Frozen breakfast sandwiches made with egg, sausage, and cheese on an English muffin make a great grab-and-go breakfast for a busy morning. They also would be a great choice for a large group holiday breakfast if you reheat a big pan of them in the oven to serve all at once.

A pile of sausage and egg english muffin sandwiches are ready to be wrapped for the freezer.

I absolutely love a good breakfast sandwich and this recipe is my new favorite because it makes such a big batch for the freezer.

I prepped these frozen breakfast sandwiches before the school year started so my kids would have a protein-heavy option for busy days.

But we all loved the sandwiches so much that I can't help but think they'd make an amazing easy breakfast to serve for a big group like during the holiday season when you have family in town visiting.

You could prep and freeze the sandwiches and just reheat them all at once in the oven for a delicious brunch for a crowd.

Why This is the Best Recipe

I am a huge lover of breakfast sandwiches, they are one of my personal favorites. I think this is the best frozen breakfast sandwiches recipe because:

  1. Better than McDonald's: As a life-long lover of the sausage McMuffin, I firmly declare these to be wayyyyy more delicious.
  2. Big Batch for Freezer: These freezer-friendly breakfast sandwiches are perfect for making in a big batch for easy school morning breakfasts. They definitely help us avoid the drive-thru.
  3. Easy to Customize: Got one kid that only likes egg? Another kid that only likes sausage? You can mix and match the toppings for perfect breakfast sandwiches. Freeze them in separate bags so everyone knows where to find their favorites.


While there are lots of ways to mix and match these frozen breakfast sandwiches, here are the basic ingredients you will need, just choose one between the sausage and bacon:

Bake the Eggs

For these easy frozen breakfast sandwiches I used one batch of my baked egg patties.

You can find full step-by-step instructions and photos along with fun seasoning variations at this baked egg patties recipe post but I also included the basics you need in the recipe card below.

The eggs have been baked and are a solid patty on the bottom of the baking pan.

Cut the pan of baked eggs into 12 squares and set aside.

Choose Your Meat

If you want to have a meat on your breakfast sandwich, you'll want to prepare the turkey breakfast sausage or baked peppered bacon at this time.

In the recipe card below, I wrote the instructions for using the ground turkey sausage but that is a very simple swap to make for the bacon if you prefer.

Broil the English Muffins

The key to the most delicious frozen breakfast sandwich is to make sure you toast the english muffins first.

Rather than running them one at a time through your toaster, it is so much faster to broil them in the oven on a large baking sheet.

I was able to do 6 english muffins in less than a minute in my oven:

A baking pan is filled with open face English muffins fresh from the broiler. They have golden brown toasted tops.

Assemble the Breakfast Sandwiches

With all the elements of the breakfast sandwiches prepped, it is now time for a quick asssembly:

Place one egg patty on each english muffin.

Top with a sausage patty or strip of bacon. If you use the bacon, you may want to break it in half so it stays inside the sandwich and doesn't hang out the edges.

Top with a slice of cheese and finish the sandwich.

The step by step photos show how to assemble the english muffin, egg, turkey sausage, and cheddar english muffin breakfast sausages.

Freezing Instructions

To freeze the breakfast sandwiches, you'll want to wrap each one individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil for the freezer.

This keeps the sandwiches intact and makes it easy to grab just one to heat up for breakfast.

All the breakfast sandwiches have been wrapped in plastic wrap and are ready for the freezer.

Tuck the sandwiches into a freezer bag or container to keep them neat and tidy in your freezer.

They will keep for up to 3 months.

How to Reheat a Frozen Breakfast Sandwich

For best results, thaw the frozen breakfast sandwiches in the fridge overnight and then simply reheat them in the microwave.

Be sure to remove the individual wrapping and then just cook them on HIGH heat for 1 minute.

Serving Suggestions

The pile of sandwiches is ready to be put in the freezer.

I serve these easy breakfast sandwiches to my kids along with a simple piece of fresh fruit or berries for a delicious school morning breakfast in a pinch.

They also would make an excellent breakfast for a crowd at an open house or holiday brunch.

You could reheat big pans of them in the oven so that they are all hot and ready to be served at the same time.

TOTAL TIME 40 minutes
PREP TIME 20 minutes
COOK TIME 20 minutes
YIELD 12 servings


For the Eggs

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

For the Sausage

  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 tbsp breakfast sausage seasoning See Notes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

For the Breakfast Sandwiches

  • 12 english muffins
  • 12 thin slices of cheddar cheese


Prep the Eggs

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spread the softened butter all around a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and set aside.
  • Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Pour into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until the eggs are just set. Cool slightly, cut into 12 squares, and set aside to cool completely.

Prep the Sausage

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the ground turkey and seasonings together with a fork.
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Divide the turkey sausage into 12 portions. Pat each one into a patty shape. Working in batches of 4 - 5 patties a time, brown the turkey sausage for 2 - 3 minutes on the first side and flip. Brown for 2 - 3 minutes on the second side or until the patties are golden brown and read 165°F on an instant read probe thermometer. Set aside to cool completely.

Assemble the Sandwiches

  • Preheat the oven broiler with the top rack just 6 inches from the heating element.
  • Split the english muffins and place them in a single layer, cut side up, on a broiler-safe baking pan. Broil the english muffins until just toasted. Watch carefully so they don't burn. You may need to do this in 2 batches.
  • Layer the toasted english muffins with one egg patty, one sausage patty, and one slice of cheese.
  • Wrap each sandwich individually in aluminum foil or plastic wrap for the freezer and freeze up to 3 months.

To Reheat Frozen Breakfast Sandwiches

  • For best results, thaw the frozen breakfast sandwiches in the fridge overnight. Remove the foil or plastic wrap and then reheat in the microwave for 1 minute on HIGH.

Recipe Notes

Sausage Alternatives:

If you don't want to make this recipe with the ground turkey sausage, my easy baked peppered bacon would make a perfect swap.
You could also keep these vegetarian-friendly by skipping the meat altogether and just making a few with just eggs.
