10 Breakfast Sandwich Recipes That Are Fast and Healthy

Need a grab-and-go breakfast that’s fast, healthy, and delicious? Skip the drive-thru, and make one of these breakfast sandwich recipes instead…

Most of us don’t have time for an elaborate breakfast.

That’s why we force down microwaved eggs and oatmeal, or (shamefully) grab a pastry or two from the coffee shop.

It doesn’t have to be like that, though.

With breakfast sandwich recipes like these, you can whip up delicious and nutritious breakfasts in 10 minutes or less.

Even better, most of them store well in the freezer, so you can work them into your meal prep and just heat one up every morning.

Enjoy!

Ham & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich with Mango Chutney

Serves 4

If you want to liven up a ham and cheese sandwich, try adding a different condiment than mustard and mayo. Mango chutney will add a sweet note to this savory sandwich, like the pairing of pineapple and ham but more mellow.

Make this one vegetarian by using soy ham slices or tempeh bacon. For carnivores, go with Canadian bacon which is usually uncured but can be smoked for added flavor.

Pumpkin Breakfast Sandwich

Serves 1

This is breakfast like you’ve never had it before, and you might even think it’s the best breakfast sandwich yet. If you love having a pumpkin spice latte in the morning, may as well have a pumpkin sandwich to go with.

Just mix together the pumpkin puree with maple syrup and olive oil for an addictive spread. Make this as is for a vegetarian breakfast sandwich, or swap out the vegan sausage patty for chicken apple sausage instead.

Healthy Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Serves 4

You don’t have to eat breakfast sandwiches out of a box. These are easy to make at home, freeze, and reheat whenever you’re hungry. Start by making a simple egg casserole, which hardly takes any time in the kitchen.

Whisk some eggs with milk, and fold in the fillings you want like broccoli and cheese. After you bake the egg casserole, slice it up for the English muffin sandwich filling, and freeze for quick breakfasts.

Breakfast Pita with Egg, Feta & Spinach

Serves 2

Pita isn’t just for shawarma and falafel. You can use the flatbread to make a great breakfast sandwich like this one with eggs and spinach. Other filling ideas include tasty combos like sausage and scrambled eggs.

Or, turn the pita into a breakfast pizza by heaping on shredded mozzarella, making a nest of fresh spinach, and then cracking the egg in the center to bake until the whites are set and the pita’s toasty.

Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

Serves 4

Since most breakfast sandwiches have eggs and cheese, it’s hard to imagine one that can be vegan. A lot of egg substitutes for baking, like flax and chia seeds, won’t work here.

This recipe gets creative with chickpea patties and spicy cashew cheese. It’s so delicious you’ll want to try this no matter what diet plan you’re following.

Want a bagel for breakfast, but don’t need to consume so many carbs? This recipe has the compromise you need.

Low-Carb Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Serves 1

It seems like a waffle sandwich would be carb overload. But you can have this indulgent brunch anytime with macros like this.

Green Goddess Egg Sandwich with Crispy Prosciutto

Serves 4

If you love green goddess salad dressing, why not put it on more than kale and spinach? This English muffin breakfast sandwich has the expected ingredients, like eggs and prosciutto.

But since breakfast sandwiches tend to be sans condiments like ketchup and mayo, they can be dry. This one solves the problem with plenty of Greek yogurt dressing, complete with basil, lemon, garlic, and more.

Croissant Sandwich

Serves 2

How can you make a healthy croissant sandwich? Start with whole-wheat croissants, and load them up with fresh veggies.

The croissant itself will make this a high-fat breakfast sandwich, so you may want to use egg whites and forego the avocado. In that case, try apple slices with gouda or dried figs with gorgonzola.

Paneer Breakfast Sandwich

Serves 4

There’s way more to Indian food than curry and samosas. And if you love paneer cheese, you’ll want to take a bite out of this Indian breakfast sandwich.

Just mix everything together, fold in the paneer, and sandwich it between springy kulcha bread. To go the extra mile, make your own paneer, a fresh cheese that’s similar to cottage cheese.

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
