Ree Drummond has an idea for an easy Tex-Mex breakfast sandwich that can be stored in the freezer. Pioneer Woman star makes a batch and stores them in the freezer to reheat for the perfect morning snack.
Ree Drummond’s Tex-Mex Egg Muffins are the perfect breakfast idea.
Drummond demonstrated how to make Tex-Mex egg muffins in one episode. Pioneer Woman according to her, dedicated to “favorite ways to start the day.”
“Tex-Mex egg muffins are portable and easy to freeze,” she explained in the show’s intro. “I love mornings so here are four delicious breakfast ideas.”
She started with her Tex-Mex egg cupcakes, mixing breakfast sausage and chorizo in a bowl with her hands. Drummond divided the meat into six portions and formed patties out of it. She cooked them in a hot pan, noting, “They have so much natural fat in them that I didn’t add butter, oil, or anything else to the pan. I’ll just let them cook with the fat God gave them.”
Drummond beat the eggs and added chopped green chilies, heavy cream, salt and pepper. She poured the egg mixture into a nonstick skillet with butter over medium heat. “You don’t want to be in such a hurry with scrambled eggs. You just want it on medium heat so the eggs don’t burn,” the Food Network host said.
She flipped the sausages over, pressing them lightly to keep them from shrinking and fit perfectly on top of the English muffins.
After the eggs were “nearly cooked on the first side”, Drummond turned them over and turned off the heat. She cut the eggs into six pieces.

Drummond prepared breakfast sandwiches, taking a buttered and toasted English muffin and topping it with chipotle mayonnaise. She garnished the bottom English muffin with sausage, cheese and peppers and egg, and topped it with an English muffin lid.
“What a start to the day. You can serve them right away or let all the elements cool before building them and then just wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and put them in a plastic bag,” she explained. “And then you can freeze them for later reheating.”

Drummond has another breakfast item with her cowboy sandwiches.
She wrote about cowboy breakfast sandwiches in 2008 on her blog on The Pioneer Woman website. “The ingredients for a cowboy breakfast sandwich are the simplest: Texas toast. eggs. Cheese. Sausage. Mayo if you like,” she wrote. “This is what I love to cook for hungry cowboys, salesmen, visiting dignitaries and Orkin men. And it always brings smiles and groans that only hungry dudes are capable of. My father-in-law has been making them for years.”
Drummond revealed one thing that takes the sandwich to the next level. “The secret ingredient to this extremely simple and very sophisticated piece of art is Jalapenos in Jars: Fried Jalapenos in Jars,” she explained. “I learned this trick from a fast food chef.”
