Best Breakfast Sandwich

Chef Xavier Perez - Best Breakfast Sandwich
Serves 1-2
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cooking Time 30 mins


  • 1 Cinnamon raisin bagel (any bagel will do but I love the sweetness of the raisin with the saltiness of the pork and cheese)
  • 1 fresh cracked egg
  • 2 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 4oz pork sausage patty
  • Tomato ketchup to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil spray


  1. Gather all ingredients and tools necessary to cook the recipe. You will need a spatula, a medium-size frying pan and a toaster. It will also be good to have your plate ready as this will take a few minutes to cook.
  2. Start by warming up your pan to medium-high heat, then cover the bottom of the pan with cooking oil spray.
  3. Place your sausage in the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side. After you have flipped your sausage once, start cooking your egg on the same pan. Once the egg is cooked to your desired temperature, the building begins.
  4. At this point, toast your bagel and stack your egg on top of the sausage, then the cheese. Sprinkle a touch of water in the pan to create some steam, this will help the cheese melt.
  5. After the bagel is toasted, add ketchup, then build your sandwich. Slice in half and enjoy!
