Healthy Make ahead Breakfast Sammies TO GO

Have you ever rushed out the door  during the week en route to work and skipped breakfast? And as your driving you pass Wawa and think to stop for their sausage egg and cheese sizzlie because your stomach is grumbling? Or as your ordering your morning Dunkin Donuts coffee your salvating at the pictures of the donuts, muffins, and Big N Toasted Texas toast breakfast sandwich? Been there, done that.

Problem now solved!

Last week, I was on Pinterest and stumbled across Undressed Skeleton's blog where she makes ready to go homemade egg sandwhiches which are A. healthy and B. inexpensive. The only con, is that you need to put some time aside on the weekend to make, bake, and assemble. Well, I attempted it this weekend and it was super simple and super delicious! I watched TV as I assembled these bad boys and there are soooooo good! I used a few different brands and tried a few different cheeses to spice it up a little bit to! And now I have (5) sammies sitting in my freezer as we speak ready for my early morning rush to work! Bring it on Monday!

Total time making/baking/assembling: 30 minutes or a full episode of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives
Total cost per sammie: $1.70
Makes 6 servings ( 1 sammie per serving)
About 260 calories, 5 g of fat, 31 g Carbs, 5 g fiber, 22 g protein

  • (5) egg whites and (1) whole egg
  • (6) Thomas English Muffins (high fiber)
  • Turkey Bacon
  • 6 slices low fat cheese ( I used sharp cheddar, provolone, and mozzarella)
  • tomato, sliced and diced
  • salt and pepper
  • dried oregano
  • dried basil
*get creative and try diced bell peppers, spinach, onions., etc... 


  1. Preheat oven to 350, and line cookie sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Lay out 6 slices of turkey bacon and put in oven on middle rack for 6 minutes
  2. scramble the eggs, add tomatoes, oregano/basil, salt and pepper and pour into 6 greased muffin tin cups
  3. when the oven dings after 6 minutes, move the bacon one level down and slide muffin tray on to middle rack
  4. plug in your panini maker or grill and slice your english muffins
  5. slice your cheese and place on bottom english muffin.
  6. When the oven dings again, remove the bacon, place on paper towels to soak up extra grease and leave eggs in for 3 more minutes
  7. once bacon is cool to handle, cut each slice in half and place two pieces on top of the cheese.
  8. after 3 minutes take out the eggs and let cool. Once cool enough to handle, take a spoon and take each egg cup out and put on top half of english muffin. 
  9. place the sammies on the panini  grill and press down so egg is the size of the english muffin and let grill for 3-4 minutes or until golden
  10. remove from panini maker and cool
  11. place on wax paper ( or place in ziplock bags), wrap them up, and assemble with tape or stickers (I had some Trader Joe stickers in my drawers, pick them up while your at the store, they are free too!) which ever you have handy and place in your freezer for the work week ahead.
  12. when your ready to eat, place in microwave for 2-3 minutes ( depends on your your microwave), grab some fruit and your ready to start the day with high protein, fruits, and veggies!
