My theory is, if you put an egg on it, it’s breakfast. So when I saw that Hungryroot had Stuffin’ Muffins (basically English muffins with stuffing herbs and spices), I knew that I wanted to make a Thanksgiving leftovers style breakfast sandwich.  With an egg on top, of course!

I could eat Thanksgiving leftovers for days, but I usually don’t eat them first thing in the morning.  These stuffing flavored muffins are the perfect excuse to heat up those turkey leftovers, add an egg, and enjoy the Thanksgiving feast all over again!

So if you’re left with a bunch of Thanksgiving leftovers and you’re getting a little tired of reheating them for lunch or dinner, turn them into a delicious breakfast sandwich instead!

And if you’re like me and could eat Thanksgiving dinner throughout the year, this recipe is a good excuse to grab a small turkey – even a turkey tenderloin, like Hungryroot’s Garlic Pepper Turkey Tenderloin – have it for dinner and enjoy the leftovers!

This breakfast sandwich is like a holiday morning for your tastebuds!  It’s protein packed, full of Thanksgiving flavors, and so easy to put together with your leftovers!

Hungryroot Stuffin' Muffin split in half and lightly toasted.

First, we’re going to toast our Stuffin’ Muffin (you can use an English muffin instead).  Once toasted, place it on a plate and prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Vital Farms liquid eggs in a small frying pan with slice of cheddar cheese on top.

Add a little butter or oil to a small skillet and cook an egg over medium heat.  I used a serving of Vital Farms Pasture-Raised Liquid Whole Eggs.  Season with salt and pepper.  While warm, place a slice of cheddar cheese on top.

Warm up some leftover turkey and place it on top of the toasted muffin.  Then, place the cheesy egg on top.

Finish the sandwich by spooning cranberry sauce on top.  I love whole berry cranberry sauce and Hungryroot’s cranberry sauce is so good!  It’s not overly sweet with just the right amount of tartness.

Serve the sandwich immediately.

I know that cranberry sauce isn’t everyone’s favorite holiday condiment.  So instead, you could warm up a little gravy and spoon it on top of your sandwich.  It’s a tasty alternative that will make your sandwich extra savory!
