Can I Use Biscuits Instead Of English Muffins

Yes, you sure can! Just make sure you precook you’re biscuits as the biscuit will take longer to cook. You can cook your biscuits in the oven or make them in the air fryer.

How To Keep Sandwiches Warm

If you are planning to make a bunch of sandwiches you can cook up a few, wrap in aluminum foil, and place in the oven at 200 degrees. 

It will help keep your sandwiches warm as you finish cooking up the rest! I found this to be a great way everyone gets a warm and hot sandwich. 

Just make sure to do aluminum foil or they will dry out fast.

Can You Meal Prep These Breakfast Sandwiches

Yes, this is a great recipe for meal prep! Cook sandwiches as directed and then wrap in aluminum foil. Place in an airtight freezer bag or sealable container and place in the freezer. 

These breakfast sandwiches will freeze up to three months. Thaw in the fridge the night before for a quick reheat. 

Or reheat from frozen. I find reheating in the oven the best texture. But you can do microwaves if in a hurry. Just remove foil and heat till warmed through. 

If you are new to the air fryer I think you will find this recipe so simple to do! I love cooking up breakfast like this, cause it is so easy and the cleanup is a breeze!
