Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground mild Italian sausage
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 8 slices of Franz Bakery Great Seed Bread
  • 8 slices of Swiss cheese 2 slices per sandwich

Instructions

  • 1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground Italian sausage, minced garlic clove, and chopped parsley and tarragon until the garlic and herbs are well blended and distributed throughout.
  • 2. Form four rectangular patties to fit the size of the bread slices.
  • 3. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • 4. Working in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan, cook sausage patties until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes on each side. Set cooked patties aside on a plate. If you wish, you may drain any excess oil (all but one tablespoon, which you’ll need for the eggs) from the pan before cooking the eggs.
  • 5. Using the same pan, cook eggs to your liking; fried, over easy/medium/hard, and scrambled all work for this sandwich.
  • 6. Once the eggs are cooked, set them aside, along with the patties.
  • 7. In the same pan, add spinach and stir, cooking until the spinach has wilted slightly and turned a darker green color. Remove from heat.

Now it’s time to build your sandwich!

  • 1. Either in a microwave on a microwave safe plate, or in the same pan that you used for cooking the other ingredients, heat two overlapping slices of cheese on top of a slice of bread just until the cheese has melted. Continue until you have four slices of bread topped with melted cheese.
  • 2. Top each slice with one Italian sausage patty.
  • 3. Top each with one egg.
  • 4. Add a handful of cooked spinach to the top of each.
  • 5. Top each sandwich with another slice of bread.
