Whether it’s a busy weeknight, a 
friend’s decided to stay for dinner, or you simply don’t want to cook, sometimes you need something easy to throw together. The recipes in our series “Homemade Gourmet” take the thought and time out of cooking without sacrificing their flavor or gourmet appeal. These breakfast sandwich recipes from Jessica Merchant of How Sweet Eats will help you kick-start your mornings with Wolferman’s Super-Thick English Muffins!

There is nothing better than a good breakfast sandwich.

Except breakfast sandwiches on these Wolferman Super-Thick English Muffins. These English muffins are absolutely incredible  super thick and fluffy, with an abundance of nooks and crannies for jam, melty almond butter, or your favorite cheese. They’re thick enough to stand up to even the heartiest of toppings and sauces.

When it comes to breakfast, there is a big decision to be made: sweet or savory? These three takes on breakfast sandwiches cover all the bases so the deliciousness is at your fingertips. And if you like both sweet and savory, well, you’re covered! Plus, National English Muffin Day is April 23, so with breakfast sandwiches like these, you’re ready to celebrate.

Let’s start with the sweet version: a golden, toasty English muffin with a slice of melted muenster cheese on top. The other side is spread with creamy almond butter. It’s topped with sliced Harry & David pears, along with a drizzle of honey. It’s dreamy! There is texture and crunch, along with creamy sweetness, which means it’s full of complementary textures and flavors. It’s satisfying and delicious.

For a savory version, you can’t beat the classic of sausage, egg, and cheese. Start with a warm, toasted English muffin and throw on some cheddar. Add a smoked sausage patty and top with a fried egg. This is the ultimate comfort food that is also high in protein. While we’re calling it a breakfast sandwich, it could easily be dinner, too!

To mix it up with some sweet and savory flavor, we’re mixing bacon and jam. I know, we’re rebels. Crispy, crunchy smokehouse hickory bacon is combined with Harry & David Oregold Peach preserves, a melty slice of Havarti cheese, and a handful of spinach or arugula greens. This combo presses all the flavor buttons and is everything you want in a breakfast sandwich. You can switch up the jam flavors too, of course, depending on what’s in season or your preferences.
