Ever have a sausage breakfast sandwich and feel disappointed? Barely any sausage. Funny looking eggs. Tiny little English muffin. Well, folks, now’s the time to fire up your Cuisinart Griddler and make a proper sausage breakfast sandwich. In no time at all. Tons of sausage. Melty cheese. Perfect egg. And a fresh, toasted muffin. This is the way to start out the day! (Although I admit, I have made these for dinner on more than one occasion!)
Feel free to substitute bagels for the muffins. Yum
I wrote the recipe below for 2 sandwiches. You can actually make 4 at a time on the Griddler. It might be a bit crowded, but it’s possible. You can also save time by toasting the muffins in a toaster or in an oven instead of using the Griddler. And you can save more time by making the eggs in a skillet while the sausage is cooking. But don’t cook the sausage anywhere but on the Griddler. The patties get yummy crispy edges. They come out great!

Sausage Breakfast Sandwich using the Cuisinart Griddler
- 1/2 pound breakfast sausage
- 2 English muffins split
- 2 large eggs
- 2 slices American cheese or any good melting cheese
- Heat up your Griddler using the griddle plates. Set the Griddle dial to 425 F and the Selector to Griddle. Open the Griddler with the plates flat, side-by-side.
- Open the tube of breakfast sausage. Cut the sausage into 2 1/4 pound pieces (I cut the log in half, then each half into half and use 2 slices. I save the other 2 for more sandwiches at a later time). Place the pieces into a resealable bag or on cutting board covered with a piece of wax paper. Use a meat mallet to flatten the sausage into large thin patties. You want them to be big enough to cover the muffins.
- Transfer the sausage patties to the lower Griddler plate. Close the lid to cook them and keep them flat.
- You want to cook the patties until done, when they reach 165 F. I like a little crunchy edges on mine. Remove and place in a warm oven or cover to keep warm.
- Spread a little butter on each muffin half. Transfer to the Griddler butter side down and toast until nice and brown and golden. Remove and place in a warm oven or cover to keep warm.
- Spread a little butter out onto the lower griddle and crack the eggs onto the plates. Cook until done, flipping once. Make sure that the yolk is set or close to it.
- Assemble the sandwiches by placing the sausage patties onto the muffin bottoms. Add the cheese, egg and muffin top and serve.
