What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Breakfast of Champions Sandwich
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 455 calories, if 1 serving is made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Move over egg muffin – this homemade version if 100% better than that store bought one. I loved this sandwich because it was fresh and rich.  I made two sandwiches, because I wanted to freeze one to see how it held up. If it holds up great, then I will make them in batches to save time. This one is darn good!!!  

The next day, in the microwave, I heated up the remaining sandwich, and it was wonderful!!  These are so easy to do ahead, and have a great flavor. I will be making the remaining six today.

 Here are the ingredients that I used to create this recipe.

 Ree heated her English muffins on a griddle, but I took 
the easier route and used a regular old toaster.

 I buttered them after they came out of the toaster. 
I cooked them very crispy, so they would not absorb much of the 
butter from the eggs, or water from the ham.

 I heated the ham slices in a skillet,
and then patted them dry

 Since I was only making two today, 
I put them in the same skillet.
Ree used egg rings which are so cool.
They are what makes the McDonald's eggs
in a perfect circle.

 I like my eggs, over hard, so I broke the yolks,
 and separated the eggs into the two portions.

 I just love eggs!!!

 I also patted them to remove some of the butter.

 I began the assembly line. First, the muffin. I then, put a piece 
of ham on the top and bottom of the muffins. On went the eggs....

 and finally the cheese. Ree's recipe called for 
American cheese, but I only had cheddar in the freezer, 
so that is what I used. I just learned from my Mom, not to freeze cheese slices, and boy was she right. The just fell apart.  
Oh well.....I have to use'em up so beauty is not my goal.
On went the tops and....

 Wa lah!!! Two Breakfast of Champion sandwiches.

 Gosh, I just love this sandwich!!!!!

 In order to freeze it, I first wrapped 
the second sandwich in plastic wrap,

and then in foil. This will help avoid 
freezer burn. I did learn of something new that 
I want to purchase (like I need another kitchen appliance). I want one of those vacuum sealers. 
I think that will help in freezing sandwiches 
like these. I wonder if you can vacuum seal bread items????? Sounds like research is needed!!!!!!
I also want those egg rings!!
