Inside Out Egg Sandwiches
George Stella—Low Carbing with Friends
Nonstick cooking spray
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 large eggs
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
2 breakfast sausage patties, cooked
1 slice deluxe American cheese, halved Beth used pepper jack, since I had that
For the best looking results, use 3-inch metal ring molds or cookie cutters to prepare the egg patties. Spray ring molds with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking. See below for an alternative method using a standard muffin pan.
Place 1 tablespoon of butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, salt, and pepper.
Place 4 metal ring molds over the melted butter in the skillet. Spoon 1⁄4 of the seasoned eggs into each. Beth used wide mouth canning rings that I sprayed with cooking spray
Add a splash of water to the pan and immediately cover to steam the eggs inside the molds. Cook until eggs have set, about 4 minutes.
Remove egg patties from molds. Assemble sandwiches by placing 1 sausage patty atop an egg patty, then topping the sausage with 1⁄2 slice of American cheese.
Place another egg patty over the cheese to finish each sandwich. The heat of the sausage and eggs should melt the cheese, however you can also microwave the finished sandwich for 15 seconds if the ingredients have cooled.
