Servings: 6 servings
- 1 tbsp olive oil, divided
- 1 lb Ground chicken or turkey
- 1 tbsp fennel seeds
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 6 eggs
- 6 cheddar cheese slices
- 6 English muffins
In a large bowl mix together ground turkey, fennel, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Form 6 patties.
Preheat 1 tbsp olive oil over med-high heat and then add patties to skillet, cooking for 5 minutes per side until sausage patties are cooked all the way through.
Meanwhile, lightly toast English muffins in a toaster, then add cheese slices to bottom of muffins. Remove sausages from heat and add them on top of cheese slices on muffins.
Wipe frying pan clean with a paper towel, then spray with cooking spray and turn heat to med-low. Crack eggs into egg rings, ensuring that the rings are firmly touching bottom of skillet so eggs maintain a round shape (see link above for egg rings), then break yolk.
Cover skillet with lid and cook eggs for about 4-5 minutes or until eggs are firm, then add on top of sausages and top with remaining English muffin buns. Serve and enjoy!
