These sticky sausage sandwiches make a delicious and tasty breakfast when you want something substantial. Full of flavour they are a great start to the day.

There is something about a Saturday that calls for sausage sandwiches for breakfast. It is not quite Sunday, a day where you can lie in and get up late to eat a full English breakfast. It is not a weekday where you are rushing out to work and make something fast like cereal or toast.

A Saturday breakfast should be something tasty and filling that will not take ages, but is different from normal.

My Saturdays are always busy, filled with shopping and housework. It is a day to try and get as much done as possible and a sausage sandwich is perfect for starting the day. It takes a few minutes extra to prepare but will keep you full until lunch and give you the energy to face the day.

Recently Lyle’s golden syrup challenged me to create a five minute breakfast using one of the recipes created by Jo Pratt. These sticky sausage sandwiches are one of these recipes.

To make the perfect sausage sandwich you need white crusty bread. It has to be soft and bouncy with a thick crust to bite into. Inside you need to use good quality sausages with a touch of seasoning. I used pork sausages but you can use beef if you prefer. The bread needs to have a thin coating of butter and to make the sandwiches extra special slice them in half diagonally. Triangular sandwiches always remind me of tea parties and make it look as if you have made more of an effort.

The sausages need to be fried gently until they are cooked though. They should be browned on the outside but not black. When they are cooked chop them in half which makes for nicer presentation inside the sandwich. To turn the sausage sandwich into a sticky sausage sandwich they need to be cooked for a couple of minutes in a sauce. I used a mixture of whole grain mustard, Lyle’s golden syrup in maple flavour and Worchestershire sauce. I made sure the sausages were coated evenly in the sauce then took them out of the pan.

The sausages can then be placed on the bread with a little extra sauce if needed. The sandwiches can then be enjoyed in a leisurely fashion with a cup of tea, before you rush off to do everything you need to do during the day. The perfect breakfast for a Saturday.
