A flavorful, filling breakfast sandwich inspired by my favorite, former Southern restaurant.
Total Time:30 minutes
Yield:8 servings 1x
1 can 8 count jumbo biscuits, or homemade
1 pound hot sausage, I like Jimmy Dean
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup apple butter
Preheat your oven and cook your biscuits according to package instructions. Set aside.
Divide your sausage up into eight patties and cook in a large skillet over medium heat for about four minutes a side or until cooked through and brown.
In a large bowl, whisk together desired amount of eggs (see note) with a splash of water and a bit of salt and pepper.
Scramble eggs in a skillet, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan constantly with a silicone spatula. This will help them stay light. Just when the eggs are set, sprinkle the cheese over the top.
Build your sandwich by spreading a generous amount of apple butter onto each side of a biscuit. Place the sausage patty down first, then top it with some egg (about 1 egg per sandwich). Pop the top on, pour yourself some sweet tea, and let all the Southern happiness sink in.
If you're not serving a large group, I suggest cooking all the biscuits and all the sausage, but doing the eggs as needed. You can always reheat the first two, and then quickly scramble up eggs for when you're ready to make these again the next day. You totally will be.
