Turkey Sausage Egg White Flatbread made with turkey sausage, egg whites, cheddar cheese and spinach. They make a quick breakfast; especially if you're on the go.
I've mentioned before that I'm not a big breakfast eater. I have a handful of go-to items and when I'm heading out in the morning, I tend to just stop at Dunkin Donuts and get their Turkey Sausage Egg White Flatbread to eat on the go.
I figured if I had to eat something, this wasn't the worst choice I could be making at under 300 calories each and my entire bill would come to about $5. Not a habit I wanted to get into when I had plenty of good, healthy food at home.
Then I started thinking about how easy it would be to make these sandwiches at home and what I found was pretty astonishing.
What's the difference?
- Made four sandwiches in 20 minutes
- Cost $2.06 less per serving
- Had fewer calories, fat, sodium, and sugar
- Didn't have all of those additives that you can't pronounce
|Cost per Serving||$2.99||$0.93|
THIS was now a NO BRAINER! I made four of these sandwiches, wrapped them and placed them in the freezer. When I knew I was going to go out in the morning, I pulled one from the freezer, popped it in the microwave and it was ready and hot in minutes.
A toaster oven would probably be even better so the bread gets toasted a bit, but I don't have one of those and didn't want to wait for the oven to heat up.
Now there are no excuses for me and for you either for that matter. 😉 The flavor combinations are endless too. If you don't like turkey sausage, add bacon or your favorite combination of vegetables instead. ~Enjoy!

Brilliant idea to use a muffin top pan. I just ordered one. I was not smart enough to think of it but can't wait to try some out.
Thanks Christie. It actually fits really nice on the rounds and worked perfectly!

Never thought to use sandwich rounds like this before, I have a feeling that these turkey , sausage and egg flatbreads would make a great breakfast/light lunch. Definitely a recipe I will be recreating.. thanks for sharing it!
Thank you for stopping by Thalia. They are perfect for breakfast or lunch and very filling. I made these to mimic the fast food version; however, I think next time I'll just make some with my favorite vegetables.
Wow this is one brilliant idea!!
I'm so glad you like it Ami. Thanks for stopping by to let me know!

I love the idea of making a batch of these so that you always have a healthy breakfast that's ready in minutes! I didn't have a muffin top pan so I made these in a 6-cup jumbo muffin pan and they came out great (they just needed an extra 5 or 10 minutes baking time)! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe- I'm excited to include it in The Natural Pregnancy Cookbook!
Oh good, I'm so glad it worked in another type of pan. I'll add a note to the bottom of this post to let others know as well. Thank you for including the recipe in the cookbook, can't wait to see it....though those days are long gone for me! lol 🙂
