Eggslut-Inspired Breakfast Sandwich

This is, without a doubt, one of the best sandwiches I have ever made, and you can easily make it too!

If you want to make a mouth-watering, flavor-packed egg breakfast sandwich, please continue to read on. This breakfast sandwich with fluffy scrambled eggs, smoked sausages, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, and gochujang ranch on a pretzel bun is, without a doubt, one of the best sandwiches I have ever made. I want to fully thank Eggslut, a restaurant specializing in egg dishes, for the inspiration for this sandwich. Their Fairfax sandwich, slightly different from mine, does not have sausages and is made with a brioche bun and sriracha mayo instead. While this recipe is very simple and straightforward, it requires some extra effort since caramelizing onions is a 30-40 minute task. To speed up the process, you can consider batch caramelizing a large number of onions before and freezing the onions for future use.

This sandwich works so well because there is a variety of textures (creamy eggs, chewy pretzel bun, stringy cheese) and flavors (sweet onions, salty cheese, smoky sausages, and spicy gochujang ranch). All the ingredients work really well and each bite just makes you crave for more!

Eggslut-Inspired Breakfast Sandwich

yield: 1 large sandwich

total cook time: 10 min. (excluding caramelized onion cook time)

  • 28 g. or 2 tbsp. ranch dressing
  • 7 g. or 1 tsp. gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • 1 pretzel bun, halved
  • 3 eggs
  • 10 g. or 2 tsp. milk
  • 2 g. or 1/4 tsp. salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 5 mini sausages, sliced
  • 14 g. or 1 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 3 g. or 1 tbsp. chopped green onions or chives
  • 25 g. or 1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 45 g. or 1/4 c. caramelized onions (recipe HERE)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together ranch and gochujang. Set aside.
  2. Toast the pretzel bun in a pan until golden brown. You may add some butter to toast if desired.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  4. In a non-stick pan over medium heat, pan-fry the sliced sausages for 2 minutes. Turn the heat down low and add in the whisked eggs. Begin the stir the eggs continuously with a spatula for 1 minute. Add in the butter and stir continuously for 2 minutes.
  5. The eggs should look curdled and semi-runny. This is the consistency you want. Add in the green onions/chives and stir. Use your spatula to form the eggs into a circular shape, about the same size as the pretzel bun. Add the cheddar on top and place the lid on the pan. Turn the heat off and wait for the cheese to melt.
  6. To assemble the sandwich, spread the gochujang ranch on both the top and bottom pretzel buns. Add the egg and sausage mixture to the bottom bun. Top with caramelized onions and close the sandwich.
  7. Enjoy!
