Let’s face it – the morning routine typically involves a lot of hustling and bustling to get out the door, which means breakfast is either a regrettable choice or doesn’t happen at all. But these make-ahead breakfast sandwiches will change your life … or at least your morning routine.
These sandwiches go from the freezer to hot and toasty in just a couple minutes. If you take a little time on the weekend to prep a few, you’ll be able to grab-and-go even on the most hectic weekday morning.
First: Make Your Sandwiches
Create your breakfast sandwich in the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker or by hand. The basic meat/egg/cheese combination is always a favorite, but if you prefer a lighter breakfast you can use whole wheat English muffins and add spinach or peppers instead of the ham, bacon or sausage.
Next: Cool, Wrap and Freeze
Let the sandwiches cool to room temperature and wrap individually with plastic wrap. Then put them in a large bag and store in the freezer.
Finally: Defrost and Enjoy
When it’s time for a quick breakfast, just remove one sandwich, wrap it in a paper towel and defrost in the microwave for a minute and a half. Then, cook on high for about 1 minute.
The Homemade Advantage
Sure, you could just buy the pre-made frozen breakfast sandwiches. Or maybe even hit the drive-through on your way to work. But making your own allows you to control the ingredients so you know exactly what you’re going to eat. Extra cheese, sliced tomato, turkey bacon, whole-wheat English muffin … any option is possible when you use the breakfast sandwich maker.
The Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker is all about making fresh breakfast sandwiches you can grab and go. Go from freezer to fabulous any day of the week!
