Okay, does anyone not like sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwiches?? They are delicious, easy to eat on the go, they cover multiple food groups, and you can customize them any way you like! I don’t even discriminate; they can be on a bagel, a biscuit, whatever.
As much as I love a full spread breakfast, I tend to only reserve those for the weekends. That way, I have time to do dishes and savor my plate. During the weekdays, I reach into my freezer for an SEC or BEC sandwich as I’m on my way to work. Anything that’s microwavable and filling is a win for me.
These sausage, egg, and cheese sandwiches are super easy to make and scale. They can be customized to your tastes, and it saves you so much $$ and time (as opposed to going to the drive-thru.) You also get a balanced meal (protein, healthy fats, grains) in a handheld package.
My favorite combo is chicken sausage patties, an over-medium fried egg, and pepper jack cheese for a bit of a kick! Assembling this on a whole-grain English muffin, and you’ll be sure to feel good about what you’re eating. I’ve also included freezing and reheating instructions in the recipe card. Make some extras and store them in the freezer until you’re ready to eat!
Let me know: what other easy breakfasts do you like to grab before work?
