Breakfast sandwiches have never looked this good! Or tasted this fine. Or been this satisfying. And they’re completely gluten-free, too! As a mostly Paleo dieter and almost always gluten-free, the thought of having a sandwich for breakfast, piled high with eggs and cheese and bacon and toasted to perfection is not something I would think to be possible. Until now! These egg white breakfast sandwiches are what your gluten-free breakfast dreams are made of.
How to make Weekday Breakfasts Easier
I have gotten my lunch and even my dinner meal prep down to a science. I cut up loads of veggies, I package up my salad fixins and dressings for the week in tupperware, and I roast my chicken, dividing it into easy-to-grab portions so I don’t even have to think about dinners during the week. Breakfast, on the other hand, is constantly a struggle. It inevitably happens that I think I’ll be okay getting up and making a protein shake everyday of the week. But inevitably two days in and I’ve already forgotten to wash the blender pitcher from the day before. Or, I’m sick of the flavors I’ve bought. Or the shakes just aren’t cutting it anymore, leaving my stomach growling and searching for a snack at 9:32am.
Meal prepping breakfast for the win
In comes these make-ahead breakfast sandwiches to make my dreams come true. They’re hearty and satisfying and oh-so-tasty. And prepping these ahead of time couldn’t be easier. Egg whites whisked with some coconut milk makes for a fluffy and delightful filling. Add in some bacon and some wilted spinach cooked in bacon fat and you’ve got yourself a real winner. The best part about these breakfast sandwiches is that the recipe makes more than a week’s worth at a time. And they freeze really well. Just pop one in the toaster before getting in the shower in the morning. By the time your hair is dried, you have yourself a hot, delicious breakfast waiting for you. No hunger pains mid-morning any longer!
Tips for Making This Recipe
- Generously oiling the baking pan will help you enormously when it comes time to get the cooked eggs out of the pan. I like to use a neutral tasting oil such as avocado. Avocado oil is also paleo-friendly. Feel free to use vegetable, grapeseed or even macadamia oil. I would avoid using olive oil as it may alter the flavor of your eggs
- Cooking the eggs in a 13x9 inch pan produces thicker egg rounds. If you prefer more egg rounds that are also thinner, you can use a baking sheet instead. You should be able to get about 12 egg rounds by using a baking sheet
- When cutting the egg rounds, I like to use the lid of a mason jar or cookie cutter. I cut out the rounds first, then lift them out of the pan using a small offset spatula. After cutting out 6 rounds, you may not have enough room to cut out additional rounds, however, you’ll have enough egg left in the pan to cut out half rounds and place them together on a muffin. They don’t have to be perfect, they’ll still taste just as good if they’re not in perfect rounds
