Thanks to this recipe, the classic bacon, egg and cheese is no longer relegated to the weekends. Make six of these sandwiches all at once, then wrap and freeze for a comforting, easy breakfast to enjoy anytime.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray or grease with butter.
Add the bacon to a cold medium skillet heat over medium heat. Cook, flipping occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
Whisk the eggs, milk, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper together in a large bowl. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake until puffed and set, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Place the English muffins cut-side up on a baking sheet and brush with some butter if using. Bake until slightly toasty, 3 to 4 minutes.
Once the eggs are cool enough to handle, use a large round biscuit cutter (about 3 3/4 inches in diameter) or the rim of a drinking glass to cut out 6 rounds. (For ways to use the leftover egg scraps, see Cook's Note.) Using an offset spatula or a butter knife, remove each egg round from the pan and place on bottom half of an English muffin. Top each with a slice of bacon, one slice of Cheddar and the other muffin half. Wrap each sandwich individually with aluminum foil, put in a resealable plastic bag and freeze up to 1 month or refrigerate for up to 1 week.
To reheat, unwrap a sandwich and place on a paper towel on a microwave-safe dish. Microwave 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, until the cheese is melted and eggs are warmed through. Alternatively, thaw a foil-wrapped frozen sandwich overnight in the refrigerator, then bake in a 425-degree F oven until warmed through and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
Save the baked egg scraps to use in fried rice, chopped egg salad or a breakfast burrito.
