A little spicy, a lot messy, and even more tasty!
Ohhhhhh baby yes. Would you look at these gorgeous little creations that have come down to heaven to us in the form of a breakfast sandwich? Simply beautiful.
These are a huge mess to eat because chorizo isn’t really the best to form patties with, but I am definitely willing to get chorizo all over my face/shirt/table/hair/left foot/etc because it is so scrumptious. Messy food is fun. Messy food is good. So embrace the chorizo that is undoubtedly going to be all over you in about 10 minutes.
Here’s what you will need to start your weekend right with my Chorizo Breakfast Sandwiches.
- Ground chorizo from Whole Foods
- Sharp cheddar cheese
- English muffins (I used whole wheat!)
Step 1: Form 4-inch round patties with your chorizo and set them aside.
Step 2: Heat up your skillet with EVOO and try until browned and cooked all the way through. I like to make sure my meat is well done, so I did about 5 minutes a side. If you like to live on the wild side, 4 minutes per side should do! Once these are done set them aside on a plate (or in the oven on “keep warm” mode.)
Step 3: Make your eggs “over easy” by having your skillet on medium heat and cooking only a few minutes per side. Make sure that yolk stays nice and runny!
Step 4: While you are cooking the eggs, cut your english muffins in half, lightly toast, and slather those babies in butter.
Step 5: Assemble the sandwiches!! I like to do egg –> cheese –> chorizo so that the cheese gets nice and melty between the hot chorizo patty and egg.
And finally…… DIG IN!!! This is the perfect breakfast after a big night out. Just enough grease, and just healthy enough that you won’t feel bad about eating something that feels so indulgent. And remember, like I always say, BALANCE is the key!
