Every Sunday, I get the most severe Sunday Blues. As you can imagine, the “Sunday-Funday” concept is totally over my head. I wish I were that cool. But, biting into a delicious sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit sandwich makes me feel better – it is the comfort food of breakfast/brunch.
Lucky for me, Blacksmith in Houston, Texas, makes THE perfect sausage, egg and cheese biscuit.
The photo below features the amazing sausage, egg and cheese biscuit ($7), their croissant with marmalade and creme fraiche ($4), and the kale salad ($3 for small). This delicious meal, shared between me and my fiancé is affordable and so satisfying. The sausage is flavorful and juicy! The biscuit is buttery yet crumbles in your mouth. And of course, the egg has a runny yolk that runs all over the biscuit… yum.
Blacksmith is not your average coffee shop. A number of the items are crafted by renowned chef, Chris Shepherd of Underbelly and Hay Merchant. Although Shepherd is more famous for Underbelly, Blacksmith is my favorite work of his. I just love the simple eats done well. Warning: seating is some times hard to get. Check out the rest of the menu below:
Finally, you don’t have to leave your house for a breakfast sandwich that will soothe your Sunday Blues. Try making a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit at home. Disclaimer: It won’t be as good as the fresh biscuits at Blacksmith.
- Biscuits (the kind in a roll that you bake, I recommend these to avoid all the artificial stuff)
- Ground breakfast sausage from Whole Foods is pre-seasoned
- Cheddar sliced
- Bake the biscuits per the instructions on the wrapper.
- Shape the sausage into palm sized patties (about 2cm thick) (the folks at Whole Foods will do this for you if you ask them to).
- Heat a non-stick pan to medium high heat. Apply 1/2 tea spoon of olive oil to the pan.
- Cook the sausage, allowing each side to brown.
- When the biscuits are done, let them cool down a bit, halve them with a knife (making the top and bottom) and put cheese on the top side.
- Bake the top 1/2 biscuit that has the cheese for 2-3 minutes (until cheese melts)
- Butter the other 1/2 biscuit.
- Place the sausage aside once it is cooked.
- Crack your eggs directly into the non-stick pan to prepare them sunny side up (you can even use the same skillet as the sausage.
- Assemble in the following order: Buttered Biscuit, Sausage, Egg, Cheddar Biscuit.
