Sausage, English Muffin, and Cream Gravy Sandwich
Prep. time : 30 min. | serves : 4
- 10 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- 6 green onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced, plus chopped green onion tops, for garnish
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 thick cut Village Gourmet English muffins, toasted
- Sausage and Gravy, recipe follows
- 1 cup grated Monterey jack or white Cheddar cheese
Preheat the broiler.
Whisk together the eggs, water, green onions, and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Heat the butter in a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and stir until soft curds form.
Place the toasted English muffins on a baking sheet and divide the sausage patties among the halves.

Divide eggs over top of melted cheese, then ladle some of the gravy over, and garnish with green onion tops. Serve immediately, 2 halves per person.
