Spicy Egg & Veggie Sausage Sandwich

The Spicy Egg & Veggie Sausage Sandwich is the perfect example of a simple but phenomenal way to enjoy Veggie Breakfast Sausage. To create this spectacular sandwich, gluten free bread is first toasted and then smeared with a spicy & creamy cheese spread. Next, the bread is  topped with a scrumptious pan-seared vegetarian sausage, followed by a spiced oven baked egg patty that couldn’t be easier to make. Close the sandwich with another slice of bread and you’re ready to enjoy this delightful dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
