How to Make Breakfast Sandwiches

For these breakfast sandwiches, we make homemade sausage patties at home before the trip.

If you prefer, you can buy pre-made sausage patties from the grocery store instead to make this camp breakfast even easier.

Make the Sausage Patties (at home)

To make the sausage patties you’ll combine the pork, maple syrup, fennel seeds, thyme, nutmeg, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine.

Form patties about the diameter of English muffins and store them in an airtight container in the cooler on top of the ice. Use pieces of parchment paper in between each patty so they don’t stick together.

Toast the Muffins & Cook the Sausage (At Camp)

In a cast iron pan over your camp stove, toast the English muffins then set them aside.

Next, add a little oil to the pan and cook the sausage patties for about 10 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.

Cook time will vary depending on how thick you formed the patties.

    Fry the Eggs

    Once the sausage is fully cooked, set each patty aside on top of an English muffin, then cook the eggs.

    Lastly, add a slice of cheese on top of each egg and let it melt. I usually loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil to help it along.

    Once the cheese is melted and the egg is cooked to your liking, add it on top of the sausage patty and serve!
