Freezing Egg Sandwiches

Happy New Year everyone.

Can you freeze homemade egg sandwiches ahead of time? If yes, how long can it stay in the freezer? Thanks.

Mayo does not freeze well. I say "no" to freezing egg salad sandwiches. IMHO they are too easy to make as needed, anyway. Egg salad should be good for about 3 or 4 days in the fridge.

I don't see why not - they sell them frozen all the time.

The ones around here that are sold frozen the eggs are scrambled. They seem to do just fine being microwaved and eaten, LOL.
If you are looking to make them and freeze them ahead of time, then it would make sense to fry up the bacon when you make them then assemble and freeze.

I freeze breakfast burritos: scrambled egg, slice of swiss, and two rashers of bacon wrapped up in a tortilla. I reheat it in my toaster oven.
