What up, breakfast dog? (You can flick me.)
I don't usually start posts off this way, but this is SO fun. This is SO.MUCH.FUN.
Not like, a birthday party or anything, but the bread is actually fun to eat once it's baked. It absolutely KILLS any hot dog sloppy nasty bun out there, because it's freshly baked and golden and crispy on the outside and super duper chewy on the inside. And the yeasty-ness goes perfectly with the salty breakfast links. Or dogs. Whatever you want to call them.
And then the little fried egg on top, omgggg. You can leave your yolks runny, which is the best way to go, but since I'm knocked up I had to cook mine all the way through. Not AS fun as it could be, but still, a whole boopidy boo of fun.
And then the shredded white cheddar cheese combined with the sausage and french bread cushions, hoooooooooly. SO fun.
You like fun, right?
Start by cutting your Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread dough in half. Easy. And fun.
Then, using a paring knife cut a deep slit down the center of each loaf half. Fun, right?
Okay, then you brush the dough with an egg wash. This gets the dough super golden brown and sexy. And fun.
While the bread is baking, sauté your sausage links in a little pan. Done. Oh, that rhymes with fun.
And then you fry your eggs in the grease leftover from the sausage links because it's sooooo good. But I forgot to photograph it because my neighbor walked into our yard and asked if we wanted to use his tree trimmer because he apparently thinks our trees look super jank. Wasn't that nice of him?
What you've done is just nestled the links down in the baked bread (brush the bread with the egg wash again half way through baking!), topped with your egg, cheese and a little bit of cilantro. Ohhhhhhhhh this is so good.
Okay, fine. Our trees look better after the trim. Who wants a (breakfast) dog?!Your eaters are going to lose their minds. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
