mmmmm, mondays: breakfast sandwiches


i am not a morning person. i don't love getting up early. i walk around in a bit of a coma until i get some caffeine coursing through my veins. my children are very accustomed to cereal in the mornings. any special breakfast food comes during a breakfast for dinner night. the only exception to that rule are these breakfast sandwiches. they are one of the kids' favorite dinners and the leftovers make breakfasts just as amazing. they are a snap to prepare and they are deliciously simple. 

breakfast sandwiches

one package refrigerated or frozen biscuits (i like "immaculate" biscuits)

one package breakfast sausage, bacon, or ham (enough for 8 sandwiches)

6 eggs, beaten with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese added to the egg mixture

8 slices cheddar cheese

butter


bake the biscuits per the package directions. while the biscuits are baking, cook the breakfast meats (i microwave the bacon or cook the sausage on the stove. ham can be warmed either way.) using an extremely large skillet or saute pan, make two very large omelettes. loosen the omelette around the edges and flip in the same pan to make sure each side is cooked well. when the omelette is cooked, cut it into quarters and set aside. when the biscuits are baked, cut them in half. butter each side of the biscuit. layer one slice of cheese, 1/4 of the one omelette, and your choice of breakfast meat and sandwich in each biscuit. enjoy!

the best part of these little sammies is that they are easy to store and easy to heat up again in the morning. i double the recipe each time i make these and save the extras for breakfast in the mornings. make up the extra sandwiches. store each one in its own plastic container or plastic storage bag. reheat each one individually in the morning in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until cooked through. enjoy yet again!
