Grain-Free Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

When I was younger, I absolutely loved sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwiches. Definitely not the healthiest thing to eat, but man were they tasty!



I feel like I’ve really created a delicious bun recipe, which we shared not too long ago, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to recreate my beloved breakfast sandwich in a healthier way.



Once you have the buns made, making the breakfast sandwich is quite easy! All you need is sausage, a fried egg, and cheese if desired and tolerated.



For the sausage, I used pastured ground pork, and seasoned it with our Breakfast Blend. From there, I formed the pork in to very thin patties. I knew the pork would shrink when cooked, and I wanted it to fit the buns well. Even still, the sausages came out a tad too small, so I would make the buns on the smaller side.



I pan seared the sausages in a cast iron skillet until they were cooked through, and then topped my toasted bun with sausage, a fried egg, and some cheddar cheese.



These breakfast sandwiches were so tasty! They are a really fun treat when you want to change up your breakfast routine.

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Prepare the buns according to the instructions for that recipe linked above.
  2. Place the ground pork into a medium sized mixing bowl, and add two teaspoons of Breakfast Blend.
  3. Mix the seasoning into the meat, being sure to combine as evenly as possible.
  4. Form the meat into thin patties, about the size of your palm, but much thinner. You will get around 6 patties from one pound of pork.
  5. Place the patties on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the fridge until you are ready to cook.
  6. Once the buns are finished cooking, allow them to cool. While they are cooling, you can fry up the sausage patties.
  7. Pan fry the sausage patties until they are fully cooked through the center, about 10-15 minutes.
  8. Slice your buns in half, and toast prior to plating.
  9. Once toasted, place a sausage patty on the burger bun, and top with a fried egg, and cheddar cheese if desired.
