What Kind of Sausage is Used?
Sausage is a very important part of the sausage egg cheese McMuffin sandwich. You want ground seasoned sausage that can be made into patties.
You do not want breakfast sausage that is in round casings. I like to make my own homemade sausage but when that is not available, I like to use Jimmy Dean regular breakfast sausage.

Making a Griddle Egg Patty
For an in-depth article on how to make the perfect egg patty, check out my How to Make Egg Patties.
Prepare the egg patty using one of the three methods depending on your desired egg preference.
The first method is a fried egg patty, where the second method is a scrambled egg patty, and the third method is a fluffy egg patty.
I suggest using an egg mold for all methods. Preheat the Blackstone Griddle on medium low heat or 400°F for a Blackstone Electric Griddle. Lightly grease the griddle surface with butter, oil, or cooking spray.
Place the round egg mold onto the greased surface.
First method is just to crack the egg into the egg ring and break the yolk so that you can swirl the egg white and yolk together slightly.
Sprinkle the top of the egg in the mold with a bit of salt and pepper. A sign that the patty is done when the egg stop jiggling and they are not slimy.
Let the egg patty cook until firm and flip over to cook longer. Before you take off the hot griddle, place a slice of American cheese on the patty to melt. Remove the egg cheese patty when done.
The second method is to break the egg into a bowl and use a fork to scramble the egg together until well combined. Pour into the mold, cook until firm, and flip if desired.
Add a slice of American cheese and let melt. Set aside until ready to assemble the sausage sandwich.
The third method is to break the egg into a small bowl. Add a splash of heavy whipping cream and scramble together with a fork until just combined.
After the egg mold has been placed onto the buttered griddle, pour the egg ingredients into it. Cook until the fluffy egg ingredients are set and flip to cook the other side.
Place a slice of cheese on top of the fluffy egg to melt. Remove when the egg and cheese patty is done.
How to Make a Sausage Egg and Cheese Sandwich on a Blackstone Griddle
Preheat the Blackstone Griddle too low or medium low heat if it’s cold or windy outside. Do not use to high of heat as the eggs will cook too quickly.
If using an Electric Blackstone griddle, set the temperature settings to 400°F. Gather the sandwich ingredients.
Prepare the sausage patties by cutting the log into disks of ground sausage and form into round balls.
Place on the preheated griddle.
Smash the sausage balls with a spatula and a piece of parchment paper. Carefully peal the paper off the sausage patties.
Let the patties cook until they turn golden brown. Flip the patties over and cook the second side until golden brown.
Place on a paper towel lined plate to help soak up any excess grease. Cut the English muffin in half along the pre-cut line.
If desired, lightly butter the insides of the muffin and cook on the griddle until lightly toasted. A freshly toasted english muffin will take your sandwich to another level.
Assemble the Sausage Egg McMuffin
You will be making your sausage cheese egg sandwich in layers. Place the bottom piece of the English muffin first on your work surface.
Add the egg patty with the melted American cheese, then the hot sausage patty, and put the second piece of the English muffin on top.
How to Make a Sausage Egg and Cheese Sandwich on the Stove
If you don’t own a Blackstone Griddle, that’s okay. Use a skillet pan on the stove over medium heat.
Cook the egg sandwich as described above but do it in stages if need due to size restraints of the skillet pan. Assemble the sausage cheese and egg sandwich in layers starting with the bottom muffin, egg, cheese, sausage, and finally the English muffin top.
