25 Best Breakfast Sandwich Recipes

Good morning! It’s time to rise and shine– and start your day off right with a solid breakfast! And what better way to do that than with a tasty sandwich?

Breakfast Sandwich Recipes

Sandwiches work for all meals, and breakfast is no exception.

Go classic with an egg and ham melt, or if you’re feeling fancy, bite into a lox and cream cheese bagel.

Whatever your taste buds desire, I have suitable breakfast sandwich recipes for you! Read on to get some of the best, easy ideas for your next morning meal.

1. Breakfast Sandwich

If you only have these five ingredients and 5 minutes to spare, I’ve got the recipe for you!

This quick and easy sandwich for breakfast is perfect for those hungry mornings when you’re short on time.

Don’t be shy with that cheese when cooking! It gives this sandy that comforting, home-cooked feel and helps keep everything sticking together.

Make sure to break the yolks while frying for even cooking and a better presentation.

Plus, it’ll prevent any spills when you take a big bite!

2. The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

The name says it all. This is one of the best breakfast sandwiches I’ve seen.

It takes decadence to a whole new level. Yet, it stays true to the classic breakfast ingredients– eggs, bacon, guacamole, and cheese, all topped on a crispy, buttery croissant. Simplicity meets perfection.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any richer, outcomes the secret ingredient.

I hadn’t used garlic butter tomato sauce until this recipe. Now I’m just waiting to find something else to spread it on!

3. Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Have you ever had a waffle sandwich?

Well, whoever invented the waffle which was a genius. You can make waffles from scratch or just pop some frozen ones into the toaster! They make the perfect sandwich-sized holder and soak up extra cheese and sauce in their pockets.

Drizzle some maple syrup inside if you like a hint of sweetness with your savory flavors.

Your kids will love the fun combinations of textures and tastes in this egg breakfast sandwich!

4. Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Want to know the secret to feeling sunny-side up in the morning? Prepping ahead!

This premade recipe is perfect for those busy mornings when you don’t have time to fry an egg.

Stockpile them and toss them in the microwave when you’re ready!

They also make a great on-the-go breakfast when things are feeling a bit chaotic. We’ve all been there. If the family is having difficulty getting out the door, heat some of these up and hand them out in the car.

Crisis averted.

5. Baked Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

Sometimes being flaky is a good thing, especially when it comes to croissants. Crossaints are known for being buttery and soft. When baked, you also get that delicious flaky pastry texture.

The sharp cheddar cheese gives this easy breakfast sandwich a punch. You get that nutty, crumbly, aged flavor that complements croissants and ham so well.

This recipe can be made ahead, wrapped tightly in tinfoil, and frozen for later—yet another sandwich to add to your ready-to-go repertoire.

6. Tom’s Scrambled Egg Sandwich

This unique but straightforward recipe is ready in 15 minutes. It might sound a bit unusual to add mustard and mayo to eggs, but I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the combo.

What also makes this recipe special is how the eggs are cooked. For that extra fluffy texture, don’t mix them up while cooking. Exercise some patience and let them cook all the way on one side, then flip them over.

This will help them fold over in one piece for an easy-to-eat sandwich.

7. Fried Chicken Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich

Get a taste of the south with these incredible breakfast sandwiches.

Fried chicken, biscuits, and honey make an excellent trio. You’ve got the crispy textures of chicken, soft, buttery bread, and sweetness.

Drizzle the honey on while these sandwiches are still hot so they can melt and spread evenly over the chicken.

Add a dash of Tobasco you like food both spicy and sweet.

8. Egg Sandwiches with Onion

If you’re looking for healthy breakfast sandwich ideas– look no further!

These egg sandwiches are packed with onions and nutritious herbs but still have the satisfying heartiness of scrambled eggs and English muffins.

For me, the carmelized onions steal the show here. The richly sweet flavors pair well with the aromatic herbs.

I would opt for cilantro, but if you’re not a fan, dill or basil work well too!

9. Avocado Breakfast Sandwich

Avocado is all the rage, and this egg breakfast sandwich lives up to the hype.

Avocado is packed with healthy fats and gives the meal a creamy, buttery edge.

This recipe is vegetarian, but all those non-veggies out there can try adding extra bacon if desired.

It’ll add a crispy texture and a smoky, salty taste you won’t regret.

10. Jersey Ham Egg Bagel

Just how hungry are you? Because this bagel breakfast sandwich is stacked! Which I’m sure you can tell from the descriptive name.

Jersey ham and herb cream cheese set this bagel apart. Jersey ham is available in New Jersey and many surrounding states.

However, it can be substituted with any pork roll available at your local butchers.

11. Bacon ’n’ Egg Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Do you remember grilled cheese sandwiches from childhood? Who doesn’t! This classic sandwich was an integral part of childhood.

I love dipping my grilled cheese into a creamy tomato soup, even as an adult. Why wait for lunch?

Bacon and eggs give this sandy a morning twist.

Make a tomato-based sauce for dipping, and you’ll feel like you’re back in your mother’s kitchen.

12. Breakfast Sandwich with a Hashbrown

It’s all the favorite breakfast dishes in one handheld meal! Hashbrowns are an excellent addition that makes the sandwich both crunchy and mealy.

Keep the eggs runny so the yolk will spill over the potatoes and bread like a rich sauce. If you want a cleaner, on-the-go version, make sure to cook the eggs longer.

