It costs about $1.27 to make this version of this breakfast sandwich at home.
- 1 whole-wheat english muffin, cut in half horizontally and toasted, if desired
- 1 1/2 ounces pork sausage patty, flattened to 4 inches or a little larger than the English muffin
- 1 large egg
- 1/2-ounce slice cheddar cheese
Line a plate with several layers of paper towels.
Place a small skillet over high heat; when it is very hot, add the sausage and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until browned. Transfer to the paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
Gently break the egg into the hot skillet, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook for about 2 minutes, then use a spatula to turn over the egg; place the cheese on top of the egg to slightly melt the cheese. Cook for 2 minutes or until the yolk is set to your liking.
Transfer the drained sausage patty to the bottom piece of the English muffin. Top with the egg; serve immediately.
