Hello, hello! It’s almost the weekend, so I thought I would share one of our family’s favorite weekend breakfast foods. As much as we love to sit down to a hearty breakfast of pancakes, bacon and other goodies, the kids’ busy schedules don’t always give us time to do this. I like to make sure everyone is well fed, so if we’ve got a busy day ahead of us, we serve these Sausage and Egg Breakfast Sandwiches. Since these are pretty filling, I know I won’t have to worry about hungry tummies for a few hours.
Weekday mornings are rushed at our house, so breakfast is always simple. And honestly, I’m not really a breakfast person. In fact, I prefer to nibble fruit, cheese or whatever fairly healthy snacks I can find. But we’re on a different schedule on weekends, and having a hearty breakfast keeps me going throughout most of the day. And since the teens love sleeping in whenever possible, these breakfast sandwiches are usually more of a brunch.
This is almost exactly like a Sausage McMuffin, except it’s healthier and cheaper too! The kids and I hate runny yolks. Really. So we fry the eggs until the yolks are firm. I guess the term is technically over-hard, but it’s definitely no longer runny! We make enough for seven people, but you can easily adjust the amounts to fit your family.
- 7 English muffins, toasted
- 7 all-natural sausage patties
- 7 Eggs
- 7 Cheese slices ( I used both cheddar and provolone )
