I've been meaning to post this since the past week... Been so busy with work I haven't had time for much. I have so much to catch up on. But now that the holiday break is here, I can catch up on all non-work related stuff like cooking and baking, reading up on blogs. So I finally used up one of the sausages and cheese that I had received from Hickory Farms via the Tastemaker program from FoodBuzz. (Thanks again for the free samples!) Remember this little package I blog about several weeks ago? The one I got from Hickory Farms. (View post here)
I used up one of the Beef Summer Sausage and some of the Three Cheese and onion wedge (the white triangle wedge on the top) I ground up the sausage in my little food processor and and made two nice sausage patties with them. I paired it Honey and Pineapple mustard and a fried egg. I actually like the three cheese and onion. You can definitely taste the different flavors in them. I do wish I had more. Maybe someone will give me one for a gift on Christmas. It was a totally delicious last minute dinner idea. When in doubt...go for a sandwich.
Makes 2 sandwiches.
Sausage Patty Sandwich
4 slices of bread (your choice)
1 stick Hickory Farms Beef Summer Sausage
3-5 slices Hickory Farms Three Cheese and Onion (Cheese)
Hickory Farms Honey and Pineapple Mustard
2/3c panko crumbs
extra virgin olive oil
Rough chop the sausage into sizeable chucks and grind in your food processor. Once the sausage is ground add in the egg and panko crumbs. Mix thoroughly and divide into two balls. Shape into sizable patties.
Heat a skillet and cook the patties for roughly 5-10 minutes on medium to high heat. Flip halfway through.
Toast the bread and spread some of the honey and pineapple mustard. Place the sausage patty on one of the slices of bread and divide the cheese slices between the two sandwiches.
In the same skillet where you had cooked the sausage, pour a tiny drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. When the oil is hot, fry up the eggs. (one per sandwich)
When the egg is done place on the sandwich and top with another slice of bread.
