This post is putting my secret love of processed American cheese and my not-secret love of my husband on display. I’m not going to use up all my space defending American cheese, I’m just going to give you one word and we can move on: MELTY. Are you with me?
In the mornings, my supply of energy and motivation in the kitchen is pretty limited but it’s still important to show Joey some TLC with a decent breakfast. Meal Prep Breakfast Sandwiches are my love language…? Yeah, I think that’s what I’m saying.
Less than an hour’s worth of work toasting English muffins and frying eggs earns you a week’s worth of warm, cheesy breakfasts. And, puts a smile on husbo’s face. It’s a win-win guys.
These sandwiches are pretty simple: English muffin, fried egg, a splash of hot sauce, Canadian bacon, and American cheese. But, feel free to use whatever breakfast things you like: sausage, bacon, a little spinach, whatever makes you happy. This recipe makes 9 sandwiches because the pack of english muffins I got a Costco came with 9. Any quantity will work.
Once you’ve made and assembled your sammies, let them cool completely, wrap them individually in plastic wrap, then freeze in a freezer-safe food storage bag. In the morning, unwrap a sandwich, microwave it for 1 minute and you’re good to go. Hot and hearty, and a great way to start your day!

Meal Prep Breakfast Sandwiches
Less than an hour’s worth of prep, toasting English muffins and frying eggs earns you a week’s worth of warm, cheesy breakfasts.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 35 minutes plus cooling time
- Yield: 9 sandwiches 1x
- Category: Breakfast
- Method: Meal prep
- Cuisine: American
- 9 English muffins
- 9 slices of Canadian bacon
- 2 TBS butter
- 9 eggs
- salt and pepper
- hot sauce
- 9 slices of American cheese
- Split the English muffins and toast them in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, flipping them over halfway through.
- Meanwhile, brown the Canadian bacon in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Remove to a plate and wipe out the skillet with damp paper towels.
- Lower the heat to medium and melt 1 TBS of butter in the skillet. Pour half the eggs into the skillet (I like to crack them in a bowl first and pour them out one by one). Break the yolks if you like, season with salt and pepper and let cook for a couple minutes before flipping. Season the second side with salt and pepper and a few dashes of hot sauce. Top each egg with a slice of Canadian bacon and a slice of cheese, turn the heat to low, cover the skillet and let the cheese melt. Use a spatula to transfer the eggs to the toasted english muffins. Repeat with the remaining butter, eggs, etc.
- Let sandwiches cool completely. Then, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and freeze them in a freezer-safe food storage bag. To reheat, unwrap and microwave one sandwich straight from the freezer for 1 minute.
