Fried Egg and Sausage Sandwich

I recently started having gallbladder problems and so have had to cut way back on meats and cheeses. This recipe is one I kind of invented. My toddler and I enjoy these for lunch, but they might also be good for breakfast. (Makes 2 sandwiches)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices multigrain bread
  • 2 slices American cheese (or you could use a lower fat variety)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter (just enough to grease the frying pan to cook the eggs)
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 ounces low-fat sausage (I use the low-fat beef sausage that comes in a long length. The amount is about 1.5-inch long from a)
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat ranch dressing (I usually use less and I personally like the Kraft Light Done Right Three cheese ranch)

Directions

  1. Toast the Bread.
  2. Spread the ranch dressing on one side of two slices of toasted bread.
  3. Fry each egg. You can fry it however you like. I use a tiny amount of butter just to keep the egg from sticking and I like my eggs done over easy with runny yolks (which is great when it soaks into the dry toast). But if you are concerned about making sure the egg is cooked through then scramble them.
  4. Put the eggs on the toasted bread while it's still warm and quickly put the cheese on it so it melts. When I make this I have to cook one egg at a time, but if you have a large skillet and are skillful at frying eggs you might be able to cook 2 at once.
  5. Put the chopped sausage in the skillet to heat it up (or brown it if you haven't already).
  6. Divide the chopped sausage over each sandwich. Since it's warm it should melt into the cheese so try to spread it evenly over the sandwich too.
  7. Add the second slice of toast.
  8. Cut the sandwich in half. You may have ot let it cool before you eat it. For my toddler I cut half of one sandwich up into cubes and she eats it with her fingers. Since the sausage is cut small and the egg is mushy she can eat it with just her 5 front teeth. YUM!
