Breakfast Sandwich

Question: “what’s your main dish for breakfast?”

I LOVE breakfast foods. If it’s a breakfast food, pretty much guaranteed I’m into it. If I go to a restaurant and there’s a breakfast menu, there’s a pretty good chance I’m ordering off of it, even if it’s dinnertime.

But when we’re talking about normal, everyday breakfasts, I’m a little pickier.

As much as I love pancakes and waffles and doughnuts and french toast and all sweet breakfast foods, I can’t eat them as breakfast. I’ll happily eat them for dessert, but if they’re the first thing I eat in the morning I’ll get a headache or indigestion. And even with cereal, I tend to get hungry again pretty quickly if I only eat sweet foods for breakfast.

A few months ago, I posted a video of breakfast “tacos” with eggs and spinach and such. That, for a very long time, was what I ate every single day for breakfast. It’s filling, it’s satisfying, it gets me a few veggies first thing in the morning.

These days, since I’m cooking so much for TikTok and YouTube, I’m tending to eat leftovers for breakfast more often – we definitely ate sweet and sour chicken for breakfast a few days ago.

But if I don’t have any leftovers and need something to eat, I’ve been making this breakfast sandwich a lot lately: a buttered english muffin with beets, sausage, frico eggs, and arugula.

It’s tasty, it’s filling, it’s got some veggies, and it is a very, very good breakfast.

Breakfast Sandwich

  • breakfast sausage
  • small handful of shredded cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • english muffin or 1 slice of bread
  • unsalted butter
  • 1 cooked beet, sliced
  • small handful of arugula
Cooking Directions
  1. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the breakfast sausage until cooked through and browned on both sides. Set aside.
  2. Add the cheese in a mound to the skillet, and let melt. Crack egg over cheese, trying to center the yolk over the melted cheese. Cook until the white is set.
  3. Lightly toast the english muffin or bread, then butter while still hot.
  4. Make the sandwich with the sliced beets, frico egg, sausage, and arugula.
  5. Enjoy!
