Meat

  • If you are making bacon or sausage patties cook those first. For instructions on baking bacon go here. If pan fry either follow package instructions. Once cooked set aside.

Toast Bread

  • Preheat a fry pan over medium heat. Generously butter each half of the English muffins, then lay butter side down onto the hot fry pan. Toast the bread until golden. Alternatively, you can slice the bread, toast in a toaster and then butter if you want.

Fried Egg Sandwich

  • In a medium nonstick pan add 2 tsps butter and heat until melted. Crack your egg into the melted butter and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chives if using. Cook until the edges start to crisp and the egg white becomes mostly opaque (you can’t see through it).

  • Using a spatula, gently flip the egg and cook for another 1-2 minutes. If you want your egg yolk runny you will need to cook for ~1 minute. If you want the yolk hard cook for ~2 minutes. I like to gently press on the yolk to test for firmness to get the perfect soft fried egg. When egg is fried to your liking remove from pan and assemble your sandwich.

Scrambled Egg Sandwich

  • Whisk together eggs*, salt, and garlic powder. In a cold nonstick pan add the butter and the whisked eggs. Turn heat to medium and whisk continuously until eggs are cooked then remove from heat. *

Sandwich assembly:

  • I like to assemble my sandwich from bottom to top as so: toasted bottom half of English muffin, fried or scrambled egg, bacon or Canadian bacon, or sausage Pattie, slice of cheese, top piece of toasted English muffin.

Freezer breakfast sandwiches:

  • Make and assemble your sandwiches according to instructions above. Wrap each sandwich in parchment paper and place in a gallon zip loc bag. Freeze up to 3 months.
  • When ready to eat thaw in the fridge the night before then microwave for 30 seconds- 1 minute. If you have a toaster oven you can toast until crispy in that. You can also microwave from frozen but it will take a little longer in the microwave.

Notes

Tips and Tricks
  • *I will scramble all the eggs at once and then divide into 4 sandwiches.
  • *Continuous whisking and bring the pan, butter and eggs all up to temperature at the same time produces small curds and delicious and creamy scrambled eggs.
  • Nutrition info is based off of 4 scrambled egg breakfast sandwiches with bacon.
