Alternate title for this post: “That Time I Really Wanted to Eat Onion Rings For Breakfast-For-Dinner, So I Did.” I don’t know, guys. This recipe is kind of wild, but I kind of love it. I tried to take step-by-step photos so I could fully immerse you in my mad scientist ways, but those photos failed miserably.
Instead, you’ll have just have to take my word for it: it’s a sausage patty with an onion ring wrapped around it. Topped with an egg. And pesto. Roasted veggies on the side for balance. Plus more onion rings. Eat for breakfast, but breakfast-for-dinner is preferred. Are we on the same page about this?
We have breakfast for dinner quite frequently, but I’d be lying if I said it was anything more interesting than two eggs, a few links of sausage and some hash browns. I wanted to create a new, different (but still easy) weeknight breakfast-for-dinner. The best part of these Onion Ring, Sausage & Egg Stacks is truly the Alexia Foods Onion Rings with Panko Breading and Sea Salt. These sweet Spanish onions are coated in a light Japanese-style breading, and have a great farm flavor and crispy texture.
The combo of the sweet onion ring, slightly spicy sausage and soft egg was pretty terrific, if I do say so myself. You don’t NEED to have the pesto, but it adds a nice bright herb flavor to the meal situation.

Onion Ring, Sausage & Egg Stacks
- 1 bunch fresh asparagus (ends trimmed), cut into 2-inch pieces
- 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 package (13.5 ounces) Alexia Foods Onion Rings with Panko Breading and Sea Salt
- 8 pork sausage patties
- 8 eggs
- 1/4 cup prepared basil pesto
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place asparagus and tomatoes on rimmed baking pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to combine. Arrange onion rings in single layer on separate rimmed baking pan. Transfer both pans to oven and bake 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, asparagus should be tender. Transfer asparagus and tomatoes to bowl; cover to keep warm. Turn onion rings and return to oven 5 to 8 minutes, or to desired color and crispness.
- Meanwhile, on griddle or in large nonstick skillet, cook sausage according to package directions (about 12 to 14 minutes over medium heat, turning once). Transfer to plate; cover to keep warm.
- Place eggs on griddle and cook to desired doneness (about 4 to 6 minutes for a soft sunny side-up yolk).
- To serve, divide asparagus and tomato mixture between 4 plates. Place 2 sausage patties on each plate. Place 8 larger onion rings around patties, and serve smaller onion rings on the side. Top sausage patties with eggs and dollop each egg with pesto.
