Ingredients

  • 450g British outdoor-reared pork sausagemeat
  • 50g grated cheddar
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp American or English mustard
  • Splash of oil
  • 4 medium free-range eggs
  • 4 English muffins

Method

  1. Put the sausagemeat, grated cheddar, most of the spring onions and the mustard in a mixing bowl, then mix together with your hands until well combined. Divide into 4 even patties (see Make Ahead).
  2. Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the patties for 8-10 minutes, turning regularly, until cooked through and golden. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Crack the eggs into the hot pan and fry to your liking.
  4. Halve, toast and lightly butter the English muffins, then top each with a sausage patty, a fried egg and the remaining spring onions. Serve with your favourite sauce.

  1. Tasted incredible, this is being added to the cooking for hungover mates recipes.

    When I was cooking the patty I had trouble keeping it from falling apart, my end results looked more like a cumbling fragment of a meteorite.
    In order to create a little more stickiness I’ll try chopping the spring onions into fine pieces rather than rings, will also grate the cheese into smaller bits. I still have sausages to spare for the immediate cooking but in future will also try sourcing sausages with more fat in them maybe. Will gladly take any tips here.

    Apart from my lack of finesse, it tasted absolutely incredible, take the original McMuffin and times the happy feeling by two, just awesome. The goopy yolk really does the trick here.
    (went with a drizzle of HP sauce)
