I am a sucker for a good breakfast sandwich. Seriously, I could have one every single day and not get tired of them. When we lived in Georgia I would stop before work and get one daily. Now that I am living in Europe, that’s not really possible so I decided to make my own. Since it was all on me, I decided to make a healthy breakfast sandwich. I had no idea what a hit they would turn out to be. I want to share the recipe with you and hopefully your family will love them as much as mine.
I haven’t tried to freeze these sandwiches because I much prefer freshly made food but I might have to give it a try to make it even quicker for my morning routine. I suggest making the sausage patties the morning of though, because it wouldn’t make sense to cook a frozen sausage and then freeze it again.
Ingredients for your healthy breakfast sandwich:
- One Large Free Range Egg
- 2 All Natural (Fully Cooked) Sausage Patties
- One Slice of Cheese (I use Lactose Free)
- One Organic Multigrain English Muffin (Mine have Flax Seed in it as well)
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
- Cooking Spray
Grab your pan and spray it with your cooking spray. Fry your egg until it’s the way you like it. I like mine not too cooked and I also like to add my salt & pepper right after putting the egg in the pan that way it cooks into the egg.
I used this one egg frying pan but I also heard about using a mason jar lid to contain the egg so I gave that a try as well.
While your egg is frying then put your english muffin into the toaster. I only toast mine for about 2 minutes because I am not a burnt toast kind of person but again, this is totally your preference. While your english muffin is toasting and your egg is frying then you can choose to microwave or fry up your sausage patties. I like to use two patties simply because they shrink when they cook.
*** Side Note – I prefer to use the one egg frying pan over the mason jar lid method simply because it’s easier. I crack the egg and let it cook, plus it’s much easier to flip when the time comes but the mason jar lid does work. It’s definitely harder to flip and the egg isn’t as big as you can see below. ***
Once the english muffin is toasted put it on a plate and place the slice of cheese on the bottom. I place the egg on top of the cheese (this allows the cheese to melt a little better). Once the egg is on I cut the sausage patties in half and place them on top of the egg. I do this because it helps to cover the whole sandwich instead of only getting a bite or two of sausage. You now have a healthy breakfast sandwich which will taste much better than the drive thru version. Wasn’t that easy?
Give it a try and let me know what you think. I like to pair mine with a piece of fruit to make sure I get protein, carbs and fruit in order to fuel me for the day. I promise you won’t be disappointed! <3
