Burgers in Bed

So yeah, it’s been a busy month.  We never even really celebrate Father’s Day for my husband.  Or celebrated his birthday.  This weekend we made up for it with breakfast in bed…

Sausage burgers on a pretzel croissant.  Oh, with a fried egg on top.  Sriracha ketchup is a vegetable, right?

Though not hungover, this recipe is from The Hungover Cookbook written by Milton Crawford (no relation).  My son gave it to me for Christmas and it has some great recipes.  The original recipe called for English muffins, but I couldn’t pass up the pretzel croissants I found at Trader Joe’s.  They were perfect with the salty sausage.  The addition of the fried egg was at my husband’s request.  The whole combo was amazing.

    Now THAT is a breakfast sammie! While I can’t do a runny yolk, I think my husband would love this! Hope you are enjoying the weather before it gets too hot!

    Oh my gosh, wait until I tell Scott they have pretzel croissants at Trader Joe’s. We WILL be hitting that up on Wednesday. They keep selling out of the Pretzel rolls at Byerly’s and we just love them! That looks delicious! I LOVE a runny yolk!

    This just has me drooling and wishing it was morning so that I could try these for breakfast. I’ve never come across pretzel croissants, but they sound divine.

    Thanks so much for sharing these at Cookbook Sundays.
