If you like fast and easy breakfast recipes, you are going to be wild about this Gluten-Free Breakfast Sandwich! It is so versatile, so feel free to play with it and make it your own - this is one of those recipes that you should think of as a guide. (A delicious one!)
Are you a breakfast person?
I almost always wake up and want to eat within the first hour or so. BUT, in general, I'd say that I rarely eat breakfast foods.
I make one exception to this. I am wild about breakfast sandwiches - like today's Gluten-Free Breakfast Sandwich.
I'm not sure why I crave a good egg sandwich, but rarely eat eggs on their own.
I think it is the way everything comes together — crispy bread and bacon, fluffy eggs, and, of course, cheese. (Because everything is better with cheese.)
Give these gluten free breakfast sandwiches a try and I think that you will love them as much as I do.
Ingredients for Making Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwiches
- Egg: I used a large egg; this recipe isn't particularly fussy so use what you have on hand.
- Half and Half: Milk or heavy cream works well too.
- Salt and Pepper: As always, adjust the amount to your personal preferences.
- Bacon: If you are concerned with your fat intake, turkey bacon is a good option.
- Spinach: Optional, but a great way to sneak a little green into your morning.
- Hot Sauce: Use your favorite brand and adjust the heat to just how you like it. (Or leave it off if spicy food isn't your thing.)
- Bread: I am a fan of using a gluten free English muffin when I make breakfast sandwiches, but a bagel or bread work just fine.
- Cheese: Play with this and use what you like!
- For an extra kick of flavor, sprinkle on some fresh chopped chives just before serving.
- Use breakfast sausage in place of the bacon.
- Mix up the cheese! When I am craving a flavor-bomb, I will substitute shredded smoked gouda.
- Add a few slices of avocado or tomato slices to the mix.
- Omit the cheese and instead spread 2 tablespoons of pimento cheese on the English muffins.

- Breakfast Sandwich Maker or Sheet Pan
These Gluten-Free Breakfast Sandwiches can be made, excluding the spinach, up to a day ahead of time.
You can also freeze them wrapped individually. Again - omit the spinach and add it when you are ready to serve. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
