Cheese Sauce Directions:
STEP 1: To start, place butter in a medium pot over medium-heat. Once it's melted, add your flour in and whisk it in for about 30 seconds.
STEP 2: Keep stirring, then slowly add your heavy cream, after do the same with your milk.
STEP 3: Continuously whisk mixture until it begins to thicken, then add your fontina, gouda, and gruyere cheese. Keep mixing that cheesy goodness until everything is melted and smooth.
Bonus Tip: If you accidentally make it a little too thick, you can add a splash of milk until you get your desired viscosity back.
STEP 4: Lastly, add a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg and use salt to season the sauce to your own preference.
Breakfast Sausage Patties Directions:
STEP 1: Preheat your grill with your griddle already in your barbecue (or use your flat top grill if you've got one)
STEP 2: Lightly grease your cooking surface with oil or butter.
STEP 3: In a medium-size bowl, place ground pork, Prairie Smoke and Spice Steak Shake, garlic powder, sausage seasoning mix, onion powder, jalapeno powder, salt, MSG, and sugar. Mix all of it until they're thoroughly combined, then fold your sage in.
STEP 4: Form a 4 to 5 ounce ball (bigger than a golf ball, but smaller than a tennis ball) then squish them down to make them a ½” thick square patty. Be sure they're slightly wider than your buns because they'll shrink on the grill while cooking.
STEP 5: Time for the fun part. Take your patties and sear for 3 minutes on each side until cooked all the way through, looking for 165°F internal temperature.

Eggs and Bacon Assembly Directions:
STEP 1: Preheat your with griddle or flattop grill. Ideally, you can cook your burger patties, eggs, and bacon at the same time!
STEP 2: Lightly grease your cooking surface with oil when it's warmed up.
STEP 3: Cook that bacon until your desired level of crispiness. Set it aside and keep them warm until it's assembly time.
Bonus Tip: This can also be cooked in the oven at 400°F for about 25 minutes or until desired doneness.
STEP 4: On a lightly buttered or greased up griddle (or flat top grill) that's set to medium heat, place your ring mold and crack two whole eggs into the ring mold.
STEP 5: Season with the delicious Prairie Smoke and Spice Steak Shake, add a splash of water, then cover with a lid for 1 to 2 minutes.
STEP 6: Once the white is cooked and the yolk is runny, it is ready. Be sure to not overcook it! Repeat the last two steps.
Chef's Note: This double egg patty is for ONE burger so you'll have to repeat these steps to cook more eggs for more burgers.
STEP 7: Toast your buns by placing them face down on the griddle until they golden and crisp to your liking. After you take your buns off of the grill, add a generous spoonful of your cheese sauce to the bottom bun. Next, add your sausage patty, a slice of American cheese (you can melt it with a torch), followed by one or two pieces of bacon cut in half.
STEP 8: Now place your egg, a slice of Smoked Applewood Cheese on top (melt with a torch, optionally), two more pieces of bacon, and finally, sauce your top bun.
STEP 9: Enjoy the best messy, cheesy, bacon-y, eggy breakfast sandwich you've ever had.
