Gourmet sandwich recipes are the answer on a hectic morning! You need to get the kids up, dressed, organized and out the door to school in half an hour and you need to be at work in an hour.  Breakfast is probably going to be a cup of coffee as you run out the door.  If you’re really lucky, you’ll grab a doughnut and eat it in the car on the way to work. The kids will get a cold bowl of cereal (again). Does this sound familiar to you?  I know it describes many of my mornings.  When I got really tired of a hurried coffee and doughnut on the way out the door, I’d make a quick stop at the drive through for breakfast.That gets expensive!

Herbed Cheese, Spinach, and Tomato Gourmet Sandwich

What if I told you that you could enjoy a delicious breakfast using gourmet sandwich recipes that are easy, delicious and healthy? What if I told you this could happen as part of your busiest back to school routine?

  • Myth #1: Gourmet sandwich recipes are expensive. They’re only expensive at coffee shops and diners.  You can make your own gourmet sandwich recipes for less than $1 per person.
  • Myth #2: Gourmet sandwich recipes are unhealthy. It all depends on what you put in them. Choose healthy ingredients and you have a healthy gourmet sandwich.
  • Myth #3: Gourmet sandwich recipes take a long time to make. Keep reading and I’ll show you how I do it in five minutes and still get the kids to school on time.
  • Myth #4: You have to be a chef or a really good cook to make gourmet sandwich recipes. If I can do it, anyone can do it.
  • Myth #5: My kids won’t eat gourmet sandwich recipes. You can customize any gourmet sandwich recipe to something your kids will love.
  • Myth #6: Gourmet sandwich recipes are only for lunch.  Not at all.  I have found several gourmet sandwich recipes I love for breakfast. My favorite is below.

So how can you get gourmet sandwich recipes that do all of this? I recently received a Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker that has shown me how easy this can be even on a hectic morning.  It allows you to create customizable gourmet sandwich recipes for everyone.

Making gourmet sandwich recipes

  • Place bottom half of the bread onto bottom plate (bagel, biscuit or English muffin)
  • Add precooked meats, vegetables and/or cheese (sausage, bacon, Canadian bacon, onions, peppers, tomato slices, American cheese, Swiss cheese, Provolone, etc)
  • Move the top ring down & crack an egg onto the cooking plate (fried egg, scrambled egg, egg whites, egg replacement)
  • Top with the other half of the bread.
  • Close cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove and enjoy

This is how I like to start my morning:

  1. Wow- that sandwich looks so yummy! I learned that Extra-large eggs or very cold ingredients may lengthen cooking time. Thanks for the chance to win! My hubs would love these breakfast sandwiches in the morning!
  2. I learned that you should never ever use the “SANI” setting when washing in the dishwasher. “SANI” cycle temperatures could damage your product. Ladyblueeyez1960 (at)(aol)(dot)(com)
  3. This product looks like a great time saver! I would put turkey bacon, lettuce, spinach, tomato, and deli sliced turkey on my gourmet sandwich...maybe some cheese too.
  4. My idea of a great breakfast sandwich may seem boring but fresh spinach, egg, veggie sausage and smoked gouda would be one I would like to try making. I like your idea of using herbed cream cheese too.
  5. I learned Hamilton Beach makes many high quality products, they stand behind their products and I can make a fantastic breakfast sandwich in only five minutes! Fantastic.
  6. I learned that you can make delicious, custom sandwiches quickly with little clean-up time. Also that the product was reasonably priced.
  7. That they aren't as expensive as I thought they would be and since I can't seem to win one I should just buy one lol.  I think it would be a great change for my boys to have a sandwich like this rather than the frozen ones I buy.  
  8. I love that all removable parts are dishwasher safe.  I'm all about easy and I definitely need a solution to skipping breakfast, as well as eliminating eating out at icky fast food joints on the weekends for breakfast.
  9. I learned that it'll be ready to eat in 5 mins or less...perfect for getting a healthy breakfast on the table on busy mornings.
  10. I learned that it is not expensive at all, only $30 and you can make a great breakfast any way you want it in only about 5 minutes!!
  11. I have one of these and I LOVE it. We even used ours to make grilled cheese! I love how customizable we can make the sandwiches too
