Munching: Sausage & Egg


  • 255g Saliccia or fennel and pork sausages

  • 2 eggs, plus a little extra beaten egg

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 small ciabatta, split in half lengthways then halved

  • drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

  • 70g Taleggio or provolone cheese, thinly sliced - I tried it with Gorgonzola as I couldn't get hold of the cheese in the original recipe.

  • 4 thin slices of prosciutto

  • parmesan shavings

  • basil leaves


  • Squeeze the sausage from its skin into a bowl, breaking it up as you go.

  • Add a little beaten egg to the mixture bind.

  • Shape into 2 patties about 2.5mcm thick

  • chill for 20mins

  • Heat the oil in a frying pan, and the patties and fry until golden and cooked through.


  • Preheat the grill

  • Drizzle the cut side of ciabatta with oil and lightly toast.

  • Add the cheese to the bread and grill the prosciutto until the cheese is melted and ham crisp.


  • Heat a pan over a medium heat and crack in the eggs.

  • Fry for 2 mins, then flip to cook the other side for another minute.


  • Place the cheesy bread on a plate, top with the sausage then egg.

  • Finish off with the crisp prosciutto, parmesan shavings, basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil.
