Have you ever had one of those Special-K Sandwich Thin Breakfast Sandwiches. They are surprisingly good – especially for a pre-made breakfast. Super convenient – just zap in a microwave for about 2 minutes total. No fuss, no muss and best of all no mess. It’s great.
But then, I gotta ask – except for the convenience, why have these sandwiches when you can make them yourself.
You could have this pre-made frozen sandwich. It’s really very tasty. Or you could choose to make your own sandwich from scratch. Personally, I like doing it myself because then I know exactly what I’m getting. Plus I get to add things like spinach leaves or tender spring greens. Yeah, delicious and healthy!
Sandwich Thin Fried Egg and Sausage Sandwich
1 Frozen Sausage Patty, Country or Turkey
1 Egg, Whole
1 Egg, whites only
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1/4 Cup Monterey Jack Cheese
1 Sandwich Thin bun, multi-grain preferred
Baby Spinach leaves, optional
Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium heat. Once warmed, place the sausage patty in the skillet.
In a measuring cup, whisk whole egg with egg whites to equal two eggs. Season light with salt and pepper to taste.
Place a mason jar lid or ring in the skillet with the sausage. Carefully pour egg mixture into the center of the ring. Cover and let egg set.
Once set, carefully flip egg and remove ring. (Chances are the egg will spread out when flipped, simply push back into the basic shape of the ring). Continue to cook until egg is cooked through.
Remove pan from the heat. Place cheese on top of sausage. Place egg on top of cheese and allow cheese to begin to melt.
Split sandwich thin. Place spinach leaves on the bottom half of the sandwich thin. Top with sausage-cheese-egg combination. Place top of sandwich thin over egg. Serve and enjoy.
