We've been making these sausage and egg sandwiches for breakfast since way back when. I've just updated the post with newer instructions and pictures!
How to Make a Breakfast Sandwich with Sausage, Eggs and Cheese
Since the sausage takes the longest to cook, you'll want to cook them first. You can make air fryer breakfast sausage or fry them on the stove.
Next, fry the eggs. My kids hate runny yolks, so we cook the eggs until the yolks are nice and firm.
You can also bake the eggs if you're cooking a bunch. Personally, I don't like the texture, so the stovetop method works for me!
Then, toast the English muffins. You can also toast the muffins in the air fryer or bake them in the oven. Whatever works best for you!
Place a slice of American cheese on the cooked egg. Now, it's time to assemble the sandwich.
Place the cooked sausage patty on the bottom half of the English muffin. Top it with the fried egg.
Top the egg with cheese if you haven't done so already. Finally, add the top of the muffin over the cheese. Easy peasy, right?!
Want more flavor? Butter the muffins and add salsa, hot sauce, ketchup or BBQ sauce. My kids have to have either ketchup or BBQ sauce on their egg sandwiches!
Freeze for Later
You can freeze the breakfast sandwiches for later. Just wrap them in freezer paper or wax paper and store in a freezer bag. To reheat, wrap them in a paper towel, and heat on the reheat setting or defrost in the microwave.
