Ingredients needed to make this recipe
How To Make A Healthy Breakfast Sandwich
- Sauté the veggies. Heat up a pan on the stovetop with some oil or cooking spray. Add the onions and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add in the spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Whisk the eggs with some milk, salt & pepper, add in the cooled, cooked veggies + tomatoes and the shredded cheddar cheese.
4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes until the eggs are set and firm. Remove and let cool for a few minutes.
5. Once the eggs have cooled, use a round glass, top of a mason jar, or round cookie cutter to cut 6 even size circles. To do this, you want to place the round item (noted above) over the eggs and firmly press down and wiggle it a little. You may need to run a knife around the edges to release it. Pull some of the egg away and lift the circle of egg you cut using a small spatula or pie server.
6. Slice the English muffins, place them onto another pan and toast them in the 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. After 7 minutes, add the cheddar cheese slices to the bottom halves of the English muffins and place them back in the oven to melt for the last 3 minutes.
7. Place the cut eggs onto one half the English muffins and top with the other half or place the eggs onto the half with the cheese and top with the remaining side of the muffin. You can even eat them open face style.
How amazing and delicious does that look? These are so good and filing, which is even better! Plus you can make a bunch and have them ready all week long for a quick + healthy breakfast for the whole family. I mean, that is just fantastic!
How to store make ahead breakfast sandwiches
These sandwiches are so easy to store, of course my family eats them all once I make them, ha ha. If you are planning to make them ahead then you do not want to melt the cheese.
Once you are ready to build the sandwich, toast the English muffins then top with the egg and cheese (unmelted). Wrap each sandwich up tightly in parchment paper then foil. Place the sandwiches in a freezer-friendly bag or container and keep them in the freezer for up to a month.
You can also keep them in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
How to reheat these sandwiches
To reheat these sandwiches from the refrigerator, simply unwrap them and place into a clean paper towel and microwave for 30-45 seconds.
To reheat from a frozen state, unwrap and place into a paper towel then reheat in the microwave for 60-90 seconds.
- To cook the eggs, you want to use a 9-by-13 baking sheet since it is the perfect size for this recipe. You want to make sure to spray the baking sheet well with non-stick cooking spray so the eggs don’t stick to the pan.
- You can mix up the veggies and use steamed broccoli, roasted red bell peppers, mushrooms or even roasted butternut squash.
- Add some more protein like cooked sausage or ground turkey to the egg mixture before you cook it. You could even add some turkey bacon to the sandwiches when building them.
- If you don’t have English muffins then you can use bread and just cut the eggs into rectangle size pieces to fit the bread. Use the same method as the recipe to toast the bread and melt the cheese.
- Save the remaining baked egg for a quick snack or for quesadillas.
