Cut English Muffin in half and place the cooked egg on the bottom part of the muffin. You can also use a bagel, which is my husband’s preferred sandwich!
Add a slice of cheese on top of the egg and then place the top half of the muffin on the sandwich. A little note about cheese, you can use whatever cheese you want but Kraft singles in my opinion melt the best in the toaster oven and are our preferred for breakfast sandwiches!

Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich FAQ
Can I add more to this breakfast sandwich?
Yes! This is just the easy and fast version that I enjoy. You’re more than welcome to add black pepper, oven baked bacon, sausage, hot sauce, sriracha sauce, or even switch out the melty cheese with pepper jack cheese, swiss cheese, or monterey jack cheeses depending on your preference!
Do I have to use English muffins?
No, that’s just my preference since they are small and compact, making them super easy to store in my freezer when I make them in advance. You are welcome to use bagels or slices of bread too. You can try ciabatta rolls, rye bread, or whatever you think will make for a good breakfast! This cheese and egg sandwich recipe can really be molded into whatever you want it to be—as long as you keep it easy!
How to freeze breakfast sandwiches?
Simply make the sandwiches per directions and then allow to cool down. Wrap each sandwich in wax paper so they don’t stick together, and then place in freezer bags and freeze.
Once you’re ready to make them, remove from freezer, unwrap from wax paper and then cook in the microwave or in the toaster oven.
How can I make this recipe healthier?
You can purchase low carb English muffins and pay attention to nutrition labels when deciding what sliced cheese to purchase. You can also add spinach, onion, tomatoes and/or other veggies to top off your sandwich. Not only will this make your sandwich healthier but it will give it much more color and flavor!
