Large Family Make Ahead Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches

My large family crew has found make ahead bagel breakfast sandwiches helpful for busy mornings. With a whole herd of homeschooling children and my husband and I working together to run the business and household, having frozen breakfast sandwiches ready to go is a simple solution for real life.

Make Ahead Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches

As a busy mom doing all the things, I love making breakfast freezer meals in bulk. I’ll take an afternoon or evening every few weeks and cook in bulk 20-30 freezer breakfasts to use as needed. That’s just what I did on my latest freezer cooking day where I made 25+ Make Ahead Breakfast Freezer Meals.

Kids love freezer breakfast sandwiches, but this homemade breakfast bagel sandwich is cheaper and healthier than store bought. They use simple ingredients that can be customized in different ways for the whole family.

How to Make Freezer Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches

This is a fun recipe to include your children in helping you with the meal prep. Lay a sheet pan and large plates out to begin an assembly line of ingredients.

  1. Open up the bagels and lay them out on a sheet pan.
  2. On the bottom half of each bagel, place one fried egg, 1 slice of bacon (fold it in half to fit it inside the bagel), and one slice of cheese.
  3. Wrap each breakfast bagel in plastic wrap.
  4. Place as many bagels as you can in a labeled gallon freezer bag. I can usually fit 6-8 bagel sandwiches at a time. You can also layer these with parchment paper in a large baking dish with a lid, or a foil pan covered with foil.
  5. Place in freezer for 3-6 months.

Frozen Make Ahead Breakfast Bagel Sandwich Ingredients

Like many of my recipes, this one is a bulk freezer meal recipe. You will need quite a few ingredients to get started, but then you will have plenty of sandwiches for a quick, hot breakfast in just a couple of minutes. Perfect for busy school mornings or weekends on the go.

  • 50 Pre-sliced Bagels -we used onion bagels for this recipe, but use whatever is your family’s favorite.
  • 50 fried eggs for the egg patty
  • 50 slices of bacon (bulk cook bacon in the oven)
  • 50 slices of cheesebagels and bagel sandwich ingredients

Customizing the Make Ahead Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches

A great thing about these make ahead breakfast sandwiches is all of the different ways that you can customize them. Maybe you only have one package of bacon or ham, or you have one child that likes egg bagels, while another likes everything bagels. That’s perfectly fine and makes this delicious breakfast even more fun.

Bread

You can use any kind of bagels that you like. You could purchase fresh bagels from a bagel shop, but those would be more expensive. There are many different varieties of bagels such as: whole wheat bagels, plain bagels, egg bagels, onion bagels, everything bagels or an asiago cheese bagel.

You can even use this recipe to make breakfast sandwiches with English muffins, or sourdough bread slices.

Cheese

You could make a spicy bagel sandwich by using slices of Pepper Jack cheese. You can also use Velveeta cheese slices if you like melty cheese, or you can go with classic American slices, Cheddar Cheese or even Provolone.

Meat

Customize the meats by using breakfast sausage, bacon or turkey bacon, slices of ham, or even Canadian bacon. You can even make an ultimate breakfast sandwich and layer all different kinds of meats on it.

Eggs

Some children may just be happy with plain egg sandwiches, so you may consider just making a few egg breakfast bagels with cheese and without any meat. You can also use scrambled eggs or egg whites.

Freezing and Reheating Instructions for Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches

The easiest way I have found for using make ahead breakfast bagels as a family meal is to set out a frozen bag of breakfast bagels the day before you need them. Place them in the fridge the night before so they are mostly thawed out by the next morning.

Your children can then unwrap the plastic and heat each breakfast bagel in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. If the middle is still a little cold, open up the sandwich to lay both sides open and heat for about 15 more seconds.

You may also use a toaster oven or air fryer to reheat them, just watch them closely so they don’t turn into a burnt or toasted bagel!

How to Serve Breakfast Sandwiches to the Whole Family

These breakfast sandwiches are much easier to make one at a time in the microwave. If you are making them for the whole family at the same time I suggest laying them out on a baking sheet or baking dish, and warming them up in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

FAQs for Make Ahead Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches

These are the most commonly asked questions that I receive about making these make-ahead bagel breakfast sandwiches.

How do you make the eggs so flat?

I like to bake my eggs in the oven on a sheet pan using this Baked Eggs in the Oven Recipe. It is much easier than frying up 50 eggs in a pan.

What kind of bagels work best?

Any bagel will work for this recipe, though Everything bagels with all the seeds will be messier when you take them out of the bag. If you are looking for something more convenient I would go with plain, egg, or whole wheat bagels.

Can Breakfast Bagels With Eggs Be Frozen?

Yes, breakfast bagels with eggs can be frozen as long as they are wrapped up in plastic wrap first. This will help prevent any freezer burn and keep everything sealed up nice and tight.

Notes

FREEZER MEAL DIRECTIONS

  • The easiest method I have found for using make ahead breakfast bagels as a family meal is to set out a frozen bag of breakfast bagels the day before you need them.
  • The following day you unwrap each bagel and heat it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. If the middle of your bagel is cold (this can happen depending on how close to fully defrost your bagel is beforehand) you can open your bagel to lay the middle exposed. Reheat for up to 15 seconds.
  • Micowave temps and times can vary. Starting with defrost bagels is easiest though. xoxo
