Make-Ahead Egg Sandwiches

I have been making breakfast recipes this week that I can store or freeze for a quick on-the-go healthy breakfast when I start work. Today I made healthier versions of Egg McMuffin sandwiches that you can freeze and just reheat in the microwave on a hectic morning. I used egg whites instead of whole eggs and 100% whole wheat english muffins. I had to use american cheese slices today because that was all we had in the fridge, but usually I would use cheddar cheese slices because I feel like that is less processed and tastes better, in my opinion. I topped them off with a slice of ham instead of bacon. I calculated that it is about 235 calories for one sandwich. Not bad at all! Here is the Recipe:
