Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker

August 26, 2013

About a month ago, I got wind of the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker and thought it was the best idea ever. I reached out to Hamilton Beach to see if I could review it for So, How’s It Taste. Luckily they chose me as one of their breakfast maker brand ambassadors! I talked about this machine for weeks at work. You would have thought I’d won the lottery! (Psst…there’s a chance for you to win, too!)

So, how’s it taste?

I brought the Breakfast Sandwich Maker to work to put it to the test. English muffins, cheese, butter, sliced ham, and eggs. We made a build-your-own-breakfast bar. The machine is so compact, it was perfect for our tiny work kitchen. It would also be great for back-to-school since it’s doesn’t take up much counter space and in five minutes you can have a hearty sandwich. Much better than getting out a skillet to cook the egg, using the toaster oven, and then trying to time it all to be ready at the same time.

Be sure to check out the entire post for a fun video and a chance to win your own Breakfast Sandwich Maker!

It’s very easy and quick, plus the possibilities of sandwich combos are endless. I tried English muffins, biscuits, and Bagel Thins. I found English muffins work perfectly. I had to trim the Bagel Thins and I don’t think a regular bagel would fit. The biscuit worked pretty well, but mine weren’t quite big enough, so they got swallowed up by the egg.

You start by putting your bottom bread in the first ring, then add your toppings. I like to add cheese and then a meat like sliced deli ham or turkey sausage. A great tip for the cheese is to tear it in half so it fits better on the bread. Otherwise it drips over the side and gets messy. The meat has to be already cooked when you add it, too.

Now you flip the next panel down and crack your egg right into the maker. Yep, right in it! You could also scramble the egg first and pour it in, use egg beaters, or egg whites. You can make this sandwich really decadent or keep it healthy.

Top the egg with your bread and lower the maker lid. Now it’s only a five-minute wait until breakfast!

The possibilities are endless with how many sandwiches you can make. There’s a recipe that comes with the maker using frozen pancakes as the bread! You could also use this for some awesome savory or sweet sandwiches. From eggs benedict and mini pizzas to grilled cheese and a warm chocolate croissant, find more recipes from Hamilton Beach.

I made a video to show how easy it is to use the Breakfast Sandwich Maker. I hope you enjoy it. I had a lot of fun making it and apparently I’m quite the hand-talker!

  • Katie August 26, 2013 at 8:27 am

    I think I’d have to go with spinach, feta, tomato, and turkey sausage. Yum!

  • Sheli August 26, 2013 at 10:11 am

    I still work, but my husband is retired. But crazy me still thinks I need to feed him breakfast before I go out the door. This would be a God send at my house. I would make a English Muffin, topped with Swiss cheese, turkey and alfalfa sprouts and scrambled eggs. Now I am hungry, and no food to be found anywhere. 🙁

  • Tee August 26, 2013 at 10:29 am

    I would make a veggie sandwich and then maybe something sweet, like with bananas and nutella and cheese.

    Yum! My husband’s favorite thing is one of those mini bagels topped with cheese, egg, and a veggie sausage patty. I’d like to experiment. I’m thinking salsa and eggs on an english muffin would be tasty!

  • Tracy August 27, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    This would be a hit at my house! I would make egg and sausage, with cream cheese, jalapenos, and a touch of raspberry jam!
