Road Trip Breakfast

Road trip breakfasts are one of my favorite things in life. Something about waking up early and having breakfast in the car makes me happy. To be more specific, it’s McDonald’s Egg White Delight McMuffins that really hold the special place in my heart. I like McMuffins at any time, but in a car in the morning, they’re elevated to a new level.

A couple of months ago my husband and I drove to South Carolina for my friend Elizabeth’s wedding. Days before the trip I started thinking about how excited I was to get my McMuffin. We left on a Thursday night, and due to timing and McDonald’s locations, I wasn’t able to get my road trip McMuffin until Sunday. As I blissfully ate my breakfast sandwich in the car on Sunday morning, I thought, “I really should just make these to eat on the way to work….”

Healthier Breakfast Sandwiches

As I was thinking about making my own McMuffins, I remembered that when I was pregnant with each of my kids, I used to purchase pre-made frozen breakfast sandwiches. Those things were delicious. But, they are not the healthiest of breakfast options. I decided there was no reason I couldn’t make my own, healthier version of a breakfast sandwich.

Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

These Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches come together quickly and heat up in about 2 minutes. They’re perfect for a busy weekday morning, or really any morning. Here are a few trips to help ensure success:

  • Any English muffin works for this recipe, but I prefer original or honey wheat.
  • I have cooked the eggs in a 9×9 baking pan as well as muffin tins.
    • The 9×9 pan gives a thinner egg that more fully covers the muffin, but you loose some egg due to having to cut it out. If you care about the cosmetics of your breakfast sandwich, use this method.
    • With a muffin tin you get to use all of the egg, but it won’t fully cover the muffin. This is quicker, easier, and my preferred method.
  • When making the sausage patties, keep in mind that they will cook down by about 1/3. So, make the raw patty larger than you want the end product to be.

  • In a small bowl, stir together baking soda and water until baking soda has dissolved in water. Add turkey and stir until well combined. Let sit for 20 minutes.
  • Stir in maple syrup, oregano, garlic powder, thyme, salt, and pepper.
  • Form sausage into 8 patties that are about 4 to 5 inches in diameter and about 1/3 inch in thickness Set patties on parchment or wax paper. NOTE: You only need 6 patties for this recipe, so you can freeze the additional 2 patties for latter.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties to skillet. Cook for about 2.5 minutes a side, or until side has browned well. Then flip and brown other side of patty. NOTE: If you cannot fit all the patties on the skillet at once, you will need to add oil before the next addition.
  • Set patties aside, but leave grease in pan to cook eggs.

Eggs

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9 baking pan or a muffin tin pan with baking spray.
  • Place the skillet you used for the sausage over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper. Saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  • Place vegetables in a small bowl and stir together with eggs, salt, and pepper.
  • Cooking and cutting: For 9×9 baking pan: Pour eggs into greased pan. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until eggs are cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes. Flip onto cutting board. Use 3" biscuit cutter to cut out egg rounds. For muffin pan: Pour eggs evenly among 6 greased muffin tin wells. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until eggs are cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing.

Assembly and Serving

  • Cut English muffins in half horizontally. Fill each muffin with a sausage patty, baked egg, and slice of cheddar cheese.
