CHEAP, FAST & EASY - Egg White Breakfast Sandwich

Submitted by: WISHICOULDFLY

Introduction

I need protein in the morning or I'm starving before 10! I like to sleep until the last minute possible, but need breakfast on the go. I was buying those Jimmie Dean Egg White sandwiches, when I thought "I can make these MYSELF, and CHEAPER too!" I cook up a dozen egg whites at a time - the LAZY way--I spray a silicone muffin pan with non-stick spray and place 1 egg white in each muffin cup and bake at 400 until done (about 15 minutes). I let them cool and freeze them in ziplocs. This is a great way to use up your eggs before they get old and saves me time in the morning. By the time I toast my multigrain thin (or you can use a light english muffin) the egg white are heated up in the microwave (about 30 seconds). I slap them on my toasted mutigrain thins with a slice of cheese and head out the door! I need protein in the morning or I'm starving before 10!

    Hey, I had a question about this. I know it's super quick and easy already, I'm more just curious :P

    How do you think the sandwich would handle being put together (english muffin + cheese + egg) and then frozen? I was wondering because that's how a lot of the sandwiches that you buy are set up - 1/9/12

    I tried this and I did not care for it. It tastes fresher and really doe not take very long to toast a muffin or sandwich thin and then slap on the cheese and egg white.

    I add chopped broccoli or baby spinach. Sometimes I add chopped up turkey or canadian bacon. Its like having mini quiches.
    I never thought of freezing them in batches before. Thanks for the idea. Now I can make & save even more! - 1/2/12

    I was just looking for something that was freezable and didn't require microwave cooking as we don't have a kitchen but the microwave is in the office so not wanting to stink up the place- can give this a quick warm up and hey presto- an egg roll- minus all the calories and cost! - 9/14/10

  • I couldn't figure out how to answer the lady who asked if you couldn't put the sliced cheese with the sandwich before freezing. It definitely would be worth a try. The cheese *might* crumble, but if so, we live and learn. I think it's WAT (worth a try) - 10/14/13

    A good idea for omnivores (folks that eat meat and veggies), but this is not vegetarian, unless you're lacto-ovo (milk and eggs only). - 10/18/09
