I kind of have a thing for DIY, in fact it runs in the family. From home renovations to crafts we love to DIY what others choose to buy. Now thanks to Hamilton Beach we can take DIY’ing to a whole new level by DIY’ing the humble breakfast sandwich. I was sent The Breakfast Sandwich Maker from Hamilton Beach to try out on my family of DIY’ers and give you my thoughts and I have a few about this product for sure!
First of all I love that my kids or I can have a balanced breakfast in just 5 minutes. , and it really is 5 minutes if you prepare the vegetables in advance. We rush around in the mornings so I thought that it would be the perfect time to test out the speed of the Breakfast sandwich maker. While the unit was warming up I pulled all of my sandwich makings out of the fridge, cut the peppers and sprayed the cooking plates. When it was hot I built my sandwich according to the instructions and just like that I had a delicious, nutritious meal that even my normally hard to feed pre-teen would eat. In 25 minutes I had all 5 of my kids fed and time to spare. It’s not something I want to do every day, but on chilly mornings it will be nice to have the option of sending the kids off with a protein packed hot breakfast.
Another thing I love is that I can DIY a custom sandwich according to my kids preferences. Some of the kids favourite combinations have been honey ham, sliced cheese, and red pepper – while I prefer ham, Havarti, and sprouts. If you like the big M’s version of breakfast sandwich pick up some of the Maple Leaf Sausages rounds and pre-cook them the night before so you can just pop one on in the morning. If veggies are your thing, skip the meat and pile on the green. You could even take your egg and add some cut up peppers or onions and make it a mini omelet. If you are cooking for a crowd speed things up by using the upper and lower rings to cook the eggs and toast the bread/buns in the toaster. Just make sure it’s hot or you’ll have egg all over.

Clean up is easy and quick and it’s small enough that storing it is a breeze. This would be the perfect addition to a dorm room kitchen or even for long family road trips. With the sandwich maker and a cooler full of food you can cut some costs when travelling and staying in hotels. I know that this will be going in the last-minute box when we make the big move across Canada.
Pick up the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker at your favourite retailer or online for around $29.99.
