Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 oz pork sausage
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 4 English muffins halved
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Instructions

  1. 1. Form sausage into 4 patties. Cook in a large, non-stick sprayed skillet over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes a side, or until golden brown and crisp. Place sausage patties on a paper towel-lined plate to drain the grease.
  2. 2. Drain fat from skillet then return to stove and turn heat down to medium. Whisk eggs, salt, and pepper in a bowl then pour into the skillet. Cook until top is nearly set but still glossy, then carefully fold eggs over in half. Remove from heat to finish cooking.
  3. 3. In a small bowl, whisk butter until creamy and smooth. Stir in the maple syrup. Toast the English Muffins.
  4. 4. To assemble: Spread 1 tablespoon of maple butter on English Muffin, both halves. Place 1 egg on the bottom of a English muffin then top with cooked sausage patty and slice of cheese. Microwave for 20-30 seconds to melt cheese then cap with English muffin top. Continue making other sandwiches. Serve immediately.
