“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

I was once told to “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”  but in this time and age, when we have to wake up even before the rooster blares his morning cock-a-doodle-doo, a proper breakfast meal is often considered one of the lesser morning priorities.

Personally, breakfast isn’t really my thing. Sure, there is the occasional cereal and pancakes, but most of the time, nada; unless, I wake up really early to prepare something. And during these times that I treat myself to some morning grub, it’s usually the staple Filipino kind – longganisa and eggs.

WHAT is a longganisa?

While the Germans have their bratwursts, the Americans their hotdogs, and the Mexicans their chorizos, we Filipinos have the longganisa. And like most sausages all over the world, the longganisa also has its variants: there are garlic-loaded ones, there are jamonados (distinctively sweet) and my favorite, the combination of these two flavors.

When I pamper myself to a morning feast, the sweet, garlicky longganisa is a favorite, paired with eggs over easy, and another definite must-have, sinangag.

But for someone like me who loves to cook, long-si-log (longganisa, sinangag at itlog) can sometimes be boring. So, one fine morning, I decided to turn this favorite Filipino breakfast into a burger.

Imagine a sweet garlicky peppery homemade longganisa patty, topped with cucumber slaw, fresh tomatoes, atchara (pickled green papaya) and fried egg, sandwiched in a toasted sesame bun. That’s MY kind of breakfast – in sandwich form.
