Starbucks Impossible Breakfast Sandwich made with a vegetable based sausage patty, egg and cheese on a Ciabatta roll.
I kept hearing about this new Impossible Breakfast Sandwich from Starbucks so when given the opportunity, I took a chance to see what it was all about.
The closest Starbucks is about 15 minutes away located inside of a Target store so I really don't go very often. As we were driving our youngest daughter to her college campus in Virginia, we stopped to get some breakfast before moving her in. My husband had tried this sandwich before and said it was good so I decided to try it myself.
It was REALLY good! So good that I decided to make it myself once I got home. Breakfast sandwiches like these are great to make ahead and freeze so you can just reheat throughout the week for a quick meal.
How do you make the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich?
This recipe makes six sandwiches and you'll need stone baked rolls, vegetable sausage patties, eggs, and Cheddar cheese. I wanted to reduce the calories and fat a bit so I used these new rolls from Pepperidge Farm.
You purchase them in the freezer section; then bake them yourself so they're soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. They're also a bit smaller than the Starbucks Ciabatta rolls.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a six section muffin tin with cooking spray; then break open a large egg into each. Take a fork and break the yolk and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Add a quarter slice of cheese to the top of each egg and bake for another 2-3 minutes.
While the eggs are cooking place the rolls on one side of a sheet pan and the sausage on the other side. Place the pan in the oven and cook for 10 minutes.
To help ease the egg out of the tin, run a plastic knife around the edges; it will help make it pop out easier!
How do you assemble the sandwich?
Now it's time to assemble the breakfast sandwich. Cut open each roll, place the cooked egg on the bottom half along with one sausage patty; then place the top on the bread. Repeat for all six sandwiches.
Can the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich be frozen?
Absolutely! Once the sandwich is cooled, wrap each one in aluminum foil; then seal in an airtight freezer bag. Take out the sandwich the night before you're ready to eat it and allow it to defrost in the refrigerator. Reheat in the foil wrapping in a 400 degree F oven for 15-20 minutes.
You can also reheat in the microwave; however, bread doesn't heat well in a microwave so I recommend removing the bread, placing the egg and sausage on a microwave safe plate, heat for 60-90 seconds (depending on the strength of your microwave); then placing it back on the bread afterwards.
This is a great way to make yourself breakfast for an entire week or if you like a variety in the morning, just take out what you need.
What is the nutritional information?
Though eating a breakfast sandwich can sustain hunger for longer periods of time due the protein content, they also can be loaded with calories and fat. My version of the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich tasted exactly like the Starbucks version; however, it was a bit smaller.
Don't get confused though because though it was smaller in size, it was still super filling! When comparing our sandwich to Starbuck's, here's what we found:
This nutritional information was gathered by My Fitness Pal using the specified brands and products. As you can see our version has less calories, fat and sugar than the restaurant version and tastes identical.
My family loved this copycat Impossible Breakfast Sandwich. The best part about making this at home is you can add whatever type of cheese and vegetable sausage patty flavor you like and you'll save money. In fact, I just ate another one this morning for breakfast they're SO good! ~Enjoy!
