1 teaspoon vegetable oil

4 ounces bulk breakfast sausage 

1 large egg 

1 slice cheese, such as American or Cheddar 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 English muffin, toasted 


  1. Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Shape the breakfast sausage into a round patty, slightly larger than an English muffin. Using a small glass cup, stamp out a hole in the middle of the patty.  
  3. Place the patty into the pan and cook until brown and crispy, about 2 minutes. Flip the patty and crack the egg into the hole. Cover the pan with the lid and cook for 1 minute. Place the cheese on top of the patty. Cover the pan with the lid and cook until the cheese melts, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on the cheese. Serve the patty on the English muffin.
