Ingredients (5 servings)

Sausage patties
500g lean ground pork
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp monk fruit erythritol sweetener
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp garlic powder
-Pinch of nutmeg
-Cooking spray
Other ingredients
5 slices reduced-fat cheddar cheese
5 eggs
5 English muffins

Make sausage patties

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add ground pork and all the seasonings and spices. Mix very well until combined.
  2. Divide pork mixture into 5 equal portions. Using cold hands, shape each portion into a flat round patty slightly bigger than the size of your English muffins (as they will shrink when cooking).
  3. Lightly grease a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook pork patties over medium heat until golden brown on each side and no longer pink in the middle. Repeat until all patties are cooked.

Cook eggs and assemble

  1. Lightly grease a large nonstick skillet and heat it up over medium-low heat. Crack eggs into skillet and cover with a lid to steam until eggs are cooked to desired doneness. Repeat until all eggs are done.
  2. Slice English muffins into halves and toast them.
  3. Assemble your sandwich: start with a muffin half, then a slice of cheese, sausage patty, egg, and finally the second muffin half.
  4. Enjoy!
  • Feel free to use wholewheat/ gluten-free English muffins to suit your dietary needs.
  • Feel free to substitute monkfruit erythritol sweetener with any other sweetener of choice.
  • Use nonstick egg rings to cook the eggs if you want them perfectly round.
  • Remember to shape the sausage patties larger than the size of the muffins as they will shrink when cooking.
  • If storing in freezer, wrap each sandwich in aluminium foil, then place in a large freezer bag. They will keep for 1 month frozen.
  • To reheat from frozen in the oven: simply place the entire sandwich (still wrapped in foil) in the oven at 350°F / 180°C for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
  • To reheat from frozen in the microwave: remove aluminium foil and wrap the sandwich in a slightly damp paper towel. Microwave for 1 minute on 50% power (or defrost mode), then 10-30 seconds on high power or until heated through.
