We all sit around the table at breakfast, read through our news feeds, and talk about our days ahead. This is all followed by me handing out packed lunches and kisses as everyone leisurely strolls out the door for school and work. Everyone is smiling, and it’s a fabulous day! Does this sound like fact or fantasy? Maybe your day starts out with kids fighting over the bathroom or refusing to get out of bed, leaving little time for a good breakfast. Well, that’s my reality.
Mornings are the busiest time of our day. Growing up, I skipped breakfast all the time. My head hurt, my stomach growled, and I was not a very nice person until I ate. I am pretty strict about making sure my kids have a good breakfast, even if it’s rushed. Meal prepping is really helping my family stay happy and well fed in the mornings. My husband is really enjoying a hot meal, even if we are still in bed when he leaves.
I have been wanting to make something with these bagel thins for awhile. It wasn’t until I found these cute little tart baking cups at Michael’s that I came up with the idea to make breakfast sandwiches. The tart cups are the perfect size for the eggs to cover the bagel. Make sure they are waxed so the egg doesn’t stick to the cup.
- 8 eggs
- 8 (3-1/2 inch diameter) waxed paper bakeware (looks like a small tart pan)
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 pack of thin sliced bagels (8 in a bag)
- 8 slices of cheese
- 8 slices of ham
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place paper 8 tart cups on a large baking sheet.
- Spray each cup with oil, wiping up any puddles of oil.
- In a glass measuring cup, crack one egg at a time.
- Add a dash of salt and pepper to each egg and pour one at a time into each of the 8 cups.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, being careful not to overbake.
- Remove from oven and let cool.
- Remove eggs from cups and set aside.
- Assemble bagelwich: bagel, egg, ham, and cheese.
- Wrap each bagelwich in waxed paper.
- Label and date 8 freezer bags.
- Place bagelwiches in the bags.
- Place in the freezer.
- When ready to eat, remove from freezer.
- Place in the microwave for 1 minute - 1 minute, 30 seconds.
