I adore Christmas morning. I adore the sounds of glee from the boys, as they open their gifts and search their stockings. I adore the time we get to spend all cozy in the living room with our family. I adoreÂ sitting on the couch with my coffee in hand, just watching the magical fun of Christmas morning.
While I love cooking and making holiday food, I think I love sitting on the couch enjoying the moments more. Which is why these Christmas Morning Breakfast Sandwiches are the BEST. They can be made ahead of time and reheated when you’re ready to eat!
They are also freezer friendly – if you really want to make them in advance, you can freeze them (details below). I made these the other day, while I was in the kitchen doing some holiday baking. And now I don’t have to worry about breakfast on Christmas morning. Boom!
Also, the little splash of red and green in the sandwich also gives it fun Christmas flare.
Here’s what the sandwich looks like:
- English muffin top
- Slice of Borden American or Pepperjack cheese
- Cooked sausage patties
- Sauteed red and green bell peppers
- English muffin bottom
I love how the cheese melts down and holds the sandwich together!
Cook the sausage. Saute the red and green bell peppers.
Assemble the sandwiches (as bulleted above).
Wrap each sandwich in foil.
Keep in the fridge for 1 day, or freeze.
Warm up in the oven, wrapped in the foil – until warmed through. (To save time: you could also defrost in microwave without the foil, then wrap in foil to reheat in oven.)

For this Perfect Christmas Morning Breakfast Sandwich, I’m using the American sliced cheese. I think that the Pepperjack sliced cheese would pair wonderfully with the sauteed bell peppers – and would give it a nice zip and zest as well!
