Equipment

  • Large Pan & Turner/Spatula
  • Small Bowl & Fork (for smashed avo)
  • Chopping Board

Ingredients

  • 4 Pork Sausages (see notes)
  • 4 rashers of Bacon
  • 2 English Muffins, halved
  • 2 slices of American Style Cheese
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Chutney
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 small Avocado, halved & pitted
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • Salt & Black Pepper, as needed
  • Lemon Juice & Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for smashed avocado (optional)

Instructions

  • In a small bowl roughly smashed your avocado with a good pinch of salt and pepper. If you have them on hand, add a gentle squeeze of lemon juice and a dash of extra virgin olive oil. Takes the smashed avo up a notch, not a deal breaker though.
  • Squeeze out the meat from 4 sausages, then form two burger patties with your hands. Season the tops with a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  • In a large pan over low-medium heat add your bacon. Cook low and slow to render out as much fat as possible. Once crispy, remove from pan and leave any fat in the pan.
  • Turn heat up to a medium, add sausage patties seasoned-side-down, then season the other side. Fry until nice and golden on the bottom then flip. Add cheese slice on top and continue frying until nicely browned on the other side and piping hot through the centre. Remove from pan.
  • Melt in a tsp of butter and scrape off any flavour stuck in the pan. Crack in two eggs and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Baste the whites on the top for a couple of minutes until all the white is opaque, with the yolk still runny. Remove eggs.
  • Place your muffin halves in all the leftover flavour/oil and toast until golden.
  • Stack in the following order: bottom muffin half, tomato chutney, bacon, sausage patty, smashed avo, egg, top muffin half. Enjoy!

Notes

a) What sausage to use? - Just regular pork sausages, no fancy flavourings needed. If you're in the US I believe you're looking for breakfast sausage. You can also use ground sausage meat - approx 9oz/250g should suffice. Don't use ground pork mince.
b) Cheese - American style cheese gives you that classic breakfast sandwich vibe, similar to McDonald's. However, feel free to use any cheese you fancy.
c) Do I have to use a muffin? - Nope! This works well with bread or rolls. Highly recommend toasting whatever it you use in the leftover oil though.
