Spinach Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

 In Breakfast, Cooking with KAKE, Recipes

I have been volunteering for a local organization that helps at-risk teens learn life skills. They live in mini apartments and have $80.00 every two weeks for all their food, cleaning and personal purchases. Going shopping only once every two weeks can be a huge challenge. They have to be very careful to spend their money well.

I developed this recipe using ingredients that have a long shelf-life or can be bought, frozen, and thawed easily. These sandwiches are full of protein and veggies. I make them and freeze them for my husband to eat for breakfast during the week. I like to wrap them in parchment paper and then place them in a zip-close bag in the freezer.

If you want to take these sandwiches from yummy to amazing, add a tablespoon of pesto on top of the cheese. You can make your own or just buy it at the store. Either way, a little pesto makes this a breakfast to remember.

Spinach Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

1 10 oz Box Frozen Chopped Spinach (Thawed.)

8 Eggs

1 teaspoon Coarse Sea Salt

1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

2 Tablespoons Milk

Cooking Spray

6 English Muffins, Toasted

6 Pieces of Sliced Cheese (I like Cheddar, Colby Jack, and Pepper Jack.)

Prepared Pesto (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Drain the thawed spinach. I like to put it in a dish towel and squeeze it. It will shrink significantly. You want to get out as much water as possible. Place the drained spinach in a medium mixing bowl. Add the eggs, salt, pepper, and milk and whisk to combine.

Spray and 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 baking dish well with cooking spray. Add the egg mixture to the baking dish and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. You will know it is done when the center is firm and does not jiggle. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes then cut into 6 rectangles. Place each rectangle on 1/2 of a toasted English muffin. Top with a slice of cheese and optional tablespoon of pesto. Place the other 1/2 of the muffin on top and serve, or wrap in parchment paper and freeze.

To reheat frozen sandwiches, place them on a microwave – safe plate and heat on 50% power for 3-5 minutes until warm throughout.
