My slightly more grown-up version of a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich is now a family favorite. My kids all love breakfast foods. In fact, some days I feel like their love for breakfast foods is all that they can agree on.
The key to this and all real food recipes is the ingredients you use. I prefer to use organic eggs. I think they really do taste better. I can only assume that the diet that the chickens eat produce a better-tasting egg. Local or organic sausage is preferred. We mostly eat whole wheat bread, but I love this sandwich with a nice sourdough bread. Although processed American cheese was my favorite as a kid, I now prefer an organic cheese. Whether you buy organic or not, make sure you are buying cheese and not a “cheese product”. The ingredients in “cheese product” are mostly oils. Yuck! If I’m eating cheese, I want the nutrition of dairy to go along with it. And yes………we REALLY like cheese in our family.
Easy Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast (Or Anytime) Sandwich
Ingredients: (for one sandwich)
- Sausage Patty
- Colby Jack Cheese (Sliced)
- Bit of Butter
- 2 Small Slices Sourdough Bread
- Cook your sausage. Set aside on a paper towel to drain off the grease.
- Grease your egg poacher with a bit of butter.
- Break your egg into an egg poacher.
- Add a dash of salt and pepper.
- Poach your egg. You can poach on the stove or in the microwave. I have a microwave poacher that I like for a quick breakfast.
- Toast your bread.
- Assemble your sandwich: Put egg, sausage, and cheese on one piece of toast. Top with the second piece of toast.
I told you it was an easy recipe. If it was difficult, I couldn’t call it an “easy” recipe now could I? Real food doesn’t have to be complicated. That’s what I love about cooking real food recipes. Most real food recipes let the ingredients speak for themselves. Delicious!
