Easy Make-Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches

Meal prepping will never go out of style. Mark my words.

I’ve been meal-prepping for more than 5 years now. I cook all of my lunches and dinners for the week on Sundays and then eat them throughout the workweek.

Sometimes I’ll prep a breakfast to eat throughout the week, like overnight oats or freezer breakfast burritos.

This breakfast sandwich is easy to make-ahead for all of you who are rushing to get out the door before work or school.

I like how this gives you everything you need all in one sandwich: protein, veggies, dairy, whole grains and fruit (cherry tomatoes, technically, are fruit). The best part, though, is how easy it is to make the egg part of this sandwich: just pop it in the oven then cut into circles once it’s done baking!

I wrapped each sandwich (this recipe makes six, with some of the egg mixture leftover that you can eat on its own) in foil then stacked them up in my fridge to grab-and-go every morning before work. Just pop one in the microwave (sans foil) fo 30 seconds and eat.

PS: Each sandwich comes out to around 350 calories.

Enjoy!
