I think fresh is always best but you can make the sandwiches in batches and freeze them for busy weekday mornings. Don’t add the tomato and avocado until you’re ready to serve if you’re making them in advance.

Who needs the fat, calories, or expense of drive-thru sandwiches when you can grab this on your way out the door.

Yield: 2 hearty sandwiches, recipe halves, doubles, etc. easily

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: about 3 to 5 minutes

Total Time: about 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Thomas' Light Multi-Grain English Muffins, halved, lightly toasted
  • butter, to taste for buttering English muffins
  • 4 large eggs, beaten and scrambled
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 small tomato, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/2 small avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced into thin segments

Directions:

  1. Halve, toast, and lightly butter the English muffins; set aside. While they're toasting, scramble the eggs.
  2. Crack and lightly beat the eggs in a medium bowl, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray, add the eggs, and cook over medium-high heat to scramble, stirring intermittently. Cook about 3 to 5 minutes, or until done.
  4. Slice the tomato and avocado.
  5. Add half the tomatoes, half the eggs, and half the avocado to one of the English muffin halves, top with other half to form a sandwich. Use remaining ingredients to assemble second sandwich. Sandwiches are best warm and fresh but can be frozen for up to 3 months; allow to thaw and reheat gently in the micro as desired before serving. If making sandwiches in advance to freeze, don't add the tomato and avocado until you're ready to serve.

  1. These look so yummy and filling! I love hot and quick breakfasts like this. I might have to slap on a slice of sharp cheddar on this, though (cheese is so tempting).

  2. Wow, those Thomas’ Light muffins sure do have a long ingredient list.

  3. These are great! I love doing egg muffin sandwiches for dinner, too. They’re quick and have every nutrient you need!
    Love the idea of putting avocado on, too.

  4. Jon will cook his own eggs and ate something so similar to this yesterday morning (with hummus and cheese instead of avocado). I never thought to make up a batch for the freezer but it’s a great idea. Cook once eat a few times!

  5. I can’t lie. I sometimes crave the Drive-Thru egg breakfast sandwiches….and then always regret it after eating them! I love that this is SO much healthier and has that protein to keep me from trying to eat my arm off before lunch   :) Pinned!

  6. I’m so with you on eating eggs with tomatoes…I especially love putting salsa on my eggs so good…a good breakfast sandwich is the best and it’s portable.

  16. I LOVE egg sandwiches.  I used to eat these everyday for breakfast back in grad school.  I’d bring all the parts separately and then nuke an egg in the microwave at my office, add the rest to a warmed english muffin and BAM.  Now I am seriously craving one!
