Breakfast Southwestern Egg Sandwich

I like a quick breakfast on weekdays. I love cereal but I want something I can grab and go. I have made breakfast sandwiches before but I just scrambled the eggs. For something quick, it is pretty messy plus if I'm dressed up then I really don't need it on me. I can only imagine what I would look like showing up to an important meeting corrected in egg. I would share but I'm not sure anyone (besides my husband) would take me up on it. When I saw baked eggs, I realized it was the way to go. I could freeze any extra and have them on other days. I like my eggs mostly egg whites so I made them this way. The kids never know the difference.
Breakfast Southwestern Egg Sandwiches
6 egg whites
2 whole eggs
1 Tbsp milk
1/4 cup spinach, sliced thin
1/8 cup red bell pepper, sliced small
12 slices of pepper jack cheese
12 English muffins (I used whole grain.)
12 slices of Canadian bacon

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites, eggs, and milk. 
  4. Evenly pour a little of the egg white mixture into each muffin tin.
  5. Add a little spinach and red bell peppers to each egg mixture.
  6. Cook the eggs for 5 minutes.
  7. Rotate the eggs and cook for another 5 minutes or until the egg is cooked through.
  8. While the eggs are cooking, lightly toast the English muffins.
  9. Top the bottom section of the English muffin with a slice of Canadian bacon.
  10. Toast the English muffin until the Canadian bacon is warm.
  11. Remove the English muffin and add a slice of cheese on top of the Canadian bacon.
  12. Carefully remove one of the baked egg sections from the muffin tin and top the English muffin.
  13. Close the English muffin with the other section to form a sandwich.
