Sausage and Egg Breakfast Sandwiches | Life as MOM

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!

  1. If you’re in a hurry you can cook the egg part (and keep it uniformly round) in the microwave: spray a ramekin and use a fork to scramble an egg. Cook in 10-sec intervals til done. You may want to use the fork to move the cooked outer ring into the center once or twice, but usually mine are done in about 35 secs. Flip it out and you have a circular egg just the right size. 🙂

      that’s what I do, too ~ but, I don’t stir because I’m usually watching the muffins or preparing the toppings (ham, cheese, etc.)… My microwave takes about a minute and a half! Wish I could find $.49 sausage!! =)

  2. I found a hanker’in for sausage biscuits – and used on-sale (mgr special) sausage patties and left over KFC or ‘Pilsbury Grands’ biscuits. Micro the sausage in a paper towel (about 1 min) – cut biscuit, add sausage, micro another 15 secs. YUM!

  3. Brilliant! I often see those links marked down at Kroger–not sure that far down since I don’t really look. Didn’t think about taking them out of the casings. 😉 I’ll be keeping my eye out now.
