Freezer Brrr-eakfast Sandwiches are Wonderful for Make-Ahead Mornings

This recipe for dairy-free freezer breakfast sandwiches is adapted from a version created by the Dole Company in honor of Disney’s Frozen 2. They teamed up to provide healthy, family-friendly, easy options that the whole family would enjoy. This is a well-balanced, make-ahead, full-sized breakfast that both kids and adults will enjoy. The recipe uses eggs, but we’ve added egg-free, vegan, and vegetarian options. (If you confuse eggs with dairy, you’re not alone! See this post: Are Eggs Dairy?)

These Freezer Brrr-eakfast Sandwiches are Wonderful for Make-Ahead Mornings

If you’re like me, then you love the ability to pop a fully-made breakfast out of the freezer and quickly reheat it for instant gratification. When frozen just after preparation, most breakfast items will taste oh-so-close to freshly made.

Preparation Options

In this recipe, the dairy-free freezer breakfast sandwiches are reheated in the microwave. That is definitely the fastest preparation. But we prefer a few other methods when time permits.

  • Oven – Bake them in your oven at 350°F until heated through. The texture will be much better.
  • Plan Ahead – Let one of the freezer breakfast sandwiches defrost in the refrigerator overnight, and heat it as needed in the morning.
  • Light Assembly – Toast fresh or frozen English muffins. While those are toasting, heat the sausage and egg squares in a pan over medium heat. Assemble and enjoy “fresh.”

No matter which way you make them, be sure that the meat and eggs are fully cooked through and have been stored properly.
