Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches

 Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches

So sometimes I think I’m pretty clever.  Not often but sometimes.  Like when I decided there had to be a better way to make eggs other than frying them or poaching them. My mission was to make some breakfast sandwiches ahead of time so when I wanted one, I could just take one out of the freezer and microwave it. Frying all those eggs would take too much time and would be too messy. So I thought baking them might work if I found something that would allow them to hold their shape.  And so I set out to find the right shaped pan and voila! I found a Whoopie Pie pan that worked beautifully!  Here’s what I did…..

Buy a whoopie pie pan...either a 6 or 12 tin pan.

Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches

1 whoopie pie pan (6 or 12 tin)
6 eggs (or 12 depending on size of pan.
Non-stick cooking spray
English muffins or soft bagels
Ham or sausage patties
Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Crack your eggs into a small bowl one at at time. Generously spray the bottoms of your whoopie pan wells. Crack your eggs one at a time into each section.  

You can leave the yolks in tact or break them with a fork for less runny eggs.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Bake eggs on the center rack of the oven until whites are set and not jiggly.  Remove from oven and set aside.


Butter your English muffin or bagel.  Lay slice of cheese on bottom and top with a slice or two of ham or sausage. Place in oven for a minute or two until cheese is melted.  

Remove egg from pan, lifting each one with a spoon or a fork.  The egg whites turn out just like you fried them....not too thick or rubbery.  Instead you get a slightly crisp bottom and tender whites. Your eggs will lift out nicely.  

Place an egg on top of each sandwich and cover with top.  Enjoy now or freeze for later!

If you are making these ahead of time to freeze, allow to cool and then wrap each one in a ZipLoc freezer bag and store individually.  When ready to eat, wrap sandwich in a moist paper towel and microwave on high for about a minute.  Enjoy.

Where did I get my Whoopie Pie Pan?   I got one that makes 6 eggs at one time at Amazon for about $12.50.  Click on the links below for additional information.
