MAKING THE AVOCADO BUNS
To prepare the avocado "buns" slice the avocado in half long ways, remove the large seed inside and carefully peel away the outer skin. If you want your avocado "bun" to be able to stand upright on its own, pick out which half you want for the bottom and slice a small sliver straight off the rounded part. If you like, sprinkle the top of the "bun" with toasted sesame seeds.
COOKING THE SAUSAGE
Stove-top Method: Place the thawed breakfast sausage patties in a skillet over medium-high heat for 7 to 12 minutes. Turn frequently to brown evenly. Oven Method: Place thawed patties on a shallow baking pan. Bake at 375 F for 8 to 13 minutes. Turn patties over after 5 minutes.*The internal temperature of the sausage patties should reach 165 F when fully cooked.
When the sausage patties are nearly finished cooking add the white cheddar until just melted.
ASSEMBLE THE AVOCADO "BUN" BREAKFAST SANDWICH
To assemble place your egg (scrambled or over-easy), sliced tomato and sausage patty on the bottom layer and place with your avocado bun top. Eat with your hands or with a fork and knife.
