Breakfast Sandwiches with Sausage Gravy


We love to have breakfast for dinner about once a week. They had breakfast sausage and eggs on sale this week so of course we needed to have eggs and sausage. My kids love breakfast sandwiches and we decided to switch them up a bit by adding a layer of sausage gravy to the English muffins before piling on the eggs, cheese, and sausage.

Verdict:

Oh my! This simple layer of sausage gravy raised the bar on breakfast sandwiches in our house. WOW! The flavor was amazing and added just a bit of creaminess to the dish. Taste and adjust the spices in the gravy to your liking. We like it a bit peppery so it had almost a hot bite to it. Amazing!

  5. We would do this sometimes. Dad would work nights and want supper for breakfast. She would reverse it and have pancakes or biscuits and gravy for supper to satisfy his needs.
