Start your day with a hearty breakfast sandwich!  This Egg and Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich with Strawberry Butter is the perfect mix of savory and sweet.  

egg and turkey sausage breakfast sandwich

We have a breakfast routine that usually includes avocado toast + a fried egg, oatmeal, peanut butter toast, scrambled eggs, and occasionally pancakes or waffles.  But every once in a while I get a wild hair and make something different.  Enter this egg and turkey sausage breakfast sandwich.

The secret to this sandwich is the strawberry butter!  I mix softened butter and strawberry jelly together and spread it on a toasted English muffin and top it with turkey sausage and an egg.  The savory breakfast sausage and sweetened butter are a great combo!  I add the egg because everything is better with an egg on it, right?  My boys prefer the yolk cooked through but I love mine runny.  Either way, this breakfast sandwich is a hit!

I tried Jennie-O’s turkey sausage and was really happy with the taste.  I’m not one that usually replaces things like sausage and bacon with turkey but I wanted to give this a try and it was really good.  If you’re looking for something lighter than your typical pork sausage you should definitely give it a try.
