Sausage Biscuit Sandwiches

I participated in another Recipe Swap on the online cooking forum that I frequent.  This time the theme was Breakfast.  I was assigned Sarah's blog again, A Taste of Home Cooking.

Both Matt and I are breakfast people.  We can't skip breakfast.  Most of the time, I wake up starving each morning.  Especially now that I'm pregnant, there is no way I can skip breakfast.  When I do eat breakfast, it has to be something somewhat hearty.  I can't just eat yogurt or fruit.  I need some protein in there too.

These breakfast sandwiches were perfect.  They could easily be a weekday morning breakfast or a made from scratch, weekend breakfast. I was really skeptical of the cream cheese and raspberry jam aspect of this recipe. The salty, sweet, creamy components of this sandwich really make it one of a kind.  Better than any fast food breakfast sandwich!  I tried it both with an over easy egg and a fried egg.  I much prefer the over easy egg sandwich.  It adds an additional flavor!

You could definitely prepare these for a large crowd as well.  People could top their sandwiches with our without the cream cheese and raspberry jam, you could offer bacon in addition to or instead of sausage ... the possibilities are endless!

Since it makes 8 breakfast sandwiches, I plan on preparing them and keeping them in the refrigerator so we can grab, heat and go during the week.  I'm hoping microwaving it doesn't ruin the cream cheese/raspberry layer.  We'll see!  I'll be sure to report back.

Sausage Biscuit Sandwiches
From: A Taste of Home Cooking

1 can refrigerated biscuits
1 package breakfast sausage patties
8 eggs
Cream Cheese
Raspberry Jam or Jelly

Prepare the biscuits per the package instructions.

Fry your sausage so that it's cooked through.  Wipe out your skillet and use it to make your eggs.  You could do a scrambled egg, fried egg, over-easy egg, whichever you prefer.

When your biscuits are done, sausage is cooked and eggs are cooked, you're ready to assemble!

Cut each biscuit in half.  Spread cream cheese (however much you prefer) onto each biscuit half. Spread some raspberry jelly on top of the cream cheese.  Again, use however much you like.  I used a small amount of each. Then, place your sausage patty on one half of the biscuit. I cut my sausage patties in half, lengthwise so that they covered more of the biscuit.  Then, place your egg on top and lastly, the other half of the biscuit.

It's definitely a weird-sounding combo but it works. Glad you enjoyed these!
