Budget Friendly Breakfast – Freezable Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwiches #SundaySupper

[ 42 ] January 13, 2013 |

Wahooo! #SundaySupper turns ONE, y’all! Family Foodie’s mission to “Bring back Sunday Supper Around the Family Table in every home” has been growing by leaps and bounds.  This week #SundaySupper is celebrating a huge milestone, and I could not be happier to be a part of it. I love the benefits of eating together as a family, and we practice it daily in our home. I know it will be tougher to continue, as my children get older, but for now I am instilling in them, the importance of sharing your day’s events with your loved ones around the family table.

Our #SundaySupper crew is celebrating this week’s birthday event by choosing recipes from contributors that have inspired us in the past year. Hmmmm…such decisions. How do you choose just one recipe from 52 weeks of awesomeness? I start at the beginning. Beginning reminds me of morning. Morning reminds me of breakfast. Breakfast reminds me of bacon.
Voila!  Freezable Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwiches!

Freezable Bacon Egg and Cheese Sandwiches 1

I worked my egg sandwiches slightly different than my inspiration foodie, Angie, over at Big Bear’s Wife. I decided to go even easier, mix all my ingredients together in one dish, and bake the mixture in the oven. Each bite of egg is filled with crumbled bacon and cheesy goodness! I even used a cookie cutter trying to get fancy, but the edge of the cutter should have been sharper. Those eggs sure look fluffy though, don’t they? :-)

Ingredients:
8 eggs (I used the liquid eggs in a carton 2 C.)
4 oz Shredded cheese (I used 2% mozzarella)
12 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled (I used a 2.8 oz bag of bacon pieces)
6 Potato Sandwich rolls
Salt/Pepper if desired

Directions:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
2. Spray 8×8 glass baking dish with cooking spray
3. Layer bacon and shredded cheese in baking dish
4. In separate bowl, crack and scramble the 8 eggs. Pour eggs over bacon and cheese in baking dish.
5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired. (I used salt and garlic powder)
6. Bake eggs in oven for about 25 minutes or until cooked through.
7. Remove from oven. Eggs will deflate slightly.
8. Slice into 6 equal sections.
9. Remove sliced sections carefully from baking dish and place inside potato roll.

I chose potato rolls for my sandwiches due to their thicker size. It complements the thick slice of bacon, egg, and cheese perfectly. I tried pretty flower shaped bread cutouts, but even though they looked cute, they were too flimsy for the hearty egg middle. Plus I think the potato roll will fare much better if you choose to freeze the sandwiches for grab and go breakfasts.

If you are going to freeze the sandwiches for later, wrap them individually in foil or freezer paper. Place all the wrapped sandwiches together in a gallon size freezer bag and freeze. To re-heat, un-wrap sandwich, place on plate and pop into the microwave for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through. If after 30 seconds the bun is getting too hot, remove it, continue to heat eggs until hot.

These sandwiches are a great addition to my new resolution of getting to work before the traffic. Now I can take my own breakfast sandwich and keep myself out of the work cafeteria (AKA cheesy grits and buttery biscuit heaven). So now that I have your attention with all this talk of bacon and buttery biscuits, head on over to check out more heavenly goodness being shared by all the lovely food blogs below. Get your bookmarking tool ready, because you are going to need it for sure!

    Egg sandwiches and potato rolls are a serious weakness of mine. I don’t know about freezing this, but I will make it as a regular breakfast. Great for a big group too!

      Yes, it’s great for a big group, and so easy! You could mix it up for any variety of ingredients as you want. Very versatile.

    What a great idea for busy days and I am sure they are MUCH healthier than cafeteria food. Bet you could even roll the egg up in a tortilla if you were so inclined. Delicious!

    These are a great idea for breakfast for my daughter. We have pancakes and waffles (homemade of course) in the freezer all the time for her but this would be a nice change!!

      My daughter also loves eggs. She was excited when I told her these were ready for her in the freezer if she wanted one before school this week. :-)

    I’ve always wanted to try making freezeable egg sandwiches but worry about re-heating the eggs. Do they get chewy?

    • karenhartzell says:

      I have not really noticed a chewy factor. I usually have so many ingredients loaded in with the eggs, everything reheats fine.

  5. I love the trick of cutting the shapes out with cookie cutters! The boys in this house would love these!

    Nothing is better than having a homemade breakfast. Being able to make some ahead and freeze it to have on hurried mornings is wonderful. Plus it is much better than any you would find at a fast food drive through (and quicker too).

    I really need to make a giant batch of these incredibly delicious yet easy sandwiches. All I have time for in the morning is a bowl of cereal, and sometimes that doesn’t even get eaten! I love the idea of freezing these – so convenient! Hells yeah your eggs look fluffy – totally brilliant of you to just mix it all together.
