Copycat Starbucks Impossible Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

What could be a greater pleasure than putting on a favorite album or a fascinating podcast, pouring a nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, and spending an hour in your kitchen cooking up a meal for the memory books? Not much. But when it's 7:30 in the morning, you've got kids to get to the bus, 50 new emails crowding your inbox, a meeting to prep for, and a 45-minute commute before you even get to the office, that kind of culinary pleasure is just not in the cards. (Also, probably best not to drink wine in the morning.)

For those times, there is this Starbucks Impossible Breakfast sandwich copycat recipe. "This is a great one to prep for the week," says chef, food writer, and registered dietician Kristen Carli. "I wrap a few in foil and on busy mornings. I can quickly grab, unwrap, and zap in the microwave on the way out the door." Cooking and assembling the ingredients needed for this copycat Starbucks Impossible Breakfast Sandwich will take only about 15 minutes. Heating the sandwich up before you hit the road will take about one minute. So do yourself a favor and spend 15 minutes in the evening so you can spend one minute on those weekday mornings when every minute counts.

Gather your ingredients for this Starbucks Impossible Breakfast sandwich copycat recipe

The best thing about this Starbucks Impossible Breakfast sandwich copycat recipe is that most of the ingredients required have already been prepared and cooked for you. With the exception of the eggs, you're really doing more warming than cooking. You'll need six eggs, six ciabatta rolls, six slices of cheddar cheese, and six veggie sausages (we like the ones from Beyond Meat, but there are a ton of options out there).

To make the sandwich vegan, "non-dairy cheese works well," says Carli, adding: "I would suggest one that melts well, like Chao." (And on the other hand, you can make this sandwich with a meat sausage, too — just make sure to cook it properly if you do.)

Bake the eggs for this Starbucks Impossible Breakfast sandwich copycat recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and get the eggs out of the fridge to let them warm up a bit. Then, spray six of the cups of a standard-sized muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.

Crack the eggs into the six prepared muffin slots and then, using a fork, break up the yolks. Bake the eggs at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Carli says that just about the "only mistake would be if the eggs were undercooked. Be sure that the eggs are not jiggly." If they need more time, continue the eggs baking in two- to three-minute intervals.

Heat the sausage patties and bread for this Starbucks Impossible Breakfast sandwich copycat recipe

Meanwhile, as the eggs bake, place the veggie sausages on one small sheet pan and the ciabatta rolls on a separate one — this is so you can pull the bread out if it's starts to brown.

Heat the sausages and bread in the oven for eight minutes while you're still cooking the eggs. And if you are using veggie sausages that are frozen, you should put them in earlier — they may need the full 12 minutes to warm properly.

Assemble the Starbucks Impossible Breakfast sandwich copycat recipe

Remove all Starbucks Impossible Breakfast sandwich copycat recipe ingredients from the oven and assemble the sandwiches by layering one sausage patty, one egg, and one slice of cheese on each roll. Add a dash of pepper if you like, and then you can chow down.

But better yet, you can also wrap the sandwiches in foil and pop them in the fridge. Tomorrow morning, zap a sandwich in the microwave for one minute (on a plate, without the foil on, of course!) and enjoy a hot, like-fresh sandwich as you hit the road.
