Serves 6 (serving size: 1 sandwich)

This sandwich will rival what you get at the drive-through. Freezing the gravy in ice-cube trays makes portioning easy. For freezing and heating instructions, see below.

How to Make It

Step 1

Divide sausage into 6 equal portions; pat each portion into a 3-inch patty (about 1/4 inch thick). Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add patties; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Transfer patties to a plate. Reserve drippings in pan.

Step 2

Combine milk and next 6 ingredients (through red pepper), stirring with a whisk until smooth. Add mixture to pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 3 minutes or until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add eggs; cook 4 minutes, stirring until curds form.

Step 4

Divide eggs evenly over bottom halves of muffins. Top each with 3 tablespoons gravy. Place 1 sausage patty and top half of muffin on each sandwich.

Step 5

To freeze: Separately cool sandwiches and gravy to room temperature. Wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap. Place sandwiches in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; freeze. Fill ice-cube molds with gravy, 3 tablespoons per cube. Freeze until solid; transfer gravy cubes to a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag, and return to freezer. Store sandwiches and gravy for up to 3 months.

Step 6

To heat: Remove sandwiches from wrapping; wrap each in a paper towel. Microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Place gravy cube in a small microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave at HIGH for 1 minute; stir with a whisk until smooth.

Pretty good but messy to eat.  The sauce needed more salt and the eggs needed fresh cracked pepper.  Would make again.  I'm certain my 19 year old will love it.

My husband and I loved this recipe. I made it as written, and it came out perfectly. Tastes decadent, but won't weigh you down. A keeper for sure!

We made these for brunch and were thrilled with the result. The gravy really made the sandwich, though I wasn't sure about it when I chose to make it.

Didn't think the gravy was very good and the other reviewer was right....these are messy to eat! Won't be making them again.
