Loaded Breakfast Sandwiches
I have eaten a version of this sandwich for the better part of 30 years! When I was growing up, my dad would make this breakfast egg sandwich recipe for me in the morning before a lacrosse game in high school.
These sandwiches are quick and easy to make, and they have protein-rich ingredients that stay with you all day long.
I love the cheesy goodness in this breakfast sandwich on top of the egg and bacon nestled between the warm English muffin. Add in the veggies, and you have the BEST loaded breakfast sandwich any day of the week! And don’t even get me started on the runny yolk!
Is an egg sandwich healthy for breakfast?
While an egg sandwich is a healthier choice than say pancakes loaded with whipped cream. However, breakfast sandwich recipes are a great source of protein and veggies. You can also substitute the English Muffin for a wheat English Muffin for an even healthier option.
How do I season my eggs?
All you need to do is add some salt and pepper after you cook the egg to add a little flavor to it.
How do you spice up your fried eggs?
A quick and easy way to add some spice to your eggs is to add a little cumin or paprika to your egg. Do this when you are adding some salt and pepper, and this will add just the little kick you are looking for.
How do you freeze breakfast sandwiches?
Cool the assembled sandwiches to room temperature and then wrap them in foil. Place the foil-wrapped sandwiches inside a freezer-safe Ziploc bag and freeze for up to 4 months.
Preheat the oven or a toaster oven to 350°F. Reheat in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through.
How to make this Loaded Breakfast Sandwich Recipe:
STEP ONE: First, toast the English muffins, and butter the sides of the. Then spread the smashed avocado evenly over half of the English muffins and set aside.
STEP TWO: Next, cook bacon in a large skillet for 7-9 minutes. After the bacon is done cooking, break each slice in half.
STEPS THREE AND FOUR: Using one tablespoon of bacon fat from the skillet, add the eggs and cover and cook for one minute. Then top each egg with bacon and cheese. Let the egg sit until the cheese is melted and the egg whites are cooked through.
STEP FIVE: Finally, place one bacon and cheese-topped egg on each of the English muffins with smashed avocado. Add the spinach to each and top with tomato slices and muffin tops. Serve and enjoy.
- This breakfast sandwich recipe is entirely customizable. Just add the ingredients you love. Ham, Canadian bacon, and sausage patties would all be delicious on this breakfast sandwich.
- I like to cook up a dozen of these at a time and freeze them for a leisurely weekday breakfast. To do this, follow the recipe below, but I leave off the spinach and tomato (spinach and tomato slices just don’t freeze and heat well). I then wrap them individually in foil and freeze. When it’s time to heat them, I remove the foil and cook for 1 -2 minutes on high in the microwave.
- NOTE: all microwaves are different, so heating instructions will vary!
- You can also reheat the sandwiches in their foil in a 350 degree F oven for 15-20 minutes.
