Healthy Meal Prep Egg, Sausage and Cheese Sandwiches
Skip the drive-through and meal prep breakfast
When I was working full time in an office, I would always try my best to meal prep breakfast so that I wouldn’t have an excuse to go through the drive-through, or worse, skip breakfast all together. I love making overnight oats for this same reason, but I wanted to switch it up and have something new and exciting waiting for me in the mornings.
That’s when these sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches were created. They are made with simple and healthy ingredients, come together very easily, and taste amazing warmed up all week long. These can also be frozen and warmed up in the microwave all month long!
Ingredients in breakfast sandwiches
These Healthy Meal Prep Egg and Sausage Sandwiches are 100% customizable as well. This recipe is made with chicken sausage, but feel free to switch it up and use ham, turkey sausage or even bacon. Grab the ingredients below and let’s get cooking:
chicken sausage– I used chicken sausage from trader joe’s which is really clean. It doesn’t have any preservatives or funky ingredients.
eggs– cage free, or free range eggs are best
red bell pepper– diced red pepper for some flavor and crunch, feel free to use any colored bell pepper that you prefer!
yellow onion– 1/2 diced yellow onion, this adds a nice flavor and crunch to the egg sandwiches.
pepper jack cheese– we like things a little spicy over here, so pepper jack is my preferred cheese. However, you cam also use cheddar.
english muffins– I personally like Food For Life or Dave’s Killer Bread.
salt and pepper
How to store these breakfast sandwiches
There are two ways that you can store and enjoy these breakfast egg and cheese sandwiches.
Serving now: Toast the english muffin, then assemble the sandwich by adding on the egg slice, followed by the pepper jack cheese and then the top slice of the english muffin and enjoy immediately.
Meal Prep: Do not toast the english muffin. Instead, assemble the sandwich as stated above. Then, wrap the sandwich in foil or plastic wrap and store in the fridge or freezer.
To reheat: If reheating from the fridge, unwrap the english muffin and lightly wrap it in a paper towel and heat in the microwave for 60-90 seconds or until heated all the way through. If reheating from frozen, repeat the above but instead microwave for 2-3 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until heated all the way through.
