Looking for a quick, hearty, breakfast on the go for your family that takes less time to prepare than driving to the “McPlace”, for half the price? Look no further. You can save even more time by cooking the sausage patties ahead then freezing and reheating them.
Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
1 log Jimmy Dean Regular breakfast sausage (or other sausage log of your choice)
Sliced cheddar or American cheese
Ahead of time – slice Jimmy Dean log into equal pieces. Layer the slices with waxed or parchment paper, place in Ziploc bag then freeze. Of course, if you are going to prepare the whole log today, skip this step.
To make the sandwiches: Place desired number of sausage slices in skillet and turn on to medium heat. Cook sausage until each side browned and meat is cooked through. Around 3-4 minutes per side. Once done, turn off the heat and place cheese slices on the sausage to melt.
Meanwhile, scramble eggs (one egg makes two sandwiches), and cook in an egg skillet on medium high heat. (I like to spread my egg out in the pan and make more of a pancake so it stays in the sandwich better during consumption). Remove from heat. Toast English muffin and place cooked sausage and egg on top. Wrap sandwich in parchment paper or aluminum foil to steam the bun a little. Distribute to happy hands as the leave the house.
The “McPlace” charges $2.71 for a sausage muffin with egg. Interestingly, the sausage muffin with no egg at the same place is actually on the their Dollar Menu. I know the price of eggs have gone up but $1.71 per egg?
This sandwich will run you around $1.33, depending on your personal tastes. This figure was calculated using farm fresh organic eggs from the Hen Pen in Napa, Thomas’ English Muffins and Tillamook cheese. You could easily put this on your own “Dollar Menu” at home by using store brands for your ingredients.
