Bratwurst Snail Sausage in a bun (but even more epic)

In Episode 4 of Cooking with Chef Philli, our star made us this extremely tasty Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich recipe. The Sausage Man production team tasted it, and we can all confirm how fantastic it is! Made with Hash Browns Triangles from Lamb Weston, piled high with caramelised onions, American cheese and a fried egg – this towering breakfast sausage sandwich is a mighty mouthful!  

Whether you’re cooking at home, or catering for a crowd, these Ultimate Breakfast Sandwiches are sure to please. Packed with complimentary flavours and great looking on the plate, these big buns will bring brilliant results. It really is a full fried breakfast that you can eat on the run, but only if you don’t mind getting a little messy!

Double and triple drizzled with any sauce you desire, but ketchup/mayo and mustard are Philli’s recommendations here. Add these to the oozing fried egg and melted American cheese, and it’s a tough one to eat without a bit of mess. We think it’s totally worth it – just keep some napkins handy! This makes a great lunch or dinner too, and is perfect as a snack with a beer when watching your favourite sport! (Over 18s only – please drink responsibly).
