Breakfast Patty Melt Recipe

Breakfast Patty Melt
Making patty melts with breakfast ingredients is easy and delicious. These patty melts are loaded with cheddar cheese, breakfast sausage, scrambled eggs, and onions. You can use whatever your favorite breakfast sausage is for this recipe. The sausage is formed into thin patties and then cooked on the stovetop. I used white bread for these patty melts but you can use whatever type of bread you would prefer, wheat would be a good option. This will make only one sandwiches but the ingredients can easily be increased to make more. Enjoy.

Breakfast Patty Melt

Breakfast Patty Melt

Yield: 1 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ medium yellow onion (sliced)
  • ¼ pound breakfast sausage
  • 2 whole eggs (beaten)
  • 3 sliced cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices bread

 

Directions:

  1. Heat a large non-stick skillet to low heat and melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally for 15 to 20 minutes until the onions are soft and slightly caramelized. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate.
  2. Form the breakfast sausage into a thin patty about the width of your bread that you are using. Add it to the same skillet the onions were in and increase the heat to medium. Cook the patty on both sides until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees F.), about 5 minutes per side. Remove from the pan to a plate and set aside. Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel.
  3. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet, form them into a circle as they set. Flip to finish cooking on the other side. Remove from the skillet to a plate.
  4. To assemble the patty melt. Top a slice of bread with a slice of cheese, the cooked patty, eggs, an additional slice of cheese, onions, and another slice of cheese. Place the other bread slice over the sandwich. Melt the remaining butter in a clean skillet over low heat. Place the sandwich into the skillet and cook on low for 8-10 minutes, turning once, until the cheese is melted and the bread is crisp and golden brown. Add more butter to the skillet if needed.

  • 1 cup oil for frying, or as needed

Cover the whole bottom of the pan, or make separate piles like pancakes. Cook until nicely browned on the bottom, then flip over and cook until browned on the other side. It should take at least 5 minutes per side. If you are cooking them in one big piece, it can be cut into quarters for easier flipping.
