These little grilled cheese breakfast sandwiches make it into our breakfast rotation about once a week. I like them for lots of reasons. First, because I’m a huge grilled cheese fan and the world seems right when we eat them for breakfast. Second, I race my kids when I make them. I try to make these sandwiches before they can get dressed, make their beds and say their prayers. I almost always win! If I lost I figure out how to cheat! I gotta win! Finally, I love them because I can grill enough of them for my whole family on my griddle, no other pans necessary. Hey, I don’t like doing dishes and once the kids are at school I’m stuck with the dishes.
Here ya go…Fry some eggs on your griddle (no picture). While the eggs are frying, butter the insides of the a split English muffin. The insides will become he outsides. Stack each muffin with the buttered sides together (in the middle). Top the unbuttered side of one slice of English muffin with a slice of cheddar cheese.
Pile some deli ham on top of the cheese.
By now the eggs should be done frying. Stack them on top of the ham.
You guessed it, one more slice of cheese.
Your grill should still be heated to medium heat from frying the eggs. Set the sandwiches, buttered side on the outside, down on the griddle.
Grill until golden brown and cheese is melting. Flip sandwiches and grill the other side until golden.
There are many days in our lives when the boys simply don’t have time to grab breakfast before they head out the door. These sandwiches are great for an on the go breakfast. (Look my babies chubby hands are not going to be chubby for much longer. Boo!!)
This sandwich was for me. Since I’m not a pansy, like my boys, I used pepper jack cheese. Yum! It was just the right amount of spicy to get me going in the morning!

Just stumbled on your website via a link on Facebook posted by: Chocolate, Chocolate and more. How creative to flip the english muffins over! I love the versatility of grilling these with different fillings. I made these this morning for my family, and what I added to ours was; bacon, ham, eggs, provolone & american swiss cheese along with sauteed spinache. Oh my were these delicious! Served with a side of fresh fruit and oven fried pototoes. YUMMM! Great recipe! Makes me wish I had thought of that! Thanks for the recipe and ideas! Will be making these again, and again and again… Happy Baking!

I’m so glad you found me! It’s so fun to switch these sandwiches up by adding lots of fun and yummy things. Since my boys are huge meat and cheese lovers I know they would love your version! And I would love it if I could get them to eat spinach! Thanks for sharing!

My family lives off sandwiches! They eat them for snacks and just all through out the day when they are home… so they would dig these! I LOVE English muffins as it is! Pinned (=
Have a happy Tuesday, Amy!

Sandwiches are perfect for families! They are quick and can be easily adjusted to fit everyone’s special taste’s! Since our chickens are laying tons of eggs right now these are perfect!
