As most of you know, thanks to a sponsorship from Jones Dairy Farm, I recently attended the Blogher Food ’14 Conference in Miami. It was fantastic and I’ll write a post about some of the things I learned there soon. One of the best parts though, was meeting so many people that I have come to know through the blog.
Not only did I finally get to meet the Jones Dairy Farm people, but I also got to meet some of my fellow JDF Blog Ambassadors – Taste and Tell Blog, Healthy Delicious, and Poet in the Pantry (who incidentally lives in Torrington, CT where I grew up!)
On Saturday, the Jones Dairy Farm girls took us bloggers out to lunch at Swine Southern Table & Bar, which was totally appropriate since we’re all about high quality pork products over at Jones Dairy Farm.
This recipe is inspired by the biscuit sandwich that Megan ordered. It was described on the Swine menu as a biscuit sandwich containing sausage, fried eggs, and heirloom tomatoes. What arrived at the table was an epic tower of THREE LAYERS EACH of sausage, egg, and tomatoes – all glued together by lots and lots of melted cheese. It was epic. And about a foot tall.
Megan gave it the old college try, but honestly that thing could have fed all 7 of us so she never stood a chance. Believe me when I say that even though this looks like a huge tower, my ode to the Swine sausage biscuit sandwich is very, very, restrained in comparison to the real thing!
I opted not to use the cheese since so many of you are Paleo and/or dairy free, but you could totally throw some cheese on this thing to make it even more delicious! In addition, I added avocado because I love it, but if you’re not a fan you can omit that as well.
While the meat is interchangeable, the runny egg is definitely not optional for me on any breakfast sandwich. Whether you poach it like I did, or fry it in butter or bacon grease, is totally up to you! I didn’t add any mayonnaise or extra butter to my sandwich (with the fatty avocado, sausage, and egg yolk it really doesn’t need it), but you can feel free to slather on whatever condiment you want to truly push this over the top!
