Breakfast Buffet Burger
In Central Pennsylvania, tailgating at a Penn State game starts long before the game kicks off in the afternoon. The best tailgates start with breakfast in the parking lot at Beaver Stadium, and who says you can
1 lb. breakfast sausage
1 lb. sweet Italian sausage, loose
2 c. cooked shredded potato
2 T. brown sugar
1/2 c. sour cream
8 oz. softened cream cheese
2 T. softened butter
1/4 c. strawberry jam
12 bacon strips
6 large eggs
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 c. sliced sweet onion
1large red apple, skin on, sliced
1/4 c. maple syrup
12 frozen pancakes
6 slices cheddar cheese
Combine sausages, potato, brown sugar and sour cream. Form into six patties. Cook over medium heat.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, butter and jam. Set aside.
In a frying pan, cook bacon. Remove from pan. Set aside. In bacon grease, fry eggs, seasoning with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.
In frying pan, in remaining grease, saute onions and apples with maple syrup.
Heat pancakes. Top half with cheese. Spread other half with cream cheese mixture.

A whole plate of food in one burger! Wrap half in waxpaper to help hold it together as you walk around at a tailgate. Great with a frosty fruit and yogurt smoothie.
