When Mr. Squid mentioned he wanted to make breakfast burgers I wasn’t immediately on board. See, we tried out breakfast pizzas once on a whim and the results were, well, not good.

But sausage patties are perfect for the grill. We buy ours from a local farmer’s market that makes fresh pork and turkey varieties. Top your grilled patty with the works like bacon, cheese, and a fried egg. Or keep it simple–I like just a turkey sausage patty topped with thick-sliced tomato.


Prep time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4


4 sausage patties (1 pound)

4 whole wheat kaiser buns

4 slices bacon, if desired

4 slices cheddar cheese, if desired

4 eggs


  1. Form the sausage into 4 thin patties.
  2. Heat the grill to high, then place the sausage patties on the grill.
  3. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  4. Take the patties off the grill. While they cool prepare a fried egg for each.
  5. Place the patty on the bun followed by the bacon, cheese, and fried egg. (Alternatively, top the sausage patty with a slice of tomato.)
