Another great thing about making these easy breakfast sandwiches at home is the fact that they're super easy, tweens and teens can make them on their own (I'll share my trick for that below). You don't even really need to use the stove which means there's no danger in letting kids build these on their own!
Hearty Breakfast Ideas That Won't Break The Bank:
With the New Year comes promises of eating healthier and saving money–for most families. This is one way we do it with three big eaters int he house!
My two early-morning swimmers love coming home after practice and refueling with these delicious English muffin, egg and sausage sandwiches.
By buying the ingredients in bulk, we make these sandwiches for just .67 each!
Even if you purchase the items at the grocery store at a higher price than a warehouse store, you'll still spend a third or a quarter of what you'd pay eating out and they are still great for on the go!
Plus, since you're eating at home, you have control over the ingredients like sodium, etc. and will save calories as well as money compared to a restaurant.
What you'll need to make hearty breakfast sandwiches at home:
This recipe uses just four ingredients. They're simple and easy to get your hands on, there's no extra stress trying to find oddball ingredients at the grocery store!
You will need eggs, frozen sausage patties, english muffins, and salt / pepper to taste. That's all! I'll show you how we turn these quick, simple to prepare ingredients into the perfect breakfast for busy mornings!
How to make an easy hearty breakfast:
You'll love how simple it is to make this tasty breakfast sandwich. Preparing all the ingredients takes just a few minutes and within 5 you've got a hearty breakfast that is ready to enjoy!
Crack egg into microwave egg cooker, and scramble.
Season with salt and pepper.
Cook for 1 minute on High.
Layer sausage on paper towel or napkin. Cook for 2 minutes on 50% power in microwave.
Toast English muffin, then assemble sandwich and enjoy!
I haven't tried it but I would bet that if you have a toaster oven you could do the english muffins and the sausage at the same time. Just follow the instructions on the bag of sausage for different cooking methods!
Are these quick sausage and egg sandwiches?
The key to making these easy and fast is the microwave egg cooker I picked up at Amazon.
The sausage patties also cook quickly in the microwave. In about 4 minutes, my tweens and teen can make their own breakfast. I love that part!
And yes, these taste even better with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese, but we try not to do that too often since there's already fat in the sausage and the egg.
Along with a glass of milk and some fruit, this is a very filling breakfast for active tweens and teens.
