Recently I got invited by al fresco to join them for a glamping adventure in Ithaca, New York where I had the chance to participate in a super fun culinary adventure. We were divided into teams and participated in an “Iron Chef” like competition. I worked with Zippy from Champagne Living and we featured al fresco chicken sausage patties in our dish. She was a great partner and we got to bounce ideas off each other. We worked well together dividing up tasks and double checking of all the details. For the breakfast round of the competition, we came up with a Country Style Chicken Sausage Patty Breakfast Sandwich and served it with a side of maple lemon fruit salad. I will share those breakfast recipes with you here.
Sausage Patty Sandwich Recipe:
This breakfast sandwich chicken sausage patty recipe is easy to make. We cooked everything up right on the grill since we were glamping but a stove would be even easier! The alfresco chicken sausage patties are fully cooked and they are the perfect sandwich size breakfast sausage patties. The al fresco chicken sausage patty brings so much flavor to your breakfast sandwich. This recipe serves 4. The judges thought the portion sizes were a little large but my husband would eat that right up.
Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich Ingredients:
- 1 baguette
- 1 package of al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty
(you could easily double this is you prefer two patties per sandwich)
- 2 small shallots, peeled and diced
- 1/2 tbsp butter and 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 8 eggs
- 1 tsp fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 4 cheddar cheese slices
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
Feel free to make substitutions for your breakfast sandwiches. English muffins can be used in place of a French bread baguette. Two tablespoons of diced onion can be used in place of shallots. You can use a single large flat sandwich sized slice of cheese instead of 4 skinny slices of the block. Instead of jalapeno, feel free to use fresh bell pepper.
How To Use Al Fresco Chicken Sausage Patties
Grill or pan fry the al fresco Chicken Sausage Patties about 4 minutes on each side until they start to get a little browned. This al fresco sausage is made with lean, skinless chicken meat and it has less fat and salt than pork sausage. These sandwich size sausage patties are also gluten free. While they are warming up, go ahead and start your eggs.
Put butter and olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add diced shallots and saute until soft. Add diced jalapeno to the softened onions. Whisk eggs and pour into the skillet over the onions and jalapeno. Cover and let cook for about two minutes and then flip. When done, remove from pan. Salt and pepper to taste and divide into four portions.
Cut your baguette in half the long flat way. Grill or broil your baguette until it is has grill marks or is slightly browned.
Assemble your sandwich with baguette, eggs, chicken sausage patty, avocado slices, and cheese slices. Your chicken sausage breakfast sandwich is ready. It tasted great served with this simple maple lemon fruit salad that I created to add complementary flavors and colors to the breakfast plate.
Maple Lemon Fruit Salad Ingredients
- one mango, peeled and diced
- 1 cup of strawberries
- 1 cup of blueberries
- one tbsp lemon juice
- 2tbsp maple syrup
Side Maple Lemon Fruit Salad Directions
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. This Maple Lemon Fruit Salad goes great with the Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich Recipe. You could also serve it with hash browns but the fruit salad is so easy and healthy!
