Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 (12-oz) pkg whole wheat English muffins
  • 12 oz thinly sliced smoked turkey
  • 6 slices pepper Jack or Monterey Jack cheese
 

Directions

1. In a medium pot, cover the eggs with 1-inch cold water. Heat to a boil on high. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 8 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water until cool, then peel.

2. Meanwhile, split the English muffins and lightly toast. Thinly slice the hard-boiled eggs. On bottoms of English muffins, layer the turkey, egg, then cheese. Replace tops of English muffins. Tightly wrap individually in plastic. Freeze for up to 1 month.

3. To reheat, thaw slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove from plastic and wrap in damp paper towel. Microwave 3 minutes, until hot in center and cheese is melted.
 

Notes

Putting together these hearty sandwiches ahead of time and freezing them for later makes them both effortless and lighter than their fast-food counterparts.
