have seen these going around pinterest also. Although it is a little disappointing to hear that microwaving them isn't the best idea. For me I would freeze them specifically so I could grab one out of the freezer and pop it in the microwave. If I have to spend 20 minutes letting it heat up in the oven, I might as well make a fresh one! I will probably still try them though :)
