Recipe Swap- Sausage Breakfast Sandwich
I participated in my very first recipe swap this week. I contributed a cake batter pancake recipe, and received this recipe for sausage breakfast sandwiches.
I'm not usually a big breakfast sausage fan, but I enjoyed this sandwich. It was nice to get out of my comfort zone. Thanks, Sweet Beginnings!
From Sweet Beginnings
1/2 lb Ground Pork or Breakfast Sausage
1 Tbsp maple Syrup
1 Tbsp grape Jelly
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices Applewood smoked bacon, cooked & crumbled
4 slices cheese (your choice!)
4 mini croissants (or English Muffins or Biscuits, if you prefer)
1. Mix pork, bacon, maple syrup, jelly, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, thyme & shredded cheese together in a bowl. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
2. Form sausage mixture into four 1/2 inch patties, big enough to fit on your biscuit. Heat a skillet to medium-high and cook patties until there is no pink in the middle, 3-5 minutes per side.
3. Meanwhile, spray another skillet with cooking spray and cook your eggs over-medium. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
4. If using biscuits, bake according to package instructions or recipe directions. Otherwise, toast your English muffin or Croissant, and spread jelly or butter on each side if you prefer. Then layer with your sausage patty, egg, & cheese.
