Everyone loves a handheld breakfast. This is something usually lost when adopting a paleo diet. Lucky for you, this Paleo Breakfast Sandwich is a nutrient dense way to enjoy your sausage, egg and avocado... with your hands.
The base of this breakfast sandwich is my Paleo Sweet Potato Burger Bun. This bun is made from whole food ingredients and is extremely nutritious. Paired with the sausage, egg and avocado, this is a filling combo that will keep you full until lunch.
What To Expect With This Sandwich
This sweet potato bun is quite dense. It not going to be light and fluffy like an English muffin, but it will be delicious. It will taste like a sweet potato. If you press it well into the molds it will not fall apart.
Making The Bun
You will find the recipe for the bun here. You can gather all the ingredients and look over the steps before you move to the next page so you don't have to flip back and forth.
The process for the bun is fairy simple. You will need a food processor or good blender, a frying pan, spatula and four mason jar lids.
These are the ingredients you will need:
- 300 g of sweet potato or 1 medium sweet potato
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp almond flour
- garlic powder
Not feeling the sweet potato bun?
I realize people following paleo get sick of sweet potatoes because we use them so much. If this is you, or you just don't have the time to make the sweet potato bun, I have a solution!
These Birch Benders Paleo Toaster Waffles can make the perfect bookends to your breakfast sammy. And, it doesn't get much easier than that.
The calories will be comparable but it will be a little lower in carb and lower in nutrients since the sweet potato is a powder house. But! Still a good option.
- Almond Flour - Coconut flour would be an appropriate substitution if you don't have almond flour. You can do a 1:1 replacement.
- Sausage - Any breakfast meat will work for your sandwich. Make sure you have a good portion so that your meat to egg and sweet potato ratio is as desired. You can also make your own sausage using spices and ground pork to avoid some funky ingredients.
- Avocado - If not following a paleo diet you could substitute cheese.
- Sweet Potato Bun - If you don't have time to make the bun, these paleo toaster waffles would be an easier alternative to act as the buns so you can still enjoy your breakfast with your hands.
- You can make these buns a little thinner in this recipe if you want less sweet potato. Or, you could make an open faced sandwich but that is just not as much fun.
- You can use silicone rings to make a round egg if desired.
- Make sure your sausage patty is wider than the mason jar lid when you put it in the pan. It will shrink some when cooking.

Paleo Breakfast Sandwich
- Food processor or high powdered blender
- Frying pan
- 4 mason jar lids
- 2 Sweet Potato Buns 4 halves
- 6 ounces Paleo Sausage
- 1/2 Avocado Ripe
- 2 Eggs
- Avocado oil cooking spray
- Follow the recipe to make the buns.
- Once the buns are done, prepare the sausage. Form flat and wide patties with your hands that are a little larger than the mason jar lids.
- Place patties in a pan over medium heat. No need to oil the pan. Allow the patties to brown completely on both sides. This should take about 3-4 minutes per side.
- Remove the sausage from the pan. Clean the pan with the spatula removing any sausage pieces or burnt bits.
- If the pan is getting really hot you may want to allow it to cool or switch pans at this time. Spray the pan with avocado oil and add the eggs. You can make a traditional fried egg or use a silicone ring to make a round egg. Allow the white to cook until the whites turn opaque then flip. Cook to your desired level of doneness.
- Assemble the sandwich with the bun, egg and sausage. Slice or smash the avocado as add to the top before putting on the top bun.
