I am not a morning person. Throughout the week, I begin my days very slowly and gracelessly by getting out of bed and channeling Helen Keller as I make my way to the coffee pot — both eyes crusted shut — trying not to step on a dog, cat or husband.
This is usually followed by at least 20 minutes of chugging coffee and reading Hollywood smut blogs. Next, just to stay well-rounded, I’ll skim CNN.com for stories about moose attacking snowmobiles or people trapping chupacabras. This schedule leaves very little time for making an even remotely healthy breakfast.
These sandwiches are so easy to make, take no time, freeze well and reheat in no time throughout the week. This leaves you plenty of time to read about Solange beating the crap out of Jay-Z in an elevator. Stars. They’re just like us! In her defense, maybe she was just hungry and didn’t have her morning coffee. I get that.
- 6 large eggs
- 6 slices turkey bacon
- 6 slices Swiss cheese
- 6 English muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet, cook the bacon to desired crispiness, cut in half crossways and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with salt and pepper. Pour evenly into 6 greased 4″ oven-safe ramekins. You can also use oversized muffin tins for this. You just want the diameter of the egg to be similar to that of the English muffins.
Bake eggs until the centers are set, about 15 minutes, rotating pan halfway though. Remove from oven, run a knife around the edge of the eggs. Assemble sandwiches by layering cheese bacon and egg.
If serving immediately, wrap sandwiches individually in foil and place in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Or these can be frozen* for up to one week by wrapping tightly in Press’n’Seal or plastic bags.
*To prepare from frozen, you can place in microwave at 50% power for one minute. Remove from microwave and take off plastic wrap and wrap loosely in a power towel and cook for an additional minute at full power. If cooking from frozen in the oven, remove plastic and follow the directions above and increase cooking time to 20-25 minutes. Cooking times may vary.
