How to make breakfast sandwiches

  • Place the sausage patties in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook until sizzling, then flip.
  • Add half slice cheddar cheese to 4 patties (you can also add cheese to all 8 if you prefer). Cover the pan and let them cook until the cheese is melted.
  • Meanwhile, toast the English muffins.
  • Spread some pesto on the bottom of an English muffin. Add 2 sausage patties and top with additional pesto and the top of the muffin.
  • Serve immediately.

Variations

  • Want to use fresh sausage? Grab a 1-pound Jimmy Dean Sausage Roll and slice into 8 equal pieces. Cook until no longer pink, flipping halfway through. Once sausage is almost cooked, add the cheese and cover to melt.
  • Want an egg sandwich? Add some scrambled eggs or a fried egg to your biscuit breakfast sandwich.
  • Add in some bacon slices to make this healthy breakfast sandwich loaded with protein. 
  • For a creamier texture, add in some avocado. 
  • For even more flavor, spread some garlic butter on the English muffin. 
  • Use biscuits in place of English muffins!

Expert Tips

  • You can make scrambled or fried eggs, but I love the classic folded egg in sandwiches. It looks professional but made right at home so it’s perfect. 
  • How to freeze: Assemble the sandwiches and let them cool. Wrap in plastic and freeze until ready to eat.
  • To reheat your sandwich, you could just microwave it or air fry it to make the bread toasty.
