Breakfast Sandwiches You Can Eat On The Go

It's been said that breakfast is the most important meal, but so often it's instead treated as an afterthought in our busy lives. More times than not, we simply grab whatever we can get our hands on as we rush to work or school or wherever we may be going. These circumstances tend to lead to some uninspiring breakfast choices — but we're here to put an end to that. 

It's hard to go wrong with the classic bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. But no matter how perfectly delicious something, we all crave a change of pace every once in a while. Maybe that includes enjoying a riff of one of our favorite fast food breakfast sandwiches or adding in some southwestern flair with a breakfast burrito. Whatever your meal of choice, all of these breakfast sandwiches are sure to satisfy your craving, whether you're eating at home or on the go.

A copycat Burger King Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Croissan'Wich recipe for a healthier take

Burger King may be best known for its burgers of course, but the chain offers a wide sampling of breakfast sandwiches. Included in this lineup is the Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Croissan'wich. The meal comes with all the makings of a perfect breakfast sandwich — but with all the trappings of a very unhealthy start to your day, as well. This is where making the Croissan'Wich at home using our own copycat recipe comes in. 

Not only is making the sandwich at home quicker — it takes just 10 minutes — and more cost effective, you're also riding the dish of any excess fats and additives typically found in fast food. Assembling your homemade Croissan'Wich is a piece of cake. Cook your egg and pre-made sausage patty, and throw a slice of American cheese on the latter. Fold the egg and place onto the bottom half of the croissant, top with the sausage patty and melted cheese, and then the top half of the croissant. Eat your Croissan'Wich right away or take it with you out the door for a tasty start to your day.

A copycat Starbucks Southwest Veggie Wrap recipe could help you save

For many of us, Starbucks is our on-the-go coffee spot. So what better place to get inspiration for an on-the-go breakfast sandwich. This Starbucks southwest veggie wrap copycat recipe delivers a delicious breakfast that tastes like the real thing but requires no wait time and far less money.

These Starbucks southwest veggie wraps are surprisingly hearty and contain eggs, black beans, red potatoes, cotija cheese, jalapeño, whipped cream cheese, and salsa. But don't be intimidated by the ingredient list — this breakfast wrap is easy to put together. To assemble, spread whipped cream cheese to one half of a tortilla and add jalapeño to the other half. Add roughly one cooked egg and one tablespoon each of roasted potatoes and black beans. Top with salsa and cotija, and roll the wrap up tight for easy transportation.

These copycat Starbucks Impossible breakfast sandwiches will replace the drive-thru

Taken at face value, it may sound like making the Starbucks Impossible breakfast sandwich at home is, well, very difficult at the least. But fear not, the "Impossible" name come from the Impossible brand of plant-based "sausage" used in sandwich. In fact, the copycat recipe is quite the opposite of impossible — it can be done in less than 20 minutes.

Once you have your veggie sausage patties, gather up eggs, ciabatta rolls, slices of cheddar cheese, and get started. Bake your eggs in a muffin tin in the oven for 12 minutes. While that's going, bake the veggie sausages and rolls on separate pans for about eight minutes. When everything is done, stack the sausage, egg, and cheese in between the ciabatta roll and dig in!

A classic breakfast burrito recipe you should know

We up the breakfast sandwich ante with this recipe for a breakfast burrito. This Mexican-inspired twist on a breakfast staple is hearty, flavorful, and packed with veggies, so you don't need to feel guilty about eating it. The main players in the recipe are scrambled eggs and hash brown patties. Filling out the rest of the burrito are sautéed bell peppers and onions, shredded cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, and cilantro — unless you're in the anti-cilantro camp. If that's the case, you can omit the herb or substitute with Thai basil or parsley. The burrito can be prepped, cooked, and ready to go in just 30 minutes. If you're eating on the go, wrap it in some foil to keep it warm.

This low-carb cloud "bread" breakfast sandwich is a dream recipe

If you're looking for an elevated take on the traditional breakfast sandwich, this is the recipe for you. A cloud bread breakfast sandwich is one elegant-sounding dish, and fortunately it has the taste to match its lofty name. Cloud bread isn't technically bread. It contains no flour or leavening agent. Instead, it consists only of eggs, cream cheese, cream of tartar, and kosher salt. The end result is a delicate, yet flavorful baked good that tastes just as good as traditional bread.

Let's not forget about the rest of the sandwich, though. This cloud bread breakfast sandwich includes eggs, pork patties, and cheddar cheese. If you're feeling ambitious, feel free to add hot sauce, honey, and avocado slices. 

A 5-ingredient copycat McDonald's Sausage McMuffin with Egg recipe

The McMuffin is the gold standard of fast food breakfast items. Maybe your an originalist egg McMuffin connoisseur, but we enjoy the savory and hearty sausage McMuffin. And now a less-expensive, homemade version of the sandwich can be yours thanks to this 5-ingredient copycat McDonald's sausage McMuffin with egg recipe. Last year, McDonald's did the food world a great service by releasing the recipe for its sausage McMuffin with egg so we can eat our breakfast on the go, with no pitstop needed. 

There are no secret ingredients in this recipe — just an English muffin, egg, sausage patty, American cheese, and butter. To get started, toast the English muffin and cook the sausage patty for a handful of minutes. To get the egg in a perfect circular shape, grease the lid of a canning jar and place in small sauté pan. Crack the egg into the lid, pour some water into the pan (but not the canning lid), cover the pan, and cook for three to four minutes. All that's left is to assemble the sandwich and enjoy your breakfast!
