What to do with all these eggs??

Mike eats his breakfast on the go. It's usually a Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich on his way to work. So I thought I would give it a try and make some for him. Am I going to get up early and cook him breakfast everyday before he goes to work? Nope, not a chance, but I will make several at a time and freeze them.

I got some tips off Facebook.  I think the best one was to weave the bacon, it stayed flat. Another tip was too bake the eggs in a muffin pan so they areround and all the same shape and make a nice looking breakfast sandwich.

Here's how I did it

4 Eggs
4 English muffins
4 slices of bacon
2 sausage patties
4 slices of cheese
pan spray

I sprayed ramekins with pan spray. I decided not to use the muffin pans because I thought the egg would be too thick. Cracked the egg and put it in the ramekin. I then broke the yolk and slightly scrambled it. I baked them in the toaster oven @350 for 13 minutes.

(I didn't want to heat up the kitchen with the oven in this heat)

I cut the slices of bacon in half and did a "basket weave" with 4 of the slices (so 2 full slices) and then fried them. They stayed flat and perfect for the sandwiches.  Cooled bacon on a paper towel

Fried the sausage patties then cooled on a paper towel.

Let the eggs cool for a few minutes then removed them from the ramekins to continue cooling.

Toasted the English muffins and let them cool.
When everything was cool enough not to melt butter & cheese I assembled the sandwiches,

Buttered the muffins, added the bacon or sausage, added the egg and topped with cheese. They were individually wrapped in Glad press & seal and then frozen.To reheat, remove the plastic wrap, wrap in paper towel, microwave on 30% or defrost for 2 minutes then cook on 100% for 45 seconds.

I'm not that great or creative with my cooking. I only cook because I have to, but I must say these came out pretty good.
