The Best McMuffin Breakfast Sandwich Copycat Recipe | Super Easy to Freeze

The Best McMuffin Breakfast Sandwich Copycat Recipe

yield: 6 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 25 MINUTES

total time: 35 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 6 English Muffins
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • cooked bacon
  • cooked sausage patties

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and spices. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Top with your choice of shredded cheese and bake for 25 minutes.

3

Once eggs have baked, remove from oven and let cool. I used a round cutter to cut out eggs in a circular shape and then place on top of English muffin. If you prefer, you can just cut eggs into squares.

4

Top with bacon, sausage or any veggies.

5

Wrap sandwich in plastic wrap and then again with a piece of foil or parchment paper. Place in a freezer in a resealable bag for up to 4 weeks.

Hip Tips:

  • Breakfast Sandwiches are so versatile as the options are literally endless! Try adding ham, bacon, veggies or even spice it up with pepper jack cheese or jalapenos! Also check out our Baked Tomato and Bacon version.
  • When freezing, I have the best outcome when I wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap and then wrap it with either parchment paper or foil and seal in a Ziploc bag. To make it really easy to grab and go, please each sandwich in an individual Ziploc bag so you can literally grab and run out the door!
  • Sandwiches can be stored in the freezer up to 3-4 weeks.
  • To heat the frozen sandwich, remove sandwich from plastic wrap and foil. Wrap sandwich in a damp paper towel and place in microwave for 1 minute. If sandwich is not completely warm in the middle, put back in the microwave for another 30 seconds.

    Love this idea! Doing this for sure! Super awesome for those (dreaded) upcoming chilly mornings. 🥶 Thank you!

  2. lhs

    Hi, So you don’t toast the english muffins at all?

    • hipashley

      Hey Ihs, you absolutely can toast them. I do not with freezing since warming them up in a microwave the muffin does become soft. If you are serving right away you can though.

  3. Cheri

    You haven’t lived until you’ve made these and sprinkled them with Everything But the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s! 🙂 Also great for a quick dinner if you’re in a hurry!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! I love that seasoning! Thanks for the suggestion, Cheri!

  4. Happy Aunt

    I like doing breakfast burritos this way as well!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Ooh! Awesome idea! I may try that too! Thanks for sharing with us!

  5. babymair

    Thx hip2save for another great idea.. I have a question tho.My son loves the ones from McDonalds .I buy 2 a week and put them in his lunch . Does anyone think this will thaw out by lunch ? Or should I just microwave in a.m. and it will be ok by lunch ? Tia.please keep these easy tips comming .God bless.

    • Ashley (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Your son will love these! I would still warm the sandwich up for a minute just to make sure it has thawed out. What an awesome lunch he is going to have.

  6. karen

    Great idea. How long do you microwave the sandwiches for?
    Thanks for all these great recipes.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Karen! Here is what we suggestion for heating them up!
      “To heat the frozen sandwich, remove sandwich from plastic wrap and foil. Wrap sandwich in a damp paper towel and place in microwave for 1 minute. If sandwich is not completely warm in the middle, put back in the microwave for another 30 seconds.”

      Hope this helps!

  7. nita

    This is great for the round dash mini grills that go for $8. Also the English muffin sandwich makers on amazon.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the helpful suggestion, Nita!

  8. nita

    I’d use an air fryer to re-heat..with a spray of olive oil inside and out

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the tip!

  9. Jessicac

    I’ve made similar sandwiches before and the egg retains so much moisture that the sandwich drips and runs as you eat it. What am I doing wrong??

  10. Gina

    Anyone know of a brand of English muffins that has few ingredients but tastes good?

  11. shop4mybabies

    i just make like a giant omelette in the frying pan and then use a glass to cut them into rounds that fit the english muffins perfectly…and i’m a pig so i put a ton of butter and two slices of cheese on the english muffin…and it’s top 5 favorite meals

  12. SaraBella

    Going to make these and the breakfast burrito pouches this week. Thank you for sharing these great ideas! ♥️
