Ingredients

Whole Grain English Muffins: I use Dave’s Killer Bread classic English muffins, but choose any brand and flavor you like best. 

Large Eggs: you’ll need 4 large eggs to make these breakfast sandwiches. 

Egg Whites: I like to buy a carton of ready-to-use egg whites from the store for this recipe to keep things easy.

Breakfast Sausage Patties: feel free to use whatever breakfast sausage you prefer. I love to use Applegate savory turkey sausage patties, but chicken or pork sausage will work, too. 

Cheese: for extra flavor and cheesy goodness we’re using sliced sharp Cheddar cheese.

Green Onions: we’re adding some fresh green onion to the eggs for even more flavor.

Ingredient Variations

English Muffins: need to keep this recipe gluten free? grab some gluten free English muffins for these sandwiches.

Veggies: if you want to make these sandwiches a bit more veggie-focused,sauté your favorite veggies, and layer them on the sandwiches. Some of my favorite additions are spinach, onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers.  

Cheese: Not a fan of Cheddar? Swap it out with any other cheese you prefer such as mozzarella, Swiss, Monterrey, or PepperJack. 

Breakfast Sausage: Not a fan of sausage? Want to keep this recipe vegetarian? Use whatever protein source you like best! Bacon, chicken, chopped mushrooms, or plant-based sausage all work well. Or, you can just leave the meat out.

How to Make This High Protein Breakfast Sandwiches Recipe

Step One: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

Step Two: Brush or spray the cut side of the English muffins with olive oil or cooking oil spray. Toast them in a skillet cut side up until they’re lightly golden. 

Step Three: Spray or brush the ramekins with oil. Crack one egg into each ramekin. Then, add 3 tablespoons of egg whites to each ramekin as well. Use a fork to break the yolk and lightly whisk the egg and egg whites together. Sprinkle the top of each ramekin with thinly sliced green onion. 

Step Four: Bake the eggs for 10 to 12 minutes or just until they’re just set. 

Step Five: While the eggs are baking, cook the turkey sausage patties according to the package directions. 

Step Six: Use an off-set spatula to carefully remove the baked eggs from the ramekins. Place each egg on the bottom half of the English muffins. Next, add the turkey patties on top followed by a slice of Cheddar cheese and the English muffin top. 

What Could I Serve with These Breakfast Sandwiches?

This recipe is filling enough to enjoy on its own. Or, if you want to serve it as part of a brunch spread, the sandwiches pair well with an arugula salad, fresh fruit, roasted breakfast potatoes, and, of course, lots of coffee or your favorite latte

How to Store, Freeze, and Reheat

Store: Wrap each breakfast sandwich tightly with foil. They will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

Freeze: Let your sandwiches cool completely, and wrap them individually with aluminum foil. Transfer the breakfast sandwiches to a freezer-safe bag, and keep them frozen for up to 3 months.  

Oven Reheat: Thaw the breakfast sandwiches in the fridge overnight. In the morning, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Heat the sandwiches, completely wrapped, for 10 minutes. Then, unwrap them, and continue to warm for 5 to 10 minutes, flipping halfway, or until completely heated through.

Microwave Reheat: If you’re in a rush, you can also microwave your sandwiches in 30-second increments on the reheat or lower power microwave setting. They just don’t taste quite as good or get as crisp.
