I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe I should feel ashamed that I love my morning cup of coffee, but I’m not going to apologize. Caffeine is as much a part of my morning routine as kissing my kids!

Anyway, I live for finding breakfast shortcuts like make ahead breakfasts like blueberry baked oatmeal and crustless sausage quiche. Basically, anything to make breakfast meal prep as easy as possible.

But when I can make breakfast ahead of time and all anyone in the household needs to do is reheat it?? Well that is what I call a mom win.

And when we’re busy in the spring with planting and the fall with harvest? This DIY egg mcmuffin recipe is a lifesaver and can even go into a heated lunchbox.

Seriously, I wish my Grandma was here to have these creature comforts.

Where we live, there is no fast food. No Starbucks. No Dunkin. 

Go ahead and digest that for a second. No fast food. There is a Caseys but I try not to feed my family there daily. Occasional pizza, yes. Daily breakfast? No.

So basically make-ahead breakfasts are a mainstay and if they’re copycat recipes of a fast food chain, we’ll take it. .

Egg McMuffin Ingredients:

  • English muffins
  • Canadian bacon, ham or sausage patties
  • Cheese: American cheese, cheddar
  • Egg
  • My personal favorite is a homemade sausage mcmuffin but there are so many possibilities.

How to Make Homemade Egg McMuffins

Decide what you’d like on your breakfast sandwich. Ham? Sausage? Bacon? What’s your pleasure?

Then, pick your cheese. Note: you can’t do that at McDonalds. Just saying. So what’ll you have? American, Cheddar, Swiss, Colby jack, pepper jack – get as basic or fancy as you want.

Toast your English muffins in your toaster. By the way, our toaster is so old they don’t even make it anymore. If it died, I would totally buy this retro toaster, but our current one will. not. die….

Back to the muffins. If you’re feeling healthy, grab the whole wheat ones at the store. It will balance out the bacon, you know?

Aaaaannnnnd assemble. It’s that easy!

How to Freeze Homemade Egg McMuffins

From here, you can either serve your breakfast sandwiches, or you can wrap them in plastic wrap to freeze for later. Be sure to cool them first.

How to reheat egg muffin sandwiches

To reheat from the fridge: microwave for about 30 seconds, depending on the power of your microwave.

To reheat from frozen: Take the egg part out and microwave that first, then put the sandwich back together and heat just until the cheese starts to melt. If you have a “reheat” button on your microwave, all the better.

Just don’t throw the whole thing in and nuke it for three minutes because the muffin will come out like shoe leather, and we don’t want that.

So there you go! Make ahead breakfast sandwiches, aka homemade Egg McMuffin sandwiches. It will save you from hitting the drive thru in your pajamas on Saturday morning and that’s pretty priceless.

If I pre-bake the eggs in the whoopie pie pan but want to make a fresh sandwich in the morning do I just nuke the cooked egg when I toast the English muffin?

Susan, first of all, I love that you called it "nuke" which is what my dad says and it cracks me up! Yes, you can pop them in the microwave - 10-15 seconds should do for the reheat. Enjoy!
