Homemade Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

If you have never made your own sausage at home, you are missing out! This recipe makes a sweet sausage, with a little bit of a spice kick that is perfect in this Breakfast Sandwich.

A good breakfast sandwich can be made with just about anything and really comes back to your own personal preferences. For me, the main factor for an epic breakfast sandwich is absolutely the texture. A good sandwich should include juicy meat, a nice toasted, nearly crispy bread and something with a good crunch to it, like crispy bacon, or a hash brown square, like this one.

It should also, always, always, always, include a runny egg. Personally I like to use Egg Rings to keep them nice and uniform, but if you don’t have any, don’t worry. A simple frying pan will work just fine.

What you will need

    Sandwich Ingredients
  • 4 grated potatoes
  • 4 English Muffins
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Canola oil

  • Sausage ingredients
  • 1.5 pounds ground pork
  • 1 T fresh sage
  • 1 T fresh thyme
  • ½ T red pepper flakes
  • 1 t fennel seeds
  • 1/8 t nutmeg
  • 2 T maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat griddle to about 400F and oil liberally

2. While the griddle is heating up, grate potato and place in a cheese cloth. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible

3. Place potato on griddle and spread out to 1/8-inch thickness in a large square. Add more oil as needed and season liberally with salt and pepper on both sides as it cooks.

4. Cook until a crust has formed on the potatoes. This can take upwards of 30 minutes

5. Once crust has formed, slice the hashbrowns into squares approximately 3-4 inches wide. Flip and continue to cook until crispy and glassy. You will know when it is time to flip the potato, when it can be easily flipped, without falling apart.

6. In a large bowl, mix all sausage ingredients until just combined.

7. Form sausage into patties and place on the griddle. Cook on each side until juices run clear.

8. Remove the sausage from the griddle and allow to rest for a few minutes while you cook the remaining elements.

9.To cook your eggs, use egg rings if you have them, otherwise fry on a hot skillet. Season your eggs with your favorite seasoning. I used my El Chupacabra rub (Grab yours here) Erika please link.

10. Assemble your sandwich with a thick layer of your favorite barbecue sauce, a sausage patty, crispy hashbrown square and a fried egg.

Smoked Turkey and Leek Pie

If you aren't overly familiar with leeks, they are kind of like a combination between onions and cabbage. It's sweet like fried cabbage, but has a very subtle oniony flavor. This dish pairs the leek with poultry for a subtle umami flavor and bacon for that hit of salty, fattiness that makes it pop. Wrap that all up in crispy pastry-You are in business!
