I am not going to waste your time with me droning on and on about how excited I was that this little egg hack actually worked. But... the level of joy putting this recipe together brought me really does make me wonder if I might need to take a look at my day-to-day priorities. This journey into my psyche will have to wait for another time.
While I was looking up who coined the phrase, "It's the little things..." I was stopped in my tracks by this one.
“Notice the small things. The rewards are inversely proportional.” ~ Liz Vassey
The rewards of this little hack are definitely inversely proportional. So, without further ado...
12 eggs, scrambled
1/ cup milk or half & half
1/2 tsp each:
1/4 stick of butter melted
1 1/2 pounds of ground sausage, pattied & pressed out to at least the size of the English muffin and pan-fried
12 slices of Colby Jack cheese
12 English Muffins
(This is what I used in this picture... but season to taste and pick your favorites!)
Whisk eggs, milk, and spices until well mixed, then slowly whisk in the melted butter
Pour egg mixture into a well-greased 13x9 pan (Don't forget to grease the sides!)
Bake at 325 for 15-18 minutes - just until the center is set so they are not overcooked when you reheat.
Let cool and cut into 12 squares.
When eggs and meat are fully cooled, assemble sandwiches and wrap in parchment paper.
Freeze until ready to eat! Will keep for several days in the fridge as well
To heat, either let them defrost and heat them in a 350-degree oven for 5-6 minutes or microwave for 30 seconds If still frozen microwave on defrost mode for 30 seconds and then on high for another 30.
