My Homemade version of Starbucks Turkey Bacon Sandwich
Now, I know some of y’all are giving me the side eye and wondering what on earth has come over me to have me whipping up turkey bacon anything. Of course, pork has always been an important staple in the South.
There is no denying it, friend, I love my pork bacon and I love pork sausage. Sometimes, however, we have to incorporate other things into our diet. Maybe because the doctor is after us, some folks don’t even eat pork, and others just prefer something that seems a bit healthier. Perhaps it is your new year resolution to eat a bit healthier and this might be a good option for you.
Whatever the reason, Y’all, I can promise ya that if I think these are good then they are. Absolutely delicious!
Oh, and just to clear the air, I am also team whole egg! We love eggs and buy fresh local farm eggs. You can’t get better, but I really do enjoy just the egg whites in this sandwich. So, if you are on the fence as to whether or not you might like this type of breakfast, try it! You might be surprised at how good it is.
Healthy Breakfast Sandwich
What to serve with turkey bacon breakfast sandwiches?
Breakfast sandwiches are hearty on their own, but if you like a bit of variety then you can certainly serve them up with sides. Here are a few tasty options to consider:
Avocado Slices or Guacamole
Feel free to mix and match these side dishes based on your preferences and the occasion. Whether you want to keep it light and healthy or indulge in some Southern comfort, there’s a side that’ll suit your turkey bacon sandwiches just right!
Here Is What You Will Need to Make Them
Here are the simple ingredients that you’ll need to make the best turkey bacon egg white sandwich:
- English Muffins: we really love English muffin breakfast sandwiches. They just seem the perfect size for the morning meal. Use regular or whole wheat to suit your preference. You could certainly make your breakfast sandwich with bread if you prefer.
- Liquid Egg Whites: eggs whites are what you typically find on this type of sandwich at local coffee shops, but you can use whole eggs if your want to. Your sandwich, so make it how you like it.
- Cheese: I used slices of Provolone for these sandwiches. Other great options for cheese would be white American, low fat white cheddar, swiss cheese, or other favorite cheeses you may have on hand.
- Turkey Bacon: I prefer to use uncured breakfast meats. Enjoy as many slices as you want, but I plan two per sandwich.
Optional Ingredients and Additional Toppings
I chose to add a few leaves of baby spinach and a pinch of cracked black pepper to my sandwich, which was really delicious.
You may like a bit of mayonnaise or some type of aioli spread, lettuce, peppery arugula, tomato slices, red onion, or avocado slices on your sandwich. The possibilities are up to your and your sandwich cravings.
Griddle Toasted English Muffins
First things first, grab yourself some English muffins and get them toasting. The favorite way that I like to toast the muffins is on a hot griddle over medium heat with a little sizzling butter. I think that makes them wonderful!
You can also toast them up nicely in your toaster oven or using a countertop toaster.
Using the griddle, I find that I can get more toasted at a time, so it is a bit of a time-saver for me.
You want ’em nice and toasty, with a little bit of crunch. Once they’re ready, transfer the tops to your assembly area, and flip the bottom over to get the cheese all melty.
Place a slice of cheese on each bottom section and it will take just a minute or two to melt just the right amount for this easy breakfast.
Air Fryer Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich
How to cook Turkey Bacon?
Next up, it’s time to get that turkey bacon sizzling!
Y’all, if you want crispy turkey bacon like I do, then the easiest way and the best way is to cook it up in your air fryer.
Cooking bacon in the air fryer, y’all, is a game-changer! It’s quick, easy, and you get that crispy, golden goodness without all the mess and splatter.
I love turkey bacon occasionally because it’s leaner than regular bacon, but it’s still got that crispy, smoky goodness that we all crave.
Cooking turkey bacon on a hot griddle is also a great way to get it crispier than other methods, but I still think the best results come from air frying it.
Place the turkey bacon slices in a single layer (You can overlap them slightly, but don’t stack them on top of each other) in your air fryer tray or basket. Give them a really light mist of cooking spray. I like duck spray.
Then it is into the air fryer to cook up until nice and crispy. The cook time may vary according to the model of appliance you have. I find the twelve to fifteen minute range to be perfect in my Cuisinart air fryer oven.
I do turn the turkey bacon slices halfway through cooking as well. This step helps to make sure both sides get that delicious crunch.
When it is done, transfer the slices to a paper towel lined plate to allow any excess grease to drain away.

The next step is to get those egg whites cooking. Before we do, I should probably mention to those who may be newer to cooking a meal like this, is that all of these things can be cooking at the same time.
So, for the egg whites, spray some nonstick cooking spray into the slots of a muffin top pan (it is my favorite pan for this and delivers those copycat eggs from Mickey D that fit perfect on a muffin sandwich).
Fill the sprayed sections with the egg whites. If you like you can add just a little bit of water to the empty spaces so your pan doesn’t burn. Completely optional.
If you feel that you will have more of a steady hand by placing the muffin top pan on a baking sheet to transfer in and out of the oven, then please do.
The egg whites go into a pre-heated oven to bake until done. So easy, Y’all!
Breakfast Sandwich with Baked Egg White
Alright, friend, you’ve got your crispy air fryer uncured turkey bacon, your perfectly toasted English muffins with melty cheese, and your baked egg whites ready to go to assemble the sandwiches.
Take the bottom cheesy half of the muffin and top it with any optional toppings the place a slice or two of the turkey bacon on, then the cooked egg and top with the toasted muffin top.
It is time to enjoy your delicious breakfast sandwich and it only took around 15 minutes to create this delicious morning meal.
English Muffin Sandwiches with Air Fryer Turkey, Baked Egg White, and Provolone Cheese
I don’t know about y’all, but I can’t resist that ooey-gooey cheese, the smoky turkey bacon, and that perfectly cooked egg white all nestled between those toasty English muffins.
It’s comfort food at its finest, and it’s the perfect way to start your day with a big ole smile.
Turkey Bacon Egg and Cheese
When you take a bit of this sandwich, you will agree that this is a delicious breakfast! Making your own breakfast sandwiches always makes them all the more better.
If you like to meal prep, you can make extra for another time. Just wrap the extra sandwiches individually with plastic wrap, place them in an airtight container or food storage bag, then freeze until needed. You can reheat them by wrapping in foil and heating in the oven, or wrap in paper towels to re-heat in the microwave.
