Instructions

Make It Now:

  1. Adjust the top oven rack to 6 inches below the broiler. Turn the broiler on high.
  2. Set the English muffins on a sheet pan and open them up with the insides facing up. Spread a little softened butter on the insides (optional). Toast under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, just until toasted. Keep a close eye on them.
  3. Turn off the broiler and preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a 9×9 inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into the casserole dish.
  5. Place the casserole dish on the middle oven rack. Bake the eggs for 20 minutes, or until set in the middle. Let cool slightly and slice into 9 equal squares.
  6. To assemble the sandwiches, top each muffin bottom with one egg square, one cheese slice, and 1-2 slices of Burgers’ Smokehouse Bacon that have been broken in half. Place the muffin top on and wrap the sandwich tightly in foil. (Freezing instructions begin here.)
  7. If eating immediately, warm the foil-wrapped sandwiches in the oven for about 5 minutes, or microwave uncovered (no foil!) for 30 seconds, until cheese is melted.

Freeze For Later: Follow directions through Step 6. Place the individually-wrapped sandwiches in a gallon-sized freezer bag and freeze.
