Having gluten-free breakfast sandwiches prepped and ready to go in my freezer makes our busy mornings just a little bit easier. A perfectly flavored egg, placed on top of breakfast sausage patty, with a slice of melty cheese, between two pieces of toasted bread - all amazing gluten-free - all components delicious. Create this easy breakfast recipe today!
How? Let’s start with the cooked egg. I tried various methods how to create a perfect egg patty. Let’s start with the simplest way, egg beaters. I picked up a carton at my local Walmart. How could it be any easier than shaking and pouring? I discovered this is a great option if you want easy but not the most delicious option.
Next, I went for a healthier breakfast sandwich option, egg white patties. Remember the healthy Egg White Delight McMuffin McDonald's had once upon a time? It feels a bit like an oxymoron, healthy and Mcdonald's, in the same sentence. This option worked if you added additional flavors, as in chopped-up bacon and green onion tops. If you want a healthy gluten-free breakfast sandwich option, this one works!
Finally, I tried whole egg versions. These methods were the tastiest options. Creating two options: a whole egg cracked into the pan so you can see the york and the egg white and a scrambled option with additional flavors. Both are delicious and work beautifully for gluten-free breakfast sandwiches and got rave reviews from my whole family.
Ingredients for Scrambled Egg Patties
- Eggs - Use cage-free, free-range, farm fresh, or whatever is your favorite!
- Fully Cooked Bacon - Use leftover bacon or buy the fully cooked version for a shortcut.
- Green Onion Tops - Great onion flavor without the onion aftertaste. Also, Low FODMAP!
- Butter - Butter makes everything better.
- Kosher Salt - Salt adds great flavor to eggs!

Crack a dozen eggs into a medium bowl.
Whisk until fully combined, and you can no longer see the white and the yoke.
Spray the whoopie pie pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle each dwelling with some Kosher salt.
Pour the beaten eggs into each dwelling on the pan until almost to the top. Do not overfill.
Next, chop up your bacon and green onion tops in a fine dice. Using kitchen shears is a great option to make this task quick, and you can do it right over the eggs in the pan to save yourself a step.
Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until the eggs are fully cooked.
Variations of Egg Patties
- Egg Whites - Purchase a carton of pure egg whites or separate the yoke and egg white yourself.
- Egg Beaters - Easiest option. Just open and pour.
- Whole Egg - Crack them into a bowl and whisk.
Breakfast Meat Options
- Homemade Gluten-Free Breakfast Sausage Patties - Make your own in the same whoopie pie pan you made the egg patties for a perfect ratio of meat to egg! Or you can buy some Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage.
- Canadian Bacon - It is a perfect size!
- Turkey Bacon - Flavor of bacon, without all the fat.
- Deli Ham - Thinly sliced deli ham layered on top of the egg patty.
- Thick Cut Bacon - Perfect crispy bacon to add that salty flavor.
- Cottage Bacon - A meatier bacon option that is a perfect size.
- Turkey Breakfast Sausage - Amazing flavor without the fat.
Gluten-Free Options for the Bread
- Gluten-Free English Muffin - I like the Glutino option or that one magical month when Aldi has gluten-free English muffins in stock.
- Gluten-Free Bagels - This is my favorite option. Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free bagels are my favorite brand.
- Gluten-Free Bread - Conveniently always smaller than normal bread, so it fits your egg patty perfectly. Again Canyon Bakehouse's Country White Bread is good. For any low FODMAPers watch the ingredients closely on Canyon Bakehouse gluten-free bread options, they sneak agave syrup and honey into their breads.
- Skip the bread completely, and use two egg patties to hold in your meat and cheese!
- Cheddar Cheese - Classic taste.
- Pepperjack Cheese - For a bit of spice with a great melting factor, especially if you go with the hot gluten-free breakfast sausage.
- Swiss Cheese - Paired with turkey sausage or turkey bacon is delicious.
- American Cheese - Melty goodness.
- Omit it entirely for a dairy-free option.
Additional Fresh Ingredients as Topping Options
- Avocado - Add a healthy fat.
- Arugula or Baby Spinach - Add some additional greens to your breakfast.
- Thinly Sliced Peppers - Add a bit of crunch and spice to your breakfast sandwich. I love to use the mini peppers!
- Add your favorite toppings! The sky is the limit.
How to Meal Prep the Sandwiches
You can serve all 12 egg patties to everyone right away if you are having a sleepover party or have a large family! However, most of us must store the extra egg patties and make the gluten-free egg sandwiches one or two at a time.
Need another meal prep breakfast option, try frozen breakfast burritos! They are also gluten-free and a convenient all-in-one breakfast option! Need something sweet? Add mini chocolate chip muffins to your savory breakfast meal prep.
How to Freeze the Egg Patties
Cool your egg patties completely. You do not want to have any warmth because that will cause moisture. Next, cut wax paper or parchment paper into small squares roughly the size of the container cover. Then place the egg patty, with the meat choice and a square of wax paper, in the freezer-friendly container. Repeat this until the container is full. These will last in the freezer for three months or in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
How to Construct the Egg Sandwich
Remove the egg patties and meat stacked container from the refrigerator or freezer. Heat up the egg and meat on a microwave-safe plate until heated all the way through.
Next, take your bread choice and place it in the toaster or toaster oven. Ready to construct your egg sandwich? Grab your warmed-up egg and meat, and put it on your toasted gluten-free bread choice. Add your slice of cheese, if you want, and any additional toppings. Eat it right away and enjoy all your hard work!
You can use a muffin tin. However, the egg patty will be thicker. Another option is a metal mason jar lid, but the egg will stick, and cleaning up will not be fun. I would purchase the whoopie pie pan and use it to make the egg patties, gluten-free breakfast sausage, and for dessert, Twinkie cake. One pan, so many options!
The frozen egg patties will last up to three months in the freezer in a freezer-friendly container and up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
