Make ahead Breakfast Sandwiches

I will be the first to tell you that I am not a meal prepper. The closest I get is freezing the 2 leftover pancakes for my child to eat midweek or splitting leftovers into a few lunchbox friendly containers for the next day. But when you want a good breakfast when working 40+ hrs a week and having a family and animals to care for in the morning beforehand, sometimes you gotta do something to make your mornings just a little easier.  

Before we got our flock of chickens, I remember going to the store for those frozen breakfast sandwiches for busy mornings, and I couldn't believe how much they were charging when I could make them so much cheaper. (And my husband likes to snack on them, so 9/10 they were gone before my busy mornings really came) so I started making my own.
I get the skinny bagels or skinny buns, whip up about a dozen eggs and milk to make scrambled eggs and put them into a few donut baking sheets (mostly because they are about the right size for sandwiches. I know others who use a cookie sheet and cut them apart. This just saves me a step, since I have the donut sheets already. I'll share my baked donut recipe another day) 

I put the trays in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, and then move them to a drying rack to cool and add a slice of cheese.  

Then I build the sandwiches, adding the sausage patties (or bacon, I go for low sodium) and wrap them in foil and put them in the freezer. Then when we want them, unwrap, pop them in the microwave for a minute and they are ready to eat!
