Review: Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker

The Kitchen Appliance You Thought You Didn’t Need

My older son had been eating toast with butter every morning for breakfast and it was stressing me out. Toast and butter is not a breakfast, it’s what they give you in prison.

On the weekends and on my husband’s day off we’d make him eggs but during the course of the week mornings are too hectic so I bit the bullet and bought a Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker because it seemed like something my son would be able to do himself and put an end to the toast with butter. So determined was I to get this breakfast sandwich maker that I went to four stores. Apparently this handy-dandy kitchen appliance is in high demand, and for good reason.

It rocks.

It’s as easy as it claims to be. I put in a whole wheat English muffin, top it with whatever we have on hand–I’ve used shredded cheese, goat cheese, avocado, tomato, prosciutto, and red onion to date—put the middle section down and crack the egg onto it, top with the other half of the whole wheat English muffin, put down the top lid and voila! In five minutes you have a breakfast sandwich.

Taking it out is super simple and the whole process is easy enough that my son can make his own.

And the clean up? A snap. Simply remove the centre portion, wash it and you’re done.

I bought mine on sale for $19.99 and we have used it every single day since, oftentimes more than once. It’s a definite buy in my book.

p.s. This isn’t sponsored at all. I drove around to four stores to find it and paid for it with my own money.
