Faux-McGriddles for the Freezer!

  
I’m incredibly lucky and grateful to have the best sister in the world. A few weeks ago she spend the afternoon and evening with me and the goober-butt to start stocking the freezer for when the twins arrive. We cranked out a crap ton of meatloaf, lasagna, and fried chicken, my comfort food favorites, and then it was all wrapped in Saran Wrap in either one or two servings.  

To see my freezer full of such tasty nums is definitely one less worry. I’m still planning on a few freezer crock pot meals, which is was what I did last pregnancy. However, we only really liked a few of the ten recipes we had tried (very disappointing, I might add), so this time around I am only making the ones we loved (salsa chicken, chili, Italian beef). 

One thing not covered by these is breakfast. 

Before I go any further, I have a confession to make. A couple of months ago, when I woke up with an intense craving for hash browns, I made my husband take me to McDonalds. He decided to try the sausage McGriddle. Of course, I had a bite, and it was instant love. Who can resist that salty and sweet combination? 

So when I came across a pin on Pinterest for freezer egg sandwiches I thought about turning them not McGriddles. 

The result? Well, my taste buds are still delighted three days later. Here is my recipe!

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 12 English muffins
  • 12 Slices of American cheese
  • 12 Eggs
  • 12 Pre-Cooked Sausage Patties
  • Pepper, Chives
  • Butter, Maple Syrup
  • Cooking Spray

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Spray the bottom and sides of a silicone muffin tin with cooking spray.
  3. Crack one egg inside each compartment. Sprinkle pepper and chives on top of each.
  4. Cook the eggs for 15-20 minutes until the eggs are cooked through. While eggs are cooking, lightly toast all the English muffins.
  5. Butter the bottom of each muffin
  6. Add a generous dollop of maple syrup to the top of each muffin and smooth it in with a knife
  7. Place a slice of cheese on the bottom of each muffin (I used 3/4 of a slice rather than a whole slice)
  8. Use a spoon to help pop out each cooked egg and add it on top of the cheese. Add sausage patty to each and close each sandwich.
  9. Wrap each cooled sandwich in plastic wrap and store in the freezer in a gallon-size bag.

Microwave each sandwich (thawed overnight) for 45-60 seconds until warm. Num it up.

So tasty! 😄
