Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker – Review and Giveaway

I first set eyes on this nifty little kitchen gadget at the BlogHer Food conference earlier this year. Isn’t it cute?

The folks at Hamilton Beach sent me one to try – and one lucky reader can win one too (see below). But, first, the details.

This gadget is designed so that you can make your own breakfast sandwich – presumably healthier than the drive-thru version, gluten-free, and whatever-else-free you’d like. It’s a multi-layer design – fill the bottom, add an egg (if you’d like and you aren’t allergic to eggs) on the shelf, add the top, then set a timer for five minutes.


This is the kind of gadget my kids would have loved to have in the house when they came home from school as teenagers, usually ravenous.

It’s possible to use the sandwich maker without eggs, but since it’s designed to be used with eggs, I decided to make my first sandwich with an egg.

I used an Udi’s gluten-free bagel, sliced chicken, avocado, and egg.


The first thing I learned is that you shouldn’t overstuff it – it needs to be able to close easily. My bagel was a bit large for the machine, hence the slight burning on the top. A standard English Muffin (or the English Muffins from the recipe in Learning to Bake Allergen-Free) would be perfect. What you want to put inside is up to you!

This is a lazy Sunday morning breakfast maker, an after-school snack maker, or simply an anytime sandwich maker. And it doesn’t take up much space – the base measures about 6-inches by 7-inches.


To enter the giveaway:

1. Leave a comment here about what kind of sandwich you would make.

Entries close at midnight on Sunday September 8th. The winner will be announced on Tuesday September 10th. Be sure to come back to see if you won!

I've not yet had a glutenfree english muffin that I actually like, so I think I'd use it along with frozen, premade homemade GF waffles as the "bun", with egg and some sort of cheese.

I would love to have this system to make bacon and egg sandwiches for myself and my daughter in the morning for breakfast. It would make things quick and easy.