13. Spinach, Egg, & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

There’s a reason the buff Popeye cartoon character loved spinach so much! This mild, leafy veggie is packed with vitamins and minerals. Its flavor isn’t overwhelming but adds a hint of acidity and earthiness to this breakfast sandwich.

The ingredients are simple and make for great prep-ahead meals. Keep it in the freezer and pop it in the microwave or oven when it’s time to eat!

14. BLT Egg Sandwich

Are you a BLT fan? Well, this breakfast-worthy version will hit the spot!

The ingredients are widely available, and the sandwich is easy to prep. Lettuce and tomato are fresh ingredients. The only actual cooking involves frying eggs and bacon.

You can even fry both in the same pan. The eggs will soak up all that delicious bacon grease everyone loves so much!

15.  Healthy Avocado Egg Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

Are you on a health kick but still want to enjoy a satisfying, flavorful breakfast? I’ve got you covered.

This well-balanced breakfast has all the components you need to start your day, or diet, off right—veggies for nutrients, eggs for protein, and wholegrain bread to hold it all together.

Even if you’re looking to be even healthier, opt for gluten-free or seed-based bread instead.

You can be healthy and still eat delicious food!

16. Pancake Breakfast Sandwich

What makes the best breakfast sandwich recipe? Nothing stacks up like pancakes do– quite literally. Pancakes create the perfect bread replacement.

This sandwich reminds me of an upgraded version of an egg Mcmuffin, but with pancakes instead of the biscuits.

It has an added sweetness as a result, especially if you drizzle some extra maple syrup over the top too.

The flavors create a diverse profile– sweet, sticky, meaty, savory, and scrumptious! Bon appetite!

17. One-Pan Ham, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

Keep it classic with this simple yet delicious breakfast—the ingredients and simple and easy to find.

But the cooking technique is what gives this recipe its perfectly layered texture.

Folding the ham and cheese inside the eggs allowed everything to stay together nicely within the bread– and gives each bite a flavorful combination of each item. It’s cheesy, rich, and just the right amount of filling.

So grab a pan and get to cooking!

18. One Pan Egg Toast

Finding it hard to choose between savory or sweet for your breakfast? No need to choose between the two. This one-dish recipe has both!

This creative recipe went viral on Youtube, and it’s no wonder why.

The French toast-style bread pairs perfectly with strawberry jam and bacon. It’s a jammy, crispy, salty delight.

If your taste buds aren’t watering already, you’ll need to try it to understand its allure.

19. Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches

Pillsbury biscuits are the secret to this recipe’s popularity. They’re sweet and buttery with a soft but not overly flaky texture. They’re super easy to make, seeing how the dough is pre-made.

Just pop the biscuits in the oven while prepping the rest!

A great recipe to take on the go or wrap in tin foil for a late morning snack.

This recipe makes it easy to make a bunch and munch on them throughout the day. Sometimes one just isn’t enough!

20. Healthy Breakfast Sandwich

Do you love a good DIY cooking hack? Well, I have one for you!

This recipe uses a mason jar lid to shape the omelet into a perfectly round patty.

Simply combine the ingredients in a bowl, place a mason jar into the heated pan, and slowly pour the mixture inside.

The secret ingredients with extra health benefits are spinach and avocado. They also give this simple sandwich a nice burst of green color!

21. Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

If you’ve read the title of this recipe, you know just what makes this meal ideal. Freeze them and save them for those busy mornings, camping trips, or car snacks.

Here you have traditional ingredients that work together well.

What’s great about this simple combo is that it can be jazzed up quite easily. Try adding some tomato butter, sriracha, or guacamole to switch it up.

22. Healthy Breakfast Sandwich

Here’s a sandwich that’s all about versatility! You can make it as healthy or decadent as you please– and prepare it according to your own dietary restrictions.

Add loads of veggies if that’s your jam, substitute the bread for a gluten-free option if need be, or melt cheese in the middle to go all out. The possibilities are endless.

Play around with different ways until you find your perfect freezer-friendly version!

23. TikTok Egg Sandwich Hack

Breakfast Sandwiches have found their way to TikTok! If you’re a fan, this one is for you.

I love recipes with quick how-to videos. And who doesn’t love efficiency in the morning?

This sandwich can be made in one pan in under 15 minutes. Less prep– and fewer dishes– means faster cleanup and cooking time and more time to enjoy the food.

So pull up a chair, relax, and bite into this savory time-saving sammie!

24. BA’s Best Breakfast Sandwich

Bon Appetit chose this recipe as their best for a reason.

While ingredients often overlap in breakfast sandwiches, the differences are all in the subtleties.

This meal yields extra fluffy eggs and a sweet and spicy flavored sauce.

Feel free to swap out some ingredients for others. Go for bacon instead of sausage patties or pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. Different strokes for different folks, after all! And just like the magazine’s namesake goes– Bon appetite!

25. Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

Pillsbury does breakfast right. This recipe is no exception.

Soft in the center but with a crispy, golden exterior, crescent rolls create the perfect breakfast sandwich.

They also tuck all the ingredients safely inside, so you won’t have to worry about any spillage.

When wrapping them up, throw in some extra ingredients, such as chopped spring onions or peppers.

You can also swap out the bacon for extra veggies if you’re vegetarian.
