Great for busy mornings, these breakfast sandwiches can be made in batches and frozen for later! #tastytuesday
Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches
6 100% whole wheat English muffins 6 Eggs 1 lb. ground turkey 1 tsp. salt ½ tsp. black pepper 1 tsp. sage 1 tsp. thyme ¼ tsp. rosemary ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes 6 slices cheddar or Swiss cheese (optional)
1. Lightly toast the English muffins (use the broiler setting of your oven to cook them all at the same time).
2. Lightly coat a frying pan with butter, margarine, or canola oil. Cook the eggs until yolk is no longer runny. Alternatively, you can whisk each egg into a microwave safe dish and cook in the microwave on high for 1-2minutes (or until egg has cooked through).
3. Combine ground turkey, salt, black pepper, sage, thyme, rosemary, and red pepper in a bowl. Mix well. Form meat mixture into patties that are about the size of an English muffin (they will shrink when cooked). Place in a preheated skillet over medium high heat and cook until middle is no longer pink (about 5 minutes per side).
4. Assemble sandwiches by topping one half of each English muffin with a fried egg, one turkey sausage, and a slice of cheese (if using). Top with English muffin top.
5. Allow sandwiches to cool completely. Wrap each individual sandwich in plastic wrap and tinfoil and store in the freezer.
6. To cook, remove tinfoil and plastic wrap and wrap frozen sandwich in a paper towel. Microwave until warmed through, about 1-2 minutes depending on microwave strength or place in oven at 350 degrees until completely thawed and cheese is melted, about 8-12 minutes.

Our brains naturally shrink with age, but scientists are increasingly recognising that obesity – already linked to conditions such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease – may also affect the onset and progression of brain ageing.
From middle-age, the brains of obese individuals display differences in white matter similar to those in lean individuals ten years their senior, according to new research led by the University of Cambridge. White matter is the tissue that connects areas of the brain and allows for information to be...
