French Toast Breakfast Sandwich

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

This is probably the best breakfast creation I have come up with to date!  You know when you eat breakfast after church in the parish center…well this is exactly like that but in a sandwich.  I am a HUGE fan of putting everything on one plate and letting the syrup kiss just about everything except for the hash browns.  That concept inspired this French Toast Breakfast Sandwhich.  It really is the perfect combination of everything you love about breakfast in one portable unit.  
 Start by cooking some sausage.  I used maple flavored sausage and it was awe-some.
 Crack a few eggs in a bowl
 Give them a quick whisk
 Pour in some milk
 And vanilla
 Along with a few dashes of cinnamon.  Whisk again and set aside for now.
 Crack an egg in to a pan on medium high heat.  Season with salt and pepper. Cook for two minutes or so...
Then give it a flip.
 Slice the bread, I used an Italian loaf.
 Dip in the egg mixture
 And on to a preheated griddle it goes.  Let them cook for 3 minutes or so
 Then give it a quick flip
 By then your egg should be ready and it will be time to assemble.  Add the egg
 And cheese (?!) if you are like my husband.
 Place another piece of bread on the top.
 Holy smokes, I'm not kidding you guys…
 Seriously amazing stuff happening here.
 Everything you would want in a breakfast...
Oh wait, you MUST dip in maple syrup.  You.are.welcome.

French Toast Breakfast Sandwich
(makes 2 sandwiches)

4 sausage patties (I used maple flavored)
5 eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
4 slices of Italian bread
Salt and pepper to taste
2 slices American cheese (optional)
Warm maple syrup, for serving

Start by preheating the griddle to 375 degrees.

Place the sausage patties in a small skillet on medium high heat.  Cook until no longer pink in the middle.

In a small bowl, whisk 3 eggs.  Pour the milk, vanilla extract and sprinkle in the cinnamon.  Whisk again and set aside.

In a larger pan (or two smaller pans) crack the eggs separately and season with salt and pepper.  Cook on each side for about 2 minutes on medium heat.

Dip each of the slices of bread in the egg mixture and place on the griddle.  Cook for 3 minutes or so on  each side.

Once the French toast is cooked, place the egg on one slice, then layer on the sausage and cheese which is totally optional.  Place the last slice of bread on each sandwich.

Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
