These easy to make, freezer-friendly Breakfast Sandwiches are perfect for meal prepping! Ingredients like eggs, cheddar cheese, bacon and baby spinach are sandwiched between two toasted English muffins. These are a wonderfully hearty on-the-go breakfast option!
Back to school season is right around the corner, which means for many moms, the season of crazy hectic mornings is upon you! Instead of pulling through a quick drive-thru for something greasy or heating up some store-bought frozen stuff that’s never fully satisfying, you should prepare a batch of homemade breakfast sandwiches ahead of time.
These bad boys are total life savers, whether you’re a busy parent getting your kid ready for school, or if you’re just trying to find something delicious to eat before clocking into work that actually hits the spot.
Meal prepping when I know I have a busy week ahead of me is something I love doing, especially for breakfasts. After all, it’s the most important meal of the day, right?!
I love that I can start my morning with a whole lot less stress knowing that I have a homemade breakfast sandwich waiting for me in the freezer.
And unlike the store-bought plastic wrapped stuff, these are actually delicious and will fill you up!
Between the perfectly scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, cheddar cheese and healthy spinach, these sandwiches are honestly the best way to really jumpstart your morning with the right amount of protein, carbs, and fat!
Ingredients for breakfast sandwiches:
- Eggs – I prefer using pasture-raised organic eggs.
- Salt – Kosher works best, but flaky sea salt is tasty too. Just be careful not to add too much!
- Pepper – Freshly ground black pepper is what I tend to use the most, as it has the best flavor.
- Cream cheese – Spreadable cream cheese is the best, but you can also opt for butter if you’d prefer. If you choose butter, go with unsalted.
- English muffins – Any brand of English muffins will work! Just pick your favorite so you know you’ll like it.
- Cheddar cheese – I like using the fresh slices straight from the deli.
- Bacon – While I use traditional pork bacon cooked nice and crispy, you can opt for turkey bacon or even a plant-based alternative if that better fits your diet.
- Baby spinach – Make sure the cups of spinach are really heaping!
- Any other proteins: if you really want to bulk this up, adding in a turkey breakfast patty or a chicken sausage patty would be a great addition!
How long do breakfast sandwiches stay fresh?
In the freezer, these sandwiches will last for up to 3 weeks.
Make sure to store them correctly by first wrapping them in aluminum foil or parchment paper before placing them in a Zip-Loc bag for optimal freshness!
You definitely want to avoid freezer burning these breakfast sandwiches.
Does the spinach freeze well?
Sadly, spinach is the one ingredient you’ll want to wait to add until it’s ready to eat.
Since spinach doesn’t hold up well in the freezer, make sure you have some fresh spinach handy and ready to toss onto the sandwiches once they’re ready to be eaten.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make it delicious!
