Avocado & Sausage Egg Muffin

Avocado & Sausage Egg Muffin - An at-home breakfast that blows away the competition at the drive-through! | foxeslovelemons.com

OK, don’t get jealous now. Not only does my husband know how to cook a great pizza, but he makes me one, if not two, homemade breakfasts every weekend. At most, I might have to make a pot of coffee, but sometimes he does that, too. I try to completely stay out of his way and let him do whatever the heck he wants. Most of the time, it’s just a classic breakfast of eggs, an English muffin (everything, always) and maybe some bacon or sausage if we have it. A few weeks ago, my only request was that he make something involving a few of the California Avocados I had around.

Little did I know he would go all Joey Tribbiani and make a breakfast SANDWICH. Seriously though, I will always remember that Joey Tribbiani’s favorite food was sandwiches. They’re definitely up there for me as well. This breakfast egg muffin sandwich rivals anything from a fast food joint. Although personally, I find fast food breakfasts super disgusting, so it’s no contest.

Our grocery store sells loose breakfast sausage, so Jeff used that to form the patties, although you could buy links and just take them out of the casings for the same effect. The trick to perfectly round eggs is a simple ring mold/biscuit cutter/cookie cutter. You place that on the griddle, pour the whisked egg mixture in and leave the mold on until the egg is a firm shape. Combined with a little bit of cheese, a touch of pickled jalapeño in the eggs, and some luscious slices of avocado, this sandwich belongs in the Homemade Breakfast Hall of Fame!

Avocado & Sausage Egg Muffins

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 pound loose breakfast sausage (or links, removed from casings)
  • 2 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon minced pickled jalapeño pepper
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

Directions:

  1. Preheat griddle over medium heat. Form sausage into two patties roughly the same size as the English muffins. Transfer patties to griddle and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until almost cooked through, turning occasionally. Place one slice of cheese (broken into pieces, so there's not a bunch of overhang) on each patty and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, whisk eggs until light and fluffy. Whisk in jalapenos. Place two ring molds or cookie/biscuit cutters on griddle. Spray griddle surface inside molds with cooking spray. Divide egg mixture between molds. Cook eggs until firm.
  3. Assemble sandwiches by placing sausage patties, eggs and avocado slices between English muffin halves.

  1. What a great hubby. Squirrel does most of the breakfast cooking in our house too. I cook all week, so the weekends are my time to be fed. Love this breakfast sammie. Pinned.

    • That’s exactly how I feel, Jennie. I do so much cooking during the week, that on the weekend, I’m just like “no, sorry.” Even when I have a friend get-together to go to (where everybody likely expects me to show up with something gourmet), I’m all about “well…I cook all week, so here’s this package of store-bought cookies. enjoy!”

  2. Thanks for all of the breakfast praise!  I grew up in a family where people love breakfast.  I remember going to the local diner for Biscuits N’ Gravy or Chocolate Chip Pancakes.  Or my dad outside in front of the grill (even in the winter) grilling bacon in a make-shift aluminum foil pouch while my mom makes cinnamon rolls inside.  I love mimosas.  I love omelettes.  Anything you can eat on a weekend morning while sipping a hot cup of coffee.  It has just kind of become a Yates family way-of-life, much like the Fox tacos.  And, I’ll keep breakfast love alive for the rest of my life. 

    • Well, you’ll probably never get me liking biscuits and gravy, but you can keep making me Lori-approved breakfasts ’til death do us part.

  3. What a great hubby you have! Eat your heart out Egg Mcmuffin!

  4. I really enjoy the face that Jeff uses the name “Hubstown” to comment on your blog. “I love mimosas. I love omelettes” <– this is why we'd be really good friends if we lived in the same town. If I weren't afraid of dying in Detroit, I'd move in with you guys for all the good food you're making. This breakfast sandwich is too legit to quit. It's got everything that I love to eat in there. And the photos are gorgeous.

    • Haha, can I just tell you how mad Jeff was when I switched from Disqus to WordPress commenting, and his old username (The Hubs) wasn’t available? He said he was worried about this “brand.” I think it was a joke. At least 99%. I hope.

      You would NOT die in Detroit. I wish I could think of a reason to get you here, other than to visit me. There’s a big Jehovah’s Witness convention next weekend. Would that interest you at all? 😉

  5. I can imagine this is a mouthful of goodness. Nice combo, Lori!
