Post image for Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches From Scratch

I've been on the hunt for a good grab and go recipe for a healthy breakfast for hubby to take to work. Since the invention of the Sausage Patties a couple weeks ago I knew there had to be something I could make. And when I say from scratch, these are really from scratch. I used homemade biscuits and my homemade sausage patties. Enjoy!

Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

What you need:


Cut up your onion. I used 1 small onion to make 10 sandwiches.

Cook up the sausage patties.

Fry up the egg with the onion. I put all the chopped onion in a large frying pan and then scrambled the eggs like I was cooking an omelet. To make it easier to flip (since I used 12 eggs) to cut it into smaller more manageable pieces before I flipped it.

Let everything cool down a bit before you put together the sandwiches. Top half a biscuit (Or make your biscuits smaller than normal like I did here and just use one smaller biscuit for the bottom and one for the top!) with part of the fried egg/onion.

Top that with a sausage patty and a slice of cheese.

And top that with another biscuit or half a biscuit.

Wrap in wax paper. That way you have something easy to warm it up it instead of making sure you have a plate!

And wrap that in aluminum foil. Place inside a large freezer bag and put in the freezer. You've got a grab and go, just needs warmed up, breakfast!

Mmmm, no fake cardboard tasting eggs here, these are farm fresh!

And nothing beats the flavor of homemade grass fed beef sausage on a fluffy homemade buttermilk biscuit!

For Christmas, hubby bought me the toaster that cooks the eggs, warms up the precooked meat and toasts your bread, English muffin, etc. At first I wasn’t too thrilled about it, but now I love it since my kids are able to make their own breakfasts before school. It takes 4 1/2 minutes per sandwich

Mandy: Microwave. Thats what the wax paper layer is for. No plate is even needed:)

Would you be referring to McDonald’s eggs? The ingredients in those are scary and I say they taste like a flip-flop, chewy and weird.

Haha yes! They really don’t taste anything like eggs!

Your breakfast sandwiches look heaarty and delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe with the Hearth and Soul Hop.

P.S. I am your latest follower.

Thanks for reminding me of this easy-freezy breakfast! I have 4 batches of biscuits ready to make this morning so your timing is perfect for me :).

I think I am going to have to make these for the hubby. He works 2 jobs and 1 of his jobs he works 12 hour shifts he always needs a quick breakfast to warm up and I think this will be just the thing to mix up his routine.

Excellent idea! I am not a bread person but thinking of using croissants instead. This is wonderful and cannot wait to do.

My husband and u are trying to be more frugal. He’s not working-just finishing up his degree(one more semester!!!!) and watching our baby, while I work full time. I JUST finished making these breakfast sandwiches and can’t wait to try them tomorrow!! 🙂

These are a great idea! How long do you heat then up for?


17 Merissa August 31, 2013 at 4:33 pm

It really depends on your microwave, I would say around a minute or two.


18 Kristi S. September 26, 2013 at 12:15 pm

I would thaw them at 30 or 40% for about a minute wrapped in a paper towel. Eggs notoriously do not reheat well in the microwave. You’ll need to split apart the sandwich, splay it apart, if you will, and microwave for about another minute or so (depending upon your microwave). Jimmy Dean makes some freezer sandwiches that we sometimes use on church day. Their instructions are not very accurate. It is my belief that microwaves are not healthy and kill nutrients, so we use it sparingly – something your readers may want to check. These take like 10 min. tops to make for our family of three when I make them on the stove and toast the english muffin.

Is there a way to heat it up in the oven? Any idea on that? I really try to avoid the microwave when possible. Thanks! 🙂


20 Merissa September 26, 2013 at 2:27 pm

I would just place on a baking sheet and heat until warm. The bread may dry out a little bit though.

If you leave it wrapped in the foil in the oven it should stay moist.
