Breakfast Sausage Patties with Fried Eggs
A hearty family breakfast comes together quickly when you throw some sausage and eggs into a skillet together. The eggs will cook in the fat from the patties, which flavors them, too. The recipe can be easily adjusted, depending on how many hungry mouths you have to feed.
- 1 frozen sausage log
- 2 large eggs
Let frozen sausage log stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. Unwrap sausage, and slice crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds using a serrated knife. Cook a few patties in a large heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Push patties to 1 side of skillet and cook eggs as desired, adding unsalted butter if needed.
