Tips for Success:

  • Use English muffins that are slightly toasted for a crunchy sandwich.

  • For extra flavor, add sliced tomatoes or avocado slices just before serving!
  • You can use any type of cheese – from classic American Cheese slices to sharp cheddar or Gruyere cheese!
  • For an eggless version of this breakfast sandwich, top the English muffins with tomato sauce and melted mozzarella cheese for an Italian-style English muffin pizza sandwich!

How to Store and Reheat Your Breakfast Sandwich:

Refrigerator: Store assembled sandwiches in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Freezer: Wrap assembled and cooled sandwiches in several layers of foil and freeze for up to 2 months.

Reheat: Wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave on half power until heated through.

Are English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches Freezer Friendly?

Yes, these sandwiches are freezer friendly. They can be easily made ahead of time and frozen for later use. The sandwiches stay fresh and delicious when thawed or reheated!

They make the perfect meal option for breakfast or lunch whether you are eating on the go, stocking up your freezer, or having a weekend breakfast with friends and family.

What Type of Cheese is Best to Use?

The best type of cheese for these breakfast sandwiches is either cheddar, American, or mozzarella. These cheeses melt nicely and add a creamy texture to your sandwich.

Other cheeses such as Swiss, provolone, and Colby can also be used depending on personal preference. Feel free to experiment with different types of cheese to find the combination you love best!

Are There Any Variations of English Muffins that Work Better Than Others?

Yes, different English muffins can work better than others. English muffins with a denser texture, such as whole wheat, are ideal for breakfast sandwiches since they hold up well when toasted and layered with fillings.

Light and fluffy English muffins tend to fall apart more easily when filled with toppings like eggs and cheese. Additionally, varieties like sourdough or multigrain have an added flavor dimension that can enhance the overall taste of the sandwich.
