I’m sharing #SausageFamily in my life as part of a Johnsonville sponsored series for Socialstars™
I am not a big breakfast person and go most days with no more than a cup of coffee and some buttered toast. My family on the other hand… well they require more morning fuel than that. They have been getting bored with my typical breakfast; scrambled eggs, turkey bacon and toast. I decided it was time to mix things up and try something new, yet not too complicated or time consuming. I made the easiest breakfast patty melts and wow… they were amazing! There wasn’t a crumb left on anyone’s plate and they were so easy to make.
All you need for this recipe is some English muffins, eggs, cheese slices, butter and sausage. I recently discovered these adorable and delicious Johnsonville Original Recipe Fully Cooked Breakfast Patties! Breakfast has never been easier with these Breakfast Patties, which are precooked and ready in 30 seconds!
The premium cuts of pork have all the big, bold flavors of Johnsonville without the fuss. There are so many fun ways to enjoy these patties and they have made busy mornings so incredibly easy when it comes to breakfast.
For this recipe you are going to warm the patties up on a frying pan, literally takes a minute! Take out the patties and set aside. Then pour one beaten egg in a pan and cook, forming them into a rough circle as they set up. Flip your egg to finish cooking on the other side.
Now it’s time to assemble the patty melt; bread, cheese, patty (we placed two patties on each sandwich), egg, cheese, bread. Melt some butter in a clean pan over low heat. Place your sandwich in the skillet and cook low and slow for a good 8 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is deliciously crisp. Add more butter to the skillet if the bread needs it (you don’t want the bread to be dry!) Slice your sandwich in half and serve.
Such a simple breakfast and the results… are amazing! I have been making breakfast sandwiches for years and I never thought to fry the bread in the pan to get a crispier bread.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe! Let me know in the comments below if you made these for your family and what everyone thought.
