1. Breakfast Monte Cristo Sandwich

As a huge lover of the sweet and salty combination, this is one of my faves.

The tastes of the eggy bread and ham, as well as the jam and powdered sugar, are all delicious.

I know it might seem strange, but the ham and jam go so great together.

The cheese lends smoothness to the dish, and then there’s the flavorful egg on top.

If the raspberry jam isn’t your thing, try this fresh tomato and caramelized onion jam instead.

2. Veggie Packed Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Eggs appear in so many of these recipes because they are a great way to start the day. They’re high in protein and will keep you satisfied for hours.

What better way to get those nutrients than by eating a lot of vegetables?

This recipe calls for spinach and broccoli, but you may substitute any vegetables you have on hand. Mushrooms would be an excellent addition.

3. Grilled Nutella Banana Sandwich

This sandwich seems like it came straight out of a dream. The toasted bread with sweet bananas and creamy Nutella improves with each mouthful, and you won’t want to share it.

I’ve used sliced brioche, French toast, and even banana bread to make them! I’ll even toss in some crispy bacon if I’m feeling really wicked!

4. The Ultimate Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich

Are you trying to figure out why this dish is dubbed “the greatest” breakfast sandwich?

It might be the fried eggs, the smashed avocado, the crispy bacon, the thick tomato slices, or the melting cheddar.

Everything biscuits for me! Why hadn’t I thought of this before?

You can typically get them at Trader Joe’s, or you can create your own.

5. Huevos Rancheros Style Breakfast Sandwich

I had huevos rancheros for the first time on a vacation to Mexico. Let me tell you, one bite of that delicious food, and I was a fan for life.

I often resort to this for a spicy supper, thanks to the salsa, delicious refried beans, chunky guacamole, and a runny egg yolk.

You may leave this vegetarian, but I prefer to add some chicken or ham for extra protein.

I’ve also put this identical recipe into a toasted bagel, which was delicious.

6. Starbucks Bacon & Gouda Artisan Breakfast Sandwich

For the longest time, I would reward myself with an iced coffee, a bacon and gouda sandwich, and a warm brownie at least once a week. Then came the lockdown!

Making them at home allowed me to maintain a sense of normality in the midst of the chaos.

You may even make your own ciabatta if you’re feeling really daring.

7. Croque Madame

A Croque Monsieur is a delicious grilled cheese sandwich that I crave at least once a week.

A Croque Madame, on the other hand, takes extraordinary to a whole new level.

It takes everything you love about the monsieur — the Gruyère, the thick-cut ham, and the delicious mornay sauce — and adds a fried egg on top.

There are very few things that a runny yolk does not improve.

8. Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffle Sandwiches

This may be the simplest sandwich on the list. Isn’t there a package of frozen waffles in everyone’s freezer?

I know how delicious handmade waffles are, but when time is of the essence, frozen waffles may simply be thrown into the toaster.

Peanut butter and jelly are a traditional pairing, and they will warm and melt in the waffles to create a delicious little snack.

9. Sandwiches French Toast Style

Did you know that in the United Kingdom, French toast is referred to as “eggy bread,” and it is usually not sweet?

They prepare it the same way but add eggs, bacon rashers and baked beans to it. Exceptionally tasty!

You could also go for a sweeter option by adding Nutella and bananas.

However, I strongly advise the savory version of adding cheddar cheese slices and bacon rashers. You will not be sorry!

10. Wafflewich Recipe

If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, try this waffle sandwich with marshmallows, peanut butter, and chocolate chips!

It may not be ideal for a quick breakfast on the move, but it will certainly get your day started on a sugar high.

11. Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

If you’ve never eaten a baked croissant sandwich, I recommend you go to the nearest bakery and get some right now.

When loaded with crispy bacon, a runny egg, and cheese, the buttery, gently crunchy croissant is a dream.

You’d be amazed that croissants freeze really well, and since you’re essentially cooking them you could even use day-old croissants.

12. BLT For Breakfast

The BLT is a well-known classic. It’s a great combination of toasted bread, crispy bacon, and juicy grilled tomatoes.

Now add a nicely fried egg with a runny yolk. I also prefer to add some kind of spicy sauce, but mayonnaise is also delicious.

13. Maple Bourbon Chicken & Waffle Sandwich

Breakfast with fried chicken? You already know this is one to try!

The waffles, I believe, are the essential component here; otherwise, you’ll have a fried chicken sandwich for breakfast.

That isn’t always a negative thing! But the waffle and syrup tastes go so well with the crispy chicken.

14. Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese is something I could eat at any time of day. In fact, it’s my go-to lazy meal when I’m too tired to prepare.

However, this dish is ideal for breakfast. It’s loaded with savory sausage, creamy eggs, and melting shredded cheese.

Don’t be scared to add some bacon and a splash of spicy sauce.

15. Grilled Cheese With A Blueberry Twist

When I started searching for this recipe, I got lost in a grilled cheese maze. The only cure was to go and make myself a grilled cheese sandwich.

But now I’m back and eager to share this recipe!

I use Brie which may seem an extravagance but the rich flavor packs a real punch. Throw in some blueberries, and you have a match made in heaven.

And you can’t really use sliced American cheese in a fancy grilled sandwich, can you?

16. Open-Faced Denver Breakfast Sandwiches

I’ve eaten my fair share of open-faced sandwiches having spent a lot of time in Scandinavia and the Baltics.

Nothing beats being given a plate full of them, with all the ingredients and colors on show.

These are especially noteworthy since I’m sure most of us have had a Denver omelet with hash potatoes and diner coffee.

I like how this dish incorporates scrambled eggs, and it looks wonderful with some green onions sprinkled on top.

17. McDonald’s Sausage and Egg McMuffin Recipe

It’s difficult to pass down a sausage and egg McMuffin when you’re running late, and it’s great for hangovers.

It’s amazing how simple these are, and they’re ideal for cooking ahead of time.

Simply prepare everything as usual (if preparing a lot, fry the sausage or bacon on a sheet pan), assemble, wrap, and freeze.

You may take them out in the morning and microwave them for a minute or two for an easy on-the-go breakfast.

18. Grilled Cheese That Tastes Like Apple Pie

This may sound odd in a sandwich. Combining apple, cinnamon, cheese and sugar. That’s right, you read correctly.

The tangy cheddar pairs wonderfully with the tart apple in this traditional combination of apple and cheese.

Instead of having large pieces of apple mixed with the cheese, grate them to simmer and soften.

If you don’t want to use sliced cheese, you could try cream cheese.

19. Avocado Toast Breakfast Sandwich

Is it overused? Maybe. Is it delectable? Absolutely!

I’m aware that there are many amusing memes ridiculing our love of avocado toast, but I don’t care. I’m going to eat it if it’s delicious.

Who doesn’t love creamy avocado? I like the color, texture, and flavor it pairs with Canadian bacon. I particularly like this with some crispy bread or a soft bagel.

20. Banana Pancake Sandwich

On camping vacations, I used to make them, although they were more like banana pancake tacos.

We’d fold a pancake in half, stuff it with bananas and crunchy peanut butter, and then dip the other end in syrup.

But if you can’t sit on a log, these sandwiches are a close second.

Make a delightful DIY plate with fruits, chocolate, and whipped cream.

21. Tomato and Spinach Sandwich

What I like most about this sandwich is that you can make it ahead of time.

It also only has a few simple ingredients and yet when you put them all together! Wow — what a taste!

It’s a super healthy recipe too with eggs, spinach and juicy tomatoes. When you’ve put the sandwich together, you can pop it into the freezer to enjoy anytime.
