The Ultimate Sausage Breakfast Sarnie

I found these really nice sausage patties in the grocery store the other day.  They were my favourite brand of Sausages, Heck Sausages, and they were shaped like hearts!  What better to serve your sweetie pie with in the month of love than a breakfast sandwich made with a heart shaped sausage patty!

To be honest we didn't really have these breakfast sandwiches for breakfast.   We had them for lunch . . .  kind of like brunch I guess.  They went down a real treat.   You want to make sure you have a really good sausage meat to use for these . . .  when the star of the dish is the sausage, you want it to be a good one.

The egg part is small omelettes . . . beaten eggs together with minced peppers.   So tasty.  I have stainless steel cooking rings so I cook them in them.  Just pop the greased rings into a greased skillet and divide the beaten egg mixture between them, cover and cook, until almost set.  Uncover and remove the rings, flip em over and they are the perfect size for popping between two halves of a toasted English Muffin along with that sausage patty.

A nice slice of cheddar gets melted on top of the sausage pattie.   Seriously good.   Yummo!  But that's not the best part  . . .  nope . . .

I caramelized some onions to spoon over top of the whole thing.  FABULOUS!  I just used some butter and slow cooked them until they were golden brown and meltingly tender . . .  adding some seasoning and a bit of honey for the last five minutes or so of cook time.

Served up with potato wedges, this was one very wicked Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch/Supper sandwich, I kid you not!  Try and fine one of these in that place with those yellow arches.   Impossible.   This is the best!  And so simple to make too.  Todd quite simply adored it . . .  okay . . .  I did too.

*The Ultimate Sausage Breakfast Sarnie*
Serves 4

This is a sarnie nobody can complain about.  Serve with ketchup or brown sauce and some wedges on the side for a full meal deal! 

Four thick pure pork sausage patties
(I used heck)
For the eggs:
6 large free range eggs
2 TBS whole milk
1/4 each of a red, green and orange or yellow pepper, finely chopped
(Should come to about 1/2 cup altogether)
fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
a quantity of honey caramelized onions (see below)
4 slices of cheddar cheese
4 English muffins toasted

Cook the sausage patties in a non-stick skillet until nicely browned and cooked through.  Place a slice of cheese on each. Set aside and keep warm.   Beat together the eggs, peppers and seasonings.  Take 4 (3 1/2 inch) cooking rings and spray them with cooking spray.  Place them in a clean skillet you have already sprayed with cooking spray.  Divide the eggs between the rings.  Cover and cook over medium heat, until almost set.  Remove the rings and flip over to brown the other side.   

Toast your muffins on one side only.   Place the eggs on the bottom halves.  Top with an egg round each, then a sausage pattie and one fourth of the caramelized onions.  Place the top halves of the muffins on top and serve immediately.

To caramelize onions:
Peel and slice two large onions into rings.  Melt a knob of butter in a pan.  When it begins to foam add the onions.  Season with a bit of salt and pepper.   Cook, over medium low heat, stirring frequently for about 15 minutes, until golden brown and caramelized, adding a teaspoon of honey for the last five minutes or so.  They should be meltingly tender.

Note - I was not paid or given free sausages to write this.  I quite simply love the sausages I used and they are my favourite.  You might like them too.
