The flavors in John's famous breakfast sandwich may seem simple, buuuut wait for it. John combines classic ingredients, like American cheese (my absolute fav), with this next-level homemade breakfast sausage. You can of course get the patty pre-made, but I highly recommend making it for that extra flavor—it makes a world of difference! I can confidently say this having had three of them before 8am the other day. Yes, I was out of control, but believe me this breakfast sandwich is hard not to love!
For the sausage patties:
½ pound ground pork
¼ cup finely minced onion
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more for frying
1 ½ teaspoons ground sage
1 ½ teaspoons red pepper flakes
1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For the sandwiches:
4 English muffins
2 tablespoons butter
8 regular or 4 thick slices American cheese
4 eggs, cooked sunny side up
+ kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (optional)
The I can’t-believe-it’s-vegan mango, avocado, and yogurt smoothie that you’ll actually look forward to drinking.
Bowls of goodness for any time of the day.
The breakfast in bed you've been dreaming of!
