Notes

Cooking Tips
Cook the bacon in the oven. This is the easiest and less messy way to cook back. It also speeds up the process when you want to make large batches of these make-ahead breakfast sandwiches. Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. The cook in a 375-degree oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until crispy. Drain on a paper towel before continuing with the recipe.
Date the breakfast sandwiches. It’s unlikely these sandwiches are going to sit for long in your freezer. Regardless, it’s helpful to keep track of how old freezer meals are.
Take the frozen breakfast sandwich out to thaw overnight in the fridge. This reduces cooking time in the microwave and will prevent any dried-out bread or eggs.
Wrap in a paper towel. Whether frozen or slightly thawed, remove the sandwich from plastic wrap and wrap it in a paper towel. This helps keep the English muffin from drying out.
Add a cup of water. This is important. I know this might seem weird but, it works. Put a coffee cup filled with water in the microwave with the breakfast sandwich. As it cooks, the steam from the water keeps the English muffin from getting stiff and chewy. When I started making these sandwiches, I hated that the English muffin got hard after cooking in the microwave. This water trick plus the paper towel alleviates that problem.
