The holidays are here and that means that life is just kind of crazy! There are a million things on my to do list. Everything from shopping for gifts, holiday parties, school events, cookie exchanges and everything else in between. Every year I swear I am going to be more organized and make the next year easier!
It is just so hard to keep up with so much going on. But today I have a little bit of a trick for you. Something that can make life just a little bit simpler and take something off your plate. Breakfast….getting the kids out the door, you to work and everything else you have to do in the morning is hard right? Well these sausage breakfast sandwiches are the perfect make ahead breakfast to make your life easy!
I have been making these freezer breakfast sandwiches for years to help with busy mornings. I use Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Pork Sausage Patties that I pick up at my local Albertsons banner store to help make them super simple to put together. I love that it is the same fresh, high-quality pork sausage that I know and love about Jimmy Dean already, just in these little patties!
I like to actually set up an assembly line, stack everything and then wrap them up tight. These freezer breakfast sandwiches are great to get the kids involved. My son loves to help stack and wrap everything. It makes the process go even faster! And because the sausage patties are fully cooked, it really cuts down on the amount of work you have to do. The only thing you have to do is bake the eggs, and then just assemble!
After some trial and error over the years I have found the best way to make this breakfast sandwich recipe is to bake the eggs. Depending on how many I am making, that will determine the size of the pan I am using. To make 8 sandwiches I like to use a 10×7 inch baking dish. That is the one that fits inside the 9×13 inch pan. If you don’t have that, the bigger pan will be fine, your eggs will just be a little bit bigger on the sandwich.
You could even add cheese to the eggs when they are baking and skip the slice of cheese if you wanted, that would definitely work. Or you could mix up the cheese. My family likes the flavor of cheddar with the sausage patties, but you can use whatever your family likes! Wrap each sandwich with a small piece of paper towel, this helps to absorb any moisture when reheating and make sure things don’t get soggy.
You can find the Jimmy Dean sausage patties in the refrigerated aisles of your local Albertsons banner store. Right now you can get $20 off and Free Home Delivery of your first order, to make the holidays even easier! Easy to pick up when you are doing the rest of your shopping. Just a few simple ingredients and these freezer breakfast sandwiches can be ready and waiting for you. The sausage patties use a unique savory blend of Jimmy Dean signature seasonings, so the flavor really comes out in these breakfast sandwiches. Both the kids and the adults are going to love them!
If I can make just one part of my life easier during the holidays I will take it! This make ahead breakfast that the kids can just grab and be eating in less than 2 minutes, means my mornings are less stressful. And I know they are getting a filling breakfast that will last them until lunch time. Great for taking to work too! You know what else makes the holidays easier?
