Breakfast Sandwich with Puff Pastry

These Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Puffs are on repeat at our house. They are super easy to make and taste great. Sausage, egg, and cheese baked in puff pastry. I mean, what’s not to like?!?!?  They make a great grab-and-go breakfast, but they are equally delicious for lunch and dinner. They would also be good for office potlucks, baby showers, and tailgating! Dip the puffs in some sausage gravy and prepare to be WOWed!

How to Make Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Pastry Puffs

These breakfast sandwiches are super easy to make. There are only 4 ingredients and they only take a couple of minutes to assemble. Start with scrambling some eggs. Next, cut the puff pastry into squares. Top the squares with the scrambled eggs, an uncooked sausage link, and cheese. Pull the puff pastry corners to the middle. Finally, brush with an egg wash and bake. Garnish the cooked pastry puffs with some dried parsley for color, if desired.

  • Please note that there is no need to precook the sausage links. They will cook with the puff pastry and be perfect.
  • I used breakfast pork sausage links. Feel free to use turkey sausage links if you prefer.
  • You can also swap the eggs for Egg Beaters or scrambled egg whites.
  • To keep the edges together during cooking :
    • Don’t overfill the puff pastry
    • Wet the edges of the puff pastry with water to help seal the pastry together
    • Can use toothpicks to help keep the edges together
    • If the puff pastry does open up during cooking, don’t panic. As soon as you take them out of the oven, gently press the edges together and they will stay together just fine after cooling. I had to do that with some of the puffs in this batch.
  • Can Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Puffs be Made in Advance and Frozen? Yes! You can assemble these puffs and freeze for a quick meal later.
    • I suggest leaving the egg wash off and adding it right before baking.
    • When ready to bake the puffs, allow them to thaw for 15 minutes, add the egg wash, and then bake. You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time listed below.

What to Serve with Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

These puff pastry sandwiches have quickly become a favorite. I always have a few in the freezer for a quick meal. We like to dip or cover the puffs in some sausage gravy. Oh so good! These are also great dipped in some salsa. Whip up a batch this week! You won’t be disappointed!

These puffs are a meal in themselves. We usually serve them with some grits or fruit salad. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these yummy puff pastry bites:

  1. These were great. I used sausage links cut in half lengthwise as I thought a whole link would be too much and was glad I did. I did have to close them with toothpicks. Will definitely be preparing these again. I’ll also try them with bacon.

  2. They were fantastic! Looked beautiful. I only made three, using one section of puff pastry, one egg scrambled, and three links. Then just followed the directions, voilà!
