Copycat Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast Sandwich


I'm one of those people that preparedness makes all of the difference.  If I have easy snack and meal choices ready to go, then I can resist the call of the drive through.  I've been enjoying baked eggs for a while now, usually with sauteed peppers and onion, on top of a whole grain English muffin.  When Dunkin Donuts came out with their new Power Breakfast Sandwich I immediately thought, I can make that at home!

I started with the same base baked eggs recipe that I've been using.  I do normally use whole eggs, but for this version to keep it true to the Dunkin Donuts one, I just used the whites.  I sauteed diced bell pepper and onion until they were soft, then let them cool.  I chopped up some baby spinach, discarding the stems.  I had lots of eggs on hand, so I separated them myself, but you could definitely use the store bought egg whites.

I beat the egg whites, added a bit of salt and pepper, the veggies, and then poured them into a sprayed muffin top pan.  Baked at 350 degrees, they should cook through in 13 to 15 mins, just keep an eye on them.  If you don't have one of those pans, you can also do them in a rimmed baking sheet, and then cut them into squares.


While they were baking, I made the sausage rounds.  I've yet to find commercially prepared sausage rounds that are big enough to fit in a breakfast sandwich, so I make my own.  I buy sweet Italian turkey sausage, remove it from the casing and form each one into a patty.   Cook it in a skillet over medium heat until brown and completely cooked through. I let mine rest on a paper towel lined plate.


Their version has cheese on it.  Sometimes I put it on, sometimes I don't.  I think it's great either way.  You can either store them in the fridge or in the freezer.  I do a combination of both.  For the freezer ones, I bag up the completed sandwich.  To reheat, I wrap the sandwich loosely in a paper towel and then microwave it at 50% for about 1 minute 30 seconds, then at full power for an additional minute.  Your times my vary.

For the fridge ones, I just bag the egg and the sausage together, I tried doing it with the sandwich thin also, but they got soggy.  If I want cheese, I sprinkle it onto one of the sandwich thins and put it under the broiler for a minute or so while I'm heating up the egg and sausage in the microwave.  You could also toast the sandwich thins and let the residual heat from that melt the cheese.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins. Thank you so much to Stacy for hosting and to all of the other #MuffinMonday bakers for sharing their recipes, be sure to check them out using the links down below!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
