How do I make a Spanish egg sandwich?
Start out by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray your baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
In your mixing bowl, whisk together your eggs. Whisk in the salt and pepper to taste. Pour your egg mixture into your baking dish.
Add in your peppers, onions, garlic, and cheese to the egg mixture in the baking dish. Give everything a quick mix to spread the ingredients around.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. You’ll know the eggs are done when the top is set and slightly browned.
Let the egg mixture cool for about five minutes before you assemble your sandwich.
Cut your egg mixture into circles or squares and put them on your english muffins. Now is also the time to add any other toppings you’d like to enjoy on your breakfast sandwich.
Tips for Making a Spanish Egg Sandwich
- If you like a crunchy “bun”, toast your english muffin before making your sandwich.
- Add any other toppings to your egg sandwich you like. Want more cheese? Add it on!
- Switch up the toppings to give yourself a variety of egg sandwiches.
- Make these ahead of time and freeze them. Assemble your english muffin and cooked egg mixture. Wrap your sandwiches in plastic wrap then in aluminum foil. Be sure to label the aluminum foil with the type of sandwich you made and the date. Defrost them in the refrigerator the night before or pop it in the microwave for a few seconds in the morning (be sure to take the aluminum foil off first!). Add on any other toppings you’d like.
- Don’t care for english muffins? Use biscuits, bagels, tortillas, or whatever else you like.
