There was a time in my life when I was thoroughly grossed out by different food groups touching each other on my plate. I’d practically gag at the site of gravy from my mashed potatoes touching my corn or ranch dressing from my salad touching my fruit. I wasn’t a picky eater; I just couldn’t handle too many flavors blended together. I was a purist, I guess. I wanted my corn to taste only of corn, no gravy, no dressing, nothing. Just corn.

Not sure when this all changed for me, but it did. I find I often prefer my food groups combined. Now I do crazy things like throw bacon into my pancakes and top my baked potato with barbecue chicken. The way I see it, it’s all going to end up in the same place. Besides, some things really do taste good together. Take this breakfast sandwich for example. It literally has everything you love about a savory breakfast in one sizeable sandwich. Let’s break it down.

To begin with, I baked up eight large buttermilk biscuits. Next I added hash browns. I used refrigerated, store bought hash browns, to which I added an egg, butter and a bit of cornstarch. I created eight mounds of hash browns and baked them! I find this is the easiest way to make potato pancakes that are good and crisp.

I topped the potato cakes with nutty Asiago cheese slices. I love the flavor the Asiago lends this sandwich, but you could literally use any cheese slice you like.

Next, I added some goetta! Goetta is a sausage and grain mixture that is big where I live. It’s typically a combination of pork and oats; it’s awfully similar to scrapple. You can find this near your breakfast sausages in your supermarket. If goetta is not available, then traditional pork breakfast sausage is a great substitute. Fried eggs are the crowning glory. I liked to keep my fried eggs on the runny side. I love how the runny yolk creates a sauce for my biscuit sandwich, but of course, fry your egg the way YOU like it!

I found between the egg and the cheese, my biscuit sandwiches didn’t even need butter. All they needed is one big mouth that was willing to sink its teeth right into each layer. My mouth worked just fine.
