Chipotle Egg Scramble Breakfast Sandwiches

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 4 sandwiches 1x



For the Sandwiches

  • 1 cup cheddar and monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, thinly sliced
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 raw bacon strips
  • 4 english muffins, cut in half

For the Chipotle Sauce

  • 1 chipotle in adobo, most seeds removed (can slowly add back in until you reach desired spicy level)
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9X13 casserole dish.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay bacon strips on top. Place in refrigerator until ready to bake.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese blend, and black pepper until combined.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Put both the casserole dish and the bacon sheet in the oven.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until eggs are set and bacon is cooked to desired crispiness. Put English muffins in the oven for the last 3-4 minutes to toast.
  6. While the bacon and the eggs are cooking, make the Chipotle sauce: Add Chipotle adobo pepper, Chipotle adobo sauce, garlic, yogurt and cilantro to the food processor and pulse until completely combined. Season with salt to taste and set aside.
  7. Remove bacon to a surface lined with paper towels. Cover with another paper towel and set aside.
  8. Using a knife or a cookie cutter, cut circles out of the egg scramble casserole that are about the same size as the english muffins.
  9. Assemble the sandwiches: Place one egg scramble circle on one half of a freshly toasted english muffin. Add a sprinkle of the remaining cheese and then spread a large dollop of Chipotle sauce on top. Add a couple bacon strips and garnish with fresh cilantro. Top with the other half of the english muffin and serve immediately.
