Babies, man. Just when you think you’ve turned a corner and them figured out, they throw you a curve ball and you’re back a square one. For example: sleep. Our daughter is seven months old, and has slept through the night on exactly two occasions. Once was after a neighborhood party where we were up until 2 am, and the other was a random night when I worked overnight, and my husband was in charge. Therefore, I don’t think either of them count. I thought we were finally starting to see progress when she was only getting up once a night, but lately, its back to twice nightly wake-ups. Ugh. All this mama wants for Christmas is 8 hours of straight sleep!
I have never really a morning person to begin with, but being up multiple times a night really makes me hit the snooze button even harder. When I finally haul myself out of bed, I usually have approximately 25 minutes to get ready, feed the dog, pump, and maybe feed myself before I rush out the door. To say these breakfast sandwiches are a lifesaver is an understatement. I can throw one in the microwave while I gather my bags, and then eat as I drive into work. They’re healthy, full of protein and very filling, and prevent me from hitting the drive-thru on the way to work. I like to make them with ham, but you can easily swap out the ham for any other protein (bacon, sausage, etc.) or add some veggies if you desire. I like to make a bunch of them on Sundays to freeze for the week for my husband and I to take for breakfast.
More into breakfast burritos than sandwiches? I have another freezer friendly recipe here.
- 6 large eggs
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 6 bagel thins
- ½ pound sliced deli ham
- 6 slices of cheddar cheese
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray a small ramekin or cupcake tin with cooking spray, then crack 1 egg into each ramekin. Add salt and pepper to taste, then scramble if desired. Bake the eggs for 10-15 minutes until cooked through.
- Meanwhile, toast the bagels if desired, then set aside. When you eggs are done, allow them to cool, then assemble your sandwiches. Layer each bagel with a few pieces of ham, an egg, and a slice of cheese.
- Wrap in the foil and store in a ziplock bag in the freezer.
- To reheat, microwave on high for 30-60 seconds until warm.
