I love breakfast sandwiches. When I’m on the go in the morning, I’ll always stop at my local fast food restaurant and grab a breakfast sandwich to power me through the morning. However, my love of these tasty, handheld breakfast items doesn’t stop at ordering them. I love to make them, too! I’ve been making sandwiches for breakfast for years. I’ve used biscuits, brioche, and everything in between, and I love to stuff all my breakfast favorites in between that bread. My family loves it, too. When my kids lived at home, they were always excited to have these in the morning. I’d even make extra so they and their friends could have them as afternoon snacks later on. They’re absolutely delicious and so easy to make!
