For a fun twist on the usual breakfast sandwich, try our easy breakfast burger. It starts with homemade sage-infused chicken sausage patties. We stir a little olive oil into the mixture to keep the chicken moist. You can treat this recipe as a meal-prep moment. Stir together the jam mixture, cook the sausage patties and eggs, and store in the fridge. Each morning, reheat a sausage patty and egg in the microwave (for 15 to 30 seconds) and build your burger.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

98% fat free uncooked ground chicken breast

12 oz

Olive oil

2 tsp(s)

Ground sage

1 tsp(s)

Garlic powder

½ tsp(s)

Kosher salt

tsp(s), divided

Black pepper

tsp(s), divided

Egg(s)

4 large egg(s)

Reduced-sugar mixed berry jam

3 tbsp(s)

Whole-grain mustard

1 tbsp(s)

Light whole wheat hamburger buns

4 bun(s)

Fresh baby spinach

1 cup(s)

Fresh tomato(es)

4 slice(s)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, oil, sage, garlic powder, and ½ tsp each salt and black pepper. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat the pan over medium. Divide the chicken mixture into 4 equal portions (it will be soft). Gently shape each into a ball and add to the heated pan; flatten with a spatula. Cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the patties from the pan.
  2. Off the heat, recoat the pan with cooking spray. Heat the pan over medium-low. Crack the eggs into the pan and sprinkle evenly with the remaining ⅛ tsp each salt and black pepper. Cook until the whites are set, about 3 minutes, or to desired degree of doneness.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the jam and mustard. Spread the jam mixture evenly over the top half of each bun. Layer the bottom half of each bun with ⅓ cup spinach, 1 tomato slice, 1 patty, and 1 egg.
