This Breakfast Grilled Cheese is about to be your new favourite weekend guilty pleasure. Packed with bacon, egg, sausage and cheese, why wouldn’t it be?!
Breakfast Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Or ‘Breakfast Toastie’ as some of us may be inclined to say here in the UK. Look, I’m gonna be frank with you here. These might cause you to put on weight by just looking at them. No joke 😂 But f*ck they’re tasty as hell!! And that’s all that matters on this blog 😁 Here’s what we got stuffed inside our breakfast grilled cheeses:
Breakfast Grilled Cheese Fillings
- Sausage – Either ground sausage meat or the meat squeezed from sausages.
- Bacon – Streaky all the way! Cooked to preference.
- Egg – Soft scrambled egg.
- Cheese – For that authentic McDonald’s breaky taste, it’s gotta be American Processed Cheese slices!!
- Chives – Compliment the scrambled egg beautiful.
- Sriracha – Because Sriracha is life.
When it comes to making a breakfast grilled cheese, it truly couldn’t be easier!
How to make a Breakfast Grilled Cheese (quick summary)
- Fry sausage until browned.
- Remove from pan and melt in butter.
- Pour in beaten eggs.
- Cook and stir on low until soft curds form. Remove from pan.
From there, it’s just regular grilled cheese sandwich business. I recommend using a paper towel in between cooking the fillings, just so you don’t rubbery egg stuck to the outside of your grilled cheese.
Alright, let’s finish making this thing:
5. Turn off heat, place bread buttered-side-down.
6. Add cheese, then sausage, then bacon.
7. Add scrambled egg.
8. Sprinkle with chives then top with Sriracha.
9. Add cheese, then bread (buttered side up).
10. Fry on medium until golden both sides.
And there we have it! A super delicious (and super indulgent) breakfast sandwich ready for the taking.
