This hearty breakfast sandwich made with a runny egg, bacon\sausage\ham, melted cheese and crispy hash brown is definitely not limited to just breakfast time. 😉

When it comes to breakfast, I am one of those people that almost always skip it. Partially because I’m not usually hungry in the morning – due to that wonderful appetite suppressant called coffee but mostly because I don’t function well in the morning (in the kitchen) from my zombie state. But who said breakfast sandwiches need to be for breakfast? Why not have it for Brinner (Breakfast for Dinner)?

 

Breakfast Sandwich (with a Hash Brown!)

 

This breakfast sandwich is inspired from McDonalds breakfasts. Yep McDonalds. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine which gives me fond memories of road trips as a kid with mom and dad. Whenever we were going to head somewhere far, I always got excited because that meant I got to have a McD’s breakfast sandwich with a hash brown in the car.  Oh the Cozy!

 

As an adult, I still crave this so I re-created it at home so I can enjoy this anytime and tweaked it to my adult liking (read: messy, runny egg style with the hash brown in the sandwich) so if you’re feeling like a breakfast sandwich too, follow along and lets boogy in the kitchen!

INGREDIENTS

All ingredients can be found at your local grocery store.

 

Breakfast Sandwich (with a Hash Brown!)

 

For the meats, I switch it up from time to time.

A few options you can use are:

  • Bacon
  • Ham
  • Frozen breakfast sausage patties

For the hash browns, I put them IN the sandwich.

To keep it simple you can buy the pre-made frozen hash browns and either bake them or deep fry them but if you are up for the extra work you can also make your own crispy hash browns which we have a recipe for here : Crispy Hash Browns

 

 

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

Toast the English Muffins
  1. Slice the English muffins in half and place them on a baking sheet with the insides faced up. Bake them in a 350F (177C) pre-heated oven for 5-6 minutes. (If you have a toaster, use that to toast the English muffins. 😉 Much easier)

  2. When the english muffins are done baking in the oven, I like to sandwich them back up while I finish cooking the rest of the sandwich. This traps the steam in between the muffins and keeps it soft and warm until you are ready to use them.

Crispy Up the Hash Browns
  1. If you are using the pre-frozen hash browns, set the oil to 375F (190C) and fry them for 1-2 minutes a side. If you are baking them, follow the instructions in the packaging until they are golden and crispy. You can also crispy these up in a frying pan on medium heat with a bit of oil as well.

  2. Once the hash browns are done, set them on some paper towel to drain out the excess oil.
  3. If you choose to make the hash browns from scratch, we have a crispy hash brown recipe “Crispy Hash Browns” you can follow as well.
Cook the Eggs
  1. In a pan set the stove to medium heat (medium-low if you are using a cast iron skillet) and cook the eggs for about 3-4 minutes. If you like your eggs less runny, flip it over and make it an over easy egg so the yolks cook up a bit and cook it for an extra 40 seconds.
  2. [Optional and Fun!] Something neat I often do when I’m bored while waiting for the egg to cook is poke the jiggly thick white part of the egg white at a few spots to break it open and tip the pan.  The egg whites will flow out of that jiggly pocket and the egg will cook faster and more evenly. (I find the jiggly part is often the longest part to cook when you’re making a sunny side up egg, so this speeds it up a bit without burning the bottoms.)Breakfast Sandwich (with a Hash Brown!)

 

It’s Meat Time!
  1. In the same pan, cook the sausage, ham or bacon until it is well cooked and browned. If you are adding cheese, turn off the heat and slap the sliced cheese on top of the meat. The residual heat will melt it.
STACK IT!
  1. Once everything has finished cooking, stack it and enjoy it! 🙂

Just a heads up to anyone following along every week, I will be MIA next week on vacation. My wonderful friend Jordan & Mom has invited us up to their cottage so I will be mostly disconnected from the wired world but stay tuned, I have a odd feeling I’m going to probably do a recipe post from up there – because – sigh – I have an incredibly hard time disconnecting from the interwebs.

Breakfast for dinner is still cool, right?

  1. What a new idea to use crispy hash brown potato stack up all-in-one with muffin breakfast like a burger. Thank you Joyce.

  2. i’m getting spoiled, since there’s milk and yogurt and cereal and fruit at my office. aka i don’t have to make something in the morning, and can stay in bed for that precious extra 10 minutes. but i wish they had these!! these sound perfect for any time of the day, not only breakfast or dinner (:

    1. oh those extra 10 minutes are so worth it. I usually hit the snooze button like….20 times a day. haha!

  3. I love the addition of the hash browns in these breakfast sandwiches—one of my favorite hole in the wall breakfast places does this and I must admit, it’s my favorite part of the sandwich!

    1. Definitely my favourite part too! I honestly feel like it could just be an egg and hash brown and it would be still amazing. haha!

    1. Must be because as a kid, I was made breakfast for…haha now I’m the one making breakfast.
