Shamrock Breakfast Sandwich

This is one of my favorite breakfast treats. It's not your typical breakfast, but it's that perfect combination of savory and fresh to get me going in the morning. You also don't have to wait until March 17th to enjoy it. I eat it year round! 

Since this isn't exactly a recipe, I'll share with you the assembly of my favorite breakfast sandwich in a slightly different format.


Shamrock Breakfast Sandwich

What you need:
-breakfast sausage patties (*see note below)
-kaiser rolls
-fresh kale
-tomato
-avocado
-mayonnaise
-sriracha

First what you need to do is cook your sausage. As it's cooking, prepare your sriracha mayo. You may buy it premade, but I prefer to make mine based on how hot I want it that particular morning. How much you make is up to you. 

Slice your tomato and avocado, and wash your kale.

Next, assemble the sandwich:

On the bottom half of the bun, spread a light portion of sriracha mayo (too much will make the bun soggy and you'll be eating your sandwich with a fork). 

Then add kale, topped with the sausage patty. Tomato goes on top of the sausage, then top with sliced avocado. Spread a generous amount of sriracha mayo on the top bun, then place on top of the sandwich. 

Enjoy!



Note: We abstain from eating pork, so we use plant-based breakfast sausage. I used to use Gardein brand for this sandwich, but they decided to shrink their patties from burger size to biscuit size, which doesn't quite work for this sandwich. I was able to find the perfect size meatless patty from Simple Truth at our grocery store freezer section. Beyond Meat makes a breakfats sausage, though I've never tried it and don't know what size it is. Turkey sausage patties would also work fine, though I haven't tried those either.
