Recently, my husband asked if breakfast sausage patties ever went on sale. He had a hankering for Sausage Egg McMuffins, but didn’t want to pay the McPrice it would cost to feed our family at the Golden Arches. I was sorry to say, no, those kind of sales rarely cross my path. So, when I saw this at Ralphs this past weekend, I stopped in my tracks.
Packages of Farmer John breakfast links marked down to $.49 each! Couldn’t pass them up. I snatched up about a dozen packages and stashed them in the freezer. This morning I tried out my experiment. Links without casings can very easily become patties. Yeah!
The price breakdown:
- 8 ounce package of breakfast links w/o casings, or sausage patties $0.49
- butter $0.10
- eggs $0.40
- English Muffins, split and toasted $1.00
- peaches $0.59
When combined with fresh fruit, these sandwiches cost less than $0.70 per person! Now that’s a good. cheap. eat!
Recipe: Sausage and Egg Breakfast Sandwiches
- 8 ounce package of breakfast links w/o casings, or sausage patties
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 4 eggs
- 4 English Muffins, split and toasted
- 4 peaches
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and preheat oven to 375°.
- Form patties by combining two links together and patting very thin. There will be a lot of shrinkage, so make them as thin and wide as you can. Bake for 15 minutes, turning once for even browning.
- Meanwhile, melt butter in nonstick skillet and spread around. One by one, crack eggs into skillet. Flip once set and cook until done. Assemble sandwiches.
- Serve with fresh peaches.
