Do you hit that fast food drive through? Driving to work each day, I can admit that I end up at Starbucks getting my beloved turkey bacon and egg white sandwich. Add the coffee, and I have a nice Starbucks tab each month. Needless to say, working from home has been a money saver. These make ahead healthy breakfast sandwiches will save you the expense. In my opinion, they also taste better!
Now, before you run off like, “Krysten, I’ve tried those frozen breakfast sandwiches and the cheese sticks to the paper towel and the egg is always still frozen. I nearly broke my teeth eating the English muffin.” I know and that’s why I created my own. I do not recommend you freeze these. Taking ANYTHING from a completely frozen state to piping hot is always recipe for shoe leather not actual food you’d like to eat.
You can prep these make ahead healthy breakfast sandwiches at the beginning of the week. So, you have breakfast all week long. They take about 20 minutes to prep 6 sandwiches. Sandwiches will keep in the fridge for 5 days. This means you get through your week with a hot, protein rich breakfast every single work day. Sound good?
You have Options !
There are a ton of healthy combos you can put together. While I added turkey bacon to these, turkey sausage would work. You could also do veggie egg whites. If you look below in the recipe notes, I also give you tips for lowering the gluten and carbs as well as vegetarian options. Get creative with this. If you use more eggs or a different protein just be aware of the reheating time. I recommend you start with 30 seconds in the microwave and then continue heating in 15 second intervals until the sandwich is warm.
**NUTRITION NOTE- Information will Vary Depending on what ingredients you use and how light your cheese is. The sandwich will reduce to 270 calories and 11 grams of fat by omitting the cheese.
