What’s for breakfast with Audrey: the ultimate breakfast sammy

Audrey Weiss

My best friend and I spent all of our sophomore year mastering the art of breakfast sandwich making. I’d call us breakfast connoisseurs, but try this recipe out for yourself and be the judge.

What’s for breakfast: the ultimate breakfast sammy.



1/3 of a white onion

$0.75 each

1 large egg

$2.99 for a dozen

2 slices mozzarella cheese

$1.99 for 12 oz.

10 oz. spinach


2 slices whole grain bread



Sausage patty optional, salt, pepper, mustard, hot sauce to taste

Total: $12.21

Start by heating a pan with butter, salt and pepper. Chop your onions and cook on medium-high heat. Add your spinach and cook down until the spinach is wilted and the onions are translucent. Put in a bowl to the side.

Crack an egg into the greased pan. Now, this part is highly-debated between my friend and I. I prefer my eggs over-easy (runny yolk). He prefers them over-medium (slightly runny yolk, but mostly solid).

For the perfect over-easy egg, cover the pan and cook until a white film has formed over the yolk and the egg whites are solidified and white. For over-medium, flip the egg just before the film forms and cook for a minute more.

Add salt and pepper as desired and set aside.

Toast the bread either in the oven or a toaster.

Put some oil or butter into the pan and add your sausage/sausage patties, if desired. Cook until crispy on the outside. Remove your sausage from heat and chop finely.

Finally, configure your sandwich. I start with the cheese, then the egg, onions and spinach, and top with the sausage. Then I add mustard and Sriracha. Perfection is served.
