Polish Sausage Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

Polish Sausage Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

My kid has been coming home on a regular basis for most of his junior year in high school. I always think how rad would that have been when I was in school! He gets this privilege for a couple of reasons, and I am glad that he does. Not only does it allow me a chance to have one on one time with him, if needed, but it also allows me to be able to make him some brunch before heading back to school.

He is self sufficient for the most part and his go to items are always a grilled cheese sandwich or a quesadilla. I had some time one my hands the other day and decided to offer up my services and make him something to eat. I rummaged through the fridge and decided that I would offer up a sandwich but go breakfast style as I know he loves egg McMuffins as well as pretty much any type of sausage. I had grilled up some Johnsonville Polish Kielbasa the night before and that is what sparked the idea of making this Polish Sausage Breakfast Bagel Sandwich.

This is a stunner of a sandwich and I was even in shock when I plated it for my son. The excitement on his face alone was well worth every second I spent making the sandwich, which was only a matter of minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bagel, sliced and lightly toasted
  • 1 whole egg, cooked over easy
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • 3 inch link, cooked Johnsonville Polish Kielbasa sausage, cooked and sliced lengthwise

Start by heating a skillet on medium heat. Add in the butter and swirl the skillet as it begins to melt.

Add in sliced Polish sausage. I like to heat the sausage through while trying to get a slight crisp to it along the way.

Turn the sausage and try to lightly smash it so it flattens. Scoot the sausage to the edge of the skillet.

Crack the egg into the skillet and cook the egg to an over easy yolk. While the whites of the egg are almost set, top the egg with the slice of American cheese.

Pop you bagel into the toaster and toast until light golden brown.

Once the bagel is ready, take the bottom bagel and top with the egg and cheese. Add the Polish sausage on top, and add the top bagel. Smash slightly to get the yolk gravy going, then dig in.

The beauty was watching my kid observing this thing. I should have taken a photo of that expression. His smile, his excitement, and whatever the heck he said about it really just made my day. I asked him how the sandwich was and he said ‘I would rate that’. I think that meant he loved it in his lingo, and I could probably attest that he did as there was nothing left on his plate but a drop of somewhat hardened yolk gravy.
