How To Store Leftover Sandwiches
Storing sandwiches in the fridge: When storing these breakfast sandwiches in the fridge they will stay fresh for up to 4 days in an airtight container or zip-lock bag. I like to wrap my sandwiches in foil before placing them in the fridge or freezer.
Storing make ahead sandwiches in the freezer: You will want to use the same method for the freezer and you do the fridge for these sandwiches. Wrap the breakfast sandwiches in foil then place several in a freezer bag. I usually need 2-3 bags for all 12 sandwiches depending on how many I store in the fridge. When stored in the freezer the sandwiches will stay fresh for up to 3 months.
Re-warming freezer sandwiches: There are two options for re-warming these make ahead sandwiches: the oven or the microwave. Personally, I like using the microwave option because it is fast, but either works great.
When re-warming in the microwave remove the sandwich from the foil and wrap in several paper towels. Warm for 30-60 seconds or until warm from the fridge. When rewarming the sandwich from the freezer, warm the wrapped breakfast sandwich in paper towels on the defrost setting for 3-5 minutes or until warmed through.
Alternatively, you can re-warm the breakfast sandwiches in the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place the sandwich on a cookie sheet or baking dish still wrapped in the foil. It should take about 10 minutes to warm from the fridge and 20-30 minutes if going from the freezer.
I hope you love these easy Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches for a quick breakfast on the go or easy last minute lunch or dinner. I love making a boat-load of these at a time and enjoying them for months. Both my son and I love these, so I hope your kiddos enjoy them too!
