Foodbuzzing and Sausage Egg Boats

Posted Jun 02 2011 12:09pm

Yesterday was a little rough. The anxiety I’ve been bottling up about the move and my impending dissertation defense started spilling out. Oh it wasn’t pretty. Thankfully I forced myself to go to yoga. It was the mental centering I so very needed.

You know what was also needed?

The fabulous news that I am now a Foodbuzz featured Publisher ! Woo hoo!

I’ve been receiving their daily emails for some time now and I can attest they are actually ones I open up and look at. I mean who doesn’t want to stare at deliciously frosted cupcakes while your sitting at your office desk slaving away on the keyboard?

So it’s only fitting I write about food today, really really good food that is.

While that might look like I just placed an egg on top of a sausage patty, you’d be wrong. Actually the egg is cooked in a little well in the sausage, hence the “boat” in the name. Basically the egg gets to soak in all the salty flavors of the meat. I think the egg is making out quite well in this deal.

So how about I stop talking about it and actually show you how to make it – sound good?

First just start chopping, dicing, and mixing some onion, apple, basil, brown sugar.

Oh and don’t forget the salt and peppa.

Mix it all together with some ground turkey into little (or not so little) patties.

Don’t forget to make the well for your eggs!

Isn’t it cute? Yes meat patties can be cute, just go with me on this one.

Throw ‘em onto a hot skillet so they get nice and brown.

Once one side is cooked, flip ‘em over and crack in the eggs.

Now cover those bad boys and let them do their thing.

When sausage and eggs get together they know how to communicate. So let them have their alone time.

In less than 8 minutes those eggs will have cooked up, the sausage will be crispy, and you’ll be salivating over your stove. And your husband will be eagerly asking, “Are they ready yet?”

Now go enjoy this fine breakfast out on your sunny patio

With your very happy husband who so graciously made some mimosas this morning.

Life. is. good.

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 Pink lady apple, grated
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp minced fresh basil, divided
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 eggs


  1. Combine turkey, grated apple, onion, brown sugar, basil, salt, pepper, and cayenne in bowl. Divide into 4 equal portions.
  2. Shape sausage into 1 inch thick patties. Use fingers to press well into middle of each patty so that there is a thin layer on the bottom of the patty.
  3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties, well-side down, and cook until browned (about 4 minutes). Turn over.
  4. Gently crack an egg into the well of each patty. Cover pan and cook over medium-low heat until egg whites are set and yolks begin to thicken (about 8 minutes).
  5. Remove from heat and top with remaining basil. Serve and enjoy!
