A sausage, egg, and cheese muffin is synonymous with breakfast, or brekkie, as they say in Australia. Our version of this morning classic uses Wolferman’s super-thick sourdough muffins. Along with cheesy eggs and some secret sauce for extra kick, these are the perfectly-sized breakfast sandwiches.

Start out with award-worthy Vital Choice pasture-raised sausage patties, top them with rich scrambled eggs with Gruyère cheese, and add a bit of heat with a homemade sriracha mayo. The key to getting fluffy and luscious eggs is medium-low heat and butter (because butter makes everything butter, we mean better). And a spatula. Make sure you’re pushing the eggs into and out of the middle of the skillet to form curds, then finish the eggs with a sweep around the edge of the skillet.

One bite and you’ll start setting your alarm extra early to make this delicious breakfast sandwich.
