I love a good brunch, and not surprisingly, I'm also fond of ordering breakfast sandwiches. Both experiences are even better following a night of overindulgence. After attending a very long party on Saturday night, I stopped at San Francisco's Kate's Kitchen and was delighted to see an item had been added to the menu since my last visit: The Lauren Special.
This egg and sausage sandwich is way better than your basic breakfast biscuit. Thanks to the fluffy scrambled eggs and soft Kaiser roll, it has a light and airy texture to distract you from the heavier (but heavenly) elements, including melted Monterey jack cheese, guacamole, and sausage. I handily devoured the whole thing, with a bowl of fruit on the side, and I can't wait to re-create it at home. To find out how you can too,
1 seeded Kaiser roll
1 slice Monterey jack cheese
1 cooked sausage patty
2 tablespoons guacamole
2 slices of tomato
Thinly sliced red onion, optional to taste
- Preheat oven to 200°F. Slice the Kaiser roll in half horizontally, and lay the cheese slice on the bottom half. Place both pieces of the roll in the oven for about 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
- In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat the sausage patty, turning occasionally, until the sausage is heated through. Remove from heat.
- Reduce the skillet heat to low, and add the eggs. Scramble the eggs, cooking slowly and folding, so that they form a loose, omelet-like patty.
- Place the heated Kaiser roll open on a plate, and top the melted cheese with guacamole, tomato, and sausage patty.
- With a spatula, remove the scrambled eggs from the skillet and lay on top of the sausage.
- Top the eggs with red onion slices if desired, replace the top half of Kaiser bun, and serve.
