Ingredients for Meal Prep Breakfast Sandwiches

You might already have everything you need to make these sandwiches on hand. Here are the key ingredients:

  • English muffins. I like to use sprouted or whole wheat muffins for added fiber.
  • Spinach. Feel free to use kale or another green to make your omelet.
  • Eggs
  • Cream cheese. I like to use dairy-free cream cheese from Kite Hill, but any kind will work.
  • Cheese. You can use dairy-free cheese if necessary or skip the cheese altogether.
  • Butter or olive oil to add moisture to the English muffin.

Prepping Egg and Cheese Sandwiches Ahead

To make these sandwiches and pack them for meal prep, you can do most of the work ahead of time. Then all you need to do for breakfast is pop a sandwich into the microwave until the eggs are warm again.

Tips for make-ahead breakfast sandwiches:

  • toast your English muffin first to prevent sogginess
  • after you make the spinach omelet, you can slice it into perfect rounds to fill your sandwich (note: this step is optional if you don't have a round cutter or you could also use a wide glass)
  • to package them, wrap each sandwich in plastic or reusable cling wrap
  • pop them into an airtight bag or container

Keep your meal prep sandwiches in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

And that's it! They're super simple and honestly make having a healthy breakfast SO much easier.

Additional Flavoring Ideas

Again, these meal prep breakfast sandwiches can be customized with whatever veggies you have on hand. Feel free to mix up the flavors and add-ins to your heart's content! Here are some easy swaps or additions to the recipe:

  • Add other veggies like diced bell peppers, mushrooms, or onions to the omelet
  • Swap the spinach with another green like kale, swiss chard or collards
  • Add a dash of soy sauce or tamari to the egg mixture
  • Spread spicy mayo on the toasted English muffin
  • Use a croissant or bagel instead of an English muffin
  • Add pesto or another sauce to the eggs or on the English muffin

And if you're a meat-eater, feel free to add some sausage, bacon, or ham to give yourself an extra dose of protein!

Can I Freeze Egg Breakfast Sandwiches?

Yes! You can absolutely freeze egg breakfast sandwiches.

To freeze these sandwiches for meal prep:

  1. let them cool fully
  2. wrap the sandwiches in several layers of plastic wrap
  3. place them in an airtight bag or container in the freezer

To reheat healthy breakfast sandwiches:

  • take one out the night before and defrost it in the fridge
  • in the morning, stick the sandwich in the microwave or toaster oven for a minute or two to heat through

And from there…just enjoy!

Notes

Want to make more than just two sandwiches?
Scale up the recipe ingredients accordingly. When ready to cook, simply spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Heat the oven to 375ºF and fill the muffin tins with your egg mixture (aim for 2 eggs per tin). Cook for 15 - 20 minutes until the eggs have set.
Serve the same way you see here and enjoy!
