Protein packed and just 320 calories each, these satisfying breakfast sandwiches are ideal for making-ahead, freezing, and popping in the microwave whenever the mood strikes.
Today I’m excited to share one of my meal prepping favorites, that only uses four ingredients! These Egg, Ham, and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches are perfect for making ahead and keeping in the freezer to eat at your leisure, or to make in bulk for a party or gathering over breakfast. Delicious any time of year, but ideal with ،less spiral ham, they double as a great way to use up any leftover ham during the ،lidays! A hit with my husband and my kids, your family will love these breakfast sandwiches, too.
- English ،ins: The perfect size for a breakfast sandwich, and they’re s،y enough to support all the layers inside.
- Eggs: An affordable, accessible, and delicious source of protein.
- Ham: Packed with protein and flavor, you can use Ca،ian bacon, deli meat, or leftover dinner ham!
- Cheese: I love to use a nice sharp cheddar, but you could experiment with any kind you have! Spice it up a bit with some pepper jack or Colby jack, or you can stick with the cl،ic American cheese.
How to Make Egg, Ham, and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches
You’ll s، your egg, ham, and cheese breakfast sandwiches by preheating your oven to 350. Take an empty ،in tin and spray each ،le with some cooking spray, then ، one egg into each. Break the yolk and then cook for about 18 minutes until the egg whites are firm.
While the eggs are cooking, prepare the rest of your sandwiches. Lay out the halved English ،ins and begin layering with the cheese and ham.
When the eggs are done cooking, add them to each sandwich. If you wanted to cook all of the sandwiches in bulk, here is where you could then toss all into the oven at once until the cheese is melted and ،in is toasted!
Top each breakfast sandwich with the ،in top, and you’re ready to finish your meal prep.
Wrap each individual sandwich in either tin foil or parchment paper.
Then place them all in a freezer safe bag and label them. Toss in the freezer for up to three months or in the fridge for a week!
When ready to eat, just unwrap one sandwich and heat in the microwave for 60 seconds. Serve, and enjoy your egg, ham, and cheese breakfast sandwiches!
