The Year of No-Fuss Cooking {Breakfast Sandwiches}

This post will wrap up the No-Fuss Cooking Series. Don't worry, I guarantee that there will be plenty more slow cooker freezer meals featured on the blog, as I tend to be all about simplicity. If you have been following the series, you may have noticed how many different meals are in the picture, and also noticed that I have not posted every recipe. The Peking Chicken, while easy, was not a favorite. I most likely will not make it again. However, if you want to test it out for yourself, you can visit this blog.  Also, here is the Monster Cookie recipe if you would like - they freeze wonderfully!

Now, on to the Breakfast Sandwiches! We have a pretty set morning routine here in our busy house. We both need a good, solid breakfast to get through our day. These breakfast sandwiches were a lifesaver on those mornings that we were moving slow, but needed more than a bowl of cereal! Mister got a Breakfast Sandwich Maker for Christmas that is even quicker than the frozen sandwiches, and probably a bit better! I have never been one for speciality appliances like this, but we have thoroughly enjoyed it! They even make a *double* sandwich maker if you want to cut even more time. 

But, really... our freezer breakfast sandwiches! The key about this recipe is making enough to feed an army at one time and then prep to eat individually. The hardest part about the recipe is cleaning out the muffin tin after baking the eggs (you'll see), but if you spray it with non-stick spray, you should be good!


12 English muffins
1 dozen large eggs
12 slices canadian bacon
12 slices cheddar cheese (or cheese of choice)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray, and crack one egg in each compartment. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until desired doneness. 

While eggs are cooling, slice English muffins in half, and top one side with canadian bacon and cheese. Add the egg, then the other half of the muffin. Wrap each sandwich tightly in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer bag.

To cook: Microwave for about 3 minutes, or put in the toaster oven for 5 - 10 minutes. If you are proactive, put desired number of sandwiches in the fridge the night before - this cuts down baking time.
