Dish Count :: 1 Skillet, 1 Baking Sheet, Foil Some Saturday nights you have too much fun. Well, not too much – you just have fun. But Sunday mornings are when things can get a little hairy, with a couple of glasses of bubbles may being your undoing. Hangovers call for four things – coffee, chocolate cookies, Excedrine, and bad-for-you breakfast sandwiches.
I’m a sweet and savory lover – if there is a sweet paired with something salty and savory I will be all over it like a lion over a downed zebra. Okay, it’s too early Monday for that visual. White on rice? Huck on a puppy treat? Me and any celebrity site with news of Prince Harry, Princess Kate, or baby prince George? Yeah, that’s probably a little better this time in the morning.
Well, I’ve had this breakfast sandwich on my list of Must Make’s for a while. I’ve told you before that I work in construction and project management – working on a great project for Boeing, where we are building the buildings that build the planes! It’s pretty neato burrito. But living in a construction trailer can some times leave something to be desired. The one thing we do have going for us? A food truck parked on site every day for breakfast and lunch.
The guys call it the Gut Truck, and it has a little bit of everything! One of the things they have is the Texas Toast breakfast sandwich packed with everything you see here. But since I’m such a sucker for sweet and savory – I had to switch out the Texas toast for some cinnamon swirl bread for that sweet twist.
So if you’re waking up this morning with a need for a little extra get up and go – this is just the ticket. And if your’e still recovering from your weekend – this will cure what ails ya, whether it’s a case of the Mondays, or just a little too much fun.
And don’t forget the extra maple syrup if you’re looking for an extra saucy sammich – or something just to amp up the sweet and savory factor.
Cinnamon Swirl Loaded Breakfast Sandwich
- 8 Slices Cinnamon Swirl Bread
- 4 Breakfast Sausage Patties, cooked
- 8 Slices Bacon, cooked
- 1 Potato, shredded - *or store bought Hashbrown patties, prepared*
- 1 Tbsp Butter
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 4 Eggs

Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and a paper towel.
In a non stick skillet, prepare sausage patties until cooked through. Place on paper towel lined baking sheet on one half, and place in oven to keep warm. Cook the bacon until cooked through, and place on lined baking sheet in oven to keep warm.
If preparing your own hashbrown, shred potato over bowl of cold water and rinse until the water runs clear. Squeeze potatoes of excess water and pat dry with paper towels. Heat the olive oil and butter in the non stick skillet over medium heat, and add potatoes to the skillet. Cook for 6-7 minutes. Flip the potatoes over and cook on the other side until deep golden brown. When the potatoes are cooked through pour onto foil lined baking sheet in the oven to keep warm.
