Who has time to make breakfast during the week?  Anyone…anyone?  That’s what I thought.  Whether you’re a working Mama or a (working) stay at home Mama, the Monday – Friday morning routine just isn’t easy.  I am constantly struggling to grab something to eat before I head out the door, often late.  I want something filling, healthy and easy.  Make ahead breakfast sandwiches to the rescue!  Y’all, these are easy to prep and seriously tasty.  Much tastier (and cheaper) than the fast food version.  Make ahead breakfast sandwiches


You’re going to start by heading to Walmart to pick up some  Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage Patties.  Don’t make the mistake I did and search the frozen breakfast aisle for these – you won’t find them there!

See where I did find them?  In the sausage/bacon refrigerated section.  So grab as many of those as your cart will fit (assuming you have the freezer space, of course), and head home.  You’ll want to pick up some English muffins, eggs and sliced cheese as well.

Now that you’ve got all of your ingredients, let’s get started.

1.Use a large muffin pan to cook your eggs.  The regular size muffin pans don’t work as well – the eggs are a little too small in diameter and too thick.  It makes a rather awkward sized sandwich.  Spray with a non-stick spray, and plop an egg into each muffin hole.  You can scramble them or not – whatever your preference is.  I did a few of each.

  1.    Cook them for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.  They look like this when they’re done.Make ahead breakfast sandwiches
  2.    Butter and toast your English muffins.  Plop them in the oven before, during or after the eggs are cooking.  Depending on the degree of toastiness you like, they’ll be done in 10-15 minutes.
  3.    Assemble your sandwiches.  Cheese is optional (but I mean, cheese isn’t optional right?).  Since the sausage patties are fully cooked you don’t need do to do anything with them.  SWEET! Make ahead breakfast sandwiches
  4.    Wrap and label.  I label everything that goes into my freezer – you wouldn’t want it to become “indiscernible hockey puck shaped item”, so just do yourself a favor and label them.

These work great as a make ahead and refrigerate or make ahead and freeze option, depending on how many you make and how long you want them to last.  In the mornings, just take out however many you need and warm them up in the oven.  Out of the fridge, they take about 15 minutes at 350 degrees F.

You can also microwave these if you’re in a crunch (or eating at the office).  The bread loses a bit of its crunchiness but they are still super tasty.

Now, on to lunch.  I {heart} homemade lunches!  I’ve come to the conclusion that everything that I make tastes better, is healthier and so much cheaper than eating out.  So I try as hard as I can to bring lunch with me to work every day.  But, again, time gets in the way.  I wanted something that I could literally grab and go, because in the mornings I have approximately 3 seconds of extra time.  So, here’s my tutorial on make ahead lunch wraps.  Here’s what you need.

  1.    Swing over to Walmart again, and pick up some of these little bites o heaven, err, I mean Tyson® Any’tizers® Snacks.  I got the honey barbecue flavor.   You’ll find them in the frozen food section.

  6.    Fold the bottom piece in, then fold the side in.  Keep rolling while holding everything nice and tight.  Here’s some pictures to help demonstrate.Make ahead lunch wraps Make ahead lunch wraps Make ahead lunch wraps Make ahead lunch wraps Make ahead lunch wraps
  7.    Wrap in foil.  These will stay in the fridge all week and are perfect for a grab and go lunch.  If you decide to freeze them, chop the lettuce and tomato and pack it the night before, grab your wrap out of the freezer and add it when you’re ready to eat.
  8.    And VOILA – lunch on the go.
