About the only thing that can help take the bad taste out of my mouth about my beloved Huskers is a good tailgate food spread.  Our team is having it’s worst season in history I think, but we still go and cheer them on, and bring lots of yummy food! Last weekend’s game was no different.  We had a tailgate in the parking lot as the sun came up, and everyone went to cheer on our team with a full belly.

They actually are really easy — the prep is almost all done at home.  I made eggs in a skillet, cutting them into circles that were the same size as the sausage patties I purchased at our local market.  We have a wonderful market in my hometown that cuts all of their own meat.  They make WONDERFUL breakfast sausage patties, I bought some that were pork sausage and some that were a pork and bacon sausage.

I stacked the eggs into a covered dish, separating the layers with waxed paper, and keep in the fridge until we headed out for the tailgate.  I had purchased the croissants at Costco, and had them sliced and in big zippered bags.

We partially grilled the sausage patties the night before, to alleviate some of the grease.  Popped them on the grill, finished them up, added the egg and a slice of cheese, heated them through and melted the cheese and they were ready to add to the croissant.

Turns out they make nice hand warmers, too!

  • 9 extra large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 8 Pork Breakfast Sausage Patties hamburger sized
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 8 Croissants sliced in half


  • Whisk egg and milk together and pour into a large skillet set to medium heat. Cover with a lid.
  • every couple of minutes gently "swirl" the pan around to move the liquid to the outer rim of the skillet, then run a rubber spatula around the edge. Cover and continue to cook until there is no liquid left. Using a glass that is about the same size as your sausage patty, cut circles of eggs out of the skillet, gently picking them up and placing them in a baking dish, dividing the layers with waxed paper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Grill the sausage patties until cooked through. Top with egg, then cheese. Heat until cheese is melted and egg is hot.
  • Serve on croissants.

  1. I miss the days of having a butcher that did their own sausage mixes, ham loaf mixes, etc. That’s it I have never heard of a sausage mix with pork and bacon. THATsounds really enticing! I may have to grind up some pork and some bacon with a little sage and seasoning and try my own hand at making that, because I know no one around here would do that for me. Thanks for the wonderful idea and the awesome recipes that are in your blog.

    1. We are very fortunate to have this little market in town with it’s own butchers. I try to shop there as much as possible!! 🙂
