Freezer Friendly: Ham & Provolone Breakfast Sandwiches


2015 is going to the year for change and actually accomplishing some of the things I've always wanted to do. I feel that 2014 was the last leg of this really crappy period of my life. It started off a little bit rough, but certain events have led me to where I am now, and I truly believe that I had to go through all of that to be able to be the person I am now, and the person I hope to become. It's been a crazy ride, but I am FINALLY starting to be comfortable with myself. I feel stupid for starting my life off later than most people but I'm trying to look at it as a learning experience. In this new year, I'm hoping to become more open with my experiences and not be such a hard person to figure out (I've been told that by many people). I don't want to be open about it for Pity because that is the main reason I am so guarded. I don't like letting people know I've struggled,  and I don't want handouts because of the things I've experienced. I don't have much, but I've earned everything that I have and I want to keep it that way. It's going to be hard, but I want to be open about it because I just want to be understood, I guess, because I know how I come across sometimes. 



Anyway. Enough with the sappy stuff.  Let's get to cooking! One of the things I really want to work into my life, is meal planning and freezer cooking. Since starting this new job by the time I get home and pick Jacob up from afterschool care, it's late and the last thing I want to do is cook. I've been doing more takeout than I'd like to admit and I don't want to get into that habit again, as that kind of lifestyle got me into the mess I was in before with my weight.

I had Friday after Christmas off, which was totally weird for me, but I used that time to kick start this freezer cooking plan.  I made some turkey soup which I will be sharing later, and some Ham and Provolone Breakfast sandwiches. I know Breakfast sandwiches aren't dinner ;-) but they were simple and easy to make. Here is what you need to make them yourself.

12 English Muffin
12 eggs
12 slices of ham
12 slices of provolone
Muffin pan
Cookie sheet
oil

Preheat oven to 350°.  Prepare muffin pan by brushing eat slot with oil. Crack one egg in each slot; break yolk. Bake until done (about 10 minutes…admittedly, I didn't really time it.). Break apart English muffins, place on cookie sheet and toast in the oven.

When eggs are done, let them cool slightly then run a knife around the edge and pop them out of the pan. Let cool completely, then assemble the sandwiches. Wrap with foil, then place in a freezer bag and freeze.

When you're ready to eat, unwrap, then wrap it in a paper towel, and microwave for 3-4 minutes or until hot. If you want to use the oven heat oven to 400°, keep wrapped in foil and bake for 30-40 minutes until warm.

Not only will this save time, your wallet will thank you.
