Starbucks Breakfast

I love Starbucks, I love a good Starbucks breakfast sandwich, in fact, I actually have their gold card, going every day and having breakfast with my coffee get’s expensive. You may have tried my version of their pumpkin bread or even their banana bread. Now it is time for a savory menu item.

What I love about this sandwich is the ciabatta bread is thick and chewy. The smoky goodness of bacon is combined with Gouda cheese for a wonderful way to wake up your taste buds.

While playing around with this recipe I also tried a few things you may want to try. For a real treat, you may want to butter the bread and toast it under the broiler for a moment or two before assembling the sandwich. You may also want to add a couple of pieces of ham, or even swap out the cheese for Swiss or even Cheddar cheese.

One thing I love to do on the weekends is to prepare food for the week. You can make a few of these sandwiches and reheat them during the week. This way you can save time and money by preparing your own sandwich at home.

    Um… I think I have had that sandwich in Starbucks, corner of Kingsway and Boundary in Vancouver Canada… What I do notice is they only make so many & when they run out will say they’ve run out and offer you another type of breakfast sandwich (They have a few kinds). What I would like is the recipe for their California? Chicken Wrap. It has artichokes and peppers in it. I am also looking for a recipe for a sandwich we got at Cheesecake Factory in Waikiki, HI, USA while on vacation. It was a shrimp or prawn club with tomato and avocado. We ordered it a few times when we were there, but now they have taken it off their menu. They also have a really good California avocado sandwich and a good Cuban sandwich. We also liked the cheese stuffed wontons. My husband REALLY likes they mojitos. I think they are a bit sweet, but if we could recreate theirs he would be very happy. We like all the food at Roy’s too…tried a bunch of different dishes, never been disappointed. I’m not giving you work… it’s your site after all! LOL. It’ll be nice when we can go out again and actually relax and have a nice meal. Oh… I like IHOP’s Chicken Florentine Crepes too. Great site… I’ve only just found it and am gleefully adding recipes to my folder to try. YUM! Some of them aren’t the copycat ones… some are yours!

    Question, do you microwave after it’s assembled? Can you make in advance and freeze and then pop out, thaw and nuke?

    • Stephanie

      You could enjoy the sandwich at the temperature it was prepared at. Or you could heat it up if that is how you enjoy your sandwiches. Yes, you could make these in advance and thaw, and nuke if desired.

    My son has autism and now needs 3 of these everyday! I’m happy he’s finally eating eggs, can’t wait to try this at home. Thank you for the recipe!!

    This recipe is missing a few ingredients. The Starbucks sandwich has Monterey Jack and parmesan in/on (?) the egg patty in addition to the gouda.

      You’re an idiot, I just ordered two of these sandwiches today for me and my daughter. They’re right there in the front.

        What is your problem? It may be that YOUR Starbucks doesn’t sell this sandwich, but why bog down this post with your ignorance? You’ve been corrected multiple times. Drop it.
