The Ultimate Cheap Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

Cheap breakfast sandwich recipe

I tend to get a little too excited about recipes from time to time. The kind of excited that makes me want to stop what I’m doing – no matter how important it might be – and start cooking right away.

This happened to me the other day, when I stumbled upon a brilliant idea from Finding Joy in My Kitchen. An English muffin breakfast sandwich that features egg patties that are made in a muffin tin. If these eggs were made in a skillet, this would be just another breakfast sandwich. But these egg patties are clean, compact, and perfectly portioned. This sandwich has the look and practicality of a fast-food breakfast sandwich – but without the preservatives and artificial flavors.

The cost: The other great thing about this sandwich is its cost. Each breakfast sandwich costs about 80 cents. When it comes to cheap recipes, it doesn’t get any better than this!

The Ultimate Cheap Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

Yield: 4 breakfast sandwiches

Prep Time: 10 min

Total Time: 20 min

These breakfast sandwiches can be frozen. Simply wrap cooled sandwiches tightly in plastic wrap. To reheat, unwrap sandwiches and microwave for a couple of minutes.

Ingredients:

For egg patties:
4 eggs
4 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped red pepper
1 tablespoon chopped bacon
Salt and pepper, to taste
Chopped chives

Other ingredients:
4 English muffins
1/4 cup shredded Mexican-blend cheese
Fresh spinach leaves

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease four individual muffin cups. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk together. Add onion, red pepper, bacon, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture evenly into muffin cups. Top with chives. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until eggs are set. Remove from oven and set aside.
Increase oven temperature to 425F. Cut English muffins in half and place on a flat baking sheet. Top each half with shredded cheese. Bake in oven for about five minutes, or until English muffins are toasted and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and place one egg patty on each sandwich. Top with spinach leaves. Serve with hot sauce, mayonnaise, or your choice of sauce.

    Amazing option for a breakfast.. eggs can give you much protein, bread is full of carbohydrates and bacon will definitely make it even more tasty. And the styling of the sandwich is great! Thumbs up
