"Sausage Burgers are a spicy twist on fast-food breakfast sandwiches, but a whole lot better. Don't let the pickle and onion scare you off. These are really good." — masterharper

Delicious and definitely "Easy" for a hearty hand-held breakfast! And while I wouldn't make these everyday, they're a nice treat once in a while - especially on the weekend. I used country sausage vs. hot sausage and sauteed the onions vs. having it raw. I did opt out of the pickles and jalepeno slices. And, I used slices of cheddar vs. pepperjack as that's what I had on hand. This makes a lot so I definitely have some leftover sandwiches to send with my husband for work. This is a very versatile recipe in that you can customize it to suite your tastes. Overall, perfect with a nice glass of OJ!
These are tasty and can be modified to your liking. Florabunda, if you are so concerned about fat & cholesterol, surely you know by now how to tweak a recipie to make it a healthier choice. Use ground turkey sausage. Smart Balance Spread instead of butter. Egg whites only...skip the yolk. Reduced fat cheese, or no cheese at all. Whole grain/whole wheat buns or bread. It's really not so complicated. When you see a recipie that sounds good, think of how to make it healthier and test it out! I made mine with the healthy mods and it turned out excellent and was very low fat and high in protien & fiber...most importantly, it was totally yummy! I skipped the pickles, though! Will be making these when camping this summer! Thanks for the idea! :-)
I made this lighter by making my own homemade sausage by using ground turkey and spices. Instead of hamburger buns, I toasted up english muffins. Out of one scant pound of ground turkey, I got four breakfast sandwiches. The boys all really liked them, they said it was different but good. This wasn't too much harder to make in the morning than anything else, really......even with the homemade turkey breakfast sausage. I'll make these again.
Good, easy recipe with lots of room for customization. I personally prefer sausage, American cheese and onion on toasted English muffins. Husband likes it as written, minus the dill pickles and onion. Thanks.
Every week we have "Breakfast Friday" at work. My team demands that I make these. They are delicous!!!
A very hearty breakfast. Hubby loved them. I thought that the dill pickle kind of overpowered all the other tastes. Next time I will leave it off of mine. Thanks for posting the recipe.
Delicious sounding recipe but the cholesterol/ fat content is WAY more than we are willing to risk for a tasty breakfast burger. There must be a way to reduce the negative elements and acccentuate the positive elements! Sounds yummy, though!
