For a breakfast sandwich like none other… these super easy Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Donut Breakfast Sandwiches are totally legit!
You know what really hurts? When you see on Facebook after the fact that a bunch of your friends got together for a party and you weren’t invited. They posted a ton of photos and everyone looks like they had soooooo much fun. And of course it’s people that you always invite to all of your happenings. Why are people so mean?
C’mon, just because I’m a dude doesn’t mean I don’t like a good
bridal shower baby shower party (side note: I have no desire to actually be invited to a bridal shower or baby shower… it’s just a joke, people).
Thankfully, my über-talented food blogging friends Zainab and Allie invited THIS dude to the best kind of baby shower… a virtual shower celebrating my good pal from the blog-0-sphere and fellow New Yorker, Cate! And, because I never forget about or leave out the baby daddy, I’m celebrating her husband Anthony as well. #dudessticktogether
Cate is all about donuts. She’s always whipping them up… Guinness Chocolate Donuts. Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts. Cinnamon Roll Donuts. You get the idea. Basically, she’s the Bubba Gump of the baked donut world.
Anthony… you lucky, lucky man. Is there a day in your life where there aren’t freshly baked donuts waiting for you when you wake up?
Well, it’s time to return the favor. But no need to put on your apron and start measuring sugar or flour. We’re doing this, dude style.
Imagine this. You just got home from the hospital with your precious little girl and baby momma. Cate’s absolutely exhausted. So are you, but let’s get real… that doesn’t matter. Dudes take care of their girls.
So you quickly go and grab some of your favorite glazed donuts from the store (along with the largest coffee you can find… remember, you’re sleep deprived). You get back home, cook up some scrambled eggs and sausage, slap on some cheese, and BOOM! Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Donut Breakfast Sandwiches are served.
You just won husband of the year.
Now before you go saying how this sounds incredibly weird and blah blah blah… stop. It’s not. In fact, it’s beyond awesome.
I first experienced the epic taste of a donut as a bun at The Big E fair up in Massachusetts a few years back.
I can still remember my first bite of that Bacon Cheeseburger on a Glazed Donut. I thought it was going to just be another one of those carnival food gimmicks… but it was freaking magical.
And now that magic can be had first thing when you wake up with this creative breakfast sandwich.
There’s just something amazingly perfect about that sweet and squishy glazed donut getting all hot and friendly with that salty, savory, and meaty sausage patty. Magic. Pure Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Donut Breakfast Sandwich magic.

Mmmmkay, so we have a problem here, Chris. Breakfast sandwiches have been my PREGNANCY JAM. Like, they’re all I want. For every meal. Sausage, bacon, ham, whatever meat is available, I want it with eggs and some ooey gooey cheese. You are killing me with this donut breakfast sandwich business. SERIOUSLY. I am drooling at these pictures… And I am not just saying that. Next time… Let me know when you make these, k? You’re in, where, New York? That’s not too far from Philly… I would be there in a heartbeat if breakfast sandwiching was involved!!
Hahaha Philly is TOTALLY close enough to NY. It’s just like 2 1/2 hours-ish. That’s a perfectly acceptable driving distance for a breakfast sandwich!
So much yes!! Love the sweet savory play going on here 🙂
Thanks so much Medha!!!
Oh no you didn’t!!! Chris I AM DYING over these sandwiches! Absolutely dying! They look amazing! I just want to snatch that one right out of your hands. How were there enough left to photograph? Did you make a double batch?
YES. I. DID. And to answer your question… I have tremendous self control around food. That is obvious by my perfectly sculpted body. Ok, triple batch.
This is a breakfast sandwich to contend with and Anthony needs to listen to you. I was STARVING that first week as my body was getting used to making food for another human and I wish I had these for breakfast but again having cereal was a luxury back then. Thanks dude for joining the party!!
Hahaha thanks Zainab! I have trouble keeping up with my own stomach needs… I can’t even imagine having to eat enough for two!

I love everything about this post! Except for one thing…Anthony is never going to like my boring baked donuts again now that he knows they should have sausage, egg, and cheese in the middle of them! Haha! But, I would be one happy mama if he made this for me, so hopefully he will take the hint 🙂 Thank you so much for my amazing shower – we definitely needed the dude presence!!
Hahaha uhm Anthony better still like your baked donuts!!! And if he doesn’t, you can ship ’em out to me! I’ll gladly eat them up! And yes, he needs to take the hint, even if it takes some extra nudging on your part! I was so happy to be a part of your shower… and yes, a DUDE was definitely needed up in here!
Wowsers! These are perfection and total comfort food in my opinion! Pinning!

Oh my gosh! This is one insane sandwich 🙂 Donuts as buns is just genius!
