Breakfast Sandwiches for a Rushed Morning

Taking the time to have a nice breakfast can turn out to be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make on days that are jampacked with meetings, errands, chores or whatever work that’s keeping you busy. That boost of energy in the morning can serve you well throughout the day. Sometimes though you just don’t have the time to prepare a good meal early in the morning. That’s when a breakfast sandwich can be the perfect option.

Here are five quick and easy breakfast sandwich recipes that you can try for those times when you’re in a bit of a rush.

Freezer Breakfast Sandwich

This is a breakfast sandwich that you can prepare ahead of time, store in the freezer and then heat up in the morning. You just need eggs, deli ham, cheese, salt and pepper and some English muffins. Cook the egg with salt and pepper to taste, layer it up with the ham and cheese on the English muffin, pack the sandwich in plastic wrap and then store in the freezer. In the morning, you can simply reheat the sandwich and you’re good to go. Check out the full recipe at Eat Cake For Dinner.
