  • Author: Julie Andrews
  • Prep Time: 20-25 mins
  • Cook Time: 35-40 mins
  • Total Time: 55-60 mins
  • Yield: 6 sandwiches 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Method: Oven, Toaster, Microwave


These breakfast sandwiches can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen and reheated for a quick and easy weekday breakfast.


  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ tsp. kosher or sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 6 whole grain English muffins
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 6 cooked turkey, chicken or veggie sausage patties
  • 6 slices cheese
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves (optional)
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 9×9 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt and black pepper until eggs are beaten. Pour the eggs into the prepared baking dish and bake in the middle rack for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set. Use a knife to cut them into 6 squares.
  3. Meanwhile, lay the English muffin halves or slices of bread out on a baking sheet. Brush the oil evenly on each. Bake on the top rack for 6-7 minutes or until toasted.
  4. Assemble the sandwiches by layering the egg squares, sausage patties and cheese inside the toasted English muffins or bread to make a sandwich. Wrap each sandwich in a slightly damp paper towel, then wrap in parchment or wax paper. Store in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or freezer for up to 2 months.
  5. To reheat, remove each sandwich from the parchment or wax paper, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on high 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
  6. Right before serving, fill the sandwich with baby spinach and avocado slices, if desired.


Cooking Tip: You can also fry the eggs in batches in a non-stick skillet on the stove.

Variation/Substitution Tips: 1) Swap out the sausage patties for slices of deli ham or cooked bacon. 2) For a vegetarian version, omit the meat.
