Breakfast. Some say it’s the most important meal of the day. In fact, studies have found that people who skip breakfast are more likely to have problems with concentration, metabolism, weight, and cardiac health. Furthermore, it is the first meal many have after waking from a night’s sleep. A traditional breakfast includes items such as eggs, porridge, bacon and sausage. However, it can truly be served at any time of day.
Breakfast foods vary depending on geography. Breakfast includes things like cereals, fruit, vegetables, eggs; and a beverage such as tea, coffee, milk or fruit juice. Pancakes, waffles, sausages, French toast, bacon, sweet breads, and toast with butter and/or jelly are pretty common. The preparations and servings are virtually endless. We hope to explore many breakfast preparations in the coming months and year — from all over the world.
Today, we are going to share our version of the Breakfast Patty Melt Sandwich.
- 2.5 Oz Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage
- 2 Eggs
- 1/3 Cup Freshly Grated Mild Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Tbsp Mayonnaise
- 1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
- Butter Top White Bread
- Kosher Salt
- Fresh Ground Pepper
- Olive Oil
- Roll the Sausage into a ball and then flatten to a very thin patty. Add a tablespoon of Olive Oil to the frying pan and add the Sausage Patty over medium to high heat. Cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes depending on thickness. Remove and place on a plate. Clean the pan.
- Add a tablespoon of Olive Oil to the frying pan and add 2 lightly beaten eggs to the pan. Treat it like a small omelet. Fold it into roughly the size of the sausage patty. When it's cooked to desired fluffiness, remove from pan and place over the top of the sausage patty.
- On the White Bread, add a liberal layer of Grated Cheddar Cheese. Place the Sausage Patty/Egg on top of the cheese layer and cover with other piece of bread.
- Brush a thin layer of Mayonnaise on the top piece of bread. In the frying pan — on medium heat — place the entire sandwich Mayonnaise side down. Brush another thin layer of Mayonnaise on the, now top side, piece of bread and cover. Cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes or until cheese is visibly melting into the pan. Yum!
- Cut in half and serve.
