Cowboy Breakfast Sandwich ingredients are a basic as they get: Texas Toast. Eggs. Cheese. Sausage. Mayo, if you want it. It’s something I love cooking for hungry cowboys, traveling salesmen, visiting dignitaries, and Orkin Men. And it always elicits smiles and groans, as only hungry dudes can muster.


  • Breakfast Sausage
  • Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Half-and-half
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 jar Jalapenos
  • Butter
  • Texas Toast
  • Sandwich Spread Of Your Choice (mayo, Miracle Whip, Spicy Mustard)
  • Cheese Slices (your Choice)


  1. Start by frying patties of breakfast sausage.
  2. While the sausage is frying over medium heat, crack a few eggs in a mixing bowl. Splash in 1/4 cup half & half. Whisk together and then add plenty of salt and ground black pepper.
  3. Flip the sausage and let it continue cooking.
  4. Next, drain some jalapeno slices. (Warning: if you grill the jalapenos as demonstrated, make sure your stove has proper ventilation/exhaust. You’ll have to trust me on this: the fumes that result could seriously rival the most potent chemical weapon. If your stove doesn’t have ventilation, you might want to open a few windows…or put on your gas mask.)
  5. Dump the jalapenos onto a very hot skillet or griddle. Let them sizzle for a couple of minutes and then add a couple tablespoons of butter for flavor. Continue cooking for a couple more minutes and then set aside.
  6. In the same skillet or griddle, melt a couple of tablespoons of butter and place a few slices of Texas Toast on top. The key here is to use plenty of butter as you grill the bread. When you flip the bread to the other side, go ahead and butter up the pan again.
  7. Remove the sausage from the skillet when it’s completely cooked, then drain most of the grease from the pan and set sausage aside. Pour the eggs into the skillet and with a spatula, gently fold the eggs around, allowing them to cook.
  8. When the Texas Toast is nice and grilled, spread whatever sandwich spread you’d like to use onto the bread. Top with a sausage patty, eggs, jalapenos, and cheese.
  9. Finally top with another slice of Texas Toast and then return the sandwich to the warm griddle to thoroughly heat everything.
  10. And then enjoy!
