Easy Breakfast Sandwiches

MJ has declared this is her breakfast for the rest of the week!

I've had a couple times when MJ and I were in Wawa paying for gas and sometimes getting a sandwich.  The hardest meal of the day for us to eat out is breakfast.  If we have to go for something fast for breakfast we stop at Wawa and order a ham and bacon shorti and then split it.  I know if sounds horrible that we go for a ham and bacon sandwich but it's really the only thing we found that we can eat.  I've gone through some of the fast food websites and found that the only thing safe at Burger King are the french toast sticks and tater tots and those are sooo greasy!  McDonalds has it where you can put the sandwich together and as long as you don't add cheese it's supposed to be dairy-free.  I really doubt it because I tried it once, and only once and spent the rest of the day feeling sick.  Well recently MJ saw the breakfast sandwiches they had pictures of on the touch screen ordering kiosk and asked why she couldn't have one of those sandwiches or why she couldn't have a sausage muffin at McDonalds anymore.  It sucked letting her know that all of them had dairy in them and would make her sick.  I'm used to it but I feel so bad for her.  Of course her reply was the same one I say in my head but not out loud around her, "IT'S NO FAIR!!!"

I thought why can't we do something ourselves.  Then I forgot about it for a while until I saw something on Snapguide.  The posters recipe had cheese, sausage and regular English muffins which would not be safe.  We removed the cheese, changed out the sausage (160 cal) for Canadian bacon (60 cal), and changed the English muffin to a vegan whole wheat English muffin.  We made a delicious and fast breakfast for those days when she just can't seem to get going in the morning like Monday mornings.  While we were wrapping them she made sure everyone in the house understood that they were her's only!

I hope you enjoy and personalize to your own taste these wonderful breakfast sandwiches!

Easy Breakfast Sandwiches
Makes 6 servings

6 slices Canadian Bacon
6 large eggs (to up the protein use enough egg whites for 2 eggs aroun 10 g protein)
6 Rudi's Whole Grain Whole Wheat English Muffins, slightly thawed.  I left them on the counter for about an hour.  Made them easier to open.)

1.  Preheat oven to 375*.  Spray either 6 ramekins or 6 cups on a muffin pan (couldn't find my ramekins so had to resort to the muffin pan) and put aside.
We sprayed the muffin cups but she wasn't happy
because it looked like all of the cooking spray was on
the bottom so she felt she had to use the pastry brush to fix it.

2.  Crack an egg into a bowl and just break the yolk.  Pour in to the prepared ramekin/muffin cup.  Do that for each egg.

Here's what one egg looks like.

My assistant told me I had to take a picture of one egg and then
when the pan had all 6 eggs in it.
3.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until eggs are cooked and no longer runny.

4.  While eggs are cooking toast the English Muffins and put the Canadian Bacon on one half of each.

 5.  Once eggs are done let cool for about 15 minutes.  Then put together the sandwiches layering it with English muffin, Canadian bacon, egg, and the English muffin.

6.  Wrap each of the sandwiches with wax paper and put each wrapped sandwich into a freezer bag and freeze.  To reheat put in microwave and reheat for 1-2 minutes or until hot.
