Easy baked egg breakfast sandwiches. Another frugal recipe that can be made ahead and frozen, then microwaved for fast breakfasts on the run. Try using other cheeses for extra flavor. I used Colby-Jack Slices. My boys loved this recipe!

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Pour the beaten eggs into the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until they set and are no longer runny, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove, allow to cool, and cut into 6 portions.
  3. Butter the cut sides of the croissants and place one portion of the cooked egg onto each croissant bottom. Top each sandwich with two slices of ham and a slice of Colby-Jack cheese. Place the croissant tops on top of the sandwiches; wrap each sandwich well with plastic wrap. Place the sandwiches onto a baking sheet; freeze until solid, about 3 hours. Store frozen.
  4. To reheat, cook a wrapped sandwich in a microwave on High until hot in the center, 1 to 2 minutes.

These were good, quick and easy to assemble. Unfortunately, I have found it difficult to reheat after taking out of the freezer. I have had to defrost for up to 2 minutes, then heat for 45 seconds, and then have to heat the egg an additional 25 seconds for it to even be warm. A lot of work to heat it up, but the taste is good. The tricky part is getting the whole sandwich warm without melting away all the cheese or causing the english muffin to become hard. Good luck!

I tried these and they came out perfect. I make a ton of these on english muffins. They reheat like a charm too.

These were great. The baked eggs can be cut to the perfect size. I had to cook my eggs a bit longer. I suggest adding salt and pepper to eggs before baking.
