Top O’ the Mornin’ To Ya.
That’s how my Irish mother would greet us kids as we came into the kitchen for breakfast on St. Patrick’s Day.
When I was asked by Bob Evan’s to create some festive food for St. Patrick’s Day, my first thoughts went to breakfast because of my fond memories of eating Bob Evan’s sausage at our morning meal. As a kid, my favorite way to eat breakfast sausage was smothered in syrup alongside pancakes or waffles. As I grew up, I began to appreciate sausage and eggs smothered in cheese, as well.
So, I created a festive 4 leaf clover shaped breakfast pizza stuffed with sausage, eggs, and cheese to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and I shared the recipe on the Bob Evan’s website. (Update, the recipe was removed, so here it is).
Pizza crust cut into a 4 leaf clover stuffed with sausage, egg, and cheese makes a festive breakfast for St. Patrick's Day.
- flour for dusting cutting board
- 2 tubes refrigerated thin crust pizza dough
- 1 egg white
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1 cup cooked Bob Evans Original Sausage
- 4 large eggs scrambled
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Dust cutting board with flour. Unroll one tube pizza dough onto cutting board. Cut 4 large, 5 ½ inch hearts and one or two stems out of the dough.
Arrange the four hearts into a 4 leaf clover, so that the points of the hearts touch on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Add a dough stem in between two of the hearts.
Whisk together the egg white and water. Brush the egg wash over the 4 leaf clover pizza dough.
Spoon ¼ cup sausage, ¼ of the scrambled eggs(1 egg,) ¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese in the center of each heart, leaving about an inch boarder of uncovered dough. Top the stem with another dough stem.
