Breakfast Sandwich (aka Sammie)
We have all had those days. Hit snooze a couple times and before you know it, we are rushing the kids out the door for school. Trying so hard not to be late to work and of course the teenagers want breakfast. The regular go to is always an option, but really, cereal again… how would you love to have a homemade breakfast Sammie that only takes less than 3 minutes. Those crazy teenagers will be happy and so will you.
These Sammies can be made way in advance and frozen. After making them just wrap them in aluminum foil and freeze. When ready to enjoy, just take out of the foil and wrap in a damp paper towel and heat in Mike (microwave) for one minute and forty-five seconds. As always folks, microwaves vary so adjust accordingly.
So without further ado…let’s get cooking.
You are going to need the following…
1 English Muffin
1 Sausage Patty (Bacon or Canadian Bacon can be used instead of Sausage)
1 Cheddar Cheese Slice
Butter (to spread on English muffin)
Mason Jar and Lid
Melt a little bit of butter and slice your English muffin. Slather the melted butter over the cut ends of your muffin and place in a heated skillet and cook until golden brown. Golden and brown… what amazing adjectives.
Heat your sausage until nice golden crusty bits appear, once again great adjectives. I really am killing it tonight. My 5th grade English teacher would be so proud.
Spray your mason jar lid and top with cooking spray and place in skillet heated to medium. Crack an egg into a small bowl and whisk. Pour your scrambled egg into the mason jar lid, sprinkle with S&P. Cover and cook for 4 minutes. Remember folks ovens vary so your oven will differ from mine. Honestly, my oven freaking sucks, so keep a eye on your egg.
Assemble your Sammie… place sausage, egg and then cheese on your muffin. To get your cheese nice and melted, wrap your Sammie in aluminum foil and place in your skillet over medium low heat for about 5 minutes.
Now this sounds like a lot of work for a Monday morning. I bet you were thinking… how is this faster than cereal? Here’s how. Make a whole bunch over the weekend and freeze them. Well, just see above and get those cranky teens out of bed and helping. With the kids help, we can crank out 50 in an hour. As always… Live, laugh, love & learn.
