Bacon and Egg Uncrustables

 

Homemade peanut butter and jelly Uncrustables have become a staple in my kids’ lunchtime menu, so I thought, why not take it a step farther and make some breakfast-filled pockets as well? These egg-filled sandwiches are great for a busy morning, or breakfast on-the-go.

Bacon and Egg Uncrustables

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf soft sandwich bread (white or wheat)
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Sandwich Sealer

Directions:

Scramble eggs, cooked bacon, salt and pepper in a large skillet. Allow to cool, slightly. Spoon 1/4 cup egg filling onto a piece of bread. Top with a second piece of bread and use sandwich sealer to seal bread together and remove crust. Place in a toaster oven or broiler and toast until bread is golden brown. Serve.

Freezing Directions:

Prepare sandwiches as above but do not toast. Wrap each sandwich in foil and place in a freezer bag (or use empty bread bag). To serve: thaw in fridge. Place in toaster oven or broiler and toast until bread is golden brown and filling is hot. Serve.

Servings: approximately 8 sandwiches

    Thanks for the new filling idea! I recently started making my own PB&Js to keep in the freezer for quick lunches. I experimented and found I can use one of my larger cookie cutters backwards to seal the sandwiches:)

    This is neat. I think the directions need a little editing.

    Now that I have seen this idea, I have plenty floating around in my head. You could do many different things. My family loves bacon, but to cut down on calories/fat, you could do ham. What about doing tuna melts like this? Oh, loving this!!!

    I wonder if this would work well with a bit of cheddar cheese sprinkled over cooled bacon and egg mixture. May have to give that a try!

    I’ve seen the sandwich sealers at Walmart in the peanutbutter isle….one of those little things that hangs off a shelf as an extra thing…it was just a couple bucks,so now I think I need to go get one!

    A great use for the left over crusts so that they don’t go to waste is to create either plain or seasoned bread crumbs out of them or croutons for salads. :)

  8. Emily says:

    Do you leave the sandwich in the foil to thaw? Do you uncover it to toast?

  9. Claire says:

    About how long do you generally toast the ones that have been thawed? I kind of need a starting point.

    The bread does not get all moist? Did not know you could freeze bread. My son just loves pb sandwich.
